Summer Essentials from Black

Shake off the winter blues, summer is coming. To help you get in the mood, we’ve had the pleasure of perusing Black, brimming with beautiful luxury fashion accessories for women and men. Best known for their hand spun, hand woven pashmina ring shawls, Black has expanded into an enviable range featuring jewellery, sandals, bags, gloves, cover ups and men’s accessories.

Sun Hat

It’s terribly uncool to get burnt these days. Opt for Factor 50 and a wide brimmed floppy hat like this one in the midday sun.

Leather Sandals

Don’t cop out with plastic flip-flops; these python print leather sandals with gold detailing will take you from beach bar to dance floor in buckets of style.

Canvas Beach Bag

Hitting the beach needn’t mean ditching all things glam. This canvas bag with leather strap and internal zip pocket is both practical and an object of beauty.

Room Diffuser

Hmmm, it’s hard to beat the smell of summer. Bring it indoors with this scented room diffuser made of delicate honeysuckle, jasmine, rock rose and earthy moss.

Cotton Cover Up

One can never have too much white cotton tops in your wardrobe. This broderie anglaise cover up, handmade in Italy, triples up as mini dress, tunic or beach cover-up.

Rose Gold Link Necklace

Feeling a little chi-chi? There is nothing discreet about this rose gold link necklace that is handcrafted in Italy. Loud and proud.

Tan Leather Tote Bag

Dangle this tan leather tote bag on your shoulder and you’re sure to be the envy of your girlfriends. We want, want, want this beauty.

Cashmere Shawl

We hate to mention it but there can be an awful chill in summer evenings. Little wonder this cream extra large cashmere shawl is popular.

Tahitian Black Pearl Ear Studs

Black pearls are surprisingly easy to wear, for day or evening, for parties or work. We rather fancy snaffling the Tahitian black pearl ear studs for ourselves.
