Sportswear inspired shapes remain at the heart of this season’s offering, but are softened with light linen, organdie, and organic velour. Cuts are kept simple but the bold, contrast panelling and chunky hardware mean each piece makes its own statement; no layering or ‘dressing up’ needed. Easy dressing as its best. Riyka’s quest for sustainability doesn’t end with designing garments with longevity in mind. They are careful to work with organic, fairtrade and recycled materials wherever possible and, additionally, have teamed up with two charities in order to minimise waste and make the most of their fabric scraps. There is complete transparency where their production is concerned – they know where their clothes are made and who made them. Riyka are not only doing things their own way, they’re doing it the right way.
