Molokini has a base colour of medium orchid purple.  The print is splashed with hints of animal spots that companionably mingle with wispy flourishes in the colour of sand.  Just a few subtle gold coloured embellishments complete the look.  Luxurious in colour, luxurious in silk, the end result is a striking kaftan with an overall feel of gentle movement and abundant life.

Worn casually with jeans, Molokini is perfect for a stroll around the botanic gardens, meeting up with good friends for a coffee,  or helping out at your local charity store.  

If you’re in the mood to show off your curves, add some shape by tucking a little of your kaftan into the front of your jeans (aka the french tuck), or knot your kaftan at the side.  As well as adding shape, you’re also creating a more casual feel to your outfit whilst remaining super stylish.

Alternatively, enhance the gold coloured embellishments by adding your favourite sparkling jewellery, a pair of slimline black pants and some heels or sandals, and you’re now ready to wow your friends whilst hosting a fabulous evening dinner party, spending time with your special someone at a local wine bar, or heading out to the premiere of a new Chris Hemsworth film!

Whatever your fancy, Molokini will not let you down.
