The print of the Oahu kaftan is quite arty and it would not be surprising to find that it had been painted by Jackson Pollock (it hasn’t been by the way!).  With a definite city vibe, this kaftan would not be out of place at the trendiest rooftop bar in any of Australia’s largest cities.  Surrounded by a group of friends, flirting with the bar staff (or is that just me?), and generally kicking up your heels.  Oahu is a kaftan that has good times written all over it.

The graceful look of a silk chiffon fabric is flattering for all shapes and sizes.  The fabric falls around your body, skimming over any lumps and bumps, and helping to create a streamlined silhouette.

A crisp, fresh, look is created when wearing the Oahu kaftan with sandals and pristine white pants, or create a more sultry look by pairing with black pants and killer heels.

As is normal for the Laloom kaftan, Oahu is no one trick pony.  You can wear it just as successfully at the beach over your bathers, as you can whilst hosting your next charitable function. 

Not only fantastic for activities on the home front, Oahu is an ideal travel companion.  Space in your suitcase is usually limited, which makes it vital to take your most versatile and easy to care for clothes with you.  Versatile, bright, and bubbly, Oahu is a great choice.

Width Measurements:

The one size kaftan has an inner side seam with a circumference of 140 cm and comfortably fits Australian sizes 8 through to 18.

The plus size kaftan has a circumference of 210 cm and will comfortably fit up to an Australian size 24.

Length Measurements:

Both the one size and the plus size kaftans are 82 cm in length from the shoulder to the base of the hem.

To correctly choose your size, please measure yourself at your widest point to ensure the most comfortable fit for you!
