Plus size styling gets the designer treatment this summer

We’re massive fans of Zandra Rhodes at Now Online, so we were super-excited to receive our VIP invite to the launch of her new 8-piece capsule collection of quirky kaftans and kooky kimonos for Simply Be, available in sizes 14-32.

Zandra says, ‘I tried to look at the essence of my prints that I did in the 70s and make them re-live for now. I’ve been lucky enough to dress Elizabeth Taylor, who was a wonderful style icon, and the dusty rose colourway we have in this collection was invented for her.’

Now’s Style Editor Alison Tay says: ‘Zandra‘s well known for her crazy vintage prints and her use of colour. That’s reflected not only in her collections, but in her life, and here today.

‘What I love about the collection is you can completely wear it your
own way to suit your body shape. You can belt the diaphanous kaftans to
emphasise your waist, or throw a kimono over a pair of denim hot pants
for the festival season.’

Prices from £15-£99.
