A new spin on classic fashion
Introducing Tu’s exclusive new launch, created by rising design star Genevieve Devine.
The Tu style team have seen a lot of fashion trends come and go, but great clothes still have the power to stop us in our tracks. And our fashion hearts skipped a beat when we saw Tu’s first Graduate Fashion Week collection dangling from the rails in the showroom. The range was adapted from Genevieve Devine’s debut catwalk show after she won a scholarship with the Tu design team, and features the details that have already become her signature: a washed-out palette, tonal embroidery and billowy silhouettes. Genevieve also knows her way around a vintage detail, like the unexpected – but totally perfect – sailor collar on her charming broderie dress (above).
The white summer dress isn’t the only modern style essential to get sprinkled with some of Genevieve’s magic. We love the way she’s reworked the classic jumpsuit with embroidery, a drawstring waist and an irresistible sage green palette.
If you haven’t already strapped yourself into a pair of dungarees, this pair is your fashion tipping point – with a flattering wide-leg cut and summer-ready ivory coming together for instant chic. Play off their tomboy charm with a romantic sage green blouse (we all swooned over the bow-tie sleeves), also from Genevieve’s collection.
