How to wear it

Styling Talitha’s Maasai box tunic at home or on holiday

Even though autumn has arrived, our bright Maasai Embroidered Box Tunic is a great transitional piece for weekend wear or holiday breaks

Just because the cooler weather is on its way, it doesn’t mean you have to turn to your warm-weather clothes just yet. Our Maasai-inspired hand-embroidered tunic adds a wonderful burst of colour to an outfit and can be worn casually on holiday or smartened up for city living. “You can throw this over a bathing suit and team it with flip-flops and a straw beach bag on vacation or wear it as a day dress in the city paired with gorgeous leather flats, an oversized denim jacket and a statement mini-bag,” says Talitha co-founder Kim Hersov. “It’s so fun to wear bright colours when the weather starts to fade and although this dress looks as if it might be boxy on the body, it’s actually gently roomy on top and beautifully slimming on the thigh without being tight.”

Like our embroidered pinafore dress, there are so many elements that have come together to make this dress special. “The rows of tiny wooden beads at the neckline and hem have all been hand-sewn by craftsmen at our atelier in India,” says Talitha co-founder Shon Randhawa. “The cowrie shells were altered using a unique process that removed the shiny surface and replaced it with a matte finish, while the mint, navy and stone embroidery, much of which was inspired by designs found on traditional Zulu baskets, was all hand crafted. And as always, the ombre tassels that tie the open neckline together are handmade and cut.”

To get the look above, team our Maasai box tunic with a  Chloé bracelet bag, Álvaro flats and a Panama hat from J.Crew.
