Kowtow end-of-season sale
Ethical and organic New Zealand clothing label Kowtow is currently offering up to 50 per cent off a range of its past-season womenswear. Boxy linen shirts, skirts and dresses sit alongside tailored blazers and cropped pants, as well as baggy everyday sweaters and shorts. The colour palette is a highlight; an eye-catching pastel pink, pastel mint green and a warm, golden tan sit alongside neutral greys, navy blues and creams. The styling in this campaign is also stellar, particularly the use of layering. Take that as a word of warning – it’s very possible you’ll end up buying three or four garments to replicate one of the looks on the site. While stock lasts.
