Dreaming of a Tropical Paradise

It’s that time of the year when the tropics are calling – we down here in the Southern Hemisphere are feeling the effects of the cold dark days of winter.

When I worked as a costume designer in the Australian Film Industry, it was interesting to see when we were shooting scenes in winter time which were set in Summer – how hard it was for the actors to act hot – loose limbed, a bit slow and languid – when it’s cold your body sort of contracts against the chilliness – you have completely different demeanour when you’re cold.

I remember floating in the warm buoyant waters of Lombok after snorkelling around a reef of stunning colours and myriad life forms – just bobbing on the water’s edge with no effort at all, completely relaxed and carefree – warm water, glistening and sparkling, warm air – it was truly heavenly.

Betty Diamond has perfect solutions for a tropical holiday – the swimsuit is perfect with a sarong or our draw string pants for sitting at the bar or lounging by the pool and have a look at our sarong tie skirt paired with the one piece swimsuit for a really sophisticated sunset cocktails look.

We also have the beautiful, floaty beach robes – elegant and sensual.

The curvy kaftans are practical and very versatile – accessorise your own individual way try the silk/linen range with a low slung belt and statement jewellery works with all our garments as they are so classic. The silk/cotton range is slightly see through, light, floaty and very feminine.
