For High Summer 2019 Beulah has collaborated with Candice Lake, an Australian born photographer and contributing editor at Vogue Australia. The collection is a limited edition capsule, inspired by Candice’s Australian heritage and love for travel.
Beulah was founded on a vision to empower women, bringing freedom through employment to vulnerable, at risk or trafficked women. Passionate about helping women to look and feel beautiful but also educating women on the issues of modern slavery to be an agent of change, creating a movement that goes beyond just the brand itself and forms a community of people with shared passions and values.
“I have a love affair with colour and I wear a lot of bold statement pieces mixed with classic staples.”
Candice states her love of bold colour and patterns, as well as the mix of statement pieces with more staple, basic pieces, which is very much the aesthetic of Beulah making the collaboration a perfect partnership.
The collection includes soft cottons, linens and beautiful sand-washed silks making it easy, comfortable and wearable for High Summer. The patterns include gorgeous motifs and hand painted stripes with beautiful, bold garden florals making for a beautiful collection bold in colour.
“We wanted to make a collection that was chic although incredibly versatile and wearable for High Summer – something that would take you from the beach to dinner.”
Speaking of the High Summer collaboration Candice mentions how she wanted to design a collection with an easy but beautiful aesthetic that you could just throw into a suitcase. This collection would take you through the summer with ease as the pieces are suitable for any occasion, whether that be weddings, beach days, nights in the city, countryside and seaside.
“I believe that empowering women through education and employment is the greatest gift you can give a women. This has been their ethos from day one. What a wonderful thing to be apart of. I am so inspired by this.”
Each piece from the collection has been carefully manufactured by artisans in India and Bangladesh, incorporating highly skilled hand crafted techniques such as hand weaving and embroidery.
A selection of styles from the capsule collection is directly impacting small charities and community groups working with vulnerable and trafficked women in India. These charity partners offer fair wages and teach the women employable skills to provide them and their families with a sustainable livelihood.
