Easter holiday outfits
It is almost Spring Break, or Easter Holiday, depending on where you are in the world. Most of us are finally allowed a staycation, or a long weekend break away from home for a change of scene, if not abroad yet. Whether or not you celebrate Easter, it is a time to recharge, relax, spend quality time with cherished friends and family and come back to the city, or your routine, a little reinvigorated for the months ahead. And we will take any occasion to dress up, or at least get out of our loungewear for a few days. So we have rounded up some chic and Spring-fresh options to usher the new season in style. Pretty pastels and floral frocks are ideal for Easter Sunday, while satin co-ords work beautifully for an Easter Brunch. Our new white linens are lightweight for a seaside escape, and our bright silk dresses perfects for lounging in the garden or cocktails outdoors on your staycation. Finally our buttermilk pale yellow is the ideal shade for a chic Easter egg hunt. Sunshine optional, but highly desirable!

Big dress energy
Yellow is certainly the colour of Easter. Take it to another level in this Capri hue, the colour of the sun setting on the island’s famous marina at the height of the summer season. A must-have for any summer wardrobe, the versatile Cabana dress has it all. Crafted from luxe striped silk in lemon yellow, this wrap style comes with knotted sleeves and a perfect calf-length, belted at the waist with a chic sash. The citrus-fresh colour way evokes the essence of the summer months, drenched in sunshine, whilst easily transitioning to mid-season in the city thanks to its tonal tailoring. Escapism bottled up.

The print of the season
We don’t do many prints at Galvan. But this one is pretty special. Ideal for at-home entertaining and family lunches, this dreamy maxi-skirt is crafted from featherweight micro-pleated satin in a painterly brushstroke print of cobalt, apricot, plum, blush and neon mandarin. The print is inspired by German artist Katharina Grosse’s evocative and immersive murals. Generous billowing pleats fall ankle-length, with a central slit, for a feminine and and comfortable silhouette. Paired with the matching blouse, it is the ultimate coordinated set for an elevated summer style.

Cobalt blue co-ords
Make a striking statement in primary block colour co-ords. This intensely saturated cobalt satin comes in a mix’n’match set of camisole, midi-skirt, slashed trousers and single breasted blazer. Go full look with neutral accessories for an empowered yet fun look that will take you from work meetings to brunch in the veranda.

An airy maxi
Meet summer’s ultimate airy maxi, perfect for seaside walks, garden ice-teas and that first ice-cream of the season. The Lido dress is crafted from lightweight printed crepe in an arty Yves Klein blue brushstroke. The fresh palette echoes the modernity of the cut, accented by a deep V neck and a cut-out back revealing glimpses of skin. Conversely, the full length skirt and long fluted sleeves suggest Greek goddess vibes. A fine belt ties the waist of this dramatic summer show-stopper.

Perfect for a staycation — casual, easy and comfortable enough to replace your loungewear, this playsuit is an ideal summer companion. An effortless summer silhouette, this lightweight printed crepe playsuit is a joy to wear. An Yves Klein-inspired brushstroke print gives a carefree, imaginative air to the design, which comes in a white and azure blue print. A belted, wrap top with shawl lapel provides a touch of tailoring to this breezy playsuit, finished with floaty bell sleeves and loose, comfortable shorts. Fresh as an uplifting citrus cocktail, this piece will instantly transport you to sunshine-filled travels.

Fresh white linens
The ultimate Spring Break dress, the Riviera style is crafted in embroidered cloud white cotton. A knot at the waistline creates an effortlessly flattering silhouette, whilst the plunging neckline lends a sensual feel to an otherwise angelic style. Delicate spaghetti straps are anchored by jewelled beads in onyx marble. The versatile mid-calf length is finished with an asymmetric hem, perfect for bicycle rides to the markets or barefoot walks by the seaside.

Sugary pastels like almonds favours or hand-painted Easter eggs. Life is sweet in buttery pastel satins, and our Valletta skirt and Corolle top are foundational pieces, available in creamy off-white and lemony buttermilk. As versatile as it is elegant, our lightweight Corolle top should be a staple in every stylish woman’s wardrobe. Crafted from featherweight micro-pleated satin, the fluid fabric drapes beautifully and softly shimmers in the light. The perfect piece to carry your outfit seamlessly from day to night, it can be dressed down with jeans, or paired with a chic evening trouser or matching Valletta skirt.

For the cooler Spring months, an elegant cover-up is needed. Our super-soft silky satin trench coat is cocooning yet ultra-chic and will go perfectly with a slip dress, faded denim or on its own, belted tightly. Pair its shimmering white light with bejewelled velvet slippers or an oversized bib necklace.
