Introducing! Yumi’s second recycled collection… 

Introducing! Yumi’s second recycled collection…  Minute by minute, the days are getting longer. As snowdrops fight their way through cold, tough ground, the advent of Spring brings hope.  So, with our second exclusive recycled collection, we want to show the world that here at Yumi, we are feeling positive – despite *gestures wildly* – everything going on right now.  Most importantly, we want to spread that positivity in the way we know best – with a bright, bold new collection – by celebrating prints that put smiles on our faces and by using fabrics which help the planet, too. Inspo: Our latest offering is a celebration of cheer in its most carefree form. An ode to that relaxed, joyful feeling of weightlessness that comes from being present in a joyous moment. In part, the collection is inspired by our beloved Regent’s Park – spotting giraffes on a nervy first date; ferociously licking ice cream as it... Read More

5 Fierce Animal Prints To Brighten Your Wardrobe

It’s over two months until the clocks spring forward, which means that we’re in the midst of – what feels like – eternal darkness. It happens every year and it never gets easier to adjust.

While January has very little to offer where most things are concerned, there’s plenty of opportunity to... Read More
