Top 10 Pieces For February

February, as the shortest month of the year, can often be overlooked when it comes to updating your wardrobe.

The 5 Outfits You Can Dress Up Or Down

Yumi Style Edit: What We’re Wearing In June

Parting with your winter wardrobe usually feels like a blissful celebration. However, given our celebrations are more low-key than ever this year (and confined by a limited guest list), you’d be forgiven for feeling a little underwhelmed by the arrival of June. Not to mention the hesitant risk you take when buying an outfit that may never see past the front door, let alone a suitcase.

Grasse: Our New Inspiration 

The changing of the weather and the transition into official springtime means it’s time for one thing – the launch of our new collection. And since we’re sticklers for spin-offs, we’re keep with the French theme, saying au revoir to Paris (in our very best French accent), and heading south. And there’s only one destination on our mind: the quaint town of Grasse.  Found in the French Riviera – not too far from Nice or Cannes – this idyllic town is slightly sloped due to its proximity to the Alps and shows off a rustic landscape surrounded by stone houses. But you...
