kay me’s new lovely lace dresses

Have you seen our stunning lace dresses yet?

Available in two colours, blue and navy, our dresses are entirely made of top quality soft and slightly stretchy lace. Not only that, our lace dresses also hide a few secrets up their sleeves…

Machine washable

lace1.jpg

Yes, that’s right – our lace dresses are also fully machine washable at home! Simply pop in a garment bag for best results, and you can relax and rest assured that your dress will drip dry and need no ironing either.

All items being easily washable at home is one of our key kay me features, and one that we’re particularly passionate about as part of our time-saving quest.

The ultimate wrap

lace2

We love wrap dresses… except when they come undone. Luckily, while our jersey wrap dresses feature a special button and tab closure, our new lace dresses are designed to look like a wrap, but keep all the coverage and security of a full skirt.

Perfect for parties and special events, pair our lace dresses with simple accessories such as our silk-wool blend stoles and bolero style cardigan.

Sheer and solid

With a charming balance between sheer and solid, our lace dresses provide coverage while revealing just a subtle hint of skin. The main body of the dress is layered with our special stretchy inner fabric, while the sleeves are left sheer for a touch of elegance.

Enjoy tying the waist ribbon in a variety of ways, from traditional bows to more simple or complicated styles.

Introducing… New Tweed Jackets and Dresses, from kay me

Chic, elegant and timeless – our new tweed jackets and blousing dresses are a great choice for layering in autumn weather and beyond.

Our new jackets are made with a beautiful texture and mix of colours in both white and navy. The navy fabric has added depth with a silver thread, and our stunning white has a subtle gold thread running through.

Feature buttons create a visual highlight, with the round shape echoed in the collarless design and double pockets with rounded edges. Naturally, here at kay me we love practicality in our designs, and the four pockets of our jackets are the perfect size for small essentials such as keys and cosmetics, and business and metro cards.

Our signature blousing dresses are back with light chiffon tops that flow softly over the waistband of the tight-fitting tweed skirts.

Available in navy and white, pair with the matching jacket or make a statement by wearing with contrasting colours: our dresses look great with their opposite partner jackets, as well as with kay me suit jackets, and tweed jackets worn with plain and patterned kay me dresses are a wonderful way to round out your wardrobe for the coming season.

Introducing… New Riders Jackets, from kay me

We’re getting in the mood for autumn at kay me HQ in Tokyo! One of our favourite ways to mark the changing of the seasons is to celebrate with lovely new outerwear – just like our new riders jackets…

kay me’s biker style jackets are already very popular here in Tokyo, and this year we’re excited to introduce our new collarless riders jackets. Made from the same soft, stretchy and washable faux-leather (it’s vegan-friendly too!) as our other jackets, this new iteration is a feminine take on a moto style, with sleek lines and a striking zip closure.

Our new riders jackets are available in three colours:

Navy

Grey

A soft pastel, this grey jacket is a wonderful match with plain dresses and monochrome geometrics such as our striped dresses (coming soon!). Wear with our new stretch lace skirts, or even as a substitute for a suit jacket.

Caramel

Introducing… Beautiful Bella, from kay me

We’re no strangers to the beauty of a floral print here at kay me, (you can see all our floral dresses here!), and this season we’re very excited to show off one of our newest print, Bella.

Available in three colours, pink, mint blue and greige (grey-beige), and two of our most popular styles, venus drape and cache-coeur, Bella makes a great addition to any wardrobe.

bellas01.jpg

According to Yuko from our atelier team in Ginza, the name Bella was chosen for this print from the Italian word meaning beautiful, and our dresses are not just visually beautiful, they’re also constructed with an eye to detail and craftsmanship that is signature to our made in Tokyo studio.

Working with brand founder and lead designer Junko Kemi, Yuko changed the shades and tones of our Bella print until she was satisfied with the final three colours, each tailored to match the different styles and suitable for a variety of occasions.

Pink: With a mix of bordeaux and pastel shades, these beautiful gradated flowers are a grown-up way to take on cute pink florals.

bellablue.jpg

Mint blue: We also love a cool and sweet flower print, perfect for enjoying the transition from summer to autumn, with gradients starting from deep navy blue.

bellabeige.jpg

Greige: The tones for this print colour were kept almost to the original, but with an emphasis on the monotone flowers keeping it fresh for the new autumn season.

Pair these charming floral dresses with matching kay me suit jackets in white, beige, navy or grey for the office, with our made in Japan knitwear for chilly days and even our biker jackets (new colours and moto styles coming soon!) for fuss-free weekends on the go.
