Blogger Beatrice B. Poulin tests the versatility of 3 pieces in this article on FIG Clothing’s SAFARI Collection.
One glance at the SAFARI Spring – Summer 2014 collection, and I was in love. Feminine designs, vibrant colours and undeniable comfort: yes , this collection had everything to please me! To make things even better, all of their clothes are entirely made in Canada!
Composed of bamboo viscose, organic cotton and spandex, the SAFARI collection is UV protective (UPF 50) in addition to being antibacterial. These characteristics make it a perfect collection for any occasion. To test their versatility, I decided to give two completely different purposes to three pieces in the collection. Here is the result.
The Tunis Hoodie
The Tunis hoodie is a super cozy piece! Practical and cute, it allows me to be perfectly comfortable on a rainy day, with a good book and a warm cup of coffee. For extra comfort, I usually wear the Hanoi pants (another favorite piece!). The perfect kit to prepare my next trip around the world…
Spring is on its way, and I’ve been dreaming of going outside without a jacket for months! It felt like spring this week, and I took advantage of it! This time, I chose to add a colourful scarf to the Tunis sweater for a little more impact. In seconds, I was perfectly dressed for a fun walk in the city. I even spoiled myself with an ice cream. Why not?
Bekily tank top
The Bekily top has beautiful simple and feminine lines. It can be used in all sorts of contexts , even for a chic [email protected] with friends! I chose to accompany this classy white cami with a statement necklace and cigarette pants. In an instant, I was ready for some cocktails and quality time with my girlfriends!
The same tank I wore for my [email protected], at the gym? It’s totally possible, with FIG. The SAFARI fabric is antibacterial and breathable, which makes the Bekily top an ideal option to exercise. Why should the clothes you wear at the gym be ugly? I am also wearing FIG’s IBO shorts here.
Designed with similar lines as the Bekily shirt, this dress is the perfect “little black dress” (it is available in Mineral Red and Roca as well). Its composition makes it very soft and comfortable, while its perfect cut and length make it just right right for the office. In the summer, I can wear it with a necklace and colourful shoes, and in the spring, as in this photo, with a colourful scarf, a jacket, tights and clean shoes!
A little black dress has to be wearable on various occasions! Here and abroad, why not wear the Bekily dress with casual shoes, a leather coat , a cute hat and sunglasses to discover the city !
What about you, what is your favorite SAFARI piece?
