Walker & Wade

 

HilaryLast summer, while visiting Nantucket, I had the pleasure of sitting next to Laurette Kittle at dinner. Charming and full of life, I liked her immediately and started following her on Instagram. I had no idea that she was the founder of Walker & Wade until I saw her pictures of gorgeous kaftans . . . or as she likes to call them “Goddess Kaftans.” We reconnected and I found out the history of her new line. Walker & Wade 1Laurette has two sons who are avid surfers and when they were little she found herself at the beach all day with no time to change for dinner. Still wanting to look nice for the evening, she found that the kaftan was the easiest piece to dress up for a night on the town. And thus her “Beach-to-Table” concept was born. She also feels that women of any age or size should feel like a goddess when dressed in her kaftans. She created her line with all this in mind and her pieces are flattering, sexy, and soft to the touch. They can be worn over a bathing suit, a slip, nude underwear, belted, or free flowing. Paired with her beaded necklaces and purse, and you are ready for anything summer has to offer.

  6. All of my Walker and Wade designs look and feel beautiful on. Laurette’s designs capture the feel of Bali exquisitely.

  7. Laurette’s “Goddess Kaftan” is What to Wear EVERYwhere! I pack it in my suitcase and take it with me wherever I may be traveling, from the beaches of Hvar Croatia, to the Biltmore in Coral Gables, to a friend’s pool in Kansas City, to my pool in Pinehurst, N.C. The material breathes and flows and it never wrinkles. The colors and patterns are Art. (Laurette is a talented artist who went to RISD.) It dresses up or down, and can be worn sleeveless or not. This is Genius, Laurette.
