Let’s face it, British summer is completely unpredictable, so you need to invest in versatile pieces that will keep you warm and cool at the same time. This is why alpaca or pima cotton are such great choices. Alpaca for example is adaptable, breathable and waterproof: simply perfect for any weather.
We love this AlpacaGuapa best-selling poncho in mint green.
You can wear it as a casual piece to travel in or dress it up with smart trousers and high heels to wear out.
It’s the perfect top because of its relaxed elegance and comfort and besides, it’s right on-trend with this summer’s festival fashion. Check out the latest celebs — from Paloma Faith and Rihanna to Poppy Delevigne — wearing ponchos and skinny jeans with their wellies ready to hit Glastonbury and other festival fields! Grab one before it’s too late!
The AlpacaGuapa Green prima cotton poncho is priced at £55. (link: http://alpacaguapa.co.uk/shop/women/pima-cotton-poncho/)
Art at its finest
For an art piece with a difference, head to one of our events and check out our new stunning collection of Wall Hangings. Woven by hand in Peru by local artists from Ayacucho, using a mix of alpaca, cotton and wool, these one-off pieces are completely unique. Each one takes over a month to create and the dyes used to make them (giving them those striking tones) are 80% natural — derived from local Peruvian flowers. They are real statement pieces that will simply stand out on your wall. A beautiful artisan ethnic touch that will lift any interior, and you can even wash them in a cold wash with no risk of shrinking or the colours running!
Prices start from £250- £800. For more information please contact Zayda@alpacaguapa.com.
