KDK Launch Kaftan Collection – Just In Time For Your Summer Holiday

KDK’s Kiera Kennedy has grand plans to expand the scarf company she co-founded with sister Dairine. A KAFTAN COLLECTION was the natural progression

Favourite piece from your new kaftan collection? I love our Sea print kaftan: it instantly evokes a summer feeling and looks super-luxe in soft silk. Your signature beach look? I like a chilled boho look – a kaftan over a bikini, simple sandals, an oversize beach bag and a straw hat. I like to look “put together”. What’s in your beach bag? I never go anywhere without a camera (the Instax Polaroid camera – you can give friends their pictures there and then); Jan Marini Factor 70 face sunscreen; one of our super-soft modal scarves for post-pool or breezy beach or to wear as a sarong.

Sea print silk kaftan, €160. Hat, Whistles, €80, at Brown Thomas.

How do you turn your poolside look into a chic outfit for lunch? Oscar De la Renta statement earrings, Valentino flat sandals, and a few simple gold bangles. I like Dr Bronner’s Organic Lavender Hygiene Spray which removes that salty feeling from your hands. I pull up beachy hair into one of our silk scarves or use one as a hairband.
