The Flamenco collection was inspired by the style of music and dance which is native to several regions of Southern Spain. Let loose your inner gypsy spirit with this season's bold colours, waist cinching shapes and layers of pretty lace ruffles. Dance away those Winter blues and warm your heart and soul from the inside out!
