This insanely stunning piece by Carl Kapp is muted class, with adjustable wrap making for endless shapes and fluid movement. Photos by Zanita

Dion Lee manages structure yet flow perfectly every single time with this silk top with harness cut out back, available from Desordre boutique in Paddington. Photos by Nicole Cooper
