Rumour has it that this might be our smoothest curation yet…

Monochrome Monday: The Butter Yellow Edition

As temperatures rise and darker hues find themselves tucked away in the backs of our closets, a certain light staple colour has stolen the spotlight as the hottest hue of the summer: butter yellow. An instant mood booster, yellow is synonymous with sunshine, beachside escapades, and overall good vibes.

In honour of the hue of the hour, we’ve curated what we’ll coin as our smoothest collection yet. From Amina Muaddi’s glittering pumps to Harithand’s silky-smooth gowns, this week’s edition is all about that deliciously sweet butter yellow.

Yassmin Saleh

The Conviviality Collection

Silky and smooth - like a certain Monochrome Monday namesake - Lebanese eponymous label Yassmin Saleh’s draped top and mermaid skirt from the conviviality collection truly evoke liveliness.

Begüm Kham

The Prawn Earrings

Is it too on the nose to make a shrimp and butter joke? Oh well. Turkish jewellery label Begüm Khan’s collections draw inspiration from the unlikeliest of places, and we love it.

Maison Saedi

The Serrée Collection

Haute couture at its finest, Egypt’s Maison Saedi truly delivered a fantasy with the Serrée collection, and this piece is simply the (butter) icing on top.

Sara Mrad

The Calista Dress

Somewhere in a Dutch penthouse, Iris Van Herpen is shaking in her boots right now. Crafted from draped vanilla silk taffeta, Sara Mrad’s Calista ethereally flows with the wind.

Jude Benhalim

The Frost Set

Like molten butter adorning the neck, Jude Benhalim’s Frost Set is the statement piece of the summer.


The Ophelia in Pastel Yellow

Evoking 1970s high glamour, Harithand’s Ophelia is truly effortlessly timeless, as one has come to expect from the Lebanese label.

Amina Muaddi

The Charlotte Crystal Pump

Uhm, your eyes should be down there. Truly shining through, Amina Muaddi’s Charlotte Crystal Pumps are the perfect pair to strut in this summer.

Nadia Chellaoui

The AnnAh XXL Bag

A literal piece of handheld hard, Nadia Chellaoui’s creations are an extension of her artistic identity, and the AnnAh XXL Bag is no exception.


The Leya Bikini

Now it wouldn’t be a proper Monochrome Monday summer curation without a stunning (and glittering) swimsuit, and Theá’s Leya Bikini checks all the buttery boxes.
