The collection channels the boho-chic vibe of Coachella captured by the use of edgy fringes and enchanting florals that transport us right to the upbeat event. Layla has combined modern silhouettes with lace, prints and subtle embellishments for a luxurious yet free-spirited feel that marks the uniqueness and vivaciousness of the collection.
