Bold colours and unbridled patterns have made their way from Brisbane-born artist Kristian Williams’ canvas onto a kaftan collection by Australian label Bonita. The hand-drawn illustrations and hand-sequined patterns add a luxurious twist to the easy, breezy garments, which are available at Sauce stores in the UAE and online.

The collection features a number of cultural references, including a reinterpretation of the evil eye and a portrait of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Vivacious florals, tropical fruits and abstract hearts make an appearance, too.

The kaftans are priced from Dh1,500.
