From long carefree days in the countryside to sunsets overlooking the sea, Summer is the time of year to enjoy life outdoors.

Alfresco entertainment in Italy means indulging in spontaneous moments which are relaxed, effortless and epitomize the culture of living well and fashionably.

Whether hosting or attending a summer get-together with family and friends, the Câllas collection has enticing options to make slipping into a summery look both stylish and easy.

The Tilda dress, in a mosaic of greens, black and white of the Foliage print, is the style to consider when a beautifully crafted dress is desired.

The shirt dress detailing provides a crisp silhouette, while the long tiered and softly gathered skirt imparts a relaxed Bohemian spirit. The dress is made from a breezy silk scarf twill to stay cool during hot days. The long sleeves are ideal for when the evening arrives with its lower temperatures.

A pair of sandals and a bit of sun kissed color on the legs is all you need to finish off a summer look to perfection.

The Monica Tunic dress in cotton poplin is seaside ready for maritime vacations. Its relaxed fit works easily as a polished swimwear coverup; accessorized with a sun hat and a flash of jewelry, the Monica dress is a perfect choice for beachside and on deck occasions.

The silk twill back panel in the graphic Foliage print elevates the dress to a memorable look for all your summer moments.

The Gia blouse is another warm weather favorite at Câllas. The neat boat-neckline (terrific for showcasing the warmth of the sun which has settled across your collarbone) is a counterpoint to the generous blouson shape. Cropped sleeves and an elasticize hem adds to the relaxed appeal of the Gia.

Worn tucked into shorts or alone over a bikini bottom or with a sarong casually tied at the hips, the Gia is a statement piece which is all about summer style without constraint.
