I purchased this in the ruby and had compliments, the various colours shimmer and brighten up a dark, dismal winters day. I do however have a problem with the nap going the wrong way, it is almost impossible to layer up with a cardigan or to wear a coat, when I did wear a coat I needed assistance to remove it as the velvet just grabbed the lining, much pulling and tugging was required which I admit had us roaring with laughter. I have many Kim and co items which I love wearing.

Purchased Ruby in size small, I am 12/14 & the fit is fine, even though for me at 5'8" I would have preferred it a bit longer.
The mix of colours are beautiful & give a lovely shimmering effect when the light catches the fabric. The fabric is soft & silky to the touch & even though I can see what other reviewers mean re the nap of the velvet I personally do not find this a problem.
This top is so versatile as it can be worn with many things in my wardrobe just by choosing any one of the colours to mix or match with.

It has taken me three goes to buy this top. I can see why it is so popular . More than just Ruby, burgundy, gold and silver. There is a lovely lustre, the colours seem to change as the light moves. An outfit for Christmas yes, but can be worn throughout the year as the colour is not obviously Christmas .

I'm wearing this beautiful top today and feeling the bee's knees. It's the ruby version and it looks and feels amazing - the nap going the "wrong" way achieves a wonderful effect so that the light catches the colours and they flash and glisten, I love the feel of it too and keep rubbing my hands over it in different directions :)
The small fits beautifully, fitting neatly over my bust and then falling away in a very flattering manner. It's a bit shorter than I would normally want for a tunic (though it doesn't claim to be a tunic anyway), but I've solved that by wearing a long vest with a deep lace trim in black. It looks spot on!

Rated 3 out of 5 by CANCAN Looks beautiful, can't bear the feel.
I ordered the Mallard and the Ruby on waitlist and was excited when the Mallard arrived. I love the print and the colours. When the light hits the fabric, it looks spectacular. Fits well, love the soft neckline and three-quarter length sleeves. But - and for me it is a huge but - I cannot get on with the nap of the velvet going the wrong way.This is a personal preference as I think part of the pleasure of velvet fabric is stroking it and (as another reviewer has stated) this is like stroking a cat the wrong way. Apart from this, I thought the tunic was lovely and so it was with regret that I returned it and cancelled the order for the Ruby.

I loved this top as soon as I opened the packaging. Originally got the red version as teal was on wait list. Now have both colours. Excellent fit, vivid colours and good texture to the garment. I bought XL and would normally be 16/18 . I don't like anything tight or clingy and this is just right. Good body and arm length for taller ladies.

Rated 1 out of 5 by reymax Lovely material and design. Wrong shape
I love the colour and pattern but find this too shapeless. I prefer a non fitted garment to be mid hip length. It just made my largish size look bigger. Had to return . Please do the same just a bit shorter!
