There were so many pretty dresses in this collection, except they weren't just pretty dresses as they came with a punch of attitude. For example there's the sugary pink dress with a huge black ant on it, requiring a certain attitude to pull off. Cheerful brights and gorgeous ditsy floral patterns were juxtaposed with morbid skulls and vampire fangs. Of course vampires are having quite a cultural moment right now. Whether it's Twilight, True Blood or The Vampire Diaries more and more books with bite appear on every visit to the book store- even Mr Darcy's been rewritten vamp style- so the label's got its finger on the pulse. I also love the little styling touches with (what appear to be) scarves as bracelets and even tied in a way reminiscent of bunny ears.
This label is designed with a refreshingly large range of sizes in mind. The garments have a relaxed boho vibe with splashes of bold colour and gorgeous patterns to brighten up the season. There were some really lovely dresses I'd love to float round summer in. They're versatile looks which could be accessorised to work from day to night too.
This collection showcased understated, elegant chic. The dresses were smart but not too fussy or structured- the kind of evening dress which you can relax in whilst being assured you look good.
The collection that showed contained simply the cutest swimwear I have ever seen! Even I would struggle to mix florals when contained to just one swimwear look but they've done it for me! I really love the sweet but grown up mix of nautical strips and pretty floral prints which are two of my all time favourite trends.
The dresses on the runway were really cute: adorable but with a little unusual quirk to them. Ideal, perhaps, for a smart, but not too dressy summer garden party. I would really love the one with the little blue blazer- perfect for a city day.
Now I'm feeling even more impatient for spring and summer to come round!
