I have had the most amazing couple of weeks as I have been so lucky to see the new SS13 collections from some of my favourite brands. I was so excited when I went to French Connection and I wanted to show you a few highlights.
The collections for French Connection are all about light, feminine and chic and for me the use of colours took my breath away, beautiful blacks, greys, navy and whites with the most pretty candy and pastel colurs which will bring any Spring/Summer outfit alive. You will see soft yellows and wonderful cornflour blues mixed with wonderfully crisp whites.
The most exciting for me was to see great prints and embellishment which we all love from FC.
How beautiful are these wedges, imagine white linens or a beautiful print dress to accompany them. I wish you could feel through your screen as the bag just moulded in your hands.
As you will see from this display great neutrals for the accessories with flashes of orange, creams and reds.
A mass of colour and gorgeous aztec prints made my heart race when I saw this rail. I pulled out the leg of these great trousers to show you the print in more detail, perfect teamed with a white t.shirt and bomber jacket. Keep this print simple and let it do all the talking.
The oversized bomber shows how the chic sports inspired pieces are making a statement next season. Seeing them mixed with versatile staples such as silk trousers and loose fitting sweatshirts. Hopefully underneath you can see the pretty silk floral top which just adds that feminine twist to the jacket.
I tried so hard to walk past this dress but it just kept dragging me back to gaze admiringly at it. The dresses that were on show for SS13 will have all eyes drawn to the waist and the shape of the feminine body.
This stunning colour is one that you wil see run through items within the new collections.
Lots of love
