A Touch of Whimsy
Playing with patterns and colours is a field mastered by just a few brands and Etro is definitely one of them. The new collection features dreamy summer dresses, perfect for the hot humid days and nights. Small flower motifs in a patchwork pattern transport the imagination to faraway lands and tales of princesses and dragons.
Coupling the metallic trend with classic design, Esprit’s latest line is available at A La Mode stores around town. Rose gold tones are here to stay and this timeless wristwatch is a great pick to add that extra sparkle to your workwear or casual clobber. The watch also comes in silver and gold tones for those seeking a more traditional option.
Nature’s most beautiful creation is an obvious inspiration for the spring and summer collections. Coach takes the concept to the extreme with 3D flowers all over its latest handbag. This unique item would look great with a white dress and orange heels at a yacht party or poolside bash.
A patterned top in vibrant colours is one of those versatile pieces to have in your wardrobe that will add an edgy twist to plain black pants. This Manish Arora piece is a simple design with a unique stamp. It is available at Saks Fifth Avenue amongst other creations from this Indian designer who has conquered the fashion world with his colourful mix of ethnic and modern sketches.
Jimmy Choo is a synonym of contemporary luxury and after The Sex and the City television series the brand became more popular than ever. This season’s metallic sandals are to die for. Coming in vibrant shades of yellow and blue or even in striking silver, they are the best match for your evening gown or an eye-catching element to add to stylish daywear.
For those like me, who lived their golden teenage days in the nineties, seeing some of the decade’s most popular trends coming back to life is a delight. Grunge style, slip-ons and a sporty relaxed vibe with T-shirts and worn-out jean-jackets are just a few of the options making an appearance for the coming season. Saint Laurent took inspiration from the ‘90s to develop its SS2016 collection.
