Spring/Summer 09 (FINALLY)

The snow is gone, it's already New York fashion week and we are crazily bored of black, we think it is finally time to (reluctantly) kick off the Doc.Martins and embrace Spring/Summer 2009. Ofcourse, this is easier said than done and we're going to have to find some money and some good shops (Topshop isn't looking too promising...) before we can really begin the new season. but, all this aside, here are our favourite trends of the new season,as elle was getting us nowhere with their 'no trends' talk:


Seen at chloe, giles, erdem, miu miu...shades of cream, apricot and peach created a young innocent feel. A softer revitalisation of last seasons dark romance.

AS well as these skin-tone shades we really like the pastel and candyfloss colours at Topshop Unique. Who are also displaying some of the best pieces of "distressed denim", topped with messy iconic 80's bows. Will definately be buying some of these pieces when they come into stores, alas, not quite luella but all that is in our price range.

Colour Blocking and Acid Brights.

THANK GOD. Like we said before, we could not take any more black! Luckily bright colour was all over the s/s catwalks - Alexander wang to Lanvin. Will you look at the blazer?!! We are currently coveting Wang's entire collection!

Our favourite colour blocking combinations were the clashing yet complimentary purple-orange at luella (who's whole collection we are in love with. Again.) and orange this time was teamed with fushia and powder pink seen at Richard Nicoll who's collection showed this seasons colour blocking trend at its best. Both designers also ruled on the asymetric front:from off the shoulder pieces to frill layering, must have dress compositions for the on coming season.
