Pretty In Pink

As style icon Audrey Hepburn once said: ‘I believe in pink…’

From the lightest loveliest pastel to delicious vivid shades of candy – pink always packs the perfect punch.

This coming Spring / Summer season, many Designers have embraced this charming tone – perfect for a sweet Summer romance. Not too girly and not too precious – pink is bold, optimistic and arrestingly alluringly.

From Yves Saint Laurent to Ralph Lauren, Chanel to Prada – pink enlivens the senses and evokes a nostalgic sweetness. My favourite though, the bold, bright shade of candy at Valentino – delectable enough to eat!

On the runway, pink was worn with black to add a toughened edge to this adorable tone. Or why not be daring and simply wear pink from head to toe…

Quote Of The Day:
Christian Louboutin:

The shoe designer behind those iconic red soles has said: ”I really have not so much sympathy. If Tina Turner and Prince’s back-up band can perform on stage in them for three hours, you can’t tell me they are impossible to walk in. High heels are pleasure with pain. If you can’t walk in them, don’t wear them.”

Sarah Burton Named on Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People list

Friday Sugar Fix

From sherbet lemon to mint sorbet, pink musk sticks to lavender loveliness – this sweeter than sweet trend is deliciously decedent and positively delicious.

Delicate, feminine and a little bit whimsical, this sugary trend takes an opulently soft approach to Spring / Summer dressing.

Breathe some fresh air into your wardrobe after the dark colours of Winter with delicate pastels and darling embellishment. From the runways of Louis Vuitton to Chanel, Jonathan Saunders, Alexander McQueen and more, fairytale pastels were seductively sweet.

Trimmings and fabrics also took a saccharine note with big lacy collars and oversized white buttons. While divine broderie anglaise dresses, feathers and pearls were equally enchanting. Accessories were kept lady-like and elegant. Pointed kitten heels and structured retro-inspired handbags are positively precious in pastel.

Will your wardrobe experience a sugar high for Spring? xx
