“Blink” Retail: Fashion Prozac, part 2

The other collection that has caught my eye from all of the great Resort and early Spring drops, is the fabulously fluorescent Christopher Kane collection. Loving his work with J Brand too. This is another collection that fills me with joy, just like the Stella looks we shared with you a little earlier. I think it’s to do with the energy packed in to the pattern and colour combinations. The shapes are graphically simple, allowing the focal point to the be the surface detail, be that the eye popping solid shades or the wonderful rainbow hued print and pattern. The high sheen silver additions add a whole new level of excitement too.

“Blink” Retail: Fashion Prozac, part 1

There are two collections out there right now that, for me, are just like rays of fashion sunshine. Let me share them with you one by one, just to stretch the uplifting effects out a bit.

Firstly lets look at Stella‘s amazing resort collection. I do also love what’s to come when the Spring proper collection drops in fully, but until that point my fantasy shopping list is stuffed with these influential and inspirational looks. Loving the reflected style of the print. Adoring the colour and pattern combinations. I want to actually disappear into that palm fringed scene, but in lieu of that, slipping one of these looks on would do very nicely.

“Blink” Retail: YS what the L

Here’s another window shot for you from our outing down Sloane Street earlier this week. As we tweeted, many of the high end stores seem to have skipped past Christmas completely and headed straight into Spring by showcasing their resort collections. YSL seem to have partly gone that route, with a window that combines something more Winter appropriate with something super Springy.

To us this looked like a scene from a Bond movie, with one fashionable character karate chopping the other… “Take that, Bikini girl!” Or maybe she’s trying to knock some sense into her, as she’s clearly lost her mind, wearing a beach appropriate look in December in London.
