Lace and Favour

Whether its chantilly, kenmare, or crocheted lace is a versatile trend that can move from the romantic to the gothic with ease. For SS12 light, fresh colours and bare legs make for a pretty daytime look, whilst a dash of red lipstick and blood red nails make for a vampy, evening update.

We love Valentino and Stella McCartney’s use of lace print, whilst Minna’s vintage inspired, bridal-esque gowns are must-have rather than Miss Haversham. Ethical clothing brand Annie Greenabelle use reclaimed and end-of-roll fabrics to create unique items, like their Daisy May antique lace print dress.
