Gabriela Hearst’s Spring /Summer 2018 collection

 

Daring Red

Beulah London’s red floral maxi dress adds a generous pop of colour this spring and ticks not only one but three positive fashion trends for 2018 – bold colours, florals, and ruffles.  

Thanks to clever draping and a shape that draws down into a floor-grazing skirt, Givenchy’s Cady dress is super flattering and ensures that all eyes are on you.

Vintage Silhouettes

That feminine fifties-style silhouette is a timeless classic.

The ‘Calypso’ Skirt in ‘Blue Gingham from Lilliput & Felix teamed with the Galypso Wrap Bikini Top in ‘Blue Gingham’ is a perfect nod to the gingham we’ve seen in SS18 catwalk looks.

Disco Glamour

Step aside, Cinderella. A sparkly pair of shoes is a must have for any wardrobe, and Camilla Elphick‘s Crystal Amaze Heels are perfect – her signature, leg-lengthening curved silhouette is super flattering. Camilla’s Venus Stilettos feature an interpretation of Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’, carefully reworked and embellished with Swarovski Crystal detailing.

Navy is a chic alternative to black. Geoffrey Swarovski crystal-embellished velvet camisole from Gabriela Hearst evokes memories of an inky night sky – its crystal detailing is subtle without being over-dressed.

Architectural Accents

The minimalist aesthetic shows no signs of fading; JEM Jewellery’s Voids Ring in ethical yellow gold takes its inspiration from the world of architecture which ‘reveals a hidden nudity and encircles the skin, a pattern filling the absence’. The result? A flattering and luminous ring that can be dressed up or down.
