Sorbet Shades

Play up pastels for spring...
5th February 2014

The resort COLLECTION was awash in candy colours – sunny sorbet shades that hail the arrival of spring. In fact, the resounding rainbow from all the fashion capitals was pastel in tone but their interpretation anything but saccharine.

Look to the studio’s prints for styling inspiration: the Cactus Garden sets mint and blush as a neutral base for a sharp lemon yellow or coral red flower – do the same by pairing the tee with the framboise trousers or a coral clutch. Or when wearing the print itself, rest assured the spiky cactus leaves have a far more modern, sinister tone than pretty posies.

Whether through distorted florals or bold new silhouettes, find an edge and the pretty palette will last you through summer. Just remember – this candy girl isn’t as sweet as she looks.The End
