Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Warehouse SS14 press day. For me this was the group which instantly drew me in with colours bursting from every inch of the rail! Photographic prints merged with saturated fluro separates on bell skirts, pleated shorts, crop crepe jackets and peg coloured trousers.
Think hippy luxe, this collection focused on sunset evenings bringing laid back dressing with a luxe twist to the forefront, with scarf printed maxis, playsuits and a Coachella inspired print midi dress.
One of my favourite pieces was this white on white suit with added texture thrown into the mix.
For the pastel lovers Warehouse has all you will ever need from blush sorbets to ice blues to soft mints and dreamy creams. These new saturated pastels were merged with chiffon, lace and sheer organza. Feeling very 50's with lace coats and cute crop jackets worn over hand drawn pretty garden florals.
This season Warehouse has really captured the summer feeling with styles for weddings, festivals, to work attire. Add to this the amazing collaboration with Philli Wood, the winner of new talent for fashion design. Philli, a graduate at the University of Westminster joins Warehouse for a six month placement where she will follow the design to production of her debut collection. Giving the illusion of knitwear, Philli printed images of cable knits onto exaggerated shapes which clearly the BFC Colleges Council were impressed with. Taking her collection from catwalk to ready-to-wear she stayed true to her original designs keeping key features such as welt pockets, drawstrings and orange linings.
I for one cannot wait for this to hit stores in February, with her creatively diverse and yet wearable collection, this talented lady will sure be one to watch!
If like me you need some warmth until the summer months arrive, the current Warehouse collection has many coats on offer to keep you warm and toasty this winter!
