Coming back to London Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week we would like to make a quick review of what to wear this Spring and later in the Summer as the snow must have melted for good now! Even though there was none this Winter in Great Britain, we are pretty sure all of us felt as freezing as it was an ice age in here anyway! Ok now, we think it is this time of a year finally when you can leave your house in the morning, wearing something light without any hypothermic side effects. Coming to the point – short descriptions and photos. May all of these inspire you to find similar pre-loved pieces at our Asos Marketplace Boutique under the name of Harper & Lewis Vintage. Yes we know, long time no see…Hence, feeling even more excited as always we would like to wish you Happy Shopping! xx

How to Wear: Just Rock’n’Roll it ..

Future Florals House of Holland

Floral prints, 3D blooms and pretty applique botanicals brought lawn borders to the catwalk this season. While some designers went classic with bold prints, others riffed on the theme. Mary Katrantzou’s jewel encrusted 3D posies and Christopher Kane’s phytotomy were a case in point.

How to wear: Team your neon florals and botanical blooms with edgy attitude and offbeat accessories, like metallic glam rock accessories, sky high sandals or chilled-out trainers. The two tribes within this trend are polar extremes – it’s either the lady-like treatment or sassy urbanite styling.

How to wear: Fashion’s fickle eye hasn’t quite moved on from pink. There’s still plenty of style mileage left in the hue that makes boys wink. Best worn as one hero-piece, such as a coat or jacket, or be shameless and wear pink head-to-toe. You go, girls!

Pleats Please Celine

As seen at: Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, Gucci

Schoolgirl pleats were given a luxe upgrade at LFW with foiled finishes, ombre’d effects and premium fabrics making the look completely grown up.

How to wear: Go for tight pleats on dresses, skirts and accessories. The broader pleat is a thing of the past… Well, for now.

Matchy (Mis-)Matchy: Alexander McQueen

Shredded Denim

Frayed denim offered a hip update on jeans for Spring. Dresses, tops and skirts looked nonchalent and brought a hint of the street to the runways. The look also offered London’s cool girls a new season wardrobe for Spring.

Pastels

Pretty pastels were pumped up this season with a striking palette of germolene, spearmint and Parma-violet. Head to toe and tonal combinations are the only way to go.

 The Mullet Dress

All party at the front and business at the back, the lop-sided mullet dress has long been a favourite with Hollywood starlets looking to create drama on the red carpet. Antonio Berardi’s mis-matched skirt hems paired with sweaters show that the style is not just for blow out nights – it can also work for a modern take on cocktail dressing.

Hope you feel inspired to get some wicked vintage pieces of Harper & Lewis now – Spring is just by the cornet – GET READY

Happy Shopping, xx
