A Candy floss Spring/Summer

There’s nothing like a touch of the flu & bleak days of wind & rain like today to send the imagination off to brighter, prettier times. Last week I attended the River Island Spring/Summer 17 preview & I can tell you there was nothing dull nor dark about it. Imagine stepping into a candy coated haven of pastels that’s what it felt like at the Grafton Street Headquarters.

Wardrobe essentials were draped in sugary pinks, dusty golds & sprinkles of pastels. Throughout the collection there was a nod to the ever creeping trend of the eighties. With elements of gingham, khaki & leopard print thrown into the mix.

Be prepared this summer to fall in love with the decade that brought frills, shoulder pads & oversized silhouettes because there will be no avoiding the eighties. With hit shows like Netflix Stranger Things it was inevitable the style of the eighties would have its come back. And that’s not all. This spring/summer embrace the inner girl in you as pink is the new black. Fashion adores nostalgia and well who are we to complain with such delicious delights coming to store.
