I love mornings like this: magical snow-frosted winter wonderland outside, a cup of green tea and a piece of very dark chocolate as a treat and an array of gorgeous designs by Michael Angel.
The only problem I have with this collection is my total inability to select just a few looks because, frankly, I love every single one of them. Not too long ago a total virgin when it comes to prints, I am now falling in love with watercoloured graphics – some resembling oversized splinters of a dream or blurred sound waves and others looking like rainbow lights trapped inside precious cabochons. I adore the chunky knits (which would be very easy and quick to recreate at home with some Rowan merino wool), dresses, sharp jackets, impeccably tailored coats that are kind of sporty, but not to the point of being too “fitnessy”, shoes, a feminine hairband that adds softness and playfulness to every look… And lets not forget a gorgeous palette of cool greys, deep rich plums, frozen blues and soft greens not only because these are my favourite colours, but also because they look incredible here.
That’s a wonderful thing about fashion – it’s all about being inspired by and falling in love with the new while letting your heart beat a bit faster while anxiously waiting for the old favourites to show up.
