Designer Highlight - Kelly Love SS12

Photobucket

SPRING/SUMMER 2012 sees KELLY LOVE travel back to the days of childhood bliss. Whimsical games by the light of the fireflies, bunches of posies picked fresh from the garden and fairytales read over and over.

Inspired by outdoor games from a child's imagination, nursery rhymes and picnics in the meadow along with the contrast of old fashioned feminity, vintage lingerie and 1930's cocktail parties.

Grown up fantasy exists in layered dresses with exclusive prints, crochet collars, pleated jersey in dusty rose, French antique lace and olive jacquard spotted silk.

Edgy dreaminess is the essence of POCKET FULL O' POSIES

When the lookbook from Kelly Love landed in my inbox, I was quite simply blown away. Pocket Full O' Posies has me aching for spring, (which believe me, is no mean feat as I am strictly an Autumn/Winter gal). The feminine florals, sumptuous silks and delicate lace is all that I should wish to wear this coming springtime. Never before have I seen such a cohesive collection which so imaginatively captures it's inspiration. The styling, photography and choice of model are perfection. I would wear absolutely any one of these pieces in a heart-beat... although my personal favourite has to be the long Posies in My Pocket dress. This is one designer from whom I am very much looking forward to seeing upcoming collections.
