Shao Yen, Autumn Winter 2014-15

I like to see Autumn Winter collections with some colour in them and that seems to be rife for Autumn Winter 2014-15. This collection by Shao Yen, sees the American Sports wear trend carried through for another season, with inspiration taken from space in the form of silhouettes and fabrics.

With oversized sportswear jackets, slim legged tapered trousers and mini and midi skirt with new half moon silhouette. Paired with laser cut, sheer, satin, faux fur, check & striped fabrics this collection has got something for everyone.

One of my favourite bits of this collection is the attention with has been paid to detail, the cute frill cuffs and knee detail on the trousers, the use of crystal style beading on coats and the placement on faux fur on the jackets. But my all time favourite piece has to be the metallic silver and faux fur fish shaped clutch bag!! Amazing!!

Wow! What a collection a feast for the eyes indeed, there is so much going on its is almost hard to see everything. Lets start with colours, white, pastel blue & Cobalt blue to add real flash of colour. Silhouettes are oversized to say the least! With everything from puff sleeves, embroider anglisias, dip dyes leather, dunagrees, cape coats and midi skirts and shorts this collection is a breath of fresh air for an Autumn Winter collection.

Altough the techinques and some of the fabrics used are feminine and the overall sense of the collection has a feminine girly feel to it, it has been toughened up with the use of dip dyes Leather skirts, jackets and T-shirts. A really fairytale inspired collection I think and I will enjoy looking at it as much as wearing too.
