Lanvin S/S 2104
Spring Summer 2014 is about to sparkle and glisten from start to finish thanks to Lanvin use of metallic tulles, lame, silk, tweeds and a corrugated fabric which helped achieve the look don’t touch attitude. 

Lanvin S/S 2104
The palette colour for this summer in Lanvins’ world is pale green, peach, gold, bronze raspberry and maroon, sometimes softly embellished with crystals too.

 With an 80’s 90’s blend of eras in the use of jumpsuits, halter-neck and unfinished raw hems, Lanvin showed us how we can do the two trend in sheer luxury.

Designer Collaboration

As we are all aware that some of the major names on the UK high street are collaborating with designers, to offer us “affordable” versions of their collections. H&M started the trend collaborating with designers in 2004 such as Karl Lagerfield, Stella McCartney, Victor & Rolf, Versace and most recently Marni.

Topshop released there collaboration with Mary Katrantzou to coincide with London Fashion Week, where they showcased funky printed and structured dresses, tops, shirt, trousers and accessory’s. We, like most people, have to shop on a budget so we get excited about designers, we can’t afford, collaborating with high street chains where we shop, but we expect reasonable prices, £350 for a polyester dress in not affordable.

For us designer high street collaborations are starting to loose their appeal. We are looking for quality made, great designed clothing with attention to material, construction and overall detail. When we compare clothes today to vintage pieces, which have already survived years of wear and tear, there really isn’t any comparison to the quality of construction. Buying vintage is not only green but your also getting the best quality and value for money clothing available to us at this moment in time. I am keeping my eye out for the made in UK tags, that sadly, we no longer see in most of our high street garments. A great place to find vintage, with out having to rummage, is ASOS Market Place where there is a wide selection of Menswear and Womenswear. 
Happy Shopping!
