Clements Ribeiro for Evans
Here at Snap we believe in dressing for your body shape and feeling confident and comfortable in clothes. Of course we’ve had plenty of amazing designer and high street collaborations of late but this one is super exciting – Clements Ribeiro for Evans.
For those not in the know, Evans caters for curvy women but is amazing for its punchy prints and bright colours – a far cry from 1990s stylists’ suggestions that larger ladies must only wear baggy black dresses – the cheek! So the collection with Clements Ribeiro is perfection, with plenty of pretty prints and flirty shapes, which are handily organised by body shape (AT LAST!)
It’s great to see Evans embracing all the trends- sheer, pattern clashing and daring accessories. Apparently the collection is really well made with sharp and structured tailoring as well as playful touches such as cute heart prints.
Ribeiro told The Telegraph: “For our first range we addressed the different body shapes, with styles which are accessible but modern, with an emphasis on prints and femininity. It was our starting point, understanding different proportions and different needs behind a desire for fashion that is not different from the high fashion consumer. Far from being apologetic or patronising, we celebrated curves and voluptuousness.”
We really like the high fashion photography and it seems so is singing superstar Adele, who wore a frock for a concert in Canada and is rumoured to have snapped up the lot.
The collection lands on 31 March in sizes 14-32 and prices start at £25, although most dresses are priced closer to £100. Go forth and shop!
