Maybe it’s because we want the sun back so badly but we have noticed some tasty ice cream inspired clothing in Topshop. Now all we need is some good weather and a sundae (or two) and we’re all set.
I can’t wait for summer and every time I open a fashion magazine Mulberry’s amazing SS12 campaign teases me a little more that it’s still a bit of a wait. But I spotted this tasty skirt in Whistles and it reminded me of the British seaside and Mr Whippy ice cream so here is an ode to just that….oh, and here’s Tali Lennox’s seductive shoot for Eleven Paris – just because it features a stripy lollipop.
Carrying on SS12’s prominent trend of sugary pastel cuteness, pointy kitten heels, pretty lace and candy colours all featured heavily, as well as bright pink knits with crochet collars, bold buttons teamed with sixties style cigarette trous.
And the best bit? The amazing prints featuring lips, make-up and bows. Just soooo cute. Our biggest criticism: fur, which apparently is real. Eew. Just say no.
Henry Holland also stuck with bright pastels but the shot of primary red (dubbed Crayola red by some) which featured surprisingly heavily in the House of Holland collection, stopped it being too saccharine.
I loved the bright zig-zags in the silk dresses but the 1970s flared leggings with blazers left me cold. The punchy Hounds tooth was very Holland but it was all a little too disco for me. I prefer Holland in his statement tshirt era.

Everyone wants a fashionable piece of Elizabeth Olsen at the moment and it’s not difficult to see why. Apart from being stunning looking, Elizabeth is quite an actress and is expected to make a HUGE name for herself this year – oh and you might have heard of her super stylish sisters.
Elizabeth was the face of ASOS’ magazine this month and stars in a bright editorial with kooky sequinned tops and pom-pom embellished shorts. Interestingly in the interview she also claims she hasn’t borrowed clothes from Mary-Kate and Ashley’s wardrobe since she was 14…is she mad?!
Being a busy girl, Elizabeth also graces Glamour UK’s fashion pages this month, this time decked out in pretty pastels by Chanel, Dior, Carven and Nina Ricci. It’s worth buying this issue if you haven’t as there are so many Spring fashion ideas.
Model Lindsey Wixson is the latest model to take a tumble on this year’s catwalks – and who can blame her in those skyscraper perspex shoes?
The Inspiration: Under the sea; particularly starfish and Versace (studded) heritage.
The Look: Lots of body con and studs for the classically sexy Versace silhouette. Pale pastels, white, metallics, studs and that lemon yellow – which has been seen everywhere!
Best Bit: We actually loved Lindsey’s dress (and the fact she smiled after her probably painful mishap) Oh and that lemon dress with lazer cut detail, as seen at Giles Deacon.
Notes: FYI there were 2 walking problems at LFW – one model tripped over her gown at Amanda Wakeley’s show and another got her stiletto caught in a fishnet knit dress at Mark Fast.
P.S. anyone else getting excuted about Versace for H&M now?
