Dorothy Perkins SS14
Yes! More Spring goodness! When I got this lookbook in my mailbox, I was beyond excited! Although Dorothy Perkins
caters to all women sizes 4-22 (UK), it is not considered a plus size brand, and I know some of you would like to see them
extend their size range. Nevertheless, I like the example they are setting by making one range and extending it to plus sizes
instead of making a separate plus size line. Because I think that's "our" main goal here, having size diversity and stores that
Anyhoo, I absolutely love their new SS14 collection, and like I mentioned before, this season we will see a lot of candy colored
pastels, black and white and a sporty trend. All of these elements have been incorporated in the new collection, this is
what Dorothy Perkins had to say about it:
"This Spring/Summer Dorothy Perkins embraces two key looks: Pretty and feminine pastels and geometric graphics with a sports luxe feel.
The pastel trend signals the return of femininity, combining sheer and lace textures with delicate organza details. Separates
are key for Spring Summer – whether it’s a midi skirt teamed with a dip-hem top or wide leg palazzo pants with a translucent
blouse. Jacquard and lace pencil skirts are worn with a slub fit logo tee and a biker jacket. The midi length is a must have -
whether in a sheer panel detail dress or printed skirts.
The graphic trend combines minimalism and geometric prints for a relaxed easy to wear collection. Laser cut, asymmetric finishing
and colour blocking are mixed with sheer panelling and midi length styles. The monochrome colour palette receives an injection
of colour and the inclusion of delicate floral prints. The tailored high waisted shorts and dip-hem top make the ideal sports-luxe
look along with the sheer sleeve bomber jacket and a structured neon mini cross body bag."
Well, what do you think? I definitely need that silver metallic skirt, floral biker jacket and long mint blazer! Tell me your faves!
