Everybody has green fingers ! The Issa collection focused on the Garden of Eden at the recent London Fashion Week. The collection's palette comprised of bright colours and bold natural prints. There was a real tropical vibe with many colourful flower designs and exotic fruity visuals. Most of the cuts were of the classic, flattering kind.
Every outfit was so vivid, especially the weave dresses. FashionThirst's favourite was the long, white dress with flamingo coloured, large floral print, perfect for a stroll on South or West Palm Beach.
Many of the chiffon and satin pieces were teamed up with a flower accessory for the hair and bold, large costume jewellery creating a real Caribbean or Central American flavour. The halter neck dresses rendered elegance in its purest form. Most of the neon coloured jacquards had floral designs too, think Panama or Barbados, think Costa Rica or Tobago! Take these outfits on your vacations to beat the winter blues.
Some of the St Martin’s Alumni literally jumped up and down when the ladies came out in their printed pyjama suits, it was obvious that they couldn't contain their excitement. The fabulous asymmetric draping and fold details just slightly underneath the waist bands really brought out the feminine attributes. The bright orange dress displayed real couture tailoring with sleek gatherings around the torso.
This collection was irresistible and flamboyant, the colour palette was vivacious and fun and the cuts ecclectic but classic. I think it's time to book a flight don't you?
