As the warmer weather approaches, it is no surprise that the fashion scene see’s a lot more colour in upcoming collections. Take some mega splashes of colour, a little reminiscence of your childhood and a few killer accessories, and you have Essentiel’s newest spring/summer collection. Fun and fearless, the label has released garments with prints, texts and sparkle, with an attitude that says “mixing is the new matching.” Though staying true to the Essentiel branding that there is always a mixture of styles to play with throughout their collection.
The SS17 collection is giving vibes of a Japanese geisha, with kimono styled cropped dresses, silk and those signature floral patterns. If you don’t feel like Japanese, maybe a trip down memory lane might entice your tastes, with some of our favourite muppet characters making an appearance on sweaters and bags.. Although, they’ve been matured. Take the sweater of Kermit the frog, for instance, which has the text printed “Frog You” on it… as mentioned before, this collection is definitely fun and fearless!
As for the colour palette, well there is definitely no limit in this collection. If you like pink, there is at least five different shades, as well as blues, yellows, greens and of course, a selection of whites and blacks. To give the palette further depth, there are metallic colours and a few garments completely covered in silver and sparkle for that ultimate “space couture” look. With the combination of so many colours and textures, just looking at the garments should give you a boost of energy.
Combining fabrics, colours and playfulness is not where the SS17 collection ends, oh no, as you’re not done until the accessories are on. Essentiel has gone above and beyond with the big, bold necklackes, rhinestoned broaches, and the huge selection of coloured, printed bags. The polka dot glitter Miss Piggy bag is definitely a must, and if you’re feeling like some more muppets there are a variety of key chains too. A quick tip though: a purchase from Essentiel’s SS17 collection is not complete without a pair of the metallic leather loafers available in pink, green and gold.
So, hop, skip and jump to the collection and feed your inner child!
