Earlier this week, we had the privilege of attending the Harvey Nichols Spring/Summer fashion show. So, as you do, we chanel-led our inner fashionistas, pretended our Primark was Prada and drank the free-flowing Perriet Jouet until we felt like we could afford everything in the store. A dangerous combination but thankfully one which didn’t come to fruition.
After a welcome (and a quick catch up with some lovely fellow bloggers!) at their Bristol store, the show itself was held at Cutlers Hall (which for Bristolian’s is above Brasserie Blanc) in a room festooned with flowers and great long benches lining the path for the runway. The models sashayed their way down one side of the room and then back up the other, giving everyone ample opportunity to see the pieces. As you would expect from a high end store like Harvey Nichols, the presentation was beautiful and we did a lot of pointing and cooing. We were also very impressed to see Jade from Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model on the runway because that, my friend, is our level right there. It must be said that the models were all fabulous and injected a nice bit of personality into proceedings.
There were a number of standout pieces but we were both big fans of the Anatomical Print skirt by Chistopher Kane skirt! Novelty print heaven! We also fell in love with all of the great digital print dresses by Mary Kartanzou. Aren’t they amazing?
For those of us who can’t afford to splurge on designer gear, the show was also a great source of inspiration on how to tap into the key SS14 trends. We were particularly enamored with their use of neon accessories to really make the outfits pop.
