Whistles SS12: My picks...

Okay, okay maybe it's a teeny tiny bit biased to say this- but I am in love with the Whistles SS12 collection. After falling head over heels with their first ever resort collection late last year, my feet and fingers were tapping eagerly awaiting what surprises the new year would bring- it did not disappoint.

After spying the full look book on Marie Claire (and therefore telling everyone I knew) I almost instantaneously made a full wish list, knowing exactly what I would purchase when it came in (obsessed, perhaps?). Anyway, the collection exhibits all aspects of the trends soon to be appearing this spring/summer; prints (florals? spring? really?), feminine cuts and textures (lace, soft leathers, sheer chiffons and delicate tailoring), clashing colours (mixes or sorbet tints and fluro bights) and even a sprinkle of sports luxe for good measure. Equally, many of the pieces are transitional- and I for one cannot wait to get my mitts on that absolute knock out of a maxi dress, the first spring dress I can promise I will be wearing all year round!

  7. Oh hello, another excellent job done by the brand! I love the pyjama style look and laser cut leather skirt. I'll probably have to wait until the sales yet again until I can afford it, but I'm sure it'll be worth it!
