Mother of Pearl AW16...

Whenever I think of my own personal style, it's rare that I'd ever use the words athletic, sports or luxe to describe it. But with brands like Mother of Pearl, the worlds of both sports and all things feminine fuse, equating to an aesthetic that solely enhances wearability- making the more formal additionally playful, and the more traditional lean towards the more modern. Having first fallen for the brand last season with their nostalgic frilled prairie infused SS offering, for AW16, I had high hopes- and couldn't have been more thrilled that I'd hopped out of bed, partially flu bound, to catch the collection on the final day of LFW.

With the vibe falling along the lines of something between A-Level school girl (meets the sports field) and the cosy comforts of home (fuelled by rich floral wallpaper decor inspired prints). The collection sights inspiration from families at home; 'nightie inspired smock shapes', belted gowns and the 'sportswear of teenagers and fathers'- equating to a wonderful collection bursting with loose feminine (yet masculine) silhouettes offset with a mixture of luxurious velvets, leathers and delicate chiffon tying things together- with none other than slipper inspired mules, and velvet tied flats to top everything off, no less. Now just to wait for it to land...
