SS12 Style Notes
Retro Style Maxi P3400/ New Lurex Floppy P1500
A quirky retro collection of bold statement accessories, COQUETTE is full of fun and flirtation. Colour blocking, stripes and novelty monogram prints are seen across a girly collection of scarves, bags and jewellery, all with a sense of whimsical charm in mind.
Polka dots and stars pop across fabric bags along with flamingo motifs and LA palm prints. The flirtiness continues with Perspex jewellery in the shape of kitsch bows and playful galloping horses. Vintage inspired floppy hats and summer trilbies are must-have Coquette girl staples, accompanied by old-school shades.
Taylor Sparkle Bracelet P680/ Nautical Chain & Satin Rope P1200
Inspired by the sun scorched northwest American deserts, ARIZONA presents a style evolution from summer’s PHOENIX collection.
Global traveller style takes form with tan bucket satchels and retro canvas camera bags, whilst jewellery centres on a clean gold palate, with engraved torque necklaces and trend conscious coin pendants. Tribal influences are also key – think traditional Aztec and Navajo beading on cuffs and string necklaces.
The ARIZONA girl takes sunset silk scarves incorporating snake and animal prints and wears them as headwear or simply tied to her woven slouch bag. Warmed with relaxed vintage style, the collection is full of ease and the essence of summer cool.
Contrast Square Bag P2300/ Swing Pearl Earrings P530
In a candy box of sherbet pastels, parma violets and fruity sorbets, the BONBON collection easily lives up to its sugary girl-friendly name.
Dusted in retro chic and channelling the 1960s, BONBON presents girly vintage glamour with a drop of Japanese modernity sprinkled on top. Printed silk scarves, inspired by kimono designs are complemented by a desirable offering of elegant boxy clutches – perfect for a dash of retro glamour.
Decadent jewellery is a must-have inclusion to this range with opaque pastel stones, pearls and subtle sparkle marking the key combinations.
Pansy Cotton Bandeau Dress P1650/ Peacock Feather Earrings P750
Ethnic influences meet slick city styling in the TIKI collection. Tribal jewel brights hook up with bird of paradise prints, bi-colour Japanese patterns and exotic reptile textures for an urban jungle look.
A pot of core silver jewellery and contrasting coloured gemstone rocks, provide a sophisticated edge to this collection’s ethnic undertones. Whilst channelling a summery exotic look, the look is very much one of grown-up work wear for the summer months, with hits of sharp, pencilled styling. Runway inspired arm candy with chic contrast colour piping and tasseling look modern, whilst geometric prints keep a check on the collection’s cultural appreciation.
Shout-about pieces include a vibrant sliced agate stone necklace, a gemstone edged box clutch and woven ombre colour floppy hat.
Tropical Pansy Moulded Cup & Brief P2300/ Daisy Cutout Bandeau Playsuit P2300
Step into summer with a vibrant new collection of beachwear, inspired by 60s and 70s resort styling. Sharp colour blocking is key, with bold stripes across bikinis and co-ordinating maxi dresses. Prints are young yet directional for guaranteed fun in the sun.
The Accessorize beach look is filled with confidence and curiosity, for the girl who always looks sassy on the sand dunes. New for this season are cutesy playsuits, perfect for beach to bar wear and the printed jersey jumpsuit; the essential current cover-up.
With a love for fashionable footwear, this season’s shoe offering takes a step in a new direction at Accessorize. Summer’s favourite flats takes on the hottest trends of the season. Glossy patent loafers stand out in pops of green and yellow, whilst classic pumps are made with real suede on the inside and out for ultimate comfort and breathability.
Chic plastic jelly shoes make an appearance in baby pink with a cute black bow detail and holiday-ready sandals are full of woven, embellished and metallic details.
Time to put your best foot forward…
Colour intense bandos look stylish against scraped-back buns and wired bow alice bands give a touch of fun to summer styling.
Perfect for bridal season are pearl and sequin hair bands, whilst scarf-tie bandos are ideal for adding a vintage twist to wedding guest attire.
And of course, my own personal faves from their collection:
