After living in her gorgeously printed silk wear last summer (Read about my previous Lulu Hayes posts here) I was eager to try Lucy’s new season’s collection and it does not disappoint. As ever the beautiful pure silk fabrics are light and delicate but perfect for layering should temperatures take a turn and I stand by my statement in previous posts – these are the ONLY clothes you will need to pack if you have a hot weather break booked for this summer.
The AW16 collection sees a development of Lucy’s expressionist inspired artwork resulting in soft, urban prints in a variety of new silhouettes. Lulu Hayes’ classic printed combos are updated with the introduction of a sleeveless waterfall placket blouse but for me the real show stoppers are the midnight blues smokey paint printed dress, pictured below, with flattering side panels which gives the airy cut a lengthening illusion.
Core favourites of previous seasons have made a comeback in new prints designs including the halter neck backless dress (above) which I can vouch for as being super flattering and forgiving, especially when you’ve started the Summer ice-cream binge in May.
LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS.
Despite starting as female oriented brand there is truly something for the guys in AW16. From more formal luxury shirts with print detailing to stylish weekend wear in Kooples style corresponding prints
