Fed up with Fairground? Misguided with well… missguided? Then look no further as there is a new short-order womenswear brand ready to get you salivating at its skater dresses. Set your eyes on Lashes of London.
Launched in May this year, this feisty little brand has been injecting some much-needed colour into our Spring/Summer 2012 wardrobes with its debut collection, and it is definitely one to watch for Autumn/Winter 2012.
With new styles available every two weeks, this is one playsuit-loving brand with its fingers firmly on the fashion pulse. Despite an obvious nod to the trends of the season, Lashes’ in-house design team also takes inspiration from around the globe. With ‘reinventing yourself, being unique and turning heads’ all integral to the Lashes’ ethos, it is perhaps not surprising that flea markets in LA, art museums in Paris and the streets of its London home have all helped to give an individual twist or one-off embellishment to its bandeau and shift styles. A penchant for laser cutting and on-trend fabrics, such as neoprene, has also helped to it get noticed in the competitive bodycon market.
Moving on from its Fifties-inspired pop-artdebut, Autumn/Winter sees a more confident collection, and a healthy helping of print injected into the mix. With four trends to play with – Brash Baroque, Elektric Nights, Ice Queen and Vintage Luxe – there really is something for everyone. Whether that is galactic prints offering a fun and affordable alternative to Christopher Kane, cool metallics or party-hard neons.
We are getting in a particular flutter (see what we did there?) about the gothic-inspired antique lace tea dresses with leather accents, celestial cigarette pants and embellished statement shoulders that are set to drop over the next few months. Expect all-over sequins, peakaboo chiffon and sweetheart bustiers… that is if we haven’t bought it all before you get there.
With 10% off your first order and free delivery for baskets of £50 or more, please form an orderly queue ladies.
