Colour me edgy: Kirsty Ward Spring/Summer 2015

I recently took a bit of a break from blogging, however I’m back! And I’m glad to be back, because it means I get to resume highlighting superb talent, including the lovely Kirsty Ward.

I’m thrilled to say that Kirsty is seemingly on the edge of the “emerging” and “made it!” barrier, as her work is getting quite a lot of attention these days, and it’s easy to see why.

For Spring/Summer 2015 (I know I should be highlighting Autumn/Winter 2015 collections right about now, but give it time…), Kirsty produced another sublime collection with an effortless mix of simplicity, femininity in the form of beautiful overlaying and top notch accessories, and lots of edge. And yes, I mean that heads-turning-as-she-walks-into-the-room kinda edge. Kirsty’s jewellery is as loud and chunky as ever, but that’s the way we like it. Not to mention her fantastic collaboration with Williams Handmade, who’s bags are nothing but marvellous.

Paul Smith Spring/Summer 2015

Paul Smith’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection has impressed me. I’m not usually a huge fan of Paul Smith clothing, however I do like his accessories, but this collection is really beautiful!

I love the versatility of the pieces in this collection, ranging from colourful, printed tops and knitwear, to simple, embroidered sweatshirts, silk trousers and tailored jackets. With the huge array of choice this collection offers, I’m sure both you and I would find it incredibly difficult to not find something we loved.

Y-3 Spring/Summer 2015

For Spring/Summer 2015, Y-3 present a somewhat predictable collection. Black ensembles sit alongside strong, white shirts and dresses, as well as pretty floral prints. Hints of metallic are something I’m happy to see for Spring/Summer 2015, as I love a bit of metallic. However, other than that, nothing’s that new.

Despite that, I really like the versatility of this collection – enabling you to purchase key pieces and style them in a variety of ways – so it still gets a thumbs up from me!

Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2015

Marc by Marc Jacobs has gone crazy with its prints and strong colours for Spring/Summer 2015, and I just love it!

It’s all about patchwork as shirts, jackets, trousers and shorts are a little mad – in a good way! A vibrant, varied palette of black, blue, green, red, purple and pink lets us know that summer is here and, by the looks of it, it’s going to be a fun one!

Kenzo Men’s Spring/Summer 2015

Full of pastel tones and patterns, Kenzo men’s Spring/Summer 2015 is as colourful as expected. Quirky, striped coats, trousers and sweatshirts are shown alongside spotted suits, jackets and shorts, while soft pastel pink knitwear and pastel green and blue casual wear, including printed vests, fool you into thinking it could be a perfect summer after all, with beaming sunshine and countless days out at the beach. It may not be true, but it’s nice to dream, and these clothes are absolutely beautiful.

Kenzo never get it wrong!

Fendi Men’s Spring/Summer 2015

With shades of black, blue, grey and green dominating, Fendi’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection is a lot darker than I anticipated. Although, being someone who admires a darker palette, I appreciate it all the same. Soft blue tailored shirts and jackets sit alongside patchwork sweaters and t-shirts, and beautiful, albeit subtle leather bags pull the collection together effortlessly.

I didn’t expect there to be so much outerwear in this collection, but I can’t deny that I want every single snug-looking jacket or coat there is. Does Fendi know something we don’t about what the great British weather has in store for us next year?

A. Sauvage Spring/Summer 2015

Tailored, British neatness with a hint of contemporary, urban edge, A. Sauvage is one of my favourite British menswear designers, and I think it’s clear why…

For Spring/Summer 2015, eye-catching prints sit alongside classic leather jackets and pristinely cut blazers, while printed shirts act as the perfect middle-man for a punch of versatility.
