Scottish fashion designer Holly Fulton, known for her love of bold prints and Art Deco touches, took her spring/summer 2014 collection to the Seventies with bright hues, billowing silks and quirky prints.
This was without doubt one of my favourite Holly Fulton collections, I just loved the energy and the vibrancy of the pieces, from the delicate tinsel jackets to the geometric prints, to the stork adorned skirt dresses and slouchy trousers.
Not only was the colour palette amazing with the sugary lilac and powder pinks teamed with flashes of faded neon and greys perfection together, but the collection itself mixed sophisticated elegance with playful and wearable to make this one of Fulton’s most commercial collections to-date.
That isn’t to say that this collection doesn’t have her bold aesthetic, it does, but there was a sporty element with the relaxed bombers and slouchy pyjama suits that was good to see, with one of my favourite pieces being the magic-eye-esq ‘77’ floral embroidery jumper dress and sweatshirt.
Highlights for me were the denim pieces, featuring layered Art Deco inspired motifs on skirts, jackets and tops, the sporty ‘77’ jumper and the cool embossed and laser-cut cork dresses that totally took me by surprise trying to figure out what the material was.
As well as loving the collection I also have to point out the incredible hair and make-up – the asymmetric parting, the 70s curls, and the lilac lids – a modern take on 70s glamour.
