This really has been an amazing week, not only for myself but for the exposure of my prized possession, this blog. After a successful Bertie blogger event, I got a last minute invite to an intimate blogger’s tea party to check out new womenswear label, Faun, and I couldn’t have been more thrilled as this is one seriously gorgeous new brand.
This event had everything you would want from a tea party: a fabulous location at the Out Of Town, a cafe-cum-furniture shop-cum vintage haven *if you haven’t been you should – it is amazing*, you could buy everything from the seats that we were sat on to the amazing Singer sewing machine; then we had truly scrummy cupcakes and cake pops from Molly Bakes; great company, I got to have a catch up and a gossip with Carina100, Wolf Whistle Amy, and I finally got to meet the lovely Alex Loves, and another of my favourite blogger’s La Vie a la Mode *gorgeous and stylish blogger – check her out*; and then to top it all off we got to swoon over new clothes. Yes, I love being a blogger!!
What makes this label for me has to be the quality – most pieces are silk or linen, and the wearability of the gorgeous, feminine clothes. The ethos behind the brand is to ‘bridge the gap between high street and catwalk’, and they certainly achieve that with this debut spring/summer 2011 collection.
The contemporary line features dresses, tunics, bias cut t-shirts and vests *which I have to get*, blouses and even shorts, we were also treated to a preview of the stunning tulip skirts which will be added for autumn/winter *trust me they are worth the wait*.
What I loved was the colour palette, cornflower blues, faded corals, and acid yellows – perfect for summer.
This is my favourite dress from the collection, I love the mixture of linen and silk, the utility vibe with the exposed zip and pockets, and most of all the casual vibe of the dress. Closely followed by this neon yellow colour block silk dress, super flattering, with its black elasticated waist and I love the draped front pockets and black panelling to the back, gorgeous and also comes in a coral print.
If like me you are into flattering silhouettes, girlie touches with cascading ruffles and silk panels teamed with edgy detailing of exposed zips, pockets and cut-outs, which subtle peek through on the backs of the dress, then this is new clothing label for you.
Created by George Singleton, you really must check out the rest of the collection, with prices starting from £80 up to £315 for the key statement pieces, perfect if you have a wedding to attend this summer, or if you are after a casual-yet-chic piece for work, there is something for everyone.
