Baby it’s cold outside! But in our hearts, we are already dreaming of halycon summer days and girls in too beautiful dresses, eating ice cream. So, let us banish thoughts of winter, for a moment, and lift the spirits with a sneak peek of the marvellously feminine SS14 collection from Beautiful Soul.
Beautiful Soul is fast becoming known for the rather life-enhancing drama of its vibrant prints, and the Bee 4 Blossom collection’s floral offering is the epitome of an English Summer. The large white blossom and jewel green leaves stand out magnetically, while the intricate detail of the bees nestled between the flowers adds an vivid dimension to the design. The standout print makes each piece from this collection a fashion statement that will brighten up any day or evening event.
Talking about the inspiration for this collection, Founder and Creative Director, Nicola Woods, says; “I found my calling sitting under a cherry blossom tree in the heart of Tokyo and I wanted to translate that life changing moment, giving it a twist of Notting Hill (English) charm”.
The colour pallet of pastel pink and light blue are perfect for the SS14 candy colour trend, while the 1950’s inspired cinched in waists and knee length skirts give the collection a timeless appeal, these pieces would not look out of place in an elegant Grace Kelly movie. While the classic silhouettes are beautiful, the stand out pieces are the matching separates and short shift dresses, which add a contemporary edge to the collection.
Beautiful Soul uses a range of luxurious silk, cotton and British lace. Material remnants feature as covered buttons and embellishments, ensuring every last thread of fabric is used in the creative process.
Everything from the Bee 4 Blossom collection is a timeless investment that you will wear for years to come.
