The boyfriend inspired coat is bang on trend

KELLY LOVE - The boyfriend inspired coat is bang on trend
See Lookbook
Love’s collection is an alluring display of gorgeous tones well suited to the Autumn/winter season – burgundies, navies, warm browns and turquoise. The use of floral print with the delicate chiffon and silk materials as well as faux fur adds a depth of decadence to the overall selection which I believe makes it rather couture. Despite this couture factor, it also has a slight edge, particularly in the pieces such as the black jumpsuit with a fitted floral blazer which, in spite of the name of the collection ‘flowers & grandeur’ prevents the overall aesthetic of the collection from being too commercially feminine. Particular favourites of mine are the chiffon shirt with pleated floral print which starkly contrasts the black sleeves, such a strong contrast that it offers a masculine appeal as well as the metallic lilac shirt with the intricate, oriental print, both of which are versatile items which can be dressed up or down. The boyfriend inspired coat is bang on trend with the ombre colouring, an unusual yet show stopping piece. Overall, this collection is a showcase of craftsmanship and the clever manipulation of textures and colour.
