Holly Fulton Spring/Summer 2014 Collection

Think lazy hazy summer days and glittering glamorous nights of the 70s, especially 1977 and with soft focus pop siren Noosha Foz as muse.

Post Modernist pattern is diffused across billowing lightweight silks.

Florals take on a new dimension, a nod to the romantic vision of Laura Ashley- intensely embroidered and symmetrical on shirt dresses or softly sprayed across structured shapes.

The large collection includes fluid silk shirt dresses, flowing maxi skirts, structured A lines, pyjama silk lounge suits with dressing gown style coats and

... denim pinafore dresses with fan shaped bibs. The fan shape also made its appearance in the prints, as cut outs on the front of tops, jewellery and as large colourful clutch bags. 

 Juxtaposing with the soft fabrics of silk and denim, is the stiffer textured cork. Inspired by geometric concrete friezes of sculptor William Mitchell the cork material was cut, elasticated and linked with a crystal to form unique decorative silhouettes.  

For evening the glitz comes in the guise of tinsel coats and crystal chokers.
