Teresita Orillac London Fashion Week SS16
Entitled, “Into the Jungle”, it would be fair to presume that Teresita Orillac’s Summer SS16 collection would be extravagant and theatrical. On the contrary, we were treated to a print centric and comprehensive range, from maxi dresses to boxy blazers, these clothes were definitely made to be worn by you and I. A shimmering green printed material was evocative of peacocks or perhaps more exotic birds from Orillac;s native Panama, followed by rich blues and lilacs designed to flatter the feminine form. We loved the full length green gown drawn in at the waist with a thick black belt and thigh skimming flirtatious blue babydoll.
Mimpikita SS16 London Fashion Week
Making their UK debut at London Fashion Week, Mimpikita is a brand developed by three Malaysian sisters. The collection featured luxurious materials of silks and heavy linens, prettily layered to flow loosely around the feminine form. Overall a rather understated collection punctuated with vibrant shades of orange and yellow. Models sported bouffant undos and bold lip colour. To sum up, accessible, wearable and affordable.
