Essentiel s/s12: Spring’s (almost) here



The holidays are behind us and the days are slowly starting to get longer. I might be overly optimistic here but spring is on its way! We still have some cold and wintery days to conquer, but I’m already looking forward to wearing colourful dresses… And it looks like me and my newly found love for bright colours will be especially happy upcoming season. The s/s 2012 collections are a real pattern fest!

The colour blocking trend continues, and the pattern blocking trend is introduced. Stripes, florals, psychedelics,… Throw all those prints together and look what happens: magic! The spring summer collection of Antwerp-based label Essentiel is all about bright colours and bold prints (I posted this preview back in November). I’m in love with each and every piece – mostly the printed dresses and that delightful chunky cardigan.
