David Lawrence is all about juxtapositions this summer, focusing on the contrast between feminine and tailored, soft and hard. There is a real interest in the David Lawrence woman’s lifestyle which has led to pieces in light, breathable fabrics and a new relaxed elegance.
Sophisticated prints such as bold stripes, paisley and abstract florals in blues, greys and pinks will add some fun to any wardrobe. Mix and match with separates in a printed silk shirt or wear as a dress for a lovely lady like look.
Printed short suits are an exciting new twist to the 9-5 ensemble, match your tailored shorts with your silk blouse for a simple but fresh day look. The length of the shorts this season are mid thigh and are designed for versatility. For a weekend look try them with an oversized, untucked shirt for a less structured silhouette.
Feminine black and white broderie anglaise pieces inspired by Bridget Bardot’s wedding dress are a vital part of the collection. The skirt shape is fuller which is a new silhouette for David Lawrence. Completing this key fabric this season is the Bonaire Shell and Hula Shirt.
Pretty pastels in tweed fabrics are the perfect styles to transition from the office to dinner. Wear the Senora jacket over a white silk shell for a casual look or over the Waikiki dress for a board room ready ensemble.
The jumpsuit is a key trend that is here to stay- in classic black the crepe is a great way to try out the trend for the first time. Team the full length version with tribal sandals and a cropped blazer for a chic day ensemble or heels and clutch for a stylish no nonsense look that is ready in 5 minutes.
Never forgetting the classics, go to essential pieces also get a rework. Think the ‘Little Black Dress’ with an asymmetric hem or a white long line blazer worn as a shirt. The options are endless.
