The hotly anticipated Warehouse SS14 collection preview which I attended last week- where I checked out the newest offerings from this high street gem (and personal favourite of mine) with bated breath and high expectation last week did not- I am glad to report, disappoint! In fact the effect on me was the direct opposite. The collection was a like a bright ray of '70s style summer sunshine illuminating the edgy, modernist store and cutting through the damp, windswept weather we've treated to for the last few weeks.
The Spring/ Summer collection from Warehouse is a total feast for the senses- a riot of eye-popping colour, tropical prints, soft sorbet shades, acid bights, and always-in monochrome. Hem lengths are either mini or midi- and the presence of neoprene (the material used to make scuba-diving suits!) is an interesting accent in the collection- with a superb ability to add full-on girly swing and swirl to a skirt. The strong themes of lace, palest pastels, logo t-shirts and saintly all over white (just grab your halo girls!) are also strong themes in the collection- and prevalent SS14 trends to look out for in all your high street favourites.
