Wonderful example of the block structured clothing making its way next year, mixing with the bright neon colour trend

I’ve chosen blue and pink to be inspired by as these were the most striking colours, in my opinion, that were on the runway.

Pastel Perfect 

———————————————–

intro to pastel

 

How would someone wear pastels if they were going on a romantic first date?

P1

 

Pastels always remind me of the beautiful Marie Antoinette movie. How would she wear SS14 pastels in London is she lived there? Notting Hill… meet Marie Antoinette.

The city has proven stressful for Marie, it’s time for a relaxing weekend away in the city of lights (and romance?!) PARIS.

Screen shot 2013-11-22 at 17.33.27

 

After a lovely break away in Paris, back to the city for Marie it is… here are her daily looks using pastels. (Night time, gym, dog walking, work)

Artists that use pastels:

Vicente Romero

Such beautiful colouring, these images have wonderful flow and breath realism. Pastel colours dance grace and femininity.

I’ve used SS14 inspired colours and clothing to make looks that are are interesting and unique.

Screen shot 2013-11-22 at 20.32.55

Here I’ve created looks that are influenced by the designs that were on the SS14 catwalk, mixed with my personal taste and what I feel would be a way I’d wear florals next season.

In the media:

The Carrie Diaries is a ‘Sex in the city’ spin off tv show, based on Carrie as a teenager. The TV show was made in 2012/2013 and used bold colours and crazy patterns to replicate 80’s fashion.

Safari in film:

The fashion used in Out of Africa reminds me a lot of the SS14 safari trend, sophisticated and elegant all mixed together, an interesting combination if you actually think what dressed down typical safari clothes would really look like.
