This week I was invited to view the Preen Resort 2013 collection in London.
Of all the Resort 2013 collections, this one stands out the most. Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi were inspired by Jeff Koon paintings, which is why the collection features so many bright pops of colours.
I fell in love with the pieces, which combined Nick Knight photography with digital brushstroke prints.
As always, my first question was, “Have any celebrities been requesting this collection?” and I was excited to learn that they have been inundated with requests, which is not surprising.
Alongside the strong prints, which I’m certain will catch the eye of the colour-loving Mrs Obama, were cute, dainty two-tone jacquard dresses that are perfect for the likes of Michelle Williams, Rachel Bilson, Keira Knightley and Kate Bosworth.
There were also some striped and colour-blocking menswear-inspired suits I can picture on Leelee Sobieski, Chloe Sevigny and Solange Knowles.
Other key pieces included a vibrant floral and striped maxi dress, striped shirts, cropped sweaters, tapered pants, one-shoulder dresses and an eye-popping coral dress with a cropped-top overlay and a sheer beaded inset.
I can’t wait to see how that works on the red carpet.
