Unimaginable is probably at the foremost point of your brain if I was to say S/S12. Having been rocked by a cold spell that seems never ending (it will warm up, promise!) attempting to enthuse you with the array of colours, texture and pattern for the coming months feels like a fools errand. But press on I will with what you can get now for the future.
When I ran my style clinic to help raise funds for petit garcon's primary school pamper evening the other night as the snow fell outside I found myself dissin' yellow. It was in the context of telling the school mums to embrace colour and enjoy the veritable feasts of colour, texture and print hitting the high street stores. And then I go and spoil it all by saying 'maybe not to start with yellow'.
I love yellow and love wearing yellow but over the years I've learned to respect its power. It can illuminate or diminish how you feel in an instant when you put it on.On the one hand it is the colour of happiness and on the other the colour of madness. Tricky.
But these ochre suede strap sandals from Mint Velvet at £99 bridge the gap between laughter and fear in a splendid sunny fashion.
