TREND: DRAMATIC CUTS
Man-repelling looks, oversized pieces and dramatic cuts have been taking over the runway recently, and have now started to trickle their way down to the high street too. I was so inspired reading about the innovative designs of Ellery a few months back in Vogue, how she likes her clothes to take up lots of space, but artfully gathered in the right places to create the perfect silhouette and showcase the textile genius that she is. I was obsessed straight away. I have always loved pieces that come away from the colour and decorative elements of fashion design and let the structure and tailoring of the clothes do all of the talking. The women wearing these pieces are sophisticated, daring, clean, cool, they have their shit together and are confident in their style.
Cue House of Sunny, introducing the same innovative shapes, fluted sleeves and neutral fabrics but for less than a third of the designer price tag we see with Ellery. As much as I would love to indulge in every shirt and dress from the 2016 ready-to-wear collection, my bank balance just wouldn't survive the blow. Hence why I have invested in House of Sunny as my new go-to wardrobe.
I first spotted House of Sunny at London Fashion Weekend in 2015, and I was instantly drawn to their stand falling head over heels by each piece on the rail one by one. I knew I had found my new wardrobe staples. And this is House of Sunny's expertise - staple dressing, super sized basics with clean cuts and a flawless aesthetic. These are the clothes I throw on without any thought and straight away I have created an outfit, an effortless look that makes me feel like I have just fallen off the runway. High quality, affordable, flattering and different - there's no denying this brand is on to a style revolution.
