If you’re a fan of the gorgeous geometric abstract brights of designer Emilio Pucci, you’ll be thrilled with the summer capsule collection at H&M by British designer Matthew Williamson. Williamson recently had a very successful collaboration with Comme des Garcons, and he is bringing his keen sense of prints and brights that mix to this amazing collection for H&M.
One of the most beautiful examples is this classic “New Look” dress. With a nipped in waist and flowing, but not bulky skirt, this retro look shows exactly why the silhouettes of the 50s and 60s flattered the female figure so successfully. Made of silk, this dress is $129.00 at H&M.
A pair of shiny patent finish shoes goes easily from dressing up your skinny jeans to punctuating a cool summer dress. This adorable style comes in four color combos: salmon with a black heart, lemon with a black heart, baby blue with a red heart, or pearl with a red heart. It’s hard to pick a favorite from among these! $185 at melissaaustralia.com
Finally, hats and scarves are fashionable for Summer 2009, and this seashell colored linen cap is an ultra cool way to top off your summer look. The “Valerie” is available in a number of colors and prints from Pandemoniumhats.com. With café colored band and buckle detail, $56.00.
