We dive into the deep blue this summer at Whistles – with the colour of the sky and sea forming the basis of the Pre-Fall collection. All shades are explored – from the swimming pool turquoise that spells sunshine on a wrap dress to the crisp bite of teal on a pleated all-in-one, alongside the hardest working shade of blue: navy, whilst a t ease of Autumns trending brown layers offer a sophisticated tone.
Shapes are loose, with flounces adding a flirty touch to a fluid silhouette with an elegant midi hemline dominating. A subtle sex appeal of body-skimming dresses, shown through the lounge-y feel of asaffron-coloured asymmetric dress, or on vivid c o-ords. With hothouse flowers and a slither of midriff,this is a modern take on tropical glamour, one that works both i n the city and by the sea. A fringed black maxi and a khaki cape back dress are the kind of piece ready for any event a summer diary could throw at it.
This season signature prints play with modern summer florals, blooms cover a sea green wrap dress, while a hibiscus reimagined in turquoise or ochre is unexpected – and transseasonal – when it comes with a backdrop of polka dots. F ind it in a blouse or a wide-legged jumpsuit and on asweeping floor length maxi dress. A micro-daisy, meanwhile, adds a touch of whimsy, on a wide-sleevedmidi-dress or ruffled mini.
As well as our signature jumpsuit – this season reworked in linen and delicat e jacquards, with asweetheart neckline – separates are offered to mix and match. Wide-legged is the trouser shape for 2018, with belted paperbag waist, pinstriped or classic denim options, perfectly paired with a summer knit to add a sculptural feel. A one-shouldered shape is an investment that comes with effortless impact.
