Spring/Summer 2011...

That's right, while Autumn's designs have finally settled over us like an anticipated fog it seems the next (or next, next?) season is already starting to show itself. And I've decided I officially want to be a Patouf girl. Loose socks, navy skirts with white shirts tucked in and chunky wedges? Yes please, I'll be the first in line. You might know, I have a serious soft spot for Swedish designers but this isn't without good reason. As you can see, the textures, fabrics, colours and shapes Anna has used in this line are gorgeous. I practically want to reach out and touch the girl's trousers in the first image. I love the clean aesthetic of this brand. The use of navy and cream topped off with a healthy dose of peach and mustard looks perfect. The shapes are simple but unexpected with light draping, oversized jumpsuits and a cross over blazer that doubles as a dress. I struggled to chose my favourite pieces, the more I look the more I like each outfit and all the items that comprise it. This is my favourite collection that Anna has designed for Patouf yet. I've especially been won over by the yellow ML bag, the simple dresses, and quirky printed knits... it's never too early to start dreaming, right?
