Sable & Minx ‘Lady Day Summer’ S/S 09/10 Collection Review

Sable & Minx Elise Dress SummerTheresa Brady, the designer of street wear label Doosh and the newer casually elegant Sable & Minx has produced another stunning collection, “Lady Day Summer” for SS 09/10.

As the name suggests it’s a very feminie collection, which uses lots of floral’s, dresses and flattering cuts. The collection is heavy on Capri and three quarter styles, which to be honest I have never been a fan of, but I find myself liking them when paired with Sable & Minx’s beautiful floral tops, scoop neck fitted tees and sheer sleeveless blouses.

The colour scheme is quite subdued for a summer range but remains beautiful. A predominantly blue colour palette takes us from the palest baby blues through forget-me-not and teal, right down to deep navy denim. There’s also an abundance of white, which makes the highlight colours; violet, and a touch of yellow really pop.

The knitted pieces, which ooze casual elegance, are mostly grey making them effortlessly versatile.

All of the tops are named after women, mostly Hollywood movie stars or characters, it seems to be a common trend this season to give the clothes girls names. The Gigi top (below right) is my favourite from the collection, although closely followed by the Elise dress and Onassis pants (below left).

I could see myself swanning around an island on a millionaires yacht in those Onassis pants (pictured above left) – maybe the point of the names is to get you in the right mood for each piece?

I suppose I’ll have to buy them and see if a millionaire turns up to whisk me away to that Mediterraenean island.
