This Spring/Summer season renowned fashion designer Paul Costelloe brings us another incredible womenswear collection. Known as one of the most established in both British and Irish fashion (Not forgetting his career highlight, designing for Princess Diana), we always look forward to seeing the newest collection. The collection “Golden Reflections” showcased this year at London Fashion Week.
This season’s collection was made to radiate optimism and the feeling of new beginnings, with it’s bright and warmer colour scheme. The collection showcases some iconic spring/summer motifs such as daffodil prints, florals, and stripes. These delicate prints are showcased along with a beautiful colour scheme of taupe, cream, burnt umber and Mediterranean blue. Paul Costelloe said “This is the perfect collection to fly a kite and dream”. Using soft, comfortable fabrics and construction make the pieces all pretty versatile, while still being extremely flattering and feminine.
One of the main focal points in this collection, is the iconic Costelloe tailored jackets, which have a beautiful silhouette due to its precise tailoring. The jackets are all made from Irish and Italian printed linens, making them still extremely light and comfortable for the warmer summer weather. These jackets are often paired with slouch relaxed trousers, making a perfect summer power suit. There are also hooded elements added to some of the outfits.
There are also delicately constructed, soft silk dresses. Which are again a lovely light material for summer weather, but look and feel luxurious. They’re paired with a cropped jacket and some metallic backpacks to make up a full outfit. The metallic bags add a nice modern touch to the collection. Along with the cropped jackets, which are very in-style and a versatile piece.
All of the pieces in this collection are extremely wearable but are made with the highest quality construction, texture and comfort. Which is something you can always expect from any piece made by Costelloe. The complimentary and summer themed colour palette makes this whole collection perfect for any summer wardrobe.
