House of Harlow & Winter Kate SS13
Last week, I went along to the super-cool Hush Restaurant, just off Brook Street, to go and see what exciting treats House of Harlow and Winter Kate have to offer for Spring/Summer 2013. House of Harlow and Winter Kate are the jewellery & accessories and clothing collections created by Nicole Richie. After launching in 2009, these two fashion brands have been unsurprisingly successfully received, with their floaty dresses, pastelly bohemian prints, ethnic embroidery and free spirited beading. When I reached the third floor of Hush, I wandered in a trance, through a heady aroma of incense-scented corridors into the room the press day was being held in, to be welcomed by the prettiest collection of everything I could wish for in a Summer wardrobe. Perfect for long, summery days, Winter Kate (a brand name which is almost a paradox as it couldn’t be further from Winter) clothes were made for gliding through meadows, or lounging around on oversized Moroccan daybeds whilst sipping on the brightest pink cooled Watermelon juice and slipping buttercups into your hair. You get the idea? Heavenly. Originating from LA, these brands fit so perfectly with the Cali-laid-back culture, making the British winter feel even longer than it already is….
