Ok well first & foremost I apologise in advance for this Xxxtra long post but at the S/S 11 Coast preview today there were just so many amazing pieces that Coast have in store for us this coming season that I simply found it too hard to dwindle down my images to a sizeable amount! :)
Now I have to admit I wouldn't have been a regular shopper in Coast before (probably due to the fact that I didn't have many formal evening soirées or weddings to don such elegantly feminine dresses to... Que the violins, hehe), but after attending the press preview today and as I do happen to have a wedding coming up, I saw a lot of dresses that are now serious contenders.
Coasts' vision for their spring summer collection was of playful femininity with a sleek, grown-up edge & the palette, a juxtaposition of beautiful soft ivory, taupe & luscious greens, punctuated with pops of lemon, emerald blue & raspberry.
The cuts, pleats & billowing, draped silk dresses flowed and fell effortlessly. They had styles to suit every body shape and taking inspiration from Mad Men, 70's glamour to the ocean life there were also pieces to appeal to every taste.
Some of the pieces are in-stores now but they will mainly be filtering through to the stores between now & April. Coast are also celebrating 15 years of in-house design and this season marks the launch of the Coast shoe collection consisting of 15 footwear styles.... they are definitely worth popping in for a peep!!!
Coast are also introducing their first ever 'Bridal Collection' which will only be available exclusively in their Dundrum store. The dresses feature many of the seasons fashion trends such as romantic lace, pleats & tulle all translated into timeless styles.
They were all simply stunning....
