Whilst one half of this ensemble screams sci-fi femme, the other half dips into demure ladies who lunch.

We love prada’s spring/summer 2013 womenswear campaign which follows in the same vain as the menswear campaign. Incorporating a series of intimate portraits of models, intended to reveal the models’ individual personas and channelling Prada’s take on modern felinity. Staying true to the collection’s strong aesthetic the campaign’s imagery reinforces Prada’s oriental inspiration with it’s bold placement florals and the stark colour palette of white, black, red and über feminine pastel pink fur. Models in the campaign include Eva Herzigova, Sasha Pivovarova, Amber Valletta, Vanessa Axente, Saskia de Brauw, Irina Kravchenko, Sung Hee, Irene Hiemstra, Kirsten Owen, Maartje Verhoef and Raquel Zimmermann.

We love Julien David’s play date prints, especially the cute knife conversational prints used on a series of knitted unisex items from scarves, hats and sweaters in warm beige. Perfectly adding a fun and youthful twist to your winter ensemble.

As the air becomes crisper those extra layers become even more important. With those sleigh bells ringing more loudly at this time of year, it only seems right to invest in knitwear with festive properties. We think this Meadham Kirchhoff knitted sweater shines more brightly than any bauble.
