H&M Home have embraced all things twee and kitsch this spring/summer, from gingham to cherry patterns. This Lemonade Tea Towel should fill you full of the joys of spring, even if you dare not yet venture out without a scarf yet.
The first range was launched last October and was generally well received. A good enough response for a second Fred Perry x Amy Winehouse collection, this time the spring/summer 2011 range.
According to Fred Perry, much of the range is apparently 'a tiki re-working' of Fred Perry classics, including the Harrington and the twin-tipped polo shirt. But with the collection now double its original size (32 pieces), there is also now room for bags, shoes and accessories plus a few new clothing designs.
See over the page for lots more images from the range, including a gingham bowling shirt, a Hawaiian print halter neck dress and shirt and scarlet red hot pants alongside accessories including the Amy barrel bag, wide waist straw belts, a printed silk scarf plus suede and leather moccasins in a variety of colours. On the shelves and on the website from Monday 7th March if you want to buy.
As high street designs move from heavy Winter options to Spring and Summer collections, fabric choices allow for a whole new variety of textures and cuts to shine. This Linen Tab Neck Dress from Dorothy Perkins' Closet concession line is an ideal frock for warmer weather, with some stylish retro influence on show.
The simple shift cut is instantly sixties, with just enough figure skimming to create a sharp silhouette. With capped sleeves and a mid thigh hemline, the real gem is the tabbed high collar. With the ideal balance of conservatism and femininity, the pockets add a hint of wearable daytime style.
It's now available from Dorothy Perkins for £30.
