You may remember my #letsgettroipical exclusive preview for Circus PR, well the day was as fun and exciting as it was geared up to be! It may have been raining outside but inside at the press event it was like a tropical heatwave, guests were greeted with flower bracelets and necklaces to keep in with the very tropical theme. I went straight for the circus coloured jelly beans which were a great treat!
The venue had a lot of space so each brand was set up in it’s own area and theme, Scotch R’Belle, Scotch Shrunk, Soft Gallery, Nippaz With Attitude, Jacques + Sienna, Imps & Elfs, Sierra Julian, Miniserie, ST Girls and Hucklebones were all displayed on the day with the SS14 collections. There was also a mini jewels area which had some adorable necklaces and bracelets.
One of my favourite collections from the day has to be the Hucklebones Spring Summer collection, it is so clean yet girly with a sophisticated edge. The fabrics in the collection are amazing using fine jersey and soft silks. I love the delicate looking pastel colours mixed with hues of mustard and coral, some pieces also have a nautical feel to them which is perfect for summer.
An ongoing favourite of mine is ST Girls, their collections are always so on trend with some great prints and cool pieces for young girls. This collection is a ‘Hawaii’ inspired collection which fits in nicely with the theme of the day. With many fine fabrics to keep them cool, birds of paradise prints, summer pastels with pops of neon and some great girly accessories such as shoes finished off with bows. With 115 styles ranging from printed jumpsuits and coloured skinny jeans to maxi dresses and even see through raincoats this collection has something for every occasion in a young girl’s summer wardrobe.
I particularly loved the offering for younger babies, it was the first time I had seen the cool brand Nippaz with attitude giving a collection of some iconic lines on baby’s bibs, t-shirts and bodysuits. I also came across a cute gift box by Imps & Elfs ‘full of bodysuits’ ♥
My plan was to finish this piece with a nice image of the fabulous goody bag and all it’s treats but Baby A put on all her jewellery and accessories thanking CIrcus PR for ‘her presents’ without giving me a chance to take any pictures! (I did however keep the jelly beans for myself)
