Blonde bombshell Mollie King has once again teamed up with Oasis to bring high street shoppers her second Loved by Mollie collection which features key wearable trends for Spring/Summer 2014. Unveiled not too long ago at an intimate dinner at the Boundary Rooftop in Shoreditch, The Saturdays singer selected her favourite picks for the new season which will no doubt fly off the rails once launched!
Branching out from music into fashion has proved a great move for Mollie, who was recently signed by Next model Management, which is no surprise really as she has always been praised for her impeccable personal style and inspiring approach to putting together flawless understated looks. Following on from the success of her first collection for the affordable label, this latest covetable edit features Mollie’s favourite Oasis pieces for the months ahead.
Perfectly encompassing the star’s style, the SS14 curated range comprises of chic co-ordinates, pretty dresses, longer length hero skirts, including pencil and midi designs, hot leathers and graphic prints.
Talking about this collaboration, Mollie says:
“I’ve always had a real affinity for Oasis and leapt at the opportunity to work on a second collection with such a fabulous fashion brand. I’ve learnt so much throughout the process and cannot wait to see the new collection in store. The new collection really offers something for everyone with an edit that combines trend-led looks alongside more classic pieces – just like my own personal style!”
I’m sad to admit I missed Mollie’s first seasonal collection offering, but this time round I won’t let these outstandingly fashionable pieces slip through my fingers! I’ve set my sights on the floral top and shorts combo as well as the denim dress. Both looks are classically feminine and will be easy to rock this season courtesy of their clean, fresh designs and classic silhouettes.

It would seem the cast from the hit reality show Made in Chelsea are fast becoming forces to be reckoned with in the fashion industry with the latest star, eccentric dresser and blonde haired beauty Phoebe-Lettice Thompson, recently announcing her collaboration with fashion label Illustrated People.
Known for her unique approach to style the multi-talented Phoebe has drawn inspiration from the animated Tokyo fashion scene including Harajuku girls and fashion icon Hiarai Ikeda for her debut collection. Japanese culture has always been influential over fashion due to its diversity and intriguing nature so the MIC star was eager to capture the Kawaii, which means cute, playfulness in Harajuku design.
Juxtaposes imagery such as rotting teeth and masculine shorts with pastel hues and 90s silhouettes will feature in the worth-waiting-for Phoebe-Lettice Thompson X Illustrated People range which will be available to buy on IllustratedPeople.com and at Topshop from the 26th May 2014 with prices starting from £30.00.
Pocket London, created by Made in Chelsea star Louise Thompson and Edward Page, has teamed up with designer Maya Finkelstein Amrami for its Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection Spirit of London. This collaborative hook-up infuses their different disciplines to rediscover the spirit of the inspirational city.
Known for creating staple jeans which feature a unique and understated trademark, the coloured pocket, Pocket London’s collaboration with the creator of Love MAYKA is a bold but exciting step for the British brand. Maya is known for her signature prints and authentic approach to fashion, drawing her inspiration from the world around her to create outstanding designs that appeal to an international audience.
The AW14 range has a sports luxe vibe and consists of printed jeans and fabric combinations, bomber jackets, Lycra bodycon dresses, Lycra leggings, t-shirts, tracksuits and a denim jacket. This urban feel of the upcoming collection captures London in a theatrical way which will make these beautifully vivid pieces stand-out amongst the sea of autumnal colour palettes.
If you’re not into floral prints then look to spots and stripes as your perfect pattern alternatives. Seen all over the SS14 designer catwalks, such as Burberry Prorsum, these slightly retro prints have been reworked in cool fun ways to ensure your wardrobe is far from drab this season.
Fashion has been overtaken by polka dots in numerous colours and size variations appearing on not only flirty dresses but on cute separates. They are great for creating quirky looks and the subtle femininity of the print gives a kooky option for women who don’t want to dress head-to-toe in florals. Dotty covered garments can be just as pretty and thanks to the host of sugary sweet hues you’ll feel wonderfully chic and on-trend.
