One of my favourites of the Panache sub-brands, Cleo! The Cleo SS15 collection features lots of coral, cobalt and bright pink.
Minnie Padded Longline in Sky Blue Spot, available in 28-38 D-J.
Kali, a sheer unpadded style which will be replacing Lucy. This is available in Cobalt and Coral, sizes 28-38 D-J.
Koko Mode, a moulded plunge in Coral. This features a thin leopard print fabric overlay, which adds a nice bit of detail to an otherwise basic bra. Available in 28 F-H, 30-38 D-H.
Koko Flirty, a similar moulded plunge in a lovely teal colour. I love the lace used on the band and the back of the briefs. Available in 28 F-H, 30-38 D-H.
Maddie Spot in Teal, again with pink highlights. There will also be a Cobalt colourway in the regular Maddie style. Available in 28 D-H, 30-38 B-H.
Kira, a new balconette style featuring a fresh floral print in crisp shades of blue on a light base, with baby pink highlights. I love this set! It’s yet another gorgeously fresh, sweet piece for Spring. There were a few other balconettes this season that I did not photograph, including the new Erin (very similar to Lily), Phoebe (a floral pink style, similar to Kali), and a new colourway for the Maya (Teal Leopard). Available in 28 E-H, 30 D-J, 32 B-J.
Koko Icon in “Nude” (i.e. beige), which features lovely baby pink bow detailing. This is a new basic style for Cleo, a strapless plunge. Unlike the other two Koko styles, this has a full band, which I think will help to keep the bra in place. Available in 28-38 D-G.
Finally, the piece I am most excited for this season – basic Marcie! After years of customers asking, Marcie will now come in new continuity colours of beige and black! I absolutely, absolutely adore the beige version – the lighter polka dots add an absolutely beautiful touch, while still keeping it neutral enough to be subtle under clothes. There is also a fashion colourway, Magenta Orange, which features a bright pink base with bright orange polka dots. Available in 28-38 D-J.
I also saw a few Cleo Swim pieces! This is the Cassie bikini set, which includes a longline bikini and high-waist briefs. I didn’t get a photograph of this set, so this is a picture from the brochure. I adore the cut of this set, though I’m still not sure about the print – I think perhaps the lighting of the photo might be throwing me a little. I think this will be a very popular set! Available in 28-38 D-H.
One really adorable set, the Betty in Yellow. This really is too cute. Available in 28-38 D-H.
Finally, my other favourite from the Swim collection, the Leena set. I love the contrasting yellow detailing, as well as the white polka-dot-esque hearts. I’m not certain of the size range for this, but I believe it’s at least 28-38 D-H.
Overall I really like the season from Cleo! There are a few pieces I’m not so keen on, but the pieces I love (basic Marcie!) definitely outnumber them.
