SIL Preview: Elomi AW16

The last Wacoal Eveden brand I’ll be covering is Elomi! I usually preview Elomi and Goddess together, however, this preview will mostly be of Elomi, as for some reason there was only one Goddess style available for me to look at. I’m not sure if the other samples were being shown elsewhere, or if Goddess are primarily focussing on continuity styles rather than fashion styles at the moment, but it’s something to keep in mind for this preview. The Elomi AW16 collection primarily features shades of teal, bright blue, red, brown and black, with pops of silver, pink and white.

Teal is a strong colour for this season, as shown in the Bijou and Portia. Let me start this preview by saying that this Bijou longline is quite possibly the prettiest style from Elomi I have ever seen. Look at it!!! The rich teal colour, the bold black piping above the cups, the scalloped lace overlay, it is just perfection. I also really liked the Portia – on first glance, the print looks almost like stained glass windows, but when looking closer, the details of the butterfly print really come out.

Moda Previews: Panache Black SS15 & Sculptresse SS15

The final Panache sub-brands I’ll be previewing, the Panache Black SS15 and Sculptresse SS15 collections. As of SS15, Masquerade will be re-branded as Panache Black. Some styles will be continued or revised for the new collection, but sadly some well-loved Masquerade styles are missing. In particular, the lack of Rhea is very noticeable – I hope this is just for now, as I know so many people will be gutted if it isn’t!
