whistles_womens_aw14_look14Shot on location at The Barbican, the creative heartbeat of London’s financial district, Whistles Autumn Winter 2014 collection is full of minimalistic elegance with comforting textural accents (leather, faux fur, sequins, knits). You may even be welcoming the end of summer when you glance upon the full range (savvy shoppers will already have placed their orders – whilst they are not fast fashion, Whistles don’t seem to do huge runs of any styles, so don’t be caught out!)

With a beautiful colour palette close to my own heart: black, navy, and pale lavender, a collection of streamlined yet drape-y jumpsuits, skirts and tops (one is also reminded of the aesthetic of Ellery here,) furry coats and cocktail party dresses is waiting for you.

Lilac is a colour that was really important – it has such connotations of twinset and pearls so making it modern feels exciting. Oversized coats were the perfect shape, as if borrowed from your boyfriend. We love the contrast between the volume of a coat like this and a party dress worn underneath… {It is} A playful collection, shaking off sculptural silhouettes and embracing fluid pieces and fabrics that move. Confidence, comfort and chic come together here – we think you’ll find it’s a desirable combination.”

Whistles is one of those brands who provide middle market store offerings but place an emphasis on real, ‘high’ fashion.  From what I remember as being quite a whimsical, girly offering in my younger years, Whistles appears to be growing into an interesting and contemporary brand.  Cool not conventional is how I prefer you, Whistles, and I’m sending you much love for your stunning AW14 line.
