So today's the day..... and I slept in.
Not that I have any money in my bank account, but I was planning on joining the cue (pardon the pun) and getting amongst the designer capsule collection madness.
In the lead up to this much anticipated event that includes the southern hemisphere in the collaboration madness (following on from Lanvin for H&M) I had done my best to predict what direction the collection would take. Of course, it would put any office fashionista on the top of the aesthetic status ladder as a lot of Cue's structural pieces do, however I expected delicate fabrics reminiscent of his SS2010 stand-out collection at RAFW. Today however I was pleasantly surprised with a well tailored shirt which I am absolutely coveting more than anything else. The collection also channeled a corporate winter including heavy textures of wool, felt and knit, a somber colour palette and on-trend injections of camel and khaki.
Below are my favourite picks.
Blazer With Sleeve Slash $450 arrives March; Dinner Shirt $99 arrives March; Double Ponte Bike Skirt $320 arrives April
Felt Moulded Dress $360 arrives April
Trench With Floating Yoke $550 arrives March; Utility Pocket Skirt $250 arrives March; Dinner Shirt $99 arrives MarchShare
Beware if I see you in store and you're trying on my Dinner Shirt.
