For SS18 Coast unveils their latest collection; using inspirational silhouettes and fabrics, confident colour and nostalgic references. Four key stories emerge with complementing statement accessories; embellished with pearls and sparkle for the ultimate magpie-e.ect, whether worn alone or layered for maximum impact.
W H I M S I C A L
Delicate frills, beautiful florals and sheer layers meet barely-there shades of lemon, powder blue, pink and white. A fanciful palette emphasises the romantic element whilst intricate embroidery, feather trims and feminine details create a sense of nostalgia. Standout pieces include the embroidered jumpsuit, ruffled maxi and feather trimmed cocktail dresses.
N E O - N O S T A L G I C
Sleek and modern shapes take centre stage in this story, influenced by the 90s and contemporary cultural references. A focus on colour blocking is seen through a largely monochrome palette with bodycon silhouettes and eyelet and corsetry detailing adding a subtle but impactful touch. Key pieces include the corsetry dress, striped jumpsuit and eyelet-waisted slip dress.
H I S T O R I C A L
Key design features of the past are reimagined, from fabrics and trims to exaggerated sleeves and necklines. A black-based palette is accented with fresh white and blush, with flashes of metallic and sparkle updating classical to contemporary. Notable styles include the historical sleeved shirt and form-fitting dresses with dramatic ruffles.
C O L O U R P O P
Bright colours provide a sense of optimism and positivity for the season with electrifying shades of orange, red and cobalt. Intense floral prints are elevated on modern, fine cottons and contemporary sheer fabrics, while directional fabrications ensure the bold colours really pop. Look to the extreme ruffle bodycon dress, the printed ruffle jumpsuit and sheer organza maxi dress as the key pieces.
