Spring 2014 – Prints are back!
From L-R: Bora Aksu, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Karen Walker
Forget the upcoming winter season, London’s finest designers have us all eagerly anticipating Spring 2014 with light, pastel shades, pencil skirts and slight prints.
The latest collection by Kitty Ferreira is a sea of terracotta orange, nude and hand-dyed yellow prints. These tones have been appearing in several other designers collections too, including Bora Aksu’s canary yellow ensemble, high-waisted shorts and kimono jacket paired with a subtle spotted, white shirt. This waist line is also featured in the Kitty Ferreira collection on tailored trousers and long length shorts.
Kitty Ferreira’s Pomonion Coat is hand dyed with pomegranate and onion skins to create a unique print giving it a vintage effect. Each piece made from these prints varies slightly to the next, making sure that everyone has something different and exclusive to them. Soft prints were also seen in 3.1 Phillip Lim’s designs, his boxy, white tie-dye shirt, with matched print dark trousers, demonstrates the print trend which is proving popular in many other collections this season.

Pantone’s Celosia Orange is one of ten trend colours that will be showing up in spring next year. Designers in the UK have taken this on board incorporating the citrus hue into their designs. Karen Walker revealed a burnt orange, oversized jacket during her London show in September. The terracotta Delice dress with silk sleeves is versatile and perfect for the season with a wrap neckline and cinched in waist.
Be prepared for spring next year, cover yourself with soft and breezy prints. Invest in those clothes that will secure their place in your wardrobe and with Kitty Ferreira’s spring collection, made from only upcycled materials, these trends are all beautifully combined into individual designs.
