Cecilia Lake debut capsule collection

It’s been ages since I’ve been grabbed by a new designer, but this debut capsule collection by Cecilia Lake is certainly doing it for me….

Cecilia’s collection has just been shown at Graduate Fashion Week and was inspired by the fascinating (and tragic) 1930s photographer and journalist, Annemarie Schwarzenbach.

Schwarzenbach had a full-on androgynous style that was ahead of its time and Cecilia Lake has mashed up the masculine silhouette with ethnic influences. Don’t know about you, but I’m loving the easy, casual effect peppered with feminine touches and the timeless neutral palette; it’s super-stylish, ladies.

A gorgeous summer look this dress has all the essential elements I require; high collar, midi length and it would go with my deck shoes
One serious waistcoat
Safari chic
Androgynous workwear
Love the Persian rug appeal of this dress coat – and just check out the shoes
This debut capsule collection is all abou the detail
