Veronica B. Vallenes, a break from tradition
I realised I had been posting mainly black, striking clothes purely because I've been ridiculously busy lately and they are the first thing that caught my eye. So this post is a little more considered and, well, just plain pretty.
These images are from Norwegian designer Veronica B. Vallenes Autumn/Winter '10 collection, but the lighter pieces would be oh so perfect for Spring/Summer. I can just imagine myself strolling down the beach in the pale pink jumpsuit. I also love the more suited to A/W pieces, my favourite being the cape/scarf, that may just be the styling of the shoot though.
The large, airy, light and open space suits the collection down to the ground. It makes me think of a modernised wartime woman with some serious style. The softness of the images work really well though I can't help but think if this was The September Issue, Anna Wintour would be having none of it...
