...looking at the new hush S/S16 Collection. It's their press launch tomorrow but I'm off on my birthday jolly so was fortunate enough to go up and see them today.
What a perfect way to spend an afternoon - looking at new season clothes. And (sneakily) trying some of them on.
Lots of gorgeous Spring and Summer shades but so much which we can start wearing straight away.
Biggest difference is their new range of shoes which have been designed inhouse (and deliciously named after the designer's family and friends.. I have requested a pair after me for A/W... queue embarrassing looks all round...)
Seriously, as per usual, I could wear almost all of it. But if you held a gun at my head and asked me to pick my best bits....
Ok beginning with the pieces that are available now (either right now or on a pre order. And these will start selling out as soon as they go online).
So to start with - as if by magic, there is a brand new leather jacket. Knowing my current leather jacket dilemma, it was great having the opportunity to try another on. And it's a really really REALLY good fit.
Onyx Leather Jacket £270
Works super well over the jumper I had on today which is always a great start.
Next up, my choice of jumpers. The perfect Spring jumpers and there were two that caught my eye.
First up, blush cashmere. This would be like wearing clouds - I know that sound ridiculous but I can't think of another way to describe their Summer knit. I've never felt cashmere so soft. Such an easy transition from Winter into Spring and then Summer as it would be perfect with all shades of grey and ecru. Not forgetting khaki... Completely sublime. And would also look amazing under the black leather jacket.
Two tone cashmere jumper £120 We did have the conversation about it not photographing very well with regards to seeing the two tones, but in the flesh, the front is a pale blush colour and the back a cream (sorry - just seen it's a champagne...)
On a completely different note - this is ace. It's the perfect antidote to dark January and February nights. The photos really don't convey how stunning this colour is. A lovely vintage style looking knit.
Lotti jumper £65 in coral (which is funny as I would have said, in the flesh, against the other corally coral shades, this is much more of a pink - maybe I should check it's the right jumper. No it definitely is, I'm sure.. - I'll come back and correct if I'm wrong).
Two jumpsuits this season in short sleeves - the black and the khaki. Now I'm not that pleased with those hush people, to be honest, as I already have both a black and a khaki jumpsuit and would have loved a navy or a grey. FOILED.
These are amazing. Still kicking myself that I didn't get the long sleeved jumpsuit. Utter. Idiot.
S/S jumpsuit in black £75
(these shoes by the way are called Sophie shoes - after Sophie the designer and come in the black and a nude leather. Perfect Summer heel, coming shortly).
The two other things I am definitely definitely after, which will be out very shortly.
Olive harems (how amazing would these be with the Onyx leather jacket? Along with a gold linen slub v neck tee they've got, which is a Summer must)
And the fray crop jacket in Ecru. Perfection.
Doesn't exactly work with a jumper but for a throw on jacket in the Spring, this is perfect.
I must stop but as soon as things do start coming in, I will let you know. They have lots of events planned this year about which I will also keep you posted.
Now something else I need to tell you about - and I am sending a spy to see if there are any jumpsuit samples left - the annual hush Sample Sale.
