A Style Post – Purple Oriental Floral Prints

Hey All,

I was at the Oasis A/W11 preview yesterday in Dublin. Oasis have joined the majority of the High Street in creating a hugely vintage-inspired collection for this Autumn / Winter.

Think 70’s sheer and metallic fabrics, midi-length dresses and knee-high boots, all in ox-blood, cerulean and mustard shades.

Think 60’s textures and prints; like Hounds-tooth and leather accents in monochrome and red.

With the appointment of a new buyer, the focus yesterday was very much about the accessories. I saw boots, biker, riding, ankle and knee-high; ballet flats in animal prints; delicious high-heeled loafers and beautifully made, classic leather handbags with pony-skin details.

I also had to try on this purple and fuchsia-pink, oriental print skirt & top outfit. (It’s limited edition and only available in the flagship stores, with 100 units of each.)

Top and Skirt, Oasis A/W 2011

Mini-bow necklace, Tesco

Shoes, Steve Madden

As for the rest of the collection:

High-heeled ox-blood loafers

Heeled loafers and ballet flats in animal prints / with horn detailing

Leather and Suede biker boots

Brown leather and pony skin bag

Black leather and pony skin bag

Rose-pink tweed suit

Check cape

Brown leather pencil skirt

Brown Crombie coat

Yours,

Whisty Xx

    Loved that oriental/chaotic print number on you – I quite fancy the skirt myself as a standout piece worn with a plain top. The photo of you playing with the flower is exceptionally cute though!

    I love the leopard print bag! I’m usually not a fan of animal print handbags, but that one seems really elegant.
