This was my first press event ever and I was pretty nervous because of the expectations I had of such an event.. I expected to enter a room full of gorgeous clothes, fashion people and fellow bloggers and that idea made me slightly high-strung. But when I entered the big hall, the only thing that lived up to my expectations were the clothes. The room was literally EMPTY! Really confusing. Nevertheless, this gave me the chance to roam around in the entire new collection of Patrizia Pepe, and I must say I loved it to bits!
The collection mainly consisted of the colours we have seen in a lot of SS10 collections: powder pink, khaki and mint. At this point I'm a fan already, I die for pastel palettes! But it doesn't end here. Because Patrizia Pepe is often all about popping colours, the collection contains a tad of coral and floral print as well. And to give it that typical Patrizia Pepe glam touch, the designers added items loaded with embellishments and crocodile structured leather. Sounds good? I'd say it does.
I managed to take a picture of the showroom for you, but you'll have to be a little bit patient for the actual pictures of the looks. I'm going to do a detailed post in about a month and a half about the newest PP collection. Be on the lookout.. the butter-soft leather tanktop dress with cutout details, buckled wedges in camel and grey leather snakeskin bag made my heart skip a beat. Can't waint to share it with you!
To keep you occupied I took a few pictures of the collection that's in stores now.
Asymmetric leather jackets, sequins, tweed, do I need to say more? HELL YEAH. See that dusty-pink faux fur coat in the back? I think I need that coat in my life in order to survive...!
Now on to the outfit I wore to the event. Told you this was an image heavy post!
Ruffled dress | H&M
Oversized knit cardigan | ZARA
Wedge booties | Topshop
Faux snakeskin clutch | Primark
Belt | vintage
Nailpolish | CHANEL 491 Rose confidentiel
I just mixed all of the things I liked together.. My favorite chunky knit item, a pastel coloured dress, my new Primark clutch, and my alien-esque Topshop booties.. Love love love.
I hope I made up for the lack of posting dearies, more to come soon...
