Designer Overview / Sarah Louise Autmn/Winter 2013 collection
There are occasions when compromise is simply not an option. This new Autumn/Winter 2013 collection reflects on many traditional and hand working methods to create a natural beauty which is consistent with our ideology. Dresses and tops sparkle more than ever by the subtle use of crystals, beads, sequins and delicate dustings of glitter that, we believe, help set the ranges shown in these pages well apart from the day-to-day. There is always a trend for children’s clothing, particularly clothes for little girls, to reflect adult fashion and we’ve echoed adult design to some extent whilst being careful to maintain an essential traditional innocence and charm.
Each style within the collection, at every stage from design to completion, benefits from the most diligent attention to even the smallest detail. This can be seen in some of the more striking colour selections from the warm reds of tartan and midnight black to majestic royal blues. Consistent with previous collections is the combining of textures, with silky smooth fabrics sitting alongside weaves and knits, sometimes on the same garment but frequently in matching accessories. Similarly, opaque fabrics are often overlaid with transparent materials of almost gossamer-like delicacy, the subtlety and softness of which belie their longevity and ability to delight generations to come, this philosophy prevails within the whole of the Sarah Louise ethos and values.
It’s almost impossible to introduce a new Sarah Louise collection without mentioning the wealth of detail that manifests itself in the trims and tiny touches that combine to create garments that are nothing less than delightful. That’s particularly the case this season because, as noted earlier, there is much that glitters and gleams. The introduction of those extra facets means a great deal more hand work has gone into the creation of many garments but the results, we believe, fully justify the additional effort.
We have created a collection with a greater emphasis than ever on fashion but one that remains true to our ethic of providing children with the very best quality in fabrics and design, combined with the innovation and attention to detail that tells the discerning parent that it is Sarah Louise even without looking at the label.
