Mint Velvet is a new brand on my 'want,want,want' radar (yes, there is one) and along with similar brands like Isabella Oliver and Next who really do the 'classic' styling well, Mint Velvet to me, incorporate all that is classy and timeless with some real high fashion pieces. July's drop really did make me stop and stare. Before I talk about the content of clothes, it has to be the tones and colours that have been chosen that really made me stare. Unlike many other trends for brights and sickly sweet sorbet colours, Mint Velvet July drop has a heavy emphasis on smokey grey's, dusky pinks, gentle creams and stark contrasting black. Altogether it's different from everyone else. Aside from the colours, there is some beautiful attention to details and diverse use of fabrics used. Heavy floral embroidery and applique feature throughout giving the clothes much more depth to the normal simplicity of this season's style around. Lace, silks and leather give it a grown up feel of luxe - everything about his July drop makes me want to dribble a little, and err, stroke the screen.
Here is how July at Mint Velvet is shaping up:
