Girly girls rejoice – Spring has arrived, and this time she’s riding a fairy-floss chariot and scattering a trail of sugar dust in her wake. From diaphanous pale violets at Richard Nicoll, to structured lemon souffle at Giambattista Valli, to a rainbow of pastel princesses at Elie Saab, saccharine-sweet is one of the key themes of the Spring 2012 runways. Off the runway, this trend translates perfectly to prim and preppy, such as this dress from Preen Line, or Christopher Kane’s metallic jacquard tees. If you’re more inclined towards biker than barbie however, keep this trend to accents only, with the divine Dieppa Restrepo patent leather seafoam Dina oxfords available here, or Ellery et Graz Quixote Catseye sunglasses in tongue-tingling shades of Batter, Fairyfloss, and Listerine. And for more inspiration on transforming edible to wearable, check out the amazing WARDROBE v PANTRY blog. Délicieux!
