Every time I check my e-mail in the afternoon, I find a newsletter from my favorite shop, some news from another and occasionally, a new collection brought up from some of the best designers. I adore surfing their look books, imagining how I would wear and pair them. This morning, one of these not so rare events happened: I got a little announcement about Simona Semen's first Pre-fall collection. Since many of you know how much I love her creations ( you can see last year's fall collection here), this one came just perfectly, as it is one of my favorite so far!
I adored ( and currently adore) the peplum trend, but Simona's creations are as structured as they are fluid and romantic. They are made with carefully controlled volume, textured insertions and extremely interesting fabric mix and matching. The patterns she used are so urban chic and also luxurious.
My favorite piece so far is the blouse/skirt. I love how the lower part of the top is a little bit peplum-like, but the many layers make it look like a flower in spring. I cannot wait to see it in her online store! Maybe it will be my first designer investment!
