I received a newsletter from Whistles last week and ended up browsing the site for ages. Under Jane Shepherdson’s (formerly miracle worker at TopShop) direction it has become a brand that I love. The clothes are well made in quality fabrics with an eye for good wearable design. AW 2012 is no exception with gorgeous party dresses and lots of Christmas pressie ideas in the form of their collaboration with Markus Lupfer.
I particularly fell in love with a LOT of the tops they have in the collection. Cashmere, silk, wool and embellishment all feature heavily, and unlike the sparse cheap paillettes a lot of other high street stores use, these tops are thickly sequined and shimmer gorgeously. I particularly love the black silk and nude sequin t-shirt below – very sport luxe which is always an enduring favourite trend of mine.
Unfortunately I can’t link to individual pieces due to Whistles’ strange use of URLs but all the tops in their AW 2012 collection can be bought here at their online store which delivers to Ireland.
