Ever since Whistles first showed at London Fashion Week they've become the brand that just keeps on giving. Lilac compact mirrors, with backwards writing that could be read on reflection, arrived to invitees and were subsequently all over Instagram, hinting at what was to come to those not fortunate to receive an invite and creating a somewhat of a stir around the presentation.
Forget any feeling in your toes because pool slides aren't going anywhere for AW14; the Whistle's variety come wrapped in bondage lilac fabric, poking from underneath similarly lilac palazzo pants or paired with the softest of longline fur jackets.
Where the endearing lilac ended, muted tones of grey began. Bulky knitted jumpers featured high round necks and hung over loosely fitting calf length skirts. Evening wear came predominately in black; sultry deep V necklines crafted into the most elegant of pieces.
Whistles have the high-street meets high fashion thing spot on for next season; this collection can't hit the rails soon enough.
