Rare press day SS11

The main collection by Rare is so cute and girly with so, so much to covet. I loved the gorgeous floral prints, the pleating details and the cute nautical inspired pieces. The collection was heavily influenced by the 60s, with cute pleated minis, bell sleeve tunics, broderie anglais, florals, flowing chiffon and super cute peter pan collars. The flirty, romantic colours and fabrics were so light and perfect for summer. 

The Opulence range is one of my favourites, I’ve got so many dresses from past collections and love the little signatures that run through each collection, especially the gorgeous Grecian draping, embellishment, ruffled textures and beautiful silhouettes. 

Everyone at Rare was so lovely, especially Deepa who showed me around everything, talked me through her favourite pieces and also held out about a billion items for me to photograph. Thank you!

    Usually I avoid Rare because of the sheerness of the fabrics, but this time I think they have it just right.. picture 14 is my favourite, I love the neckline…www.styleonthecouch.wordpress.comwww.twitter.com/styleonthecouch
