Inviting us into a romantic setting, floral prints and lightweight cotton fabrics, symbolise the innocent nature of a British summer’s day, replicating the smell of fresh blooms, tickle of a gentle breeze and soft haze of the sun.
Inspired by British 1960’s style, Isabel Mann’s utilises the energy of vivacious corals and rich turquoise shades, uniting the opulent colour palette with flattering silhouettes and a mellow range of dusty pastels, each complimenting the retro, feminine aesthetic of Mann’s SS20 collection.
Each piece presenting a distinctive visual to the eye, softer pastel dresses offer a sense of serenity to the wearer, contributing a grace and tranquillity to the garment when fused with the gentle movement of cotton. Bolder colours of scorching reds and indigo develop an intense depth to the collection, each piece reversable and rich in pure British design.
Vivid florals and abstract brushstroke prints feature throughout the collection, drawn from the artwork of the designer herself. Mann’s designs showcase a level of flexibility, formed to fit any individual, breathable cottons and refined silk satins create a movement and aesthetic fit for both day and evening wear.
One of the most captivating pieces from the collection, a striking contrast of rich blue and vibrant coral. The satin top integrating red rope detailing across the straps, a stunning element of ingenuity, showcased a complex floral print of rich blues. Paired with layered trousers, vibrant coral blooms scatter the fabric, uniting the blue print on the undersection of each layer. Tying the abstract look together, a blue satin headscarf. Each element within the ensemble was flawlessly coordinated, providing an intense and alluring final aesthetic.
