Sara Shimasue

I have come across an absolutely beautiful collection by a designer called Sara Shimasue The collection is titled 'Hundreds and Thousands' automatically caught my eye as the name is so summery and fun. The clothing is beautiful in every single way, the colour palette is pale neutral and just perfect for this season. The shapes are wearable, structured and very feminine. The origami like pleats remind me of an ice cream which I think is such a lovely concept for a summer collection. My favourite piece has to be the baby pale blue pleated dress, I would love that sitting in my wardrobe, would be perfect for a wedding or  just an evening out! I really think Sara Shimasue is one to watch in the future! I have been in contact with Sara and was really interested in her inspiration behind the collection, this was her response;

The theme for the collection was very much inspired by a surreal dream I had. 
In it I was a rosy-cheeked little girl skipping through a wild flower field on my way to a summer fair. Without warning the birds fell silent, the sky somehow shifted and a beautiful crystal fell from the fluffy clouds and into my arms. As the sun reappeared and the birds began to tweet again I thought nothing of it, I just put the crystal in my pinafore pocket and happily continued on my way. But as I reached the fair the light had changed and everything seemed brighter, distorted and strangely magical...
