'Babooshka' is Alice McCall's upcoming summer 2012/2013 collection, full of beautiful colours, floral prints, sheer fabrics, layers and layers, jumpsuits, party dresses and the most magnificent baby blue leather shorts. I can't wait to get my hands all over this collection! It is summer perfection all in a cute bright orange, lace panelled jumpsuit.
It is a truly enchanting collection, and decidedly Russian, with pops of white, tangerine, powder blue, pale pink, nude and red. Reinvention season after season is McCall’s trick and she has worked her magic with needlepoint floral motifs scattered through romantic cotton voile lace (complete with miniature applique buds) and fitted silhouettes to make even the hardest of fashionistas blush.
This collection had brains: stiff scalloped edging, nifty sheer under-skirts and over-layers, architectural and floral digital prints and neon pops ensured it appealed to Alice’s loyal fan club. Sheers, graphic cut-outs, leather, crop pants and tops were intertwined with headscarves, crystal drop earrings and powder blue pointy-toe pumps. Divine. Get in my wardrobe... Please?!
