Charming Miss Juliette

Friday, August 13, 2010

Today is one of my favourite days of the new season so far as Juliette Hogan's latest collection arrived in her Ponsonby store this morning.  I absolutely adore Juliette's designs and have been a big fan of hers since I first came across her label a few years ago.  'Textbook Beautiful' is the name of her new collection and from the looks of it, it is once again inspired by the bookish beauty of her favourite librarian muse.

Using a feminine colour palette of pretty pinks, blues and lilacs mixed with neutrals ivory, grey and black, Juliette has created a gorgeous collection of romantic dresses, sweet little tops and stunning skirts.  I'm so pleased that she has again produced capes this season, the lighter spring version (see above) would be perfect for putting over your shoulders on the way to work or on a cool evening out.  Juliette's clothes are elegant, sophisticated and simply beautiful, exactly the kind of collection that my blog is named for.

I had such a hard time choosing photos to put on my blog as I just love all of this collection and the fact that Juliette has once again used one of my favourite models Derya Parlak (the dark brunette) in her lookbook is brilliant.  One of my favourite garments is the blue Bow Back dress (below) which is such a simple but feminine dress and has a gorgeous bow tied mid-back.  Another of my favourites is the Half Pleat skirt (bottom photo) which is the most beautiful girly lilac and pink print.

I also loved the cute glasses used in the styling of the lookbook and that Juliette has again done her exquisite long pleated skirts from a couple of seasons ago.  The coral was my absolute favourite and it sold out quick smart, I was lucky enough to snap one up in Blenheim of all places on my travels earlier in the year, and it is one of the most treasured pieces in my wardrobe.  Juliette truly is one of the most talented young designers we have in New Zealand and I really can't wait to see what she has instore for her next show at NZFW in a few weeks.  In the meantime I want every single piece of this sublime collection, time for my credit card to get a good workout.
