You might need to erect pretty high spools or look into performing a super impressive stain-trapeze for this one; Ted Baker is at it again. Just when I think I might steadily be in tune with grasping the luxe brand’s mastermind, I get shocked into newity. As I back-sag somersaulted into exploring the recently launched range from the fashion house’s Spring-Summer 2014 collection, I am pleasantly stunned by the fresh and oh-so equilibrate direction.
Fresh in a sense that a Ted Baker woman continues to appreciate traditional spring prints, only with much welcome twists and updates. Alongside the immortalised ‘Rose on Canvas’ and the fluidity of a ‘Symmetrical Orchid’ signature floral, this season sees strength aplenty through sharp tailoring and a silhouette that strongly places femininity beyond a point of questioning.
The same approach reigned in distinguished measures for menswear. Stretching a gentleman-like flamboyancy to a controllable degree, Ted’s man is set to convey personality in the truest sense of the word –or act, in this regard. There a refined level of dandyism in the overall shape and that is skilfully matched with an inclusion of a rather wide print palette, bordering mood lifting checks, spots, striped and geo.
The rest of the collection could possibly best be described as a melange-act because even though it is season specific, it caters to an assortment of tastes. And to surpass the showmanship theme of the campaign, some of these pieces have just skyrocketed atop my list of Must-Haves, as soon as the looming winter wraps. To keep the optimism, hop on a teeterboard and check these pics below.
