Nostalgic Biba

In 2006, much to our delight, Biba relaunched at London Fashion Week. The new label has a modern look but still holds onto the bold and innovative design that was it signature back in the days. Biba is distinctly British and manages to combine the legendary rock and roll spirit of its heyday with present day style.

I love the Spring summer 08 Biba collection featuring rich prints and luxurious fabrics. Although I am too young to remember Biba the first time round this look is reminiscent of clothes my mother used to wear when I was a child. The attention to detail on the garments make them really special with smocking, pintucking and pleating creating subtle but interesting texture and shape. The new fresh faced Biba has really topped off the Spring Summer collection with gorgeous accessories like the patent, canvas and kid leather pumps, brightly coloured shoes with striped stack heels and ethically inspired big gold buckles. The collection is nostalgic, charming and quite irresistible. Here are some of my favourites:
I really love this look. A great pair of crisp tailored shorts with a lovely frothy blouse.

This is just a classic shift dress but a really happy and bright print.

This is a really cute look. The white shoes and black and white hat give it a sense of fun.

This maxi dress and cardi combination is great for this years boho chic look- really relaxed and chilled out.

This is another great version of the frilly white blouse, this time dresses down with a denim skirt and sports shoes.
