The Basso and Brooke pre collection for SS10 made me feel a real sense of excitement. I love the day dreamy, rainbow cloudy colours. The white background tones them down to just the right level that they look gorgeously colourful but still in a highly wearable way. The tailoring and fitted dresses kept them from looking too airey fairey but they have a great fun feel. There is almost something very familiar and comforting about these clothes. Perhaps it is because they remind me of My Little Ponies, Care Bears and Rainbow Bright, some of my favourite childhood toys, but there is definitely nothing childish about these clothes.
I just have to have something from this collection (or pre collection) and I can't wait to see ehat comes next from Basso and Brooke.
