Preen and Woolf
I love it when fashion and literature come together! This season Preen was inspired by literary icon and (in my opinion) genius Virginia Woolf.
With pastels and 'pixelated' prints the Preen s/s 2012 collection was creatively bold yet not overly loud, and all in all elucidated that mid 20th century, glamorised elegance and classist sophistication that Woolf revelled in but also criticised in her work.
The pastels added a lightness and a freshness to the overall collection making what could have been a serious portrayal of Virginia, fun and modern.
