Alessia Prekop | Designer Spotlight

Italian born designer Alessia Prekop Spring/Summer 15 collection enraptures with fairy-tales of hazy summer days and intergalactic adventure. Dresses and separates are treated to pale pink and green watercolour hues, drenched over shimmering silky fabrics and accented by deeper shades.

The fur collar trench is stand out piece. Swirls of pastel colour combine with lace overlay and black fur, offering a style defining twist to a wardrobe staple.

Returning to London to showcase her SS15 collection in the showrooms at Somerset House, Alessia Prekop’s offering is wildly feminine, lustrous and bold. Asymmetric lines create flirtatious shapes for skirts and dresses evoking iconic 70s style.

Perfectly balanced ­– rebellious Psychedelia meets powered pink, an A-line is tempered by sharp straight lines that follow the body, and references to eras past meet futuristic statements.  A case in point is the Kimono sleeve jacket that combines structured sleeves with the seasons signature print. Wrap it over your shoulders for an elegant highlight to a summer dress or pair with the flattering tulip panel mini.
