ss10 trend report: Oasis

The SS10 press days are in full swing! I wasn’t partaking last week as I was fully engaged in a week-long project but I just managed to catch the end of the Oasis press day on Thursday evening. Oasis always put on a good show and this time we had hair make-overs from Charlie le Mindu, manicures by Butter LONDON and even a pop-up art bookshop. But the main event was the Oasis SS10 collection. My verdict? It’s all about the seventies…

Maxi tea dresses

Petal prints

Tromp l’oeil and graphic monochrome – this is part of Oasis’ Designer Collective range. The tromp l’oeil pieces are designed by BA Hons Design student Rosalind Keep.

New suede shoes

Sequins n studs

Easy Rider meets Woodstock – love the suede tunic

Book of charms by designer Vanessa Harrington is a beautiful idea, a hollowed-out book with a necklace and a choice of charms that would make a super-special gift. Selling price isn’t confirmed yet but the figure they gave me was unbelievably keen! (Double click for a closer look.)

Perfect workwear: the 7/8th trouser suit

I spy a spots versus Breton-stripes face-off

J’adore this African-inspired abstract animal print that comes in different clashy colourways.
