Matchesfashion.com’s new spring drops



Matches new own label RAEY

Gotta love Matchesfashion.com at this time of year. You get the big-ass Matches glossy magazine through the post, plus all the shiny new SS15 deliveries. Among them are a couple of noteworthy new womenswear lines.

I’m excited about Kolor womenswear (the designer of Kolor happens to be Mr Sacai) and Matchesfashion.com’s just-launched own label, RAEY. RAEY is right on target with the clean-lined, boyish silhouettes that have dominated the 2010s, livened up with pops of pink and primrose yellow.

Plus, Matchesfashion.com’s denim focus is spot on for me; ‘forever denim’ in easy boyfriend shapesthrow-on shirting and gently lived-in kimono jackets (thank you MIH Jeans). Shop away below…
