Up front this season is Alpha Studio. This modem and affordable Italian designer wear collection is an absolute favourite. Fabrics are fresh and natural and the compilations, exiting and different. Mince caramel with geranium, geo prints and stripes, summery leaf prints with plains.

The Lauren Vidal from Paris is as pretty as ever. Breezy soft and sensual separates in bronze and spice and of course the sexy leg wear. Pennyblack is strong on statement knitwear this season. The stand alone quirky intarsia pieces, some fringed and fabulous, are stunning in orange, cream and navy.

The Spring Annette Görtz is here and full of originality and attitude. The garments individually are sought after and just one piece can wake up a wardrobe. Personality attire at its best.

D’Exterior is our ultimate in Italian chic. Flattering silhouettes abound in the tricot work wear and the occasion wear is gorgeous; the sublimely feminine silk chiffon skirts the stuff of dreams!
