Presenting in a transformed shed in a location outside the main building of Carriageworks, the SS collection from Manning Cartell featured an exciting collection of new fabrics and prints. Above are a snapshot of a few of my favourite looks. In particular, I loved the boxy overcoats with the zip down front shown in peach and off white. If only these pieces came in store for Winter, I can see it working so beautifully with the gloomy weather. You’d be a walking reflector! The cropped tops adorned with jewel fronts were also so beautiful in real life. I also loved the use of sheer mesh for sleeving (if that’s a word at all?) and the sandal heels. Sometimes I’m so drawn into looking at the garments that I forget to notice the shoes. Seeing the SS collection at MBFWA makes me wish I could just skip Winter all together and jump straight into a never-ending loop of Spring then Summer. But don’t we all want that!

      as do i! it’s teasing us that it won’t hit the stores until later this year.

    I completely agree, that white/peach coat is so ridiculously good, not sure I could pick a favourite from the two. Loved this collection!

    I’m weirdly looking forward to winter, scarves and boots and thick chunky knits, heaven!

      i have been in the UK for Winter! – though I have not been there for the snowy days. I was in London and thought it was alright – When I was up, the air was still with no wind, so although it was a lower temp, I didn’t feel like it was cold at all. In Melbs it’s like a constant hurricane, I hate it haha
