As I wake up to rain tapping on my bedroom window reminding me to hurry its time for school ( the school run) I wish now more than ever that it was spring summer 2014 captured by the soft tailored collection of the Hobbs SS14 preview. Ruled by textures, classic lines and pretty pastels, the collection of midi skirts, dresses, and statement coats were interspersed with bold injections of Jacquard, royal blue, tangerines and punches of leather. The shoes and accessories were perfectly formed, contrast was brought to the design combining pretty studs to the front of brogues, and metallic tips. The entire collection from Hobbs and N.W.3 wasn’t necessarily ground breaking, I would describe the collection as safe and unassuming, but classicly lovely nonetheless. It seems the brand are always striving to have the ‘forever pieces’ so I doubt any time soon that you will be that editorial piece that sets the fashion world alight, more like the shopping edits that customers will want to actually buy .
