Once upon a summer's day
Maybe it's because we're partial to a period drama. Maybe it's because we're won over by immaculate quality and detail. Either way we have a certain affinity with Colenimo's "fictionalised take on the wardrobe a traditional country lady". This time designer Aya has captured our nostalgic hearts with 'Little Miss Poker Face' - a collection straight out of 1920s England inspired by tennis player Helen Wills Moody. We're casting ourselves as leading lady. Costume is simple cotton sun dresses, full pleated skirts, traditional shirting and silk sailor collars. Scene is a grassy riverbank for picnicking and punting. Act is misty eyed and utterly romantic.
