A theme of balance permeates SS16 through a medley of apparent contrasts and a bolder energy for Chinti & Parker. Polka Dots and Bows are key stories of the season, with bows showing up in a whimsical print on cotton and on the backs of sweaters. The colour palette relaxes as it excites, spanning a calming smoothie pink, serene baby blue, a vivacious red and soft ink blue. Oversized boyfriend ts provide attering roomy sweaters with ‘you’ll-live-in-this’ appeal. Thanks to a variety of ts, silhouettes can be played with endlessly, while Liberty prints and rain macs created in collaboration with Gloverall bring a distinctly British element. As our styles and personalities shift, the girlie, the gamine and everyone in between can mix it up and nd expression for who they want to be that season.
