AUTUMN WINTER COLLECTION 2012

La Petite S***** Celebrates More Than 10 Years in Business

 Having navigated our way through a decade of eyebrow raising trends, bewildering financial roller coasters and a climate that leaves us perplexed, La Petite S has established its self as a rock of consistency in a world that leaves us in a spin.

AW/12 collection is no exception and all devotees of the brand can heave a sigh of relief that once again designer Nicola Helgesen has delivered a collection of timeless style.

 Now we are feeling cosy, wrapped in our duvet of love we are inexplicably jolted out of our comfort zone by a colour pallet laced with beams of vivid lime and splashes of vibrant fuchsia that jettison us into a colour block stratosphere; but wait…. classic tones of oatmeal, charcoal and black guide us gently back down to earth.

Having found serenity in our favourite brand we still have to cope with ever increasing demands on our time and a day to evening schedule that requires an effortlessly sophisticated wardrobe. This season’s Italian stretch wool definitely ticks that box.

From the sleek little black dress to our perennial favourite the skinny skirt every pleat and dart is uniquely considered to compliment real women.

True to the brands signature style lightweight crepe satin melts to the body with a strong focus on minimal construction, maximum fluidity.

In a perfect marriage of freedom and structure, organic drapery compliments and defines the technical precision of the tailored wool.

The coat of the season is cosy and luxurious with more than a hint of 60’s Avedon glamour, teamed with the mini tassel shift dress you may be rendered incapable of standing still as the urge to twist takes a hold of your senses.

Having completely let yourself go and found a new sense of freedom La Petite S has just taken enriching our lives to a whole new level by making it possible for us to shop the entire range from the luxury and comfort of our homes.

Not only does the newly launched on-line store offer a huge choice of gorgeous must haves but our newfound sense of calm will no longer be shattered by disappointment as its even possible to place a special order if your size is no longer available, genius!

So let stress wash away and allow your self to feel beautiful, elegant and serene in the new La Petite S AW/12 collection

AUTUMN WINTER COLLECTION 2011

 

For AW11 La Petite S***** brings a rich collection combining twisted, looped up garments with sharply pleated tailoring and sensual drape. The full-bodied colour palette incorporates burnt umber, tobacco, putty, bitter chocolate and aubergine, giving dramatic intensity to this seasons new shapes.

Designer, Nicola Helgesen has manifested a sophisticated yet edgy collection which pushes separates and versatile investment pieces in addition to the signature cocktail dresses La Petite S***** is celebrated for. A minimal yet feminine aesthetic has produced pieces which smoothly bridge the gap from day to evening wear.

A truly unique fabric, this season’s Italian stretch wool is lightweight yet moulds and sculpts the body in tailored body con dresses and separates. The sharpness of the tailoring translates into cubist sleeves and signature pleats which have each been individually considered to flatter and fashion the female form.

Inspired by 70’s glamour, the glossy fluid jersey in camel, chocolate, aubergine and burnt umber is sensuously draped and twisted.  A series of minimalist dresses with gathered waists, plunging cowl necklines and draped sleeves form the core of this effortlessly seductive group. Sweeping hemlines and skinny neck ties elongate the silhouette and continue the theme through into the crushed satin group.

The hammered mohair and crushed satin offer the deconstructed counterpart to the tailoring. These luxurious fabrics with a textured finish, drape and twist into easy to wear looped up styles, cinched in at the waist with skinny leather belts in glossy bitter chocolate.

Antique stretch lace in mercury and bronze brings a youthful, accessible gloss in the form of pleated cocktail dresses and separates. Stretchy Italian silk woven with metal is cut into super skinny skirts and dresses which ripple over the body.

The AW11 collection offers something for every modern woman from directional lightweight tailoring to playful twisted drape in an intense colour palette which is quintessential La Petite S*****
