Spot the Difference

They say imitation is the sincerest from of flattery and if that's true then young British designers should be feeling some serious love round about now.

Last time I did an outfit post I promised to bring you the best of the catwalk at High Street prices and I wasn't bragging as this season its easier than ever to find the looks you coveted on the runway transformed into wearable, affordable pieces that will slot easily into your summer wardrobe.

I'm going to start with River Island as my first example as this is where I first really sat up and took notice of the ongoing love affair with young Brit designers. Their take on House of Holland is summery, fresh and above all else a walk on the wild side with its mix of pastel dip dye over sized leopard prints, faded denim and snakeskin.

I'll then aim to bring you a different designer each day this week - followed by their High Street equivalent.

Happy Shopping!

Spot the Difference #1

The House of Holland S/S 12 Collection clashed oversize pastel leopard prints with snakeskin booties, collars and braces. Dip Dyes, colour contrast panels, sheer fabrications and a splattering of metallics added interest whilst bleached denim, again in pastel tones, finished off the look which has been re-worked by River Island.

Skirt, £30, Shoes, £55, Jeans, £34.99, Shorts, £30, Top, £15 - All available from River Island.
