With winter just knocking at our doors, it was nice to enter Kermadec into the warm showroom housing some of the great pieces from Sheryl May, Loobie’s Story, Canterbury of New Zealand, MENA, Kagi jewellery, Egoist, Ooby Ryn and MisteR. Presented by Blomfield P.R

Kermadec Fine is the new, fine dining area of the Kermadec restaurant and was a perfect location for the days show. Champagne from Moet & Chandon and samples from the Kermadec menu circled the room as guests flicked through racks of clothing, deciding what they want, need, or just plain love – all of the above for me.

With a short speech from Paul Blomfield, the show started and the models worked their way out. One by one witnessing the gorgeous prints summer has to offer. A wonderful show that keeps me optimistic for the season to come.
Sheryl May‘s First Light Caftan has a print that is “reminiscent of goddess like garments”. Inspired by the Pre-Raphaelite movement, the collection is quite romantic with its use of color.
Sheryl May’s Bloom with a View Dress
We loved the colors used in Egoist‘s collection, especially the purple above. A few pieces we really liked were the stylish black jumpsuit, low crotch pants, skinny leg carrot shaped pants and the lemon shorts with the button detailing.
Gorgeous bold prints from MENA‘s collection was a favorite of ours. Beautiful bright colors of yellow, orange, blue and green gave the collection such a vibrant richness.
Loobie’s Story St. Tropez dress comes in a bright coral vibrant print that’s perfect for summer.
We love the work done by MisteR, the playful use of color and quality cut pieces. The exciting mix of prints with a twist on a classic MisteR silhouette is exactly what I’m going to need when the sun decides to show it’s beautiful face again. Their collection was inspired by the movie “Footloose” and it definitely did have that fun vibe with the use of pop bright colors mixed with a classic color base.
We couldn’t stop admiring Mickey Lin’s (one-half of MisteR) adorable cross-over. Definitely a must have for this summer!
If someone would send me these shorts in my size that’d be great. Thanks.
Overall the use of prints in all the pieces was excellent and is an awesome way to end and start the year. So fear not, because after the long wait through the dark and damp winter a bright and bubbly season lies ahead and you’re going to want to join in.
