I know it’s already been reported everywhere about how Luella has had to stop trading so I thought now would be a good time to pay tribute.
I am a massive Luella fan. I love the way she mixes colours and shapes to create feminine silhouettes. She has an eye for detail with her collections regularly featuring buckles, bows and ribbons. If I had the money then I would have loved to be a Luella Girl.
Just thought I’d share some of my favourite Luella pieces from her Spring/Summer 2010 collection. Especially as the reality is that none of these pieces will probably get made. This collection seemed more grown up and refined than previous ones. Although the Luella fun was still evident with polka dots, small waists and emphasised hips.
I love the styling of the models. Big bows make a nice juxtaposition to the slick hair and bold eye. I’m still dreaming of being a Luella Girl…
