Luella Loving…

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.

These are the most perfect, flirty summer dresses. I especially love the cut out, heart shaped neckline on the first one and of course the floral prints…

These dresses are amazing. Completely over the top but they represent the fun element and the youthfulness of the brand…

Polka dots were everywhere, ranging from the bubble skirt to the more streamlined shorts…

And finally for the more refined…

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…

    I'm not the biggest Luella fan, but it is sad. There seems to be a lot of fans out there – so I'm sure she'll be fine.
