I promised I'd be back with more from the Monsoon - Accessorize headquarters in London so here I am with the pictures from the Spring - Summer 2012 collection. Speaking of the headquarters (the "Yellow Building" as it is called) I'm afraid that I can't even describe how cool that place is. I'll just say that the first thing I saw when I entered the building was a huge Carousel! Anyway, here is a quick description of the SS lines:
Arizona (the evolution of last summer's Phoenix) is all about the cool global traveller style. Slouchy bags, tribal influences, gold jewelry, silk scarves, traditional Aztec and Navajo beading on the cuffs, accessories with coins are my favorites from the collection.
Coquette: This collection is all about statement accessories, bold and fun colors, cute prints (polka dots, stars, Flamingos, fruits), plastic accessories, girly hats and retro shades.
Tiki: Ethnic meets Street slick and the outcome is sophisticated and every-day perfect.
Bonbon: Girly and cute, the Bonbon collection is the epitome of retro, kind of 60's chic but with Japanese twists. Needless to say I fell for the backpack with the bird print and the box clutches (not pictured here).
Beach Belles: Inspired by the 60's and the 70's next season's beachwear is vibrant and fun to wear.
