An Essentiel Spring 2014

Possibly some of the best shopping-related news this year, my favourite Belgian-born brand Essentiel now delivers worldwide, yes, even to the bottom of the earth here in South Africa. I love this label for their playful tweaking of runway trends and modern interpretation of classic silhouettes. Every piece has been designed with wearability in mind - not just for the trend-obsessed but for anyone looking for a chic day-to-night, office-to-outerwear look.

This Spring, Essentiel colours our closets in paradise pink, sunrise orange, cream blush and minted green. Leopard prints and unpretentious abstracts pave the patterned component of this collection with overcoats, skater skirts, leisurely-fit pants and flaired-out tops. An endless range of elegant shift dresses can be recharged for an afterwork affair by swapping flats for heels, adding some bling and a colourfully beaded clutch. These statement accessories are also part of the label's repertoire. Essential doesn't present us with just any ordinary sweater, each one is given the intricate eye with rhinestones, studded and sequined detailing.

I feel a shopping surge coming on, with this glance into Essentiel's Spring 2014 collection.

I love it! So glad I clicked on your comment on FASHIONVIBE and got led back here to yours. It's seriously full of GREAT info and juicy pics here! Just followed you on GFC and bloglovin', be sure to see more of you soon. By the way, I just posted my new layering (step-by-step) post on how to style some old CÉLINE floral trousers and make them new new again. Check it out to see how many layers does it take to get to the juicy center haha!

Fashion-Bridge said...

Beautiful collection. A little bit girly, a little bit American preppy. I especially like pieces with prints - so fresh, bright, stylish!




Pooja Mittal said...

So happy to know that they are shipping worldwide..
My fav's are set 1 & 7
Keep in touch

Valeria said...

I like the colors and the prints of these nice selections. Set 1 and 3 are my favorites.


Emilie said...

Wauw Sam this is a surprise! I don't know if you know this, but I'm actually from Belgium and here we have an Essentiel at every city haha :) It's one of my favourite places to shop - and it's probably where one fifth of my closet is from (that's a lot, I know). I love their style (not the over the top print stuff though) and I shopped at them already for this Spring but none of the things I bought you show here haha - except the tshirt with the E but in another colour (of course I had to have that one :p). But now I'm reaaaally curious for you to tell me how you discovered them? Because I had no idea they were marketing their brand overseas? (they are also in France and the Netherlands). xxxx

Demi Mist said...

I think sets 4 and 7 are closer to what I wear.
Nice collection!
Have a great day!

trishie said...

Oh tough choice but I'm thinking set 1 looks pretty awesome.

Ali Hval said...

Eeep! I can't even pick a favorite set, though I'm really enjoying the soft pastels against darker values here. That pastel pink is very cotton-candy-esque and pretty, as is the mint that shows up in set four! Your descrptions are on par, too, Sam!

Thanks for all your sweet comments lately. I'm finally getting back in the zone and commenting on blogs again. :) Have a great week!

Beautiful post! I love sets 1, 3, 4 and 5. Seriously, I'd take them all! Gorgeous style inspiration Sam.

Peet said...

I like 1 too! And 4 and 5. And 6's got some awesome prints. I basically want a little bit of everything from every set. Does that make me greedy??:D Anyhow, I think it's really interesting/funny how you said you're at the bottom of the world, I always think I'm at the bottom of everything - I'm sure there are actual Slovenians who can't show Slovenia on the map it's so ... At the bottom of everything basically.:)

I hope you're off to a great week, doll!!
