Now you must have been living under a rock to have missed People Tree's fabulous collaboration with Emma Watson. Well now they've done it again. But this collaboration is even more fabulous.
People Tree have collaborated with amazing designer Orla Kiely for their 2nd collection together. The designer is well known for her stunning prints and out of this world accessories.
The collections colour palette features neutrals, corals & navy blue. So it is ideal for Spring\Summer. The range has a distinct retro feel with many pieces being 50s inspired. Button up bell style skirts, sleeveless alpine print dresses with belts at the waist, jersey dresses made with 100% organic cotton that is fairtrade certified.
I saw this collection in person on Thursday and instantly fell in love. I adore the garments silhouettes, the monochrome and coral palette and above all the femininity that is inherent in the collection.
Now you all probably know that People Tree is an ethical fashion brand. Ethical brands have a special place in my heart. People Tree's SS12 collection supports 4000 farmers and artisans from some of the world's poorest countries. They promote and use organic and handmade materials.
I'm really glad to see more designers embracing ethically made clothing and it is a real coup for People Tree to get a top designer like Orla Kiely involved with the brand.
The collection launches February 2012.
