A stylish yet classic trend, florals have made their presence felt on many of Monnalisa’s AW13 pieces. In playful, pretty style beautiful blooms adorn everything from dresses in print form, to textural corsage detail on the front of coats. And, as a novel take on this trend, one of our prized pieces; The Leopard Print Velour Dress subtly mixes a floral pattern with classic animal print resulting in one stylish floral fusion.
Your little girl will be able to add cute, animated character design into her off-duty wardrobe thanks to the range of pieces which are emblazoned with Mickey Mouse motifs. This famous and friendly mouse is sure to impress whether he’s knitted onto the chest of a jumper or rendered in shining diamantes on the front of a tunic.
If there’s one hue cue that your little one can take from Monnalisa’s AW13 offering it’s most certainly to think pink. Whether it’s a barely-there shade of pale pink or a rich shade of hot fuchsia pink, there’s sure to be a colour which takes her fancy. And while there’s a multitude of textural style in the collection, we’re most taken with the use of shimmering sequins which are sure to add a touch of sparkle to her look whether she’s at a special occasion or on-the-go.
