We all know if there’s one rule in fashion, what goes around comes around- music to the ears for those of you who are dealing with serious style nostalgia. If anyone gets this rule, it’s Paris based brand Daphnea; Season after season they pull on our fashion heartstrings and bring us styles that remind us of a time gone by, but in a way thats totally of-the-now, and this autumn is no different.
With playful, retro shapes awash with a pumpkin spiced colour palette, new season Daphnea is made for those who are feeling reminiscent, but want to get on board with updated autumnal hues. Old school pinafores have been given the oh-so trendy cord treatment, striped knits evoke a 90s vibe but are kept fashion forward in a opulent chocolate brown (a hue that is going to get you serious fashion points this season) and the skirt suit your mum used to rock has been reimagined for a more off-duty approach making it the ideal match for the hard to ignore dad trainer. It is the combination of ageless shapes, luxe fabrics and a light hearted edge that makes this collection perfect for your autumnal wardrobe update… even if you are taking inspiration from the past.
So this Autumn, let your inner child frolic in fallen leaves, indulge with hot chocolate with cream AND marshmallows and be reminded that as much as we want to play the cool as a cucumber ‘it-girl’, we also want youthful pieces that remind us that fashion doesn’t have to be super serious in order to be taken seriously.
