I apologize if this is crap because I am typing this in bed feeling like such shit because some bitch gave me the could! But enough about my personal life and more about preens SS2013 collection! This was my first early rise collection 9am on a sunday morning, a time I usually hold sacred for sleeping in(omg i just cant stop talking bout moi!!!) so I did the early sunday wake just so I wouldn't mess this collection which I knew would obvi be to major to even ponder missing! The question is was it worth it, omg is it just me or does this waking up early on a sunday sound like I sacrifieced my puppy or somthin I mean im up at 6.30 every other why am I being such a drama queen about this!! So I guess the question isnt was it worth it the fact is there is no question I think??? Well if there was then this would be the answer??? Ok im offically making no sense! WHY DO I NOT STOP TYPING???
So back to the serious issue at hand preens collection! This was there london debt and they did it in style showing at the very visually pleasing and quite epic looking museum of natural history, it was a one sided front row the other side was major wall and on top of all that they came down stairs so major! Though sadly non fell :(
As usual at preen the clothes were made up of striking minimal tailoring and most importantly PRINT! 
This season we went au natural on the prints and went for beautiful luxeriois pythin in many variations appearing in differnt colors and tetures, then there were the stunning florals which were detailed esthetically pleasing and so pretty! The silhouettes were sharp cool and at times a little relaxed and free, we are seeing this mix of soft and strong tailoring all over the catwalks this season its more about a tailored shirt than a tailored jacket or pant which is what we saw here! This season at preen it was as always omg im in love!!! with a  natural vibe at the natural history museum it also had been keeping just about every trend we have seen so far alive lace,leather,sheer,soft/hard tailoring,whites,some prints etc so an all round stunning collection very very on trend,very cool and most of all a major....pretty moment :D
 
 
I listened to Madonnas "Vogue" while i watched one of my favorite resort collections so far, the Preen resort look book looked like a vogue editorial shot the poses were beautiful and naturally cherographed beautifully with the music it gave the fab clothes a power full effect i call it "MINIMALPRINT" there was a dramatic fab contrast with minimalism,power and these beautiful floral prints. The collection had a graphic and memorable look that left me quite breathless even for a resort collection though I actually  did prefer this to there fall collection ( Preen ) i just thought "the  look" was more chic,cool and graphic and of course very wearable. 
The collection had great wearable versatility there were work,evening and casual looks all in one fab rounded collection.
 Lets talk floral print it was simply stunning had a feminine delight though graphic artist image. My favorite look from the collection was a minimalist sleeveless silhouette dress but had such a rich and vibrant floral that was stunning and beutifully for that bright spring day it was also very arty with the dripping paint effect making you feel like your wearing art, that dress could be the prefect bold statement look by michelle obama or the simple look work for that fab fashionista! 
The striking tailoring was very effective that sleek black suit was a very vogue moment minimalist with the cool midriff slightly oversized great editorial image and broken down great working pants, cool black and white oversized jacket and a very cute midriff bra top prefect for cool girl sleek chic look! 
There was an elegant poise to the collection striking yet subdued contrast yet cohesion chic in that cool powerful way and very editorial yet prefect wearable professional looks.

Preens fall collection was very clean and sharp it had a freeness and a precision to it. The show opened with very clean white dresses with a small orange strip that was very minimalist and created a very sharp image but some dresses had a very rich and vibrant floral that gave the look more life!!! There were great color and print blocked dresses that were very modern in there clean and simpleness, simple but effective. the main color palette was a clean whit, a minuet orange and a earthy green also there were butterfly and floral prints which made for a very modern and nature inspired image. Think midsummer nights dream meets Japanese precision thats the vibe i was getting also a very eco feel was present. there were more really fab blocked dress and also lively floral print dresses and skirts that made for a very colorful and minimalist collection.
