Des Petits Hauts – Spring Neutrals

As I stare at the frosted roses outside Feather & Stitch HQ this morning the light dusting of ice has me reflecting on the coming season’s neutral hues. Outside looks soft and the leaves glisten in the sunlight; it has me wanting to cast off my layers of winter knit like an alpaca being fleeced of it’s coat. In short, I long for spring. This desire is not helped by the arrival of new samples from our Des Petits Hauts SS15 collection. They’re hanging on a rail a short distance from my desk and the colours are a breath of fresh air in the office.

The mood for this collection is light, feminine and well, sweet. The subtle shades bring to mind spring blossom, summer meadows and sandy beaches, which on this cold and frosty morning we are all longing for. Come high summer the blouses and t-shirts will be worn as separates but I can’t wait that long. I need to wear them now, so I’m going to layer them.

For me one of the stand out pieces of the Des Petits Hauts collection is the Ariane cardigan in ecru. It’s 100% cotton with a single golden lurex thread woven through the material, the thread glints when it catches the light. A simple, elegant cardi like this can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. For a day running errands I’m going to wear it with the Figue v-neck t-shirt in grey, a pair of our washed grey DL1961 Florence jeans, ankle boots and the Woopy scarf for extra warmth. For a night out I’ll switch the t-shirt for the Ondela blouse (I love the demi-sheer quality of this top coupled with the drops of colour) and a pair of heeled strappy sandals. If you prefer a longer length cardigan, the powder pink Albina cardi pairs beautifully with the Neve blouse as it highlights the rose gold thread running vertically through the material.

The Creon cardi with its navy polka dot detail is a fabulous addition to your wardrobe and is  already a favourite at Feather & Stitch HQ. We’ll be wearing it with the lightly striped Gaspard T-shirt and the delicate Melodie blouse.
