Warmer weather is almost here, and with it, a season of bright, bold colours quickly arriving on hangers and shelves.
On good form and in good time, accessories label Deadly Ponies have just dropped their Spring15 Collection.
Entitled ‘Decadant’, Designer Liam Bowden takes inspiration for his palette from that of 1960’s photographer Franco Fontana, an artist renowned for vivid abstract coloured landscapes. So what you’ll find is a luscious collection of leather accessories in a mix of Forest, Amber, Mist and Klein Blue.
Deadly Ponies have continued to produce tasteful and covetable collections that have grown from strength to strength each season. This collection introduces new shapes, along with Deadly Ponies classics, and a play on some of the Bowden’s favourite designs from a finely built ten-year heritage.
Having spent the winter months deliberating on—and lusting after—the Deadly Ponies AW15 collection, whereby I spent far too long with indecision over whether I’d go for a winter-white, blush or maroon handbag, I ended up missing the boat altogether!
This time I have my eye on Mr Robin in Amber (stealthy-sized arm candy) which I add here, sold out in that aforementioned colour before I even had time to say, ‘I want that bag.’ But Mr Mini Chain Mail also has plenty of appeal and reminds me of a puppy dog on a leash. It’s compact size could ease my ‘bag-lady’ woes (I’m always carrying far too much).
Amber is my favourite from the Decadant palette: it’s not mustard, yet not crazy bright yellow. It could make a brilliant companion to the excessive amount of navy blue in my wardrobe, but would work equally well against black and will definitely pop against other colours.
Forest is a deep rich green, adding unique luxe-appeal to an all-black outfit—or pair it with white for a fresh contrast. Klein blue is a cobalt jewel blue that will add a youthful spring to your step and make leaving the house (even on rainy days) feel all the brighter. But if subtle is more your thing, you should definitely check out Mr Robin in Mist.The divine style features a stunning rose gold zip which offsets the light grey beautifully.
Yes, I’m in love… all over again!
