{Not} Over The Rainbow

I don’t think I’ll ever get over my obsession with bright colours. It has now hit new heights with the profusion of rainbow-hued clothes currently gracing our screens and shop windows. To celebrate, here is my edit of favourite pieces (click on pic for link):

Under £150

(A few of the items in this post are currently on sale or on The Outnet so they may not be around for long.)


I love the Edie Parker x Goo.ey iPhone case (although it’s not glittery, as it looks in the pic). Apart from the great colours it also sticks to glass & some other surfaces which is surprisingly useful if you want a handsfree photo or FaceTime call for example.


This Etre Cecile sweatshirt automatically puts a smile on my face (I sized up one) and the gorgeous Sara Battaglia bucket bag is still on sale at Net-A-Porter here.

Summer is a great time to introduce colour to your wardrobe, even if you usually shy away from it. There are some great colourful bags and earrings around if you can’t quite bring yourself to wear it head-to-toe.


Under £300

I’m still in love with the Loewe elephants. Not that I’ve ever used a coin purse in my life – but suddenly I feel like I need one!

Of course there are several designers known for their love of colour and print, so a post like this would not be complete without some DvF and Mary Katrantzou items. I am also seriously salivating over the latter’s IG account (the colours and sequins in her Resort ’18 collection are insane).

Under £500

Gucci and Missoni are also wizards with colour. I realise these rainbow trainers featured in my last fashion post, but they are just so amazing I couldn’t NOT mention them again.


For me they are worth the price as they bring me a ridiculous amount of joy. Sad but true!

I also keep ruminating over this gorgeous Chinti and Parker British weather-inspired cashmere jumper as I think it’s so fun. I do feel strongly that everyone should have a few fun things in their wardrobes: some days it’s surprising how they can turn your mood around (and other people’s for that matter).

Practically everything on my ‘dream wish list’ is by Gucci at the moment. Alessandro Michele is obviously a big fan of bright colours & prints. I just wish I could fit into the kids range to make it a bit more affordable!
