A couple of weeks ago I had the treat of visting the ASOS showroom in their expansive, gorgeous, offices.  While there I sneaked a peak at the upcoming S/S collection, which will hit the site pretty soon.  It's mighty fine, I have to say.  Lots of pastels, a catalogue of co-ordinates, and rows and rows of beautiful dresses.  Print also features heavily. I took a photo of their inspiration for the season (below) and as you can see it's heavy on purples and pinks, chevron prints, and diagonals.  Oh, and swirly oil-and-water type colours. 

Those ideas are realised in the dresses below - red lace! - and props to these guys for being fearless when it comes to Hawaiian prints. I love this purple, peach and baby blue dress (below right) and can't wait to get my hands on the shorts below. 

So bonkers, I love it.  They also had this crop top and trousers co-ordinate, which made me very happy.  Geo print too!

My favourite piece, though, had to be this immaculate peachy bomber.  So delicate, and decorated with roses: it's a summer dream.

Needle & Thread (AKA ex-All Saints womenswear design director Hannah Coffin) has been making hand-embellished dresses for a while and they're STUNNING.  I have one of her All Saints dresses and it's a total babe, although very heavy.  And no surprise - every inch of the designs are covered with beads and sequins.  Below some are some of the new dresses for this year, and they don't disappoint...
