The charming and romantic courtyard at Winchester Mansions was the perfect setting for Poetry's Spring/Summer 2018 launch, with bougainvillea-laden pillars and a beautiful fountain at its centre piece. The boutique hotel has been updated to modern standards but hasn't detracted from its historical charm.
Poetry's wares were displayed on tables around the courtyard, Champagne and canapés flowed before we took our seats to view the fashion show.
I particularly love this pale pink floral dress paired with espadrilles and round bag as an option for a wedding I'm attending next month - I might just go and try it on this week!
Stripes are strong again this season as are wide legged cropped pants.
The collection brings an excitement and romance to modern day travellers for the perfect summer holiday wardrobe with relaxed silhouettes, pretty soft and feminine dresses and jumpsuits, head-to-toe two pieces and colourful swimsuits. Dresses are big this summer, with the focus on prints, summer-kissed ones and pops of yellow and vibrant red.
A soft flowing dress is a sure winner.
A flattering swimsuit with cute candy-striped fabric
I love this sunshine-y colour!
You can't beat a black jumpsuit.
Striped jumpsuit + a pop of colour bag = summer's must have!
Accessories include romantic big bags in leather and straw, feminine prints on silk scarves to tie around your neck or hair and a glorious selection of hats!
To complete the collection is an extension on homeware with hand-painted ceramics and (most exciting to me) Skin Creamery's lovely beauty products are on shelves too.
How pretty is this packaging?
