Understated, relaxed yet always luxurious and on-trend in a subtle way, Mint Velvet is one of our favourite go-to brands for quality pieces that you won’t see on every other person on the street. So when the Mint Velvet Press Day rolls around each season, we are always excited to see what the brand has in store.
Held in the tranquil surroundings of the Spa at the Sanderson Hotel, SS14 according to Mint Velvet harks back to the glory days of the 90s. Think The Spice Girls toned down with a pinch of Kate Moss in her Calvin Klein days. Slip dresses worn with trainers, rucksacks and bomber jackets were all present but these rucksacks are made from super soft leather and the bomber jacket comes in a beautiful abstract print rather than cheap polyester.
Printed mix and match separates were just one of the stand out highlights of the collection as were super soft chambray denim tops, a midi leather pencil skirt in dove grey and a sugar pink maxi dress would look just as good in a posh London cocktail bar as it would on the beach.
Greys, blues, creams with splashes of pink dominated the colour scheme and a nostalgic palm tree print ran through the entire collection appearing on jumpsuits, dresses and tops. The footwear collection is also not be missed with barely there strappy sandals and Grecian inspired flats taking centre stage. Overall, whether you prefer the more on-trend pieces or the everyday basics, in true Mint Velvet style, it is an utterly wearable collection that will instantly update your look.
