There's so much about this vibe that I love - and I'm especially keen on seeing the looks as a development of a previous editorial posted on the blog, which also praises these new style values. What's clear is that there is a powerful strength of trend in this incredibly modern silhouette - and it's one which has also begun to find value commercially via the high street. Bold lines and interesting fabric combinations certainly get the thumbs up from me, and yes, I think it's about time we realised that socks and sandals are no longer a crime. It's great to see some original new looks move into popular fashion culture - you know you're onto a winner when people think you're dressing kinda weird.
