If you’re not in the industry, you have no idea how picky women are when it comes to fashion. Yes, we will occasionally make reflex purchases or find a T-shirt very quickly, but if we’re on a serious shopping mission trying to find a dress to fall in love with, you can be seeking for days! If this built-in issue of ours speaks to you, then I’ve got a new collection that might have you covered entirely for the new season. Essentiel has finally revealed its fall/winter 2015-2016 campaign – a unique lookbook that includes great fashion photography and design. The collection is not extravagant, but it definitely doesn’t go onto the “Regular” shelve. It’s a fashion with a twist. Some of our favorite items are the shirts with Peter Pan collars (I guess these are never getting old), choice of simple patterns, and a comfortable color palette.
Let’s start with the style. The style is a combo of several trends. Once you mix that into one pot, you get a result that’s very difficult to categorize, but you want to store it in memory somehow. The looks are surely not feminine, some of them can be worn by businesswomen, who like to go unisex sometimes. Meanwhile, Essentiel’s pieces are not boring; they have the unexampled details and color matches that set it apart from the rest of the recent fashion news. They have the dress you find accidently and then can’t get it out of your head until you own it.
These garments easily complement the woman’s body not in a traditional, but a modern way. The Essentiel fall 2015 collection has the feminine silhouettes combined with neutrality in design. Luckily for you, the collection also has dresses in diverse shapes, so you can choose what would look perfect on your body type. We have the wrap dresses, A-line dresses, shapeless V-neck dresses with medium sleeves, and more. The looks are mostly baggy (each to a different extent), so if you’re looking for that tight fit to accentuate your curves, you won’t find it here.
The color palette is not what you’d call “refreshing” if you saw it on paper, but the photos in pastel candy pink do spark the excitement for rare originality. Besides the background, the pink is often seen in the pieces as well. A lot of grey, green, orange, blue and spectacular floral patterns with dark background and soft petals… The stylists have put together looks matching casual footwear, but you could easily go with high heels too.
As you probably understood, this collection is not one of those you see in ordinary lookbooks and/or on catwalks. What’s the best about these garments is that you can wear each piece without the need of adding accessories. You won’t ever have to think about jewelry or “spicing up the outfit,” it looks stunning the way it is. It’s a kind of clothing that outlines your uniqueness and sets you apart from the standard in a very tasteful and subtle way. The fascinating details on dresses and bags make you want to look a second time, and that’s already a win!
Summing up, the Essentiel fall 2015 collection definitely gets an A+ from us, and here’s a short message to them. “Dear Essentiel, you know we’re picky, you know we’re hard to handle, we want to be trendy and classy at the same time, but you’ve got it all right this time. Our only request – keep innovating and delivering fresh looks, and we’ll all be the happiest we can ever get!”
