White Suede S/S 2014 Preview

White Suede just keeps getting better and better. And the upcoming collection hitting stores over the following months is something to get excited about. 

I had such a great time talking to White Suede's head designer, Jacqui who took me through her thought process when designing and styling her pieces for her upcoming collection titled White Noise. 

The preview was separated into 3 amazing drops. The first initially showcases beautiful leather pieces in my favourite colour (duh black), and moves into a few striking blue and staple monochrome pieces. My absolute favourite aspect from the first drop is the blue, white and black floral, almost oriental print. This print is showcased through an amazing round neck jacket and matching shorts - love a short suit!

The second drop included some great monochrome mesh pieces, which I loved! The print of this drop included Jacqui's take on light and shade hitting origami style shapes. The dress on the mannequin is one of my favourites, love the cut, uneven hem and chiffon draping! This drop also contained the new look leather running shorts with a more curved hem and side panels, which I know you'll all love and wait for it, perforated leather shorts. Need.

Finally, the third drop was filled with pinks, whites and a contrast of soft and bright blues and purples. Very feminine and perfect for spring. I can definitley imagine this range being very popular for the Spring Racing Carnival! 

So here's a little preview of what's to come...

We LOVE Zoe's (Bake Me Cake Me) cupcakes!

So here's what I wore... I've currently been obsessed with wearing my plain black Bassike tank dress underneath different shirts and jumpers, and tonight I've paired it with a long sleeve black shirt from Witchery. I broke up the all black everything effect with this AMAZING digital print blazer from Shilla.
