Muveil, Spring Summer 2011
When the pretty clothes in a collection are complemented by a beautifully-photographed lookbook and a lovely model, you have the key for success. It is the case of Muveil, a Japanese brand that is internationally noted and enjoyed. The faded images of the model in different poses give such an interesting impression of movement, that you could just stare at these photos for hours!
The spring-summer 2011 collection is just… lovely! All the colors seem to work together, the items look good together, but they would easily match something you already have in your wardrobe. Very light, neutral tones, like beige and ivory, are wonderfully combined with brighter colors, like pink, yellow or red. The combo red+blue should also be mentioned, since it’s such a great one for summer – think navy or Paris!
Platform sandals are perfect for the warm season, you can walk in them easily, but look tall and slim at the same time. Light colors are the best! And if it’s still too cold for bare feet, you can wear them with colored ankle socks or thin over the knee socks.
As for skirts, the length has dropped significantly: it’s no longer the time for minis, but rather for longer, knee or below the knee hems. These look very chic with platforms!
