I've had the pleasure of following fledgling label Sofia Clothing since its eponymous designer, Sofia Mendez Schenone, won the Generation Next competition for up-and-coming designers in 2010. (You can read my thoughts on Sofia's debut collection here and her first Eco Fashion Week show here.)
For spring/summer 2012, Sofia showed a collection which pretty much encapsulated exactly what I'd like to be sporting right now and well into next season. It's on trend and oh so pretty, marketable and wearable. Think cropped trousers and capris, tulip-hemmed dresses, 3/4 sleeve frocks and lots of sheer textures. The refined colour palette--mostly cobalt blue, orange, black and white with a bit of lavender in the form of a sleek trench--makes for clothes that can be worn year-round. The dresses would look great with dark tights and tall boots for winter, while the blue trousers would work well with leopard-print pumps and a camel-coloured sweater.
If you're eager to get your hands on this season's Sofia pieces, I've been told she's stocked at Dream and One of a Few among other stores. Happy shopping!
