Alice McCall | Flower Drum | FW2014 Collection
The starting point of inspiration for Alice’s Spring Collection “Flower Drum” were her memories of her grandmother’s vanity table treasures and perfume bottles. Somewhere inbetween, this grew to a larger theme of fragrance and flora.
With this in mind, alice McCALL’s signature candy cotton shades were given a heavenly update – as an abundance of floral prints, laces and embroideries cut through block colours in plumes of cascading bluebells, daisies, anemones, poppies, water lilies and roses. Watercolour florals make up Parisian summer dresses with gossamer chiffon peplums.
Gold thread is woven into cherry blossom branches on bell-sleeved dresses and back-baring jumpsuits. Even denim is even given a fragrant treatment - appliqued with giant lotus flowers across dungarees, dresses and even a sweet cloud-sleeved romper.
Standout pieces include an ivory white oversized floral lace jumpsuit, scalloped lace delicately framing the décolletage. Also on the list: jet black and tea rose gowns embroidered with folds of swooping Oriental birds and blossoms. Moniker alice McCALL can be seen in a wide-legged set of pastel and heavily embroidered overalls-come-trousers, with a clever detachable bib.
Basics come in a few forms: gracefully cropped tuxedo jacket and matching short shorts made from petals of fabric, as well as denim crop tops, jogger shorts and jumpsuits – all with summer-camp rope toggles. Graphic striped stretch-jersey basics are made equally for island hopping adventures as they are for pavement-pounding everyday errands.
Shades of lipstick-red appear in ribbons across diaphanous floral Palazzo pants and a very 70s playsuit, while lashes of poppy-red make skin-baring bodice jumpsuits and party-dresses radiate.
Alice’s pick? A black lace two-piece, striped and scattered with polka-dots.With an irreverent mix and match approach to print and signature silhouettes, the collection is the embodiment of streetstyle.
