You can always count on Gorman to give good print. Their Winter 2014 collection, Never Smile at a Crocodile (which is also excellent life advice btw), features the bold graphic prints and pops of colour that we’ve come to expect from the label. Animal references are present in the form of croc and cheetah prints, while a striking cactus print seems to be a natural progression from the fruit and vegetable themed prints of past collections. The palette is more subdued, typical for a winter collection, but that doesn’t mean a lack of colour. Mustard yellows, baby pinks, bright blues and greens sit alongside basic black and navy hues. Whether you’re after statement making prints or seasonal essentials, Gorman has you covered. The collection will be available in-store and online from April 10.
Gorman are also one of the independent designers featured in my pop up shop with The Third Row. Be sure to check it out to see some of my favourite items from a bunch of great independent stores.
