Spotted: Whistles SS12

It’s not a secret that I am a big fan of Whistles, and this season, I am loving the early press releases of their collections. Full of pieces that are easy to wear (read: loose shapes and chiffon pleats) there’s also a healthy dose of colour interspersed among the navy that I love.

First up, my key seasonal piece – the laser cut out leather top. You’ll be seeing a lot of this in the ad campaigns I suspect (ditto leather on the whole this season) and I think it’s one of those pieces that will go a long way in your wardrobe, seasonless and a style staple for years to come. Expect long waiting lists and sell out success.

Next, my favourite, the floral prints. I was a little underwhelmed by Whistles last season, mainly due to the lack of colour and as a big fan of brights my prayers have been answered. Although I’m not sure I’m brave enough to rock the tailoring in fuschia, the yellow print dress virtually has my name on it. Check out the sample of print here that translates into this fabulous jumpsuit too.

Your sartorial fashion crises solved for any summer formal events? The dresses. There’s not a season goes by without me buying a Whistles dress, although I have also been known where possible (and Whistles often do it) to buy the top and skirt in one print then wear together or separately, particularly when it comes to a more casual look. The jumpsuit featured here has been tipped for the top of the style charts but I am head over heels about the scallop edged cream dress. Come to Mama.

Lastly, global prints. Although I’ll admit when I first clocked these I wasn’t that keen, I’ve now scoured the collection images 3 or 4 times and each time I get more and more enamoured with the look. There is something very nonchalant about the shapes. Did I mention those sunglasses – chic.

I’m also loving the styling in these images. Often absorbed by the clothes themselves, I am actually kind of wishing I was the model in these shots with her grown-up look and simple style. All in all, Whistles SS12 is a winner for me..

What do you think readers? Are you a fan of Whistles or could this collection convert you?

  1. I think you know that I share your Whistles love. Especially love the florals & now hoping the blue & pink floral design comes in more than just the jumpsuit. The only problem with Whistles is that their dresses wear so well that I can keep on wearing them & so buying new dresses seems a little unnecessary, though very lovely. Happy Shopping.

  2. Damn u Rebecca!! I love far too many of these – that floral print is delish.
    Hmmmm off to make an evil master plan that means I get to have them all!

  3. I’m the same as you on the tribal prints – only just started to get them about now. Similar with those pixellated graphic florals they’ve been sneaking in there for a while – only really made sense to me recently, but boy do they make sense. That blue and yellow dress? I would actually kill for it. Whistles is a country mile out of my budget so I’m looking forward to seeing some Rebecca style shoots with it on you so I can bask in your reflected glory!


  4. I love Whistles, but I rarely buy from there… I think it’s a combination of everything selling out really fast where I live, and it’s just a tad expensive to shop there regularly!

    However, I must rectify this in my wardrobe 😉 as there’s a couple of things I’ve seen that look gorgeous.

    A couple of days ago, I also spied the orange skirt/top (I think it’s this combo) from the globetrotter pics… just gorgeous, especially for high summer and holidays!
