Looks from Hailwood’s Summer 2019/20 collection. Images supplied.
Hailwood‘s elegant Summer collection for 2019/20 is in stores and online now. The beautiful range features some of designer Adrian Hailwood’s signature styles like bomber jackets, tailored dresses and graphic tees in fresh new prints and colourways for summer. Hailwood is a master of mixing vintage-inspired looks with modern ideas for pieces that feel of the moment but also timeless which is an enviable skill.
This season sees the designer utilising a lush tropical print on an easy to wear wrap dress and draped dress, as well as a classic bomber style and wide-legged trousers. The soothing blues of the print work perfectly with other blue hued and neutral pieces in the range giving the collection a relaxed charm. They’re cleverly juxtaposed with vibrant scarlet red which ups the ante of the range.
Stripes are a key feature of the collection and whether vertical, draped or used for a chevron print they’re a welcome addition. The sundresses with their a-line skirts and flirty keyhole necklines are particularly delightful and have a ladylike sophistication with their midi-length hemlines. Hailwood has a knack for making dresses that are not just winsome but offer elegance and confidence to the wearer. It’s hard not to smile or feel like a kick-ass woman when wearing a Hailwood dress, and that’s just the way the designer likes it too.
