Beautiful Soul Spring/Summer 2012

Beautiful Soul is known for its bespoke Kimono Collection and this is Nicola Woods second ready to wear collection which is called ‘Summer Breeze’. This season she exhibited at Vauxhall Fashion Scout with Felicites Presents and Ecoluxe London.

The silhouette is classic, easy shapes with ruffles and crop jackets but there’s something quite quirky and fun about the looks and it’s the prints! They are inspired by the English summertime and vintage kimono fabrics from Beautiful Soul’s archive of Japanese kimonos. Beautiful Soul is based in Notting Hill and the prints have subtle influences of the brightly coloured houses, tree blossoms, and local parks surrounding Nicola’s studio. Every season Nicola does classic and cute trenches -  it’s nice to have a good summer trench as you never know when it’s going to rain!

Beautiful Soul uses British wool, sustainable organic fabrics and even the buttons are made from vegetable ivory – the seed from a palm tree!
