Next generation utility-wear with an athletic vibe. Dumpty’s SS18 collection made functional, fashionable at LFW2017.

The Dumpty SS18 models stepped out with attitude on Monday morning, showcasing this to a pulsating electronic beat.

This unisex collection, used synthetic fabrics to create durable pieces which appear both functional and highly wearable, with playful cut-outs and asymmetric styling, giving the collection a 90’s kid edge.

White, black and orange provided a solid base to the outfits, while greens and greys occasionally dressed down the utility tone. Pink, a seasonal spring favourite, made a cheeky appearance, contrasted with a black, leather-look jacket to give the look a tougher aesthetic.

The incorporation of high sport socks and mint-green trainers gave the whole collection an athletic vibe, complemented by the slicked back hair and grungy bare-face styling. The casual added branding of “dumpty” stamped across the forehead of each model, an added quirk which spoke to the bold and mischievous personality of the brand.

Zips, Velcro and oversized pockets statemented the pieces, while accessories were alternatively worn with bun-bags fasted across the chest, their straps made from what looked like car seat-belts, an innovative supplement to the practical feel of the collection.

Girls, when it comes to your summer wardrobe, if Kuccia can't get you in the mood for sun, festivals and encouraging you to eat your five a day (bare with me), I don't know what will. A rainbow coloured collection of leggings, crop tops, dresses, playsuits and more has landed in high street favourite Topshop, covered in everything from juicy bananas and watermelons to aztec and palm tree prints. With a coveted spot on ASOS and heaps of stock in a number of shops across the country, the exciting clothing label has been putting a citrusy and playful kick into fashion already. Headed up by Devon girl Soraya Goggin, the Kuccia brand looks to do it's thing for girls of all shapes and sizes, keeping things flexible and flattering with their eclectic range of prints, cuts and fabrics.

Not one to boast (but yeah, I guess I am) I've been a fan of Kuccia since July 2012 after clocking one of their cycling shorts playsuits being worn by a dancer from the Heatwave crew at last years Secret Garden Party. As well as having a great old time shaking my thing to Vybz Kartel, I made a somewhat hazy mental note that I had to at some point get my mitts on one of those banging all-in-ones when I got home. After some stealth hunting down, I found their Facebook page and a link to their online shop and admittedly, not feeling super confident enough to rock out the playsuit, I opted for a pair of the watermelon leggings instead. I couldn't have felt fruitier. Top banana if you will.

Here's a sneak peek at some of my favourite items from the collection:

Watermelon body con dress: £38

So I'd get myself down to Topshop or onto their website before these sell out quicker than a £4 bottle of luke warm water at Glastonbury.
