Natalie B Coleman’s SS17 offering is out to capture your heart.

 

Natalie B Coleman’s Donkey Love collection exudes sweet summer romance in fresh tones of soft pink and pale blue. Airy asymmetric forms in futuristic striped airtex and jacquard textiles of blue and white are styled with soft, pattern-woven pink cottons. These frilly daywear pieces are complemented with the contrast of ghostly tulle dresses and shirts perfect for romantic evening wear.

The real magic of Donkey Love is the story behind its inspiration. Natalie’s first fashion internship took place on the tiny island of Inis Méain Island off the coast of West Ireland. Natalie decided to return after many years, this time with her 5 week old baby, Eden, to show her all the natural beauty the island has to offer.   

Inspired by the wild flowers and quiet romance of summer on the island, Natalie dreamt up a story. She envisioned a young girl who pines for love, and one day decides to sneak out of her house and off to the mainland to attend a party. She sews her party dresses in secret and adorns them with the gorgeous flowers and images of her surroundings. This collection embodies that adventurous island girl, unafraid of pursuing love.
