Sneak Peek: Oasis Spring Summer 13

Oasis has long held a well-earned reputation for feminine elegance on the high street.

But with their soon-to-be-released Spring Summer collection, they’re shaking things up. Coming our way will be edgier prints, peek-a-boo cut-outs, higher hemlines and snugger fits– and all with a younger customer in mind. Prices are lower too, and start from €69.
That stunning vintage inspired clutch will be €37; the floral jacket will be €88 and the shorts, €47 - a matching dress will also be available. Also loving this cord and crystal necklace - very similar to the River Island lovely I showed you here.
The younger vibe is bolstered by a new collaboration with Rebecca Lefevre, a recent graduate of Central St Martin’s fashion college, which launches in May. The limited edition, 3-piece collection features vibrant colours and high-fashion detailing – I love this mesh panelled jacquard shift dress, which will be just €94.


As a more mature fan, I was slightly concerned about this younger direction – but honestly, I needn’t have worried. There’s plenty on offer for the old regulars, too, from standout separates to floral tea dresses and easy tailoring.  I’ve ear-marked a stunning black belted maxi dress for my holiday later this year. And as with previous collections, the accessories are to die for –think vintage inspired box clutches, and lots and lots of crystal.

As my 13-year-old niece said to me recently, the next time I visit, we can both go shopping in Oasis. Sounds delightful, and sure what harm – apart from to my wallet…!
Pieces from the SS13 collection will be landing between end-March and May. Will you be paying them a wee visit in store?

Ooh I love that sundress and the clutch but those prices aren't much cheaper than normal. Oasis needs to get in touch with reality and bring their prices in line. In saying that, their stuff is good quality, I've Oasis dresses at home that are years old and in perfect condition.

I love the necklace and the clutch from your collage, I don't think they have any clothes that would suit me at all but the colours are really nice.
