Armed with more than 10 new designs and themes, Jo’s spring/summer 2006 collection, entitled ‘Nice Try!’ is inspired by summer memories of prize-giving ceremonies in school. The Nice Try! collection consists of a harmonious role plays of individual characters – it reflects the formality of the school committee seated on the stage versus the fidgeting, and cheeky little children in the audience
Tailoring is key to the collection and every design is executed in a versatile array of luxurious cottons and fine masculine wools.
Masculine elements are injected into feminine tailoring in the style. Example? An androgynous jacket with its deceiving fake waistcoat and a matronly-buttoned front dress with tucks was completely transformed into a sweet number by making it in translucent baby blue chiffon. Result? An unique hybrid of both subtle masculine and feminine modes which is ready-to-wear and chic. Pinstripes, preppy checkerboard cotton, Prince of Wales and sombre charcoal-grey stretch drill and suiting is refreshingly lined in an assortment of colour.
Hansel’s Nice Try! Spring/Summer 2006 collection is sure to please little souls everywhere. The collection will be available exclusively at the Felt boutique from Mid-March 2006.
