PRANELLA With a focus on movement, bright hues and intricate accents, Pranelle’s SS18 collection draws on myriad influences: the tropics meet the Balearics in a riot of colour, while Far Eastern detailing creates contrasts that capture the heat and shade of exotic climates. Using the finest linens, cotton, silks and globally- sourced materials, the company’s designs provide a vivid palette on which the Pranella woman can stamp her own individual style. The company’s beachwear collection boasts details such as embroidery, frills and tassel embellishments while a bohemian textural contrast helps define its spring/summer collection. A vibrant colour palette encompassing sea-foam, tangerine, orchid and emerald evokes tropical climes, while diaphanous cottons and silks make the pieces both luxurious and wearable.
