Titled English Country Garden, the new s/s 18 collection from childrenswear brand Lilly + Sid draws inspiration from lazy summer days in the countryside.
Highlights include timeless and vintage details – from 60s collars and pattern cutting through to 70s homespun motifs – combined with contemporary shapes, reinvented for a new generation.
Elsewhere, wildlife motifs appear in prints, embroideries and appliques, as well as hiding in pockets and linings. Embellishment, meanwhile, continues with a handcrafted feel in smocking, applique and embroidered styles.
Flora and fauna influences can be found in butterflies and bugs, while pond fishing references provide an alternative twist on nautical styling.
Fresh garment shapes echo animal silhouettes, including character shift dresses, dungarees and playsuits, while new reversible styles allow unique outfit choices for baby, boys and girls.
Also new for 2018 are ‘basics with a twist’, layering pieces in the brand’s signature style designed to provide modern wardrobe staples.
