Enduring glamour has always been a hallmark of John Charles occasionwear and the Spring / Summer 2013 collection is no exception with a stunning range of suits and luxury eveningwear. Taking inspiration directly from the sixties glitterati, John Charles has focused on smart tailoring and chic detailing.

In particular creative director Regine Ellis (pictured left) and her team have looked at the classic style of Jackie Kennedy, a major icon of the era whose style revolutionised smartwear. This distinctive look has been fused with some subtle pastel shades, distinctive animal prints and striking florals perfect for the summer evenings.

Pastel shades, distinctive animal prints and sweet florals – perfect for a summer evening.

Pale pinks and dusty blues have been interwoven into the striking patterns, classical creams and ivories have been pivotal also within the colour palette to create the tailored coats and jackets - nipping in at the waist creating a naturally feminine shape. John Charles has woven a range of delicate, hand crafted lace pieces onto bodices, knee-length dresses and jackets. Adding to the brands already large variety of fabrics they have also included tweeds, new dupions and twill continuing their signature for internationally sourced and luxury textiles. Flexibility has always been a key belief of the brand offering stunning outfits perfect for the day that can also carry you through into the evening.
