If designer Genevieve Er’s latest collection is anything to go by - sheer floaty dresses, billowy wide legged pants, divine woven knits which sit alongside dramatic fringing, micro shorts and luxurious leather pieces – are the summer looks that will make our eyes pop, and our hearts thump!
Following the launch of her 2012 2ND Summer collection “Purple Rain”, we caught up with Genevieve and she let us in on the style trends to look out for this spring/summer!
