SSAFW The Winter Collections—I LOVE LEROY

I LOVE LEROY (by Sarah Webber) is inspired by the street. The clothing is classic and comfortable with elements of laid-back romance. Here's what SSAFW has to say about I LOVE LEROY's the autumn/winter collection: "Playful elements of the 60s housewife collide with the sulky cowgirl combined with a vibrant street signature. In preparation for summer's last breath, colours become bolder, fabrics more chunky and garments layered. I LOVE LEROY is for those 'tomboy goes to church' moments and the appeal of hot chocolate for so many grey days to come."

MIMI's two cents: I LOVE LEROY is definitely one of our favorite collections from SSAFW's autumn/winter show. The urban influence clearly shows with the hooded jackets and tops, and it's nice that Sarah Webber added a femine touch to it all by pairing it all with bubble dresses. This is a collection, that we can actually see ourselves wearing when we're out and about and wanting to look chic, but not overdressed. Luv it!

Nice, but it looks like a regular American catalog; like something from Macy's.

I agree. There's nothing African about the designs at all.
