PREVIEW - Life Aquatic by Finders Keepers

Pastels and neons are both big news this season, but what about wearing them both together? I was inspired by the preview of the new 'life Aquatic' collection by Finders Keepers, available at Harvey Nichols from mid March. These lookbook shots show how to work nudes, pastels and neon hues into the same outfit this season. We all know how big pastels are for spring, just take a look at the ice-cream shades at Louis Vuitton, as worn by Lana Del Rey on the cover of this month's Vogue magazine. But the whole fluoro look is a sideline trend that can also be worked in for a pop of vibrant colour. 

Personally, I find pastels quite hard to wear top-to-toe so it's a welcome look. I also love navy and tangerine together, something that Victoria Beckham did really beautifully at New York Fashion Week.


I love the tangerine pieces, especially this hitched-up skirt. Tangerine was named as Pantone's colour for 2012, so expect to see plenty of it everywhere from designer collections to the high street. A great way to complete the look would be with Butter London's nail polish in Jaffa, pictured below. Now I just need a manicure...
