MODIFIED: 25/03/2010 – Here we are in complete surprise having to update the contents of this article, which we’ve just found out was the most clicked-on site by web surfers looking for the lowdown on the Spring/Summer collection. It’s funny to think that we wrote the first piece way back in December, on Christmas Eve actually, to discuss the new Spring collections that had made it to the shops even before the really cold spell that we were battered with for some three months set in… and before the January sales or special end-of-season offers that were a huge hit.
We’ll try not change such a good article too much (we say patting ourselves on the back), just enough to bring you some more details and facts to go deeper inside the new Patrizia Pepe Spring/Summer collection. The first thing you’ll see is the catwalk show video… a real showstopper with a bit of a wild feel conjuring up images of Africa.
Yes, that’s because Africa is very much the leading lady of this season’s collection, entitled “THE ROAD TO MOMBASA”… It is intended to transport contemporary women into this land of discovery, to be seen and experienced in a new light in order to embrace the three main moods that inspired the collection: MIM_ETHNIQUE, CITY_SPA, POP_AFRIQUE. LaKarlo expressed these revelations very eloquently in this post quite recently http://inside.patriziapepe.com/it/2010/insidenewpatriziapepess10collection/
If all this hasn’t curbed your appetite and you’re hungry for more Spring trends… have a look at the more recent blogs for loads more interesting facts. Every Season Super Style, Short Leggings, Active Glam… and even more brand new trends coming soon!!!

There are sequined dresses and shorts to peek adorably out of a fur coat… equally cute whether real or ecological, or what about under a cosy sheepskin coat (if you’re quick, you can still grab one from the Outlet), then there’s the fluttery silk chiffon tops to be worn with a snuggly wool or cashmere mac or even a pure-white down jacket, and don’t get us started on the accessories… the sequined tie for a mannish look with a touch of femme, or the practical clutch to brighten up a Total Black look.
