I have to be totally honest, I’ve not always been a big fan of Boohoo.com. I’ve always found the prices to be reasonable, but always felt that the clothes and styling was just a little bit, well, young for me. So I was more than presently surprised when I received some images of the latest collection Monte Carlo, because there were so many things that I was frankly dying to buy.
This is a cool collection, chocked full of grown up styles influenced by that most chic of French Riviera resorts. There’s an obvious nautical influence, with a prevalence of reds and blues, along with the obligatory stripes. But there are also clear echoes of those most iconic of French citizens, Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin. Here are my favourite items, prepare to be surprised.
