One thing that is quickly becoming the highlight of our week is when our favourite high street shops drop their newest collections, the latest to do so being Zara. The Spanish giant’s summer collection is full of all the hottest trends, including inventive cotton shirting, ruffles and ruching, relaxed silhouettes and a riot of colour.
In fact, Zara’s summer collection is akin to a rainbow explosion – from ice cream shades to jewel tones, it’s all there and is exactly what we need in these dark times. And it seems the retailer is sticking with letting their models shoot the looks themselves at home during lockdown, a very clever creative move that is resulting in some of the most gorgeous and candid fashion photography around (you can even see one of the models holding a remote shutter release clicker for ultimate homemade vibes).
