I discovered Three Parsons earlier in the year. A South Australian label, developed around the simple premise that all women crave timeless basic clothing pieces at affordable prices. Yes We Do!
I asked Natalie, the driving force behind Three Parsons, to share with us the inspiration behind her latest collection, Three Parsons Summer 2014/15.
“The inspiration behind all of my ranges is to provide women with pieces that they will be able to have in their wardrobes for years as their go to pieces … designs that don’t date and are timeless, stylish and effortless, whilst also being affordable and amazing quality.
I always keep in mind how all age groups can wear the pieces. For example, I have a lot of mothers and daughters who shop Three Parsons and want to be able to share their clothing. I always try to do pieces that they will be able to do this with but wear different ways according to their age.
I love prints as you can see and always search for good quality fabric with prints that also will be timeless. I also do like to use basic colours, black, white, khaki and denim as I feel that these also are timeless and can be worn back well with all the prints and a great staple pieces to have in your wardrobe. This season I have used mainly Rayon and Cotton fabrics, which are light, cool and comfortable to wear, perfect for the Aussie Summer!”
Thanks Natalie – I just loved getting a little sneak peek into the mindset of your beautiful label.
I really wanted to bring you my favourite pieces from the latest Three Parsons Summer 2014/15 collection. Except, I actually just want one of everything. I’m serious. So instead, I’ve selected three standout themes that inspired me about the Three Parsons summer collection. Evening, Tops and Print.
Three Parsons Summer | evening
I’ve collated four gorgeous pieces as the Kimba Likes Three Parsons evening collection. These pieces are so fabulously versatile and can be dressed down as easily and beautifully as they can be dressed up.
The cuts, fabric and prints are just fabulous. Imagine the Maxi Dress with embellished flats or totally glammed up with chandelier earrings and a statement heel.
The Essential Dress is deceptively simple, but the cut is oh so elegant and eminently flattering. Another piece that transforms from day to evening in the blink of an eye.
My favourite piece from the Three Parsons Winter 2014 collection was the beautiful cape jackets. As soon as I saw the new collection was online, I immediately scoured the site looking for an updated summer version. I was not disappointed. Oh the Lace Cape Jacket!
The on trend jumpsuit is cut to flatter, with the contrasting pocket detail adding another level of detail and figure flattery. I love it!
Three Parsons Summer | tops
I purchased a few Three Parsons tops from the Summer 2014 and Winter 2014 collection. The tops feature flattering details designed to flatter a figure, with a focus on a swing silhouette. Designed for layering over simple basic tanks or with a layered construction, the Three Parsons Summer collection features a gorgeous selection of tops.
I’m really struggling which tops to choose to make my own! Note I say tops. I don’t think I can just have one, right?
Whilst the tops I’ve selected as my favourites are shown here teamed with denim, they would work equally well with shorts, pencil skirts, flowing maxis or soft pants.
Three Parsons Summer | Print
Another feature of the Three Parsons label that I love is their gorgeous prints and colour. Some of the tops and pants are designed to be matched together, and I can see some gorgeous print clash combinations in my future.
Versatility is another feature of the Three Parsons design ethos. The kaftans and short dresses can be worn on their own or layered over other items to create a whole new look.
The coral and blue colours from the Three Parsons Summer collection work back with existing wardrobe staples – love that!
