Looks like Talking French read my memo for the sunny season! Light, airy, feminine, a daily dose of wearable glamour are only a few of the cornerstones on which this Belgian brand has built it’s foundation , and season after season the collections they present are firecrackers!

New Collaboration Alert: Essentiel x Disney

Disney came a-knockin’ on the door of Essentiel, the trend-driven, endgy and urban prime of Belgian fashion, and Inge Onsea and her team more than happily obliged. Together they came up with this urban fairytale of a collection, with the sweet Bashful – one of Snow White’s Seven Dwarfs – as the center of attention. His sweet half smile and cute blushing cheeks have made him an iconic Disney figure, and now grace the white and soft grey pieces of this collection. Bashful contrasting with big, colourful sequins, a slauchy, casual sweater over a structured neoprene skater skirt, or the complementing neoprenen top with it’s golden flower appliqué, nothing is too crazy for Spring! A touch of weekend casual for a Saturday shopping trip, a touch of fashion for coffee with the ladies or full on fashionata, these pieces cater to your every sartorial wish Ohhhh, go-o-o-osh… The Bashful Collection is available from this week at Essentiel stores or via http://www.essentiel-antwerp.com.com
