Clements Ribeiro for Evans - Swan

I might be biased, but I LOVE the Clements Ribeiro for Evans collection. The debut plus size designer collaboration between design duo, Inacio Ribeiro and Suzanne Clements, and the UK's plus size fashion leaders, Evans, is an explosion of prints, vintage inspired pieces and glamour.

The collection, titled 'Swan', is structured around 1940 inspired shapes in a mix of bold prints and colours is all about showcasing and flattering curves, without shying away from trends and stand-out design elements. The tea dresses are by far my favourite pieces and I love the red 'Joan' dress, as worn by plus size super model, Tara Lynn, as she poses with the designers.

'For our first range we addressed the different body shapes, with styles which are accessible but modern, with an emphasis on prints and femininity. It was our starting point, understanding different proportions and different needs behind a desire for fashion that is not different from the high fashion consumer. Far from being apologetic or patronising, we celebrated curves and voluptuousness.' Inacio Ribeiro

The collection launched online today, and will be in UK stores from Monday 2nd April. Sizes range from 14-32, and prices start from £25.
