Welcome to another edition of Style & Scopes, your monthly plus size style horoscope!
I love seeing new collections come out of the independent plus size designers! They are innovative, playful, bold, and unique. They give us something to look forward to, bring something different, and oftentimes, challenge us to step outside of our boxes into something fun and daring (or at least this is how I see it!). For the Melbourne, Australian designer label, Harlow, this is what they are doing with their newest collection and website!
This season, Harlow brings us three multi capsule collections referencing their musical past, they envision us tuning into the Sports Luxe option with ‘Borderline’ as that soundtrack. “Summer Love” holds the tune for the BOHO collection while the song, “Love Me or Leave Me” envelopes the Rock Chic capsule.
Harlow’s Designer and Owner, Kerry Pietrobon, shares that this season’s collection allows us to build on our existing plus size wardrobes and/or start fresh with new classic fashion pieces. I am here for all of this.
“Every Season we think back to what Harlow women already have in their wardrobe and what we can bring to it to take it to the next level. Taking what we know our customer loves and adding to it. For example a version of our Summer Diva O/S tee has been in every range to date, Harlow customers can’t get enough of it, pair it back with our essential wet’n wild scuba leggings or our new launched denim for a perfect rock chick feel. Grab one of our basic tees, and mix it with our Borderline maxi & bomber for a real sports luxe feel.”
