Hayley Scanlan – Studded Dreams

I’m pretty much god smacked I’ve never posted about SFA nominee Hayley Scanlan before. Girl is pretty much ticking all those boxes for me. Graphic prints? Check. Studs everywhere? Check. Hunners of gold? Check check check. Clean, contemporary and edgy Hayley Scanalan’s designs live firmly in the camp of an idealised future version of myself who is super rich and is in a job where I can legit rock up to work in a studded jacket every god damn day. I love the colour palette (mint and gold, pink and gold, black and gold) and the stark geometric shapes and faces that are for base of her collection. Designed and crafted within Scotland, Scanlan’s collection is available exclusively at Stud & Stud (basically the website of my dreams.) I can totally imagine this being the base for my Summer wardrobe – cut out shoulders, maxi dresses with mass splits and high necked mini dresses with bursts of citrus? That will do nicely. The clothes have classic contemporary silhouettes making them easy to wear, but it’s all the details that keep the work edgy and all sorts of good.
The Phidias mini dress is my favourite – the illustrated faces, studs and cut out shoulders is a bit of a dream. I usually favour a midi but this is the sort of guy I would totally make an exception for. If I had a spare £300. Just saying.
You can buy yourself some of Hayley’s pieces at Stud & Stud, follow her on facebook or twitter.
