I am a huge fan of Anteprima. It’s one of the shops I never hesitate to go into each time I am in Hong Kong (alas we don’t yet have Anteprima in the Philippines). One of the bags I was saving up for is the Anteprima My Melody bag… but that’s another story.

I want to share photos of Anteprima’s SS2013 with you all, and immediately after the first look was unveiled, I already knew there were pieces in the collection I’d like to own for next season. It’s all very wearable pieces that work together as- styled or as separates.

The collection began with blacks and neutrals and then moved onto softer, more feminine palettes of pastel shades. My favorites included these translucent shorts- trousers. (Though I don’t think I can wear the top with it :D)

Peek a boo belly dress.  The pockets on this dress make the piece a winner in my book.

What a fun clutch! I can’t figure out though if those silver balls are bells (remember Anya Hindmarch clutch?)

Such a good bag. I dislike small clutches and this one is a working clutch that can be carried by day as well as by night. 

Oh and did I tell you the final walkthrough shimmered and sparkled? :)

Izumi takes a bow.
