Last Monday we treated you to a plus size preview on Insta Stories when we went live from the Navabi / Studio 8 event in Farringdon. There were previews for AW17 collections but the main excitement was seeing plus size blogger, Arched Eyebrow’s very first collection for Navabi, the destination online shop for plus size designer fashion.
This is the first time Navabi have collaborated with bloggers to create collections that really fill the gaps in plus size women’s wardrobes. While the site carries a phenomenal amount of product, covering everything from swim to workwear and occasion pieces, sometimes you can’t get that extra bit of magic from a mass supplier and as the brand have developed their own brand, Navabi Collection line, they have branched out into blogger collabs.
The first to drop is from outspoken plus size advocate, fashion blogger and social media guru, Bethany Rutter of Arched Eyebrow who has compiled a capsule collection of wearable separates in bright, colour block hues. Bethany took fairly classic, wearable and easy to work shapes and infused them with a colour palette that is sure to turn heads. It very much feels like a fight back against the mass amount of black that plus size brands have put forward for years. Bethany’s collection is fun, on trend and powerfully potent in colour. We love the fact that all the pieces can be mixed and matched to meet a multitude of style tastes.
On the night of the event, the feedback on the collections fit was five stars. The check shirt, which is so cute and bang on trend fit across the bust really well and was really a star of the evening. While our very own Renee tried on the high waisted, on trend, paper bag waist trousers and they were right on the money. Renee never wears trousers because the fit is normally awful but once again, Navabi have come up trumps and they looked fantastic!
While Navabi is known for quality, this also means that prices are slightly higher than your fast fashion retailers. Bethany has ensured her capsule collection actually starts from £39.99 up to £129.99 for a belted coat, so all in all a totally reasonably priced collection and a style success.
