Erin Mullaney's Spring Summer Edit

Last week I headed over to Avenue 32 HQ, a modern building on an industrial street in the shadow of White City Westfield and adjacent to the busy West Way.

Over a milky tea I chatted with Fashion and Brand Director, Erin Mullaney about the spring summer pieces she's currently coveting. As former Buying Director at shopping emporium, Browns, Erin is perfectly poised to introduce her personal dynamism to Avenue 32 and share a diverse wish list of her own on Milk.

See below for Erin's edit of her personal loves, wants and needs!

My summer style is going to be all about neutrals mixed with colour. I love wearing white, beige and tan in the summer, mixed with army green, fresh brights and bold print. I'll probably keep my outfits quite low key, using coloured accessories and strong jewellery as highlights. I am obsessed with pleated silk dresses, cotton shirts and cool trainers, feeling a lot more feminine this summer than I have in the past few years.

I am always looking for beautiful gowns to wear to all the summer weddings I will be going to and I have found a perfect match in new Brazilian designer Barbara Casasola. Barbara’s dresses are pleated and draped in the most effortless and flattering way and feel so fresh and modern, yet also timeless. - Pleated dress - Barbara Casasola exclusive to Avenue 32, £1,490 -

I am obsessed with high top trainers – I collect them and buy a few pairs a season. These amazing limited edition trainers by Pierre hardy for MoP have an even cooler edge than most – the print was done by artist Fiona Banner (Fiona created a print for MoP for ss12 that was intended to be read as a book – it was even published with its own IBAN number) and when you look closely you can see that the words on the side are actually quotes from my all-time favourite cult movie Point Break!! - High top trainers - Pierre Hardy for Mother of Pearl exclusive to Avenue32, £405 -

The Palmer Harding boys are my new wardrobe staple for Spring… I am totally addicted to their beautifully made white shirts with a modern twist. This one is definitely a future classic. - White shirt - Palmer Harding at Avenue 32, £265 -

I am investing in fine jewellery now as it is something you will have forever and can even pass down as an heirloom. Hannah Martin’s pearl earring (can be worn as a pair or even cooler, just on its own) and pearl ring are on my SS12 wish list. - Pearl earring - Hannah Martin at Avenue 32, £390 -

I am obsessed with hand-embroidered bags at the moment, and this one from Sara Battaglia is the perfect summer festival bag. It’s also a great way to wear print and colour with a more neutral outfit. - ‘Mochila’ bag - Sara Battaglia at Avenue 32, £570 -
