The latest fashion news: Spring is simmering on the horizon so stock up on some hot weather essentials:

Look out for the latest fashion sandals from Nancy King, Megan Salmon’s new summer collection, some Gatsby glam from Secrets, and bold sunnies from Clearly Contacts.

Fashion with wings

Driven by textiles, designer Megan Salmon’s newly launched summer 13/14 Madame Butterfly collection features silk fabrics printed with mirrored antique landscapes. Salmon’s opulent signature style is translated into a versatile wrap jacket, volumised tee (pictured), vest and skirt featuring the silk print. Megan Salmon is stocked at Toscana in Milton and online.


Best foot forward

When South Bank boutique Nancy King closed in 2011, it left fashion lovers with a heavy heart, but they found new life in the reincarnated Nancy King Footwear label by director and designer Sharni King. The range is available in Brisbane boutiques including Jules & Roc, The French Peg and Hunt and Gather.


Shady lady

If your future’s so bright you’ve gotta wear shades, summer’s hottest frames from Clearly Contacts come in the form of brightly hued candy colours and tinted lenses worthy of a paparazzi moment.


Keep it a secret

Reminiscent of the extravagant rag time cocktail jewellery, Secrets have captured the 1920s in an opulent colour palette of champagne, cognac and the Pantone colour of the year, emerald.
