We’re already looking forward to the warmer weather, as well as the trends of Spring Summer 2016. Here’s a reminder of what’s to come from Sublitex in their Fast Fashion Spring Summer 2016 Collection, as shown at their offices in Dock Leicester back in November. The sophisticated, feminine florals really caught our eye.
