Vika Gazinskaya for & Other Stories

Russian designer Vika Gazinskaya has had her own eponymous label for the past eight years, and been a regular on street style sites such as The Sartorialist for almost the same amount of time.

Now Vika has lent her talents to one of our favourite high street shopping destinations, & Other Stories, for whom she has designed a capsule collection.

Vika was clearly looking to he Fifties and Sixties for inspiration for her high street collaboration, with full A-line midi skirts, and strapless sweetheart necklines featuring heavily. Then there's her signature feminine doodles and patterns – choose from polka dots or dandelion drawings – that come printed on dresses.

Ankle cropped trousers, crisp short-sleeved shirts and roomy shorts in muted hues make for the perfect capsule wardrobe for those spending the majority of their summer in the city. There's even a handy trench and headscarf, too. 

Our favourite piece? Well, it has to be the polka dot wedges.

The collection hits stores on 15 May. See you there...
