I did wonder where celebrity favourite Mina would go next when the fad for bold, vintage-esque printed dresses died down a little. It seems they've managed to make a nice transition, with subtler colours and frills and flounces in abundance in their most recent range. The frilled leopard print dress (£65) mimicks Christopher Kane's catwalk styles to a tee, but in a slightly more wearable (not to mention affordable) way. Meanwhile, the print of the high necked frill bib dress (£59) reminds me of a Chanel tweed. There's still a slight problem if you're over a size 12 with lots of stuff coming in tiny 'fits all' sizes, but these two styles come in a L, which will apparently stretch to a 14. I'll let you know...
