New Look: A young look

Fashion-forward British brand, New Look, is known to offer a unique combination of exciting and fresh designs to a core target audience — the younger generation and the more matured. Their fashion items vary from men’s wear, children, lingerie, footwear, accessories and of course women’s wear.
This season, New Look offers bold, sassy and suave designs. Tarnished hardware, contrast collars, dogtooth, Aztec and baroque prints come together to demonstrate the eclectic nature of the collection.
New Look’s women autumn/winter 2012 collection is all about sumptuously feminine elements and their strong structured counterparts. The fascinating collection is a combination of magic and rebellion, creating a dynamic duo of beautifully soft and floating designs, accentuated with strong structures. This collection offers floral prints in dark gothic palettes mixed with studs and spikes, as well as a mixture of leather and denim that contrast nicely against each other. This line gives the opportunity for women to explore their rebellious side with graphic tees and buckled biker boots, and brace their feminine core, with a selection of sheer fabrics and lace nuances.
‘The Rebel’ collection offers bold colors in shades of black red and grey. The key elements of this collection include cross bones, ripped denim and leather biker jackets. Gold buttons and studded details give this range a real rebel attitude with a gothic twist.
‘Rebel Without a Cause’ is the more casual part of the collection, with different shades of denim, leopard print and red-rose print that add a girly touch. It’s all about clashing patterns, skinny jeans and biker jackets.
‘50’s Rebel’ is the 1950’s inspired side to the range, dogtooth prints, peplums, stripes, cigarette pants and PU jackets, giving a more tailored approach to the look and creating a sleek silhouette.
Prints, patterns and textures define the ‘Keleidofolk’ collection. This collection is all about lavish fabrics that showcases bold designs, paisley, rich decorative, kaleidoscope and mirror print. The color palette is rich and vibrant with acid yellow, bright corals, deep blues and metallic that add shine and texture. Knits are layered with acid-wash denim for an easy effortless feel, while leather and quilting is introduced to toughen up this cozy collection.
The glamorous retro fashions of the 1971 film ‘Get Carter’ influence the collection of the same name. The range has simple shapes with a focus on fabrics and textures. Masculine elements are explored in tailored shirts with contrast collars, tapered trousers and oversized coats. On the other hand, feminine styles are satisfied with pencil skirts, Peter Pan collars, shift dresses and mini skirts. The range employs color blocking in bold shades of red and blue. Court shoes in multi-colored tweed and oversized totes complement the streamlined silhouette.
This season, New Look has created three unique ranges that pull together all the masculine trends of the season. There is something for everyone; there is the ‘Sweeny Todd’ collection for those who love the Rock and Roll look, as well as the ‘Eton Mess’ collection for those who love the British style look with a twist. The ‘Pioneer’ collection is all about reflecting the great outdoors, using rich, deep color palates with a cool edge. This collection brings a new seasonal style to men everywhere.

Gigi Hadid celebrates birthday with a funny tweet

Gigi Hadid celebrates birthday with a funny tweet

DUBAI: US-Palestinian model Gigi Hadid celebrated her 23rd birthday yesterday, a few days after she marked the birthday of a close friend in New York.
Hadid spent time in the Big Apple and stepped out to celebrate the 35th birthday of American reality TV star Tan France at his home in the city earlier this week.
A day before her birthday on April 23, Hadid took to Instagram to ask her fans to mark Earth Day, which lands on April 22.

She posted a photo of a forest with a caption that read: “I’m still just a (little) Taurus girl who finds so much happiness, contentment and inspiration when I take a minute in nature and look around.

“May we celebrate Mother Earth every day for all she gives and teaches us!”

In honor of her impending birthday, the fashion star took to Twitter on Sunday night to share a humorous message with her nine million followers.

“As we close in on midnight, I would like to share that my final meal as a 22-year-old will officially be Cocoa Krispies. Thank you for your attention.”

She has every reason to celebrate this year, as the star has been riding a wave of success that would make even the most experienced models nod their heads in approval.

A few days before her birthday, she unveiled her Vogue Japan cover — the latest in a clutch of coveted magazine covers that the young beauty has managed to nab.

“So happy and excited to share my @voguejapan June cover story!” she captioned one of the snaps on Instagram.

The cover image features Hadid wearing a high-collared leather jacket and sporting slicked-back hair, a bold red lip and minimal additional make-up.

For the inside pages, the model posed wearing various masculine, edgy outfits in a series of black-and-white shots. In one particular photo that oozed cool factor, Hadid was snapped wearing a leather jacket-and-trousers combination with a broad tie that would not look out of place in a 1980’s film about the perils of Wall Street — or on Donald Trump circa 2018.

Besides her fashion credentials, the model, who recently spit from singer Zayn Malik, is fast becoming known for her social media clap backs.

She made international headlines in February by discussing her weight loss and said it was the result of learning to manage her Hashimoto’s Disease, not because of an eating disorder or drug use.

The model sent out a series of tweets stating that she would no longer respond to comments on her appearance.

“I will not further explain the way my body looks, just as anyone with a body type that doesn’t suit (your) ‘beauty’ expectation shouldn’t have to. Not to judge others, but drugs are not my thing. Stop putting me in that box just because you don’t understand the way my body has matured,” she said on Twitter.
