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.
