7 For All Mankind Women’s Fall/Winter 2013 Press Day
Another brand that I was very excited to see during the press days was 7 For All Mankind. I am a big fan of the brand and this was my first time seeing the brands up coming collection in London. I got to see both the men’s and women’s collections, so I have split them into two posts, featuring the women’s first in this post here.
I will talk about my favourite pieces first, the ones that stood out and really caught my eye, those were The Skinny in Peacock print which you can see above or in gallery images 9 and 10. The print itself was actually quite dusty and muted so the peacock wasn’t too intense. I’m unsure if I would have liked them to be a little bolder or if I prefer them muted as they are more wearable, but either way they were beautiful!
I also loved the purple and orange print in image 15! The blurred out dots in 16 and 17 as these were actually really crazy on the eye, the image looks blurry, but it was actually the dots, almost like a lot of colours splashed onto wet paper that merged together and a classic that was my favourite was image number 1, I really liked the simplicity of the blue!
In terms of an overall collection, they literally had everything. They had denim, distressing, classic colours of blues, greys and blacks, corduroy and some metallic coated corduroy, leather, pants, a huge amount of prints and colour, embellishments on the jeans and jacket like in images 4 and 5, baroque, velvet style fabric and of course lots of outerwear and knitted garments.
I was really impressed with just how much 7 For All Mankind actually incorporated into this collection as there is literally something for everyone! In terms of the regular denim though, the colour palette was mid to dark blues mostly with a few grey and black shades mixed in here and there. Some of the gold and metallic shades remind me so much of the winter holidays! What do you think of the new collection? You can see the images in the gallery below and as always if you have any questions just comment and let me know!
