Here is a preview of the new Spring/Summer 2012 collection from Paige. I saw this collection back at the end of November in London, but it was too early for the photos to go up. I absolutely love the new seasons styles though! Paige has been brave and bold with her jeans and has ventured into more bright colours, prints and even tie-dye!
Her inspiration for the collection was different parts of America. The different washes and cuts are representative of places like the desert, the carnival, Los Angeles etc and you really get that feel when you look at it as a whole. The tie-dye Tumble Verdugo jeans are one of the best from this season! They will be online soon to buy and they are so funky! Deco Rose is also another favourite of mine! Even the guys have a whole range of coloured jeans! What do you think of the collection? I will be posting the actual Look Book soon, so stay tuned!
I got the chance to go to the Diesel Headquarters in London two weeks ago to see all of their new styles and learn more about the new direction they are taking the ladies collection in. Here are some photos from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection for both men and women.
The men’s collection is exactly the same, they haven’t changed anything except they have some new styles and washes like they do every season. They did have some really pretty washes there though. The washes are always what entice me when it comes to Diesel. I find they are experts in getting a really amazing colour and depth to their jeans. Sometimes they can bring out the most beautiful wash ever while other times they have normal shades.
The ladies collection is completely different now. Like I mentioned last week, the line is going in a new direction. They are only having 5 different cuts, soon to be 6, and those cuts are coming in different washes. The labels are different, they are more plain and the jeans are less embellished and branded. They are aiming for more simplicity and femininity. The shoes are all heels and sandals now and they are even doing maxi dresses. It’s changed a lot.
It’s very scary so I hope it does well for them. Luckily the Diesel strip on the coin pocket will always stay there. I know the guys are very fond of Diesel so let me know if you have any questions about the collection, like jeans or washes, and I will try and help you out. I also saw the Autumn/Winter 2012 collection which is even more amazing! I can’t share that with you yet though.
Here is a preview of the new Wrangler and Wrangler Bluebell Spring/Summer 2012 collection. I saw the new collection in London last week and there were definitely lots of new styles! They have a light wash denim jumpsuit which I think is so cute! I love it! They also have embroidered denim shorts, their classic jeans, lots of bright tops, and a range of mid to dark washed jeans as well. I think it’s great they are still doing dark denim for the Spring/Summer season, most brands opt for the light washes but I think they are going with what works best for them!
Here are a few pictures of what Topman and Burton have to offer for the Spring/Summer 2012 collections. The first 3 images are of Topman and the last 3 are of Burton. I took these from the Arcadia press day in London last week. They both had a lot of colour, especially bright bold colours like reds, in their new seasons styles and I am quite glad. I think men shouldn’t be afraid to wear colour, it shows confidence and it can look great when worn right. Especially the coloured denim or chinos.
