Delivers an attitude driven uniform built from diverse and disparate elements.
(PRWEB) July 26, 2012
AllSaints, the acclaimed British fashion brand known for its unique offering of sharp edge, directional clothing announce new products and styles for Fall 2012. For Fall 2012, AllSaints presents Nouvelle Vague - a new wave of cohesive, confident, committed Menswear and Womenswear that delivers an attitude driven uniform built from diverse and disparate elements. The collection displays a clear evolution and a deliberate contrast between precise simplicity and conscious provocation. It is a collection that is both un-apologetic and un-affected.
This fresh new attitude draws inspiration from clearly diverse elements whose collective impact, once creatively curated, is greater than the sum of its parts.
This July, AllSaints Womenswear presents iconic style, evolved. Cropped, high-waist miniskirts, oversized and form fitting clean black leather jackets and skirts. Footwear honors the past and is updated for the modern woman with the new icon boot ‘Jules.’ AllSaints Womenswear portrays gentle fluidity in fabrics, and is complimented by a blushed color palette of dusk pink, plum and amber, framed in jet black. Muted coquettish textiles team with strong bold lines, strict wools and bridle leathers to carve the sharp line of modernity.
For AllSaints Menswear, color remains a key driver for the collection. Jersey is backed with color and stripe, and chino continues in seasonally relevant shades. New wovens are introduced complementing the standard slim fit styles. Footwear takes an AllSaints approach to heritage silhouettes like the ‘Desert’ boot.
Fundamentally, this collection presents an effortless versatility and an evolved confidence in silhouette, fabrication and impact. It displays a committed intent to well constructed quality materials and craftsmanship - embracing both simplicity and sexuality, often in the same outfit.
Womenswear Highlights Include:
The Diaghilevi Dress was developed on the stand to create an effortless draped design. Gathering panels are used to create texture, and a fitted bodice with angled seaming works to form fit around the body. The Diaghilevi Dress has a signature AllSaints draped skirt.
