New Look’s Spring 2010 range is set to storm the High Street.
Whenever I go to Press Day’s it just reminds me how great the British High Street is.
My favourite range was Blush. A gorgeous mixture of nudes, peach, creams, pale blue and grey. Delicate materials were key with lace, lace and more lace.
I loved the soft layering in this range, which featured a mix of textures from fine knits to sequin embellishments.
The Mash range has a harder, more military feel to it and seems very much Balmain-inspired.
There is a whole lotta khaki here along with epaulettes, distressed denim and combat trousers.
I just love the distressed look, especially slashed t-shirts (without the Balmain price tag!)
Next came Idol, a range for the rock star in you. The palette here is dark, mostly featuring greys and blacks. Studs and Chains are a-plenty.
Glam Athletic did exactly what it said on the label. This was sports luxe at its best. I loved the aztec prints in this range and thought their use of bright yellow and florals was just love.
Sicilian Siren came next with black and red being the main theme. I loved this range for its use of fringing and crochet. It should somehow be too much in places but it’s not.
I will be at the front of the queue for one of the structured jackets in this range.
Cowboy Crinoline will be the range to inject some fun into your wardrobe next season. Cute ruffle skirts and embroidery Anglais stole the show here but I’m also in love with the floral pieces seen here too. As you might have guessed, denim and white are seen most predominately in these peices.
Global Pirate is this season’s most eclectic range for New Look. It features a variety of pieces from a string dress to embellished jackets and harem pants. There is no obvious theme here, with anything from acid pinks to colourful bold prints.
The cupcake range looked good enough to eat. I loved the cute polka dot dresses, which should soooo be worn with the cardigans from this range.
I love the colour palette here, which consists of dusky pinks, cream, black and grey. The trench coat in this section will make a fab transitional coat for the Spring season.
Giles Deacon carried on his collaboration with New Look with Gold by Giles. The black and white sequin dress with the sweetheart neckline is to die for.
Overall the range is great. It is well known that New Look is THE place to go for High Street shoes and it seems in no danger of letting that crown slip.
Accessories also hit the right notes and I’m especially keen on the larger bags, which really suit the more casual tone of this collection.
The ranges will be staggered in slowly over the season but the first pieces will be available to buy in store from late January.
