An exotic nod to high summer 2012
Vivid colours and light as a feather glamorous outfits say welcome to the summer season. John Lewis’ new Collection ‘Weekend’ has landed on planet fashion ensuring this summer you dress to kill.
The second offering from its brand new collection maintains the French chic and preppy influence, which proved so popular when it first arrived in February. Flirty floral patterns in a colour palette of grey, pink and, yellow, and exotic motifs gain importance, while schiffli dresses in crisp white or pillar box red are sure to become the staple summer outfit.
Jo Hooper, head of womenswear buying at John Lewis says: “For an on trend day time look, our skinny denim crops in shades of pink, aqua and cobalt provide an injection of colour. Teaming these with a cotton slub pocket t-shirt in flame red or striking teal will embrace this season’s colour block trend.”
With quality and fashion still of upmost importance to the collection, peg leg trousers in stone or white linen are an essential item for hot days or balmy nights.
Highlights include 60s silhouette shift dresses and luxe t-shirts in light summer silks. Classic style strikes back in high quality linens, cotton sateens and printed silk crepe-de-chines, all in saturated colours.
Tropical designs and animal prints are the best choice for swimwear this summer. For the ultimate beach chic style, 50s pin-up swimsuits are the must haves.
The chino shorts in chalky pistachio and stone have been given a fresh and playful summer update in a shorter length, taking you into summer in style.
