The hippy meets great gatsby

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: July 8th, 2011

Having already seen a couple of blog posts of the spring summer capsule collection on Spain and Italy‘s blogs, pondering when my turn will come. Luckily, a couple days ago my giant camera and I have managed to catch a sneak preview at Benetton’s flagship store on Oxford Street. The collection are already in selected United Colors of Benetton stores around the world.

The hippy meets Great Gatsby‘ is the theme for the final season of summer. Introducing relaxed styles of key pieces; oversized blouses, mini dresses, print tees, georgette dresses and skirts, impressive and surprisingly-feels-real (mock) leather trousers, feminine frills and oblique cutting for elegant occasional pieces.  The colours are dusty, warm, pale hues and subtle.  Various shades of blues and pinks hint at the autumn palette.

Pretty little collection. I can spot an ideal dress to wear to my brother’s university graduation ceremony next week.

Of course, press event at Benetton always provide little hospitality treats for journalists and bloggers for their busy schedules.
