Vibrant and soft muted colours are subjective of spring and summer vibe essentially of personal styling, simple shapes and surface detailing balances the message of loud and quiet colours.  This is why Benetton spring summer collection are always tastefully tailored to customer’s needs, like myself I’m in awe of their deliciously bright citrusy colours, for us fans of colour we will have to wait until SS12 collection arrive on shop floor in Spring, THAT I cannot wait.

Press day nibbles.

 The elegance of womanhood

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: October 14th, 2011

British autumn has arrived at long last with rumoured of below freezing temperature and snow is expected to hit in Britain this month.

Freezing or not, don’t let the weather spoil our wardrobe plans, here’s Benetton a/w12 collection ‘The Elegance of Womanhood’. Benetton proposes soft-folk atmospheres with a modern, on trend attitude. New look animal prints are inspired by the delicately coloured feathers that see to settle lightly on shiny satin dresses, skirts and blouses. Soft shapes compliments the consistency of the fluid, comfortable fabrics, while maxi lengths conjure up sensations of the 70s. 

Printed knitwear and sheer georgette with the alternate style in python-skin pattern, feminine and sexy shapes with lots of draping and bust darts on soft-styled tops and trousers with bold accents. Satin and shimmer evening wear for asymmetrically cut tops, dresses and tunics printed with giant black and white roses. Androgynous tailoring of Prince of Wales check and herringbone, simple and well proportioned looks which is on trend this autumn as well as the little black dresses, cigarette pants and, above all, outerwear with tie belts.

Having seen the collection myself, I’m contemplating whether to invest myself a long pleated skirt.
