AllSaints has launched their new collection for Spring/Summer 2012 with a diverse range of new season essential styles for Menswear and Womenswear. Shop the new collection in store and online at AllSaints.com

AllSaints have now launched their Spring/Summer 2012 collection with a diverse range of new season essential styles for Menswear and Womenswear. For SS12 the British fashion retailer introduces a collection of Mens and Womens styles that are pivotal to all wardrobes.

The launch comes with a fresh new feel for the season with the campaign being shot by globally renowned British photographer, Boo George. Showcasing the Spring 2012 collection are models Tony Ward, Claude Simonon, Kate Harrison and Sophie Dickens. AllSaints stay true to their ageless style by portraying the older and younger interpretations of the collection with the sole use of Ward and Simonon. This is a first campaign for the retailer that see’s the use of several models to convey the different design aspects of the brand, from edgy laid-back shots filled with that signature AllSaints attitude to the delicate feminine shots giving a softer contrasting perspective.

Each definitive new season piece has been developed by in-house designers and fabric technicians, to perfect the cuts and accents that embody the classic spirit of the brand.

Be inspired by the SS12 Womenswear collection, a directional and innovative range of pieces; including reptile influenced styles such as the Serpent Chelsea Boot and Vintage Serpent Court are made using authentic Snakeskin with a vintage effect – both styles are made entirely by hand by master craftsman.

Graphic Tee’s are focused around hand-illustrated prints that are made up of monochrome blocking and tribal elements. The graphite and discharge prints are highlighted with iridescent metallic foils for a shimmering effect. View the Womens Graphic T-shirts range.

Other recurring themes running throughout the collection include influences from the Ikat weaves in India. The Ikat print is dispersed across a range of Maxi and Mini Dresses, Skirts, Bikini’s and Summer scarves. Inspiration is also derived from Native American artwork, with designs hand-embellished onto eveningwear, premium Bikini separates and the signature densely hand-embellished Mini Dresses and Skirts that AllSaints is renowned for.

Paying reference to London and the local Spitalfields area, AllSaints this season, have adorned luxurious Cashmere Knitwear and incredibly soft Lambskin with Pearly Kings and Queens motifs that are hand embellished using traditional Mother of Pearl rusty buttons and sequins.

The Menswear range embodies the classic spirit of AllSaints with authentic textures and contemporary silhouettes for the modern Man. This season, the Menswear Design team have developed complex garment patterns, large scale prints and worn-in washing techniques to perfect the deep stone tones, durable waxed textures and streamline silhouettes of the collection.

Printed Shirting is a key staple to the collection with large-scale discharge prints featuring the classic Moth print and Hawaii inspired floral motifs in the Rockpile L/s Shirt. These styles have been given a heavy bleach launder for a vintage finish and soft hand feel.

A focus on texture and construction are key to the Men’s Knitwear SS12 collection, placing a heavy emphasis on this season’s colour and pattern blocking technique. Expect to see loose net knits and two-tone textures that are perfect for versatile layering with a distinctly premium appeal. The Gridd Crew and Hoodie are made using a linen blend yarn in an all-over open stitch and are finished with a ribbed hem, cuffs and collar.

New Jewelry Line Ready to Launch its Fall 2011 Collection

Introducing Leuer a new fashion brand that is ready to introduce its new fall 2011 jewelry collection. Featuring Egyptian style glam pieces that will go perfect with any outfit, whether dressy or casual. The seven piece debut collection features necklaces, bracelets, earrings and a ring. It combines edgy designs that are softened with bright sparkling gemstone and a high polish finish that gives it a distinctive look.

Leuer was founded by Ashley Gordon, in May 2010. “I started sketching different designs of jewelry and was impressed with the outcome, so I decided to have them made and I loved the way they turned out, that was when I knew that I was on to something” says the owner. She later set out on a mission that would enable her to capitalize on her new found passion.

Leuer will most likely appeal to females who like to stand out, and those who tend to be very individualistic. The purpose that we wish to accomplish is to assist these individuals with expressing their fashion style with our jewelry. These individuals are between the ages of 18-40 and are fashion lovers that are willing to experiment with different styles.

Leuer is expected to expand in the coming years to not only jewelry but a fully fledged lifestyle brand. You can shop our current collection online at http://leuershop.com/.

Kate Moss Topshop Christmas 2009 Collection Launches October 29 2009

The collection presents an assortment of luxurious yet sophisticated oriental-inspired pieces for day and evening festive wear, along with an exclusive lingerie preview online.

Influences of traditional Chinese and Japanese clothing run through the collection. The Cheongsam dress, normally made in embroidered satin is brought up to date in a gunmetal lurex knit whilst kimono shape dresses in chiffons and silks offer a sensual laid-back style. The sleeves on the ‘Geisha Rose’ print blouse are voluminous and bell-shaped. Prints of bamboo, flying stalks, lotus flowers and fireworks are flamboyant reflecting the richness of the orient.

Knitwear is given glamorous details, offering comfort and sparkle for winter dressing. A soft grey cashmere tunic is dressed up with a silver beaded obi belt whilst two classic knit crew-neck jumpers in slate grey and navy are spruced up with jewelled shoulder pads stitched to the outside of the garment. A series of lurex-striped shrugs and sequinned knit waistcoats when worn over a casual outfit add instant night-time luxury.

The black rectangular jagged sequin bandeau maxi dress epitomises festive party-wear mixed with Kate’s signature rock-n-roll style. Elsewhere a traditional floral beaded long sleeve dress is one-shouldered and the skirt of a strapless mini dress is covered in black mesh petals and gold beads. Snake print leather obi belts wrap around smart dresses and ostrich feathers adorn the sleeves of a shift dress.

Continuing from the previous season, Christmas embraces chic, smart tailoring. An exquisite satin pencil skirt in navy or black is asymmetrically buttoned down the front and a black grosgrain boat neck shift dress is the ultimate in ladylike dressing. A shrunken Victoriana jacket with frogging and cornelli detailing is easy to wear, and a jacquard Princess coat with jewelled buttons stands out from the collection.

Underwear makes a prominent return this season, with the debut of nightwear and an exclusive online preview of the new lingerie range. Beautiful printed chiffons in triangle shape bras and teddies are feminine, whilst a leopard print balcony bra with an eyelash lace trim has instant sex-appeal. Floral printed silk pyjamas are adorned with an embroidered ‘K’ and come with a drawstring bag in the same material making it the perfect gift for Christmas.

When asked what the inspiration was behind the new nightwear collection, Kate said: “I love beautiful nightwear, it makes you feel great. I’ve collected millions of vintage slips, nighties, camis and bed jackets. Who doesn’t want fab nightwear for Christmas?”

Christopher Kane Returns This Season With His Third Collaboration With Topshop

The landmark collection, which is 39 pieces strong, will be the largest Topshop Boutique collection with a designer to date.

Echoing his AW09 collection Kane’s fusion of manmade embellishments creates a subversive look. Body conscious pieces in fine black gauze form the back bone of the collection and are embellished with mirrors and eyelets. This adornment features on several pieces including 50s inspired briefs which are high waisted and worn as outerwear, slim fitting leggings, a slick long sleeved dress and a high necked body with cap sleeves.

Simple garments are given an element of luxury; a black cotton shirt buttons-up to the collar to expose oversized black gems covering the neckline, a white T-shirt dress features several rows of oversized white opaque gems around the neck, sleeves and hem of the dress. Evening dresses and camisoles have a deep V to accentuate the décolletage and feature oversized jewels around the neckline. A heavy black jersey scarf is adorned with gems along the perimeter updating a winter essential.

For this collection Christopher Kane also debuts a footwear and accessories collection creating pieces which are suitably both modern and romantic. Slouch leather pouch bags are oversized and can be worn with a cross body strap, covered entirely with tiny mirrors, the bag features two large leather tassels which hang from the base of the pouch.

Rachael Proud, senior buyer for Topshop said: “What Christopher Kane has done with this collection is a really new thing for Topshop – in both the size of the range and the production of it. It’s such high spec, such high quality and I really think if you saw it on a catwalk at London Fashion Week it wouldn’t look out of place. It’s got amazing elements of past collections but the new mirrored dresses and opaque gems on other styles just look so amazing.”

French Connection Has Revealed The Details Of Its Menswear Range For Autumn/Winter 2009

The season starts off with a prison story, presenting styles and details with a heavily distressed penitentiary influence. The collection then moves on to revel in a horror theme where colour, texture, and print work symbiotically to convey the move in to darkest winter. Finally, the range leads in to Christmas with a colourful and kitsch mountaineering inspired collection guaranteed to get you on the go.

French Connection enters the season with a nod to 1930’s workwear. Soft powder pinks and Oxford blues are complemented by micro spots and stripes and vintage bib or removable collar detailing. The mood darkens with the introduction of the Gothic, including Beetlejuice striped shirts, motor jackets in leather, or a maroon wool suit with white tipping and buttons. The mountaineering story provides technical down-filled removable linings, ropes and toggles, paired with fashionable gingham shirts and covetable knitwear.

Lorna Perrin, director of marketing and PR at French Connection, said: “For French Connection menswear we have focused on preppy chic blazers and shirts, while knitwear is given original design twists, and tailoring is fashion forward in quality fabrics and designs. The younger FCUK sub-brand leads the way in stylish streetwear with checked shirts, authentic denims, fun graphic tees and battered leathers.”

FCUK presents vibrant street sportswear with highlights of ‘pop’ colours. Bold dark wash denim and a base monochrome palette are livened up with bright piping on baseball jackets and bold prints. Bright colours prevail with hip-hop style retro track tops and alternative windbreakers with multi seams and jersey collars.

French Connection’s other main line, FC72, this season focuses on heavy detailing to liven up staples such as a cotton donkey jacket or denim dungarees. Overdying, paint-splattering, crushed knits, and heavy stitching all lend to a distressed penitentiary feel, solidified with a fun barbed wire stripe print. The season ends on a softer note, with brushed cottons and cosy bright chunky knits with fairisle detailing.

French Connection is also placing a high emphasis on men’s accessories this season. Men’s bags are the main focus, but a complete collection of ties, hats, cuff links and leather belts are also available.

About French Connection
French Connection was founded in 1972 by Stephen Marks who set out to create well-designed men’s clothing that would appeal to a wide audience.
