Today there has been snow, and I have to say the appearance of the white stuff has got me thinking more and more about Spring. How I long for Spring – light nights, warm days, cut grass and daffodils, all things I love and dream about on these cold, frosty mornings. But as I can’t have Spring for some time yet, I will turn to the next best thing – Spring Fashion, with a focus on some of the most anticipated lines from high street fave New Look.
The New Look press day took place at the end of November, on a dull drizzly day. I felt a little unwell that day, and a double train journey hadn’t helped that, but the gorgeous clothes and accessories that New Look unveiled certainly helped to lift my mood. With collections entitled ’70s’, ‘Le Sportif’ and ‘Amazonian’ the new range has a variety of prints, fabrics and styles – from short shorts to maxi dresses.
This is the Spring/Summer collection, so special mention has to go to the eclectic range of swimwear that was a centre-piece to the press event. There were really unusual, two-piece suits that were as far away from a traditional bikini as it was possible to be. The accessories were also pretty amazing – New Look go from strength to strength in this area, and I particularly loved the glamorous, structured handbags that have a deal designer look and feel to them.
Here are some of the highlights from the collection, appearing in a store near you very soon.
Right, off to look at travel brochures now!
