11th of September of this year, they just launched their A/Winter Collection in a exclusive event held at the Capsule Arts Warehouse in Dubai. The Russian influenced Babouska and the unique but simple New Model Army for womens.
For the Gentlemen, they taken the inspiration from Hot Rod Motorcyclists and the sophisticated charm of Downtown Abbey.
Absolutely marvelous event, kudos to New Look for their wonderful and successful launch and while celebrating the new trends indulged ourselves with delicious canapés, yummy treats, mouth watering finger foods and showered by Moet & Chandon Champagne, Corona Extra drinks.
Taking inspiration from the roaring 1920s and the acclaimed British drama Downton Abbey, this trend has a heritage and English-gent flair that oozes sophistication.
Incorporating New Look’s re-launched tailoring range, Downton has evolved and developed to be slick, smart and suave. Whether it’s top-to-toe tailoring or mix-and-match separates, this story guarantees an elegant, pulled together finish that has a traditional English feel with a current, modern twist.
Cottons, tweeds and pinhead fabrics are used throughout, with rustic herringbone, houndstooth and tartan patterns giving a nod to the great British outdoors. Oxford shirts are layered with printed knitwear, wool waistcoats, structured blazers and finished with a paisley pocket square and textured tie.
Details include suede elbow patches, jacquard bow ties and classic flat caps that complement smart, lace-up brogues and boots. The colour palette is rich and decadent, with deep burgundy, mustard yellow, moss green and slate grey.
Downton epitomises English heritage and style with effortless ease and class.
Hip Hop meets rock with the Hot Rod trend –it’s hard-edged and impossibly cool.
Leather bikers and bombers are a must-have, worn with washed black or sandblasted grey denim. Red is key and features on printed jerseys and striped knitwear. Conversational prints play a key role in transforming simple tees and jumpers – tattoo inspired graphics, leopard print and touches of paisley are all essential in giving Hot Rod its unique edge.
Predominately black, grey and white with accents of bright red and cobalt this colour palette is dark and daring. Studded rucksacks, slogan snap-backs, and contrast pumps allow this trend to lean on its accessories to inject the detail and the drama.
Hot Rod is about making a statement – the prints are powerful, the colour palette is intense, the textures are luxe and it demands attention.
