One of my favorite brands in the WHOLE world has released its new collection and I got the privilege to check it out before it hit the shops!
This season at New Look we’re going Russian doll-esque, new model army, grunge & 70’s glam!!
Here is the low down:
Rich colours, sumptuous fabrics and decadent prints give our Baboushka collection folkish flair and rustic Russian charm.
Faux-fur coats are worn over delicate, embroidered blouses and teamed with washed ripped denim and a colour-block beanie for a snug and stylish look. Shearling lined bikers sit next to floral pussy-bow blouses, whilst heavily patterned knits are perfect with a peplum jacquard skirt.
Burgundy, teal and navy are key tones of this cosy, wintry collection. Prints and textures are layered up with accessories to create an opulent look that is rich in autumnal colours, luxurious textures and statement jewels.
Baboushka focuses on sumptuous knitwear, intricate embroidery and statement outerwear that is effortlessly stylish and loaded with luxe.
New Model Army
Sharp lines, structured shapes and classic cuts work effortlessly together to give new model army its unique simplicity.
Fabrics are luxe, silhouettes are clean and colours are powerful and bold. Delicate sheer sleeves with a hint of shimmer add a feminine twist, whilst faux-leather panelling on coats and jackets give an alternative hard edge. Quilting adds a sports luxe touch to the collection alongside graphic tees, giving new model army’s fashion recruits casual, off duty style with a premium edge.
Monochrome is key and provides a neutral base that works to make the accent colours – scarlet and cobalt – hyper pop. Prints are statement with daring leopard and graphic checks used to transform must-have staple pieces. New Model Army is essentially a collection of wardrobe VIPs reworked with indulgent textures, luxe fabrics and injected with a burst of colour or print. The concept is simple, the outcome is anything but.
A mash-up of hard-edged embellishment, bold print and tough texture gives Grunge a cool, carefree confidence. Leather pencil skirts, fishnet tights and distressed biker jackets give a harsh twist to feminine ditsy print dresses and oversized check shirts. Fur trimmed canvas parkas, textured cardigans and graphic print tees keep things casual and effortlessly edgy.
The colour palette is muted, lifted by florals and checks that are thrown into the mix. Studs, chains and spikes are key details that toughen up an outfit whilst a knitted beanie hat is perfect for pulling the look together.
This collection contrasts tough and rough with pretty, ultra-feminine highlights to capture the true spirit of 90s Grunge.
Going out is fun, fabulous and flash.
Think sequins, glitter and lots of bling – this collection is all about unveiling the inner diva. Trophy jackets transform a simple tee and disco pants automatically scream glam. Jewel colours sit alongside shimmering metallics whilst intricate beading and all-over sparkle create that ‘wow’ factor.
Classic blazers are paired with hero pieces, such as the embellished mini-skirt or bejewelled sleeveless blouse to give a crisp, sophisticated finish and a sculpted silhouette. More is more with Going Out which means accessories play a key role in completing any outfit. Statement necklaces, chandelier earrings and textured clutches are all perfect for adding a generous dose of shine.
70s glam is the essence of Going Out. It’s loud, it’s bold and it’s guaranteed to turn heads!
Boots are a big message for the season; from grungy bikerboots to cleaner knee-highs. Shiny detailing is key – metal heels, metal plating and toe and heel tips add a hard-edge to an all-together more grown-up collection.
Cut-out detail is a must-have transitional trend, evolving into multi-strapped sky high heels for the party season. Masculine detailing is still evident with loafers and brogues appearing on influential catwalks. Colours are striking, with fiery red, cobalt blue and flashes of textured metallics or rich jewel tones.
Jewellery makes a bold impact – we’ve gone more statement, more opulent and even more lavish. Necklaces have moved higher on the neck and are adorned with decadent gems and jewels whilst cuffs are a new direction for bangles with spikes and perspex adding a fresh feel.
The bowling bag is the shape of the season and is brought to life with colour-block panelling and metal features. Sporty silhouettes continue, with backpacks remaining crucial. Biker quilting, zip-edge details and grunge florals add a new dimension.
Clutches are on a larger scale, transformed with snake and croc textures, chains and metal plates.
