Oasis SS11 highlights

Hey All,

Hoorah! It’s February; the sales are officially over (be gone skanky sale rails) and all the shops are selling their new Spring / Summer ’11 wares. (See River Island SS11 highlights here).

Because vintage, clothing / style / everything when stratospheric last year, the high street seen to have hit back with hugely, vintage-inspired collections. And Oasis are no exception, calling their collections things like, Retro Knits, Clean 70’s, Roman Holiday (after the Hepburn movie) and Farrah (after Farrah Fawcett).

Here’s a few snaps…

‘Clean 70’s’

‘Farrah’

‘Retro Knits’, left – ‘Boho Chic’, right

‘Retro Knits’This look is in the campaign imagery, w/out the scarf and with fewer bangles, and it looks better really pared down. Baggy jumpers and shorts are doing it for me right now.

So because I can’t be in a room of clothes on rails and not try something on, I went for what in hindsight is a very typical Whisty choice. Though I was told I looked a bit bridal-y in it. But hey, I’d like to meet the kinda broad who’d wear a black hat to her wedding.

Anyway, I like it.

NB: The China Blue and Roman Holiday collections add a zip of colour to an otherwise very neutral / natural toned collection. Here’s a quick snap, not my bag, (far too clean-cut) but you may dig.

I’m taking me and my retro vocabulary off now…

Yours,

Whisty Xx

    Hi
    Sales are a nightmare!! I remember being part of a multi-shop chain and sale stock was brought in from manufacturers special for the big January sale and it was all rubbish. Then they brought in a law that an item could only be called a sale item if the merchandise was on the shop floor at higher price longer than 21 days.
    My site does not have a sale as I could not sell any lower than I do. 12 month sale!! I buy from well over 35 manufacturers direct with no wholesaler in between so I can offer excellent price structure every day at Trudyaffair. Plus I have free worldwide shipping.

    However I do have specials and sell off at cost price but this is not faulty stock but maybe discontinued stock from manufacturers.

    Thanks
    Trudy

    How I love the time when the shops get filled up with brand new spring stock! The photos actually look like they were taken in a vintage store 🙂

    oh wow, oasis looks good for a change!! Used to love oasis when i was 15/16 but IMO it’s gone down a bit… but SS 2011 looks good! Might have to have a wee look in there the next time I’m near an oasis! (we used to have an oasis near me but it closed down due to the R word… damnit!) x

    Yes I noticed vintage dresses in photos a lot last year, from the Golden Globes to the First Lady. It did seem to take off, so I’m interested to see if it continues this year too.
