I don’t know about you but I go through these mini, trend phases. For example, at the beginning of the week I was completely into wearing black and white; last week was all about brights and colour blocking. It seems the end of the week has filled me with the want to wear neutrals.
The Warehouse SS11 preview was held yesterday, and I was immediately drawn to the crisp cottons, simple silhouettes and subtle shades of their ‘New Neutrals’ story. It was one of three that was showcased, and colour-wise it comprised, subtle shades from mid-brown to lightest blush-pink, and lots of white.
Rather than the usual tired pastel colours in frilly floaty fabrics, these New Neutrals are more about classic silhouettes and pieces that will serve to lighten and complement the rest of your wardrobe. NB: I loved the shell-hem cotton shorts.
There were two other stories pulled together for the preview; one a strong, vibrant holiday story and the other, a more subtle, tribal/ festival story.
If there was ever an argument for having a tan, then that collection is it. The next photographs are a little on the shoddy side as I had to use the flash, but you get the idea.
Unfortunately the snaps I took last night, don’t really do the collection justice: I’ve posted a few press shots to give you a better idea.
