Ladies Capsule Collection
AW16 Ladies Capsule Collection
The Autumn Winter 2016 Ladies capsule collection is a mixture of trend led pieces and timeless classic’s which will hold their value in this fast fashion world we live in. I wanted to create a range that held its value and that the wearer would want to wear again and again for years to come.
Colour palette kept neutral and sophisticated and of course feminine. I wanted the consumer to feel above all very feminine in this collection. Almost creating a lifestyle brand aimed at a slightly older customer from 28 to 45, a woman who wants to look and feel great everyday but also has a very busy lifestyle so her wardrobe must work as hard as she does. Be it caring for her family or working long days in the office leading into the night as a part of her successful career, as more and more women are able to have it all in both their personal and professional lives she needs clothes to fit into this busy new lifestyle as she still wants to look chic, feminine and hot!
This really is every woman’s must have pieces that no wardrobe should be without, from the silk gathered oversized blouse which can be worn with her dropped crotch boyfriend shape jeans and styled with simple elegant gold jewellery and Nike Air Pegasus 83’s in simple black and white. The roll neck knit dress, which can be worn on its own or with the simple pencil skirt for a classic layering piece along with some stacked ankle boots. The bomber jacket has become a staple and should be in everyone’s wardrobe in textured jersey but we are seeing this shape in an array of fabrics and colours with embellishment and embroidery something to really have fun with sat with a midi length skirt with asymmetric spilt one could pair this simple outfit with a classic grey marl tee something that is imperative in every wardrobe. The simple fitted blazer along with the metallic full length skirt with splits and stitch detail gives a nod to the 70’s trend which simple isn’t going away thanks to Gucci!
For a little more formal look I have a structured wool top with high waisted trouser with an inverted pleat detail in heavy velvet fabric. A beautiful metallic brocade dress with a fitted top section and gathered skirt with pocket detail dressed with classic Laboutin’s for a fail-safe look. Of course the trophy piece of every wardrobe the double-breasted wool overcoat simple styling fitted feminine look would work well in either camel, charcoal, navy or black.
Also we have a wool blend tweed mini dress with functional button detail can be worn with heavy tights and boots or new balance trainers for a nice day look and finally a cropped top with corded guipure lace detail at the neck, cuff and hem worn with silk crepe de chine wide leg pants slightly cropped pair with some killer heels for an alternative evening look, and of course this being a capsule range you can really have fun with mixing the pieces up as they all work so well together.
