Evans Preview, Autumn Winter 2010Posted: April 27, 2010
Want to know what you’ll be wearing next season? Well lemme tell ya…..
Last week I was invited to attend the Arcadia (parent company to Evans, Topshop, Dorothy Perkins plus others) preview event for autumn winter 2010 and caught a glimpse of the collections that will be in store for us next season.
Next years key word- TEXTURE. It was everywhere and it was on everything from clothing to accessories and everything in between (not that there’s much in between but you know what I mean), in the form of heavy looped knits, fur, feathers and velvet. There was lots of black which we’ve seen a lot of over the past few winters and I was happy to see that some of the neutral tones of spring summer 2010 were still around, albeit in deeper, more intense, warmer hues.
Of all the brands on show, Evans was of course the one I headed to first and it didn’t disappoint. All the major trends were there including a gothic Twilight inspired range with all black ensembles highlighted with an abundance of metallic detailing and embellishments, lace, beautiful wool coats and scrumptious velvet including long velvet boots that were just LUSH.
Other looks on show…..
Also spotted fur-lined ankle boots- a definite necessity if we’re going to continue to have horrid winters, and the perfect accompaniment to…..
…… big knits and blanket style jackets.
One of my personal favourite stories from Evans was entitled Biba and featured vintage looks with floaty bead embellished dresses and fur collars on coats and jackets that reminded me of Gosford Park……………
I’m certainly not looking forward to next winter in general as I’m a certified summer person, but at least Evans is ensuring that when the zero temperatures hit again we won’t look anything less than superfab.
