Press Preview: All Saints Autumn / Winter 2012
It's been a busy old time here at Catwalk Queen HQ, with everyone holding their Autumn / Winter 2012 previews within a matter of days. Alongside Matalan and Urban Outfitters, which we've shown you this week, we also popped down to check out what All Saints has in store for us next season.
Often thought as of a love them or hate them sort of a brand, when it comes to All Saints I'm in the first camp; in my eyes they can do no wrong. Their new Autumn / Winter collection, for those fellow fans out there, doesn't disappoint. As usual a wide array of styles, shapes and textures were on offer channelling their usual brand of relaxed casual cool. Going down a strong military route for Autumn / Winter 2012, their outerwear was a definite strong point; think various khaki toned shades in structured ultra-wearable shapes adorned with pocket, button and collar detailing. Shearling fur textures made an appearance on collars and gillets as did tartan draping.
Dresses and tops took the usual draped formation that we've come to expect from All Saints in loose knits and easy to wear jerseys. These were contrasted with the tough edged broken down leather textures we've come to know and love from the brand. Graphic abstract prints were threaded cleverly throughout the collection in complementary muted tones adding another dimension whilst evening wear took an ultra-embellished form in dresses, skirts, tops and clutch bags.
Check out the collection for yourself in the gallery above and let us know what you think in the comments below.
