Iconic unveils spring-summer collection
Dubai, April 25, 2011
Iconic, the fashion-lifestyle store in Dubai which is part of the Landmark Group, has unveiled its Spring Summer 2011 collection.
The collection is not only exotic but classic and undeniably fitting for the season. With plenty of all-white outfits and subdued pastels, the collections echo the changing moods and styles of SS’11 exploring prominent themes of ‘Nostalgia’ and ‘Colour Pops’ for women while men experience fashion with trends like ‘Summer Shady’, ‘Cargo Madness’ amongst others, a statement said.
Spring/Summer 2011 will not only be driven by trends created on catwalks but also individual style which will find flavour in colours, fabrics, patterns and silhouettes, it stated.
The collections features cotton and cotton/nylon blend fabrics in a range of colours including mint, coral, yellow, purple, lipstick red and hot pink which is very in the style of Katy Perry.
Chambrays, seersuckers, oxfords and piques are soft and washed, but not vintage. While denim is here to stay the fabrics are supple and all about comfort stretch. New Japanese inspired liberty prints, dense prints in floral or abstract forms and knits are featured in lightweight jersey or lace-like patterns, the statement said.
Patterns like paisley, polka dots and animal prints are of utmost importance to the season.
This season white makes a strong appearance in an unstructured easy-to-wear collection in soft crumpled fabrics. Chiffon in billowing volume, baby-doll dresses, rompers, high-low hemlines in floaty maxi-dresses, gypsy blouses and floor-sweeping breath-taking gowns will complete the wardrobe for the season, according to the store.
For men the ‘Mediterranean Resort’ makes a comeback in a capsule collection of familiar nautical and vintage-inspired resort shapes. While silhouettes and details have a traditional feel pleated volume, boat necks and double-breasted fastenings, print & pattern add the classic retro direction, it added.
Key trends for men emerge in the form of ‘Denim’ and chambray shirts which continue from last season but the new way to wear them is buttoned up all the way to the neck.
The cargo pant gets a makeover, in a wide range of fabrics including woven and acid-washed denim. ‘Biker Deluxe’ elevates biker-inspired looks where leather motorcycle and racer jackets are wardrobe essentials.
Accessories for the season include footwear, woven canvas and denim bags and belts topping the chart along with quirky jewellery in pearl set-off with jewels in various colours like cream, coral and light greys.
Footwear for women will come with weave detailing and denim fabrics in colours of creams, nude and taupe. Lingerie for women will include the season's hottest colours of black, fuchsia, soft pink, red and leopard.
The all exclusive Soho section of Iconic is topped with peculiar items ranging from gadgets including speakers, headphones, massagers available in neon colours and very innovative designs to trendy home décor including Neon Baroque photo frames, bling cushions and funky canvas art.
Funky design gifts are also available from UK brands like Suck UK, J-Me and Kikkerland.-TradeArabia News Service
