NEXT’s Spring Summer Collection weaves intrigue and glamour

Published January 31st, 2008 - 07:44 GMT

NEXT’s new collection for spring summer is a delightful range of distinctive silhouettes, prominent prints, and compelling colour combinations.

“Our latest collection echoes the elegance of the 1930s and the bold glamourous appeal of the 1970s. Intriguing bohemian and neo-vintage themes take over, exploring adventurous ideas in shape, pattern, and palette. Key colour themes range from watery pastels to sophisticated earth tones with a fusion of olive, plums, taupe and teal and a scattering of reds and blues, “said Kevin Long, Marketing Manager, NEXT.

The captivating collection includes ruffled chiffon blouses with a seductive touch of glamour and sleek 1970s inspired tailoring.

Re-writing the classics are the great safari staples, including the trench and the shirt-dress, re-invented in gritty earth-tones or bold prints of olive and plum.

Flowing silhouettes in striking combinations of violet and sunflower yellow add a rustic charm. New longer-line smock, intricate embellishment, and crochet detailing add to the look.

The collection also features over-sized boxy shapes combined with innovatively cut jersey pieces for a fashion-forward casual themes. The textures are intriguing and there is a distinctive mauve-taupe-teal colour palette.

NEXT also features an eco-friendly organic cotton collection in subdued colours providing an ultra-wearable fashion choice with a tangible sense of conscience.

The new spring summer collection is available in over 50 NEXT stores in the region, operated through M.H Alshaya Co, a leading international franchise operator for over 40 of the world’s most recognized retail brands.
