Looks of summer 2013-A A +A
Friday, March 1, 2013
SPRING Summer 2013 at Dorothy Perkins embraces three key looks, showcasing sporty graphic daywear, soft pretty occasional and vintage western casual wear – with trend influences from across the globe.
The sport luxe is revived this season with geometric prints and a bold color palette. Clean and crisp lines and minimalistic shapes are key with loose fitting tees paired with sharp tailored pieces in hues of turquoise, blue and white. The bomber jacket and tailored jogging pant are must haves – whether in block color or printed.
Be sure to stand out in the Dorothy Perkins dress of the season – a geometric print, body contouring dress – designed to accentuate your shape.
For occasion we embrace all things sweet and innocent. Beautiful texture is the key to this with combinations of broderie, lace, appliqué, jacquard and sheers. Fresh whites mix with pretty pastels and prints are hand drawn and delicate to create ladylike chic look. The tailored skirt and trouser suit gets and update, and full skirts with clean shell tops create a flirty, feminine silhouette.
Western and Ethnic influences combine for a relaxed, easy to wear casual collection. Landscape, feather, tile and snake prints are mixed with washed cotton lace and denim.
The back, white, khaki and neutral palette receives an injection of colour with pops of red, tangerine and soft corals. Floaty maxi dresses and tunic tops make for the ideal weekend style fix whilst denim gets an update with Navajo inspired prints and embellishment. Footwear embraces the Western with fringed sandals and studded courts.
Dorothy Perkins is located at the Ground Floor of Abreeza Mall in Davao City.
