TRENDY AUTUMN WINTER LOOKS FOR WOMEN
Centrepoint’s A/W womenswear 2017 collection is largely inspired by the 90’s – from grunge through to cosmo aesthetics with staple silhouettes. The collection comes equipped with a variety of different pieces that will keep you on-trend during the cooler months.
The Splash collection features new textured clothing including popular camo, prairie and gingham prints, which have been combined with the key details of the season such as embroidery, ruffles and peplums.
The collection’s colour palette is a combination of earthy and natural colours from rusty oranges and blush tones through to fuchsias and burgundy. There is also a focus on green with a spectrum of shades including washed khaki hues and army green
Shoe Mart covers a range of fashionable female footwear styles. There is a nod to the 90s with gothic and grunge inspired designs, alongside a wide selection for those looking for something sleeker and minimalist. The collection also offers ankle-length boots and high-heeled sandals in earth tones, athleisure sneakers and chunky platforms to complement the more rugged styling of the season.
STYLISH AUTUMN WINTER LOOKS FOR MEN
Grunge luxe, sports nostalgia and extreme utility trends remain at the forefront for men this A/W ‘17. Bright colours and rich darks have also taken over this season with steel grey and uniform blue anchoring this season’s collection.
Splash makes a splash with its colour choices this season, from bold red, to ripe orange and hazard yellow, autumn doesn’t all have to be dulled out colours. Quieter shades such as olives, camels, baked pinks, and rust tones contrast nicely with the other brighter colours.
Exaggerated details, oversized proportions, and wash silks with their military reference are heavy trends that feature throughout the collection. Eastern styling also remains an essential this winter with subtle references such as kimono necklines worked into shirting, long line jackets and muted blue and denim palettes.
In Shoe Mart, purple haze and saddle brown work as richer base colours, whilst white bright chartreuse and even a bold lilac adds a fresh modern edge. The earthier tones ground the modern design of the shoes giving the collection a seasonal feel.
