new look a/w 2012 press day: accessories and shoes
My New Look Autumn Winter preview post was shaping up to be very photo heavy so I've decided to split it into to parts. One the accessories and shoes and the other the actual clothing collections. I have to admit I don't always go into New Look for clothes, I love their shoes and their accessories alot more than their clothing. I think they are fairly well known for their well priced and amazingly laid out shoe galleries!
The first thing that stood out to me was all the boots! As a massive lover of boots, especially in the winter my eyes instantly lit up! The Chloe dupes and the tapestry style boots were my instant favourites. Alongside alot of really lovely buckled boots with various studs and prints rather than plain black, brown and taupe. There were a few pairs of creepers, including leopard print ones and some lovely studded ones. The going out shoes were just as gorgeous as they normally are but with alot of unique touches like the "heels with out heels" shoes. I don't know what they are actually called, but similar to the Jeffery Campbell Nightwalkers! Alot of the shoes were highly embellished with crystals, studs and pearls which adds to the "luxe" trend that comes around in the winter.
I noticed there was a awful lot of collars amongst the Autumn Winter collection. Really lovely embellished, studded, textured pieces which could add so much to a plain top or simple outfit. There was spattering of rose gold pieces amongst the jewellery which I adored, thank goodness the high street has cottoned onto that trend! The clutches were very classic but highly decorated and really expensive looking. Rather than going for brights from the summer, most of the bags were very neutral but were textured or had something unique about them. I also had a quick look at the Giles for New Look makeup collection that looks pretty good, I couldn't touch it but I've seen some reviews on it on blogs and apparently it's so-so but some things are worth trying out!
All the items are NOT in store yet as this is the Autumn Winter 2012 preview, Some items might not make it into the store as all items photographed are samples. I presume things will start rolling out from the end of August
