Primark Winter 2011 Collection

Primark just gained another level in my must-visit retailers list because of the winter lookbook that’s just been released. Keywords for this collection are folk prints, heavy oversized knits, metallics, embellishments, blacks & feminine tailoring.

This winter you can expect the return of the boho-look, cloaked in an opulent, yet modern setting. The long silhouettes consist of several layers with Victorian details, bell-shaped cuts and tailoring, completed with folk motifs, a lot of fur and rich autumn colors.

Black is an ever-classic color that’s found his way yet again to the Primark shelves. The clue here is to mix and match different textures and fabrics such as glossy, woven, knitted, leather or translucent. Combined with one of my favorite a/w trends –metallics– this is the look to go for when you’re hitting the town for a girls’ night out!

One of my favorite looks of this collection is the jewel shoulder jumper combined with the pleated midi skirt. Soft fabrics in bright colors just gain that little bit of modesty when combined with pieces in fading colors. On the other hand you can give an edge to the light, subtle skin tones by adding furs and heavy ornamentation.
