Autumn/Winter Collection 2011
Australian brand Forever New has firmly established a huge fashion following in South Africa. Since the launch at the end of 2009, the franchise has successfully expanded, with 11 stores countrywide.
It is Forever New's romantic and youthful design aesthetic that captivates shoppers everywhere. Their Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection follows that same aesthetic, with pretty peaches and cream colours, divine dresses and warm winter essentials.
The 2011 collection has been inspired by the Oscar-winning movie, Black Swan and thearical ballet such as the Tchaikovsky classic, Swan Lake. The 'Enchanted Princess' range glamorizes winter basics with delicate lace, faux fur, scalloped hemlines and a mix of light and heavier fabrics.
The casual line of the collection, entitled 'Bohemian Rhapsody' features maxi skirts, chunky knits, lace shift dresses, faux fur gilets and 3/4 pea coats. Outfits were paired with different styles of hats, gloves, boots and neutral coloured handbags.
Wispy prom-style dresses in creamy whites and soft pinks drifted delicately across the runway. The cropped faux fur jacket is an ideal cover-up for chilly evenings. Peep-toe heels, pearls and clutch bags underlined the feminine look.
Most of the pieces can be worn as separates. The nude lace dress is teamed with a simple black belted coat. The metallic silver playsuit can be toned down with a woollen wrap or dressed up with printed stockings. The sheer pleated black maxi skirt is worn with an embellished white top and ballet flats. The grey jacket can be worn over dresses, tailored pants and skirts. The full black ensemble works well as both casual and formal wear.
Modern vintage meets glamour girl in the enchanting Forever New winter range.
