SISLEY YOUNG Autumn/Winter 2011
Sisley Young chooses London as the background of its new collection for the young people who will lead the future. The story of an adventure experienced with a group of friends in one of the planet’s coolest capitals.
LADY BLACK – Black, of course, but with red accents for a more eye-catching look. Lots of denim and faux leather worn with T-shirts decorated with a “drip” effect or handwritten script motifs. The look is complimented with crocheted wool accessories.
GIRLY GIRL – For elegant little ladies who like to be chic and fashionable. Little dresses, tiered skirts and T-shirts are enriched with prints and appliqué lace. Gold details are emphasised through contrasting glossy and mat fabrics. And all in a range of delicate colours.
FASHION PREPPY – A preppy look with an on-trend twist is rejuvenated through the skilful use of bright colours and tartan. A modern fit gives new dash to classic styles like pea coats and short leather skirts.
PRINCESS OF ROMANCE – Dusty colours permeate the most romantic of the collection’s themes. Embroidered tulle overlay little dresses with a simple cut and a sophisticated look worthy of a princess. Frills and draping add further elegance, while soft knitwear embraces our little Alices in Wonderland in supple volumes and fluid forms.
COOL MOUNTAIN – The collection’s winter theme is warmed by a natural colour palette. Echoes of the military look is emphasised by trousers; the reversible bomber jacket is the capsule collection’s key item. Knits feature cabling and jacquard plus a “sprayed” effect.
AVIATOR WAY – Aviation is obviously the source of inspiration. Colours get cooler and the decorative motifs draw on the main theme of the narration. Everything is steeped in a vintage mood like the Madras-check outerwear, the tiny-check shirts and the short jackets in pure Red Baron style.
URBAN ROCK – An urban look, but with an edgier feel. Although black dominates the scene, dusty colours, rock-style photo prints and denim lend a softer touch. A crumpled effect gives a new look to the theme’s diamond-patterned knitwear.
