UNDERCOLORS OF BENETTON Spring/Summer 2012 Collection
Colour, coolness, comfort and creativity characterise the Undercolors collection for spring-summer 2012. Exceptionally feminine, bright and modern in its ideas for women. Moreover, a brand-new feature for the European market is the launch this season of ONE FITS ALL, a new range of super-comfortable underwear in a single size. An innovative cotton yarn adapts to feminine curves and, as the name says, one size fits all! Seeing is believing!
Garden Party – Flowers, stripes and checks in mini and maxi versions, even matched together. Then lace and broderie anglaise for the basic styles of intimate apparel: cropped vests, chaste bras, panties and shorts, and all tenderly feminine. Materials are made for comfort: stretch or non-stretch soft cotton plus lots of microfibre and poplin for sleepwear. The colours are pastel hues typical of meadow flowers.
Happy Hippie Life – Basic articles in blazing colour and vibrant patterns in different sizes. Just like our dreams, our sleepwear is filled with black-and-white photo prints with brightly coloured details – for the whole family. And all in practical cotton jersey and microfibre.
Color Block – Not simply colourful bikinis and one-piece swimsuits but a creative mixture of brilliant, plain colours for each piece: matching inserts, piping and details in strong contrast. Not forgetting flowers and stripes with beach wraps and dresses in tonal or complementary shades available in jersey and Lycra.
Safari city – Tropical vines and blooms, geometric tribal motifs, ethnic touches and urban chic: civilisation and nature launch into a possible dialogue and inspire a range of stunning one-pieces and teeny-weeny bikinis matched with linen or cotton mesh and openwork knitted beach robes. Basic colours with shades of purple and lime.
Punk – Black. Indeed, ultra-black for a dark lady on the beach, pure seduction in a brazen bikini with large and small glittering sequins, mesh and openwork. In addition to black there’s an immaculate white version that makes punk vibrations immediately fade into radiant elegance.
