ALEX & ANNA. NEW COLLECTION Blanco sets the tone for the change in season with key Street Style styling.
Madrid, July 8th 2011
With Autumn just around the corner, and resisting the approaching end of summer, the interplays of colour and the presence of multistripes continue to define the mid-season outfits.
The Canadian Alex Loomans and the Russian Anna Gushina are presenting a collection in which trend-setting and basic garments combine.
Anna is putting forward a collection which is soft in forms, feminine in details and chic in contrasts. Against a backdrop of sturdy, elegant wood, the bourdeaux, mustard and emerald green tones define the colour range of the new collection.
Knitwear has become a must for the coming autumn. With drop needle stitching versions or in compact knitted jerseys and cardigans, this material which is austere par excellence becomes a key element to counteract the importance of other richer and more delicate textures. This time the denim has run into a strong rival in terms of presenting a relaxed look and lending touches of style.
As was to be expected in an autumn packed with glamour and masculine touches, in the start-up to the collection there simply had to be high collar shirts and a bow, feline prints or the combination of a blazer with shorts.
This time, Blanco is putting forward a limited selection of accessories for each look. The accessory must be an elegant item to round off outfits with charm.
Alex’s looks are college inspired. Without actually being a sporting style, the trends are set in the more informal atmosphere of the campus and present functional, comfortable garments.
This autumn the nylon bomber jackets are once again the most colourful pieces in the collection along with the trousers, chinos and jeans which are dyed in vibrant colours.
The knitwear, also the star in the male wardrobe, proves, in turn, far more sober and, along with the classical blazer, shares the purpose of formalizing the look.
