The change of season calls for a wardrobe revamp and, with Centrepoint’s new Autumn- Winter ’17 collection, you’ll be stepping out with panache.
The store, which is the Middle East’s largest fashion retailer, encompasses well-known brands – Mothercare, Splash, ShoeMart and Lifestyle.
Own Your Fashion
Womenswear this year is largely inspired by the ‘90s – from grunge to cosmopolitan – with staple silhouettes. Splash features unusual textures and prints – camouflage, prairie and gingham – paired with key seasonal details, such as embroidery, ruffles and peplums.
The colour palette exhibits nudes and naturals, from rusty auburns and blush tones through to fuchsias and burgundy, with a focus on a spectrum of green hues.
Grunge luxe, sports nostalgia and extreme utility trends remain at the forefront for gents. Splash takes the dullness out of autumn with everything from bold red to ripe orange and hazard yellow. Mellower shades – olive, camel, baked pink and rust tones – contrast nicely with brighter tints.
Trends like exaggerated details, oversized proportions and washed silks with their military reference, are heavily featured. Eastern styling also remains an essential this winter, with subtle references such as kimono necklines worked into shirting and long line jackets.
Young ones, from two to tweens, can also find all their season essentials at Centrepoint. Mothercare’s line of Preppy Street, Floral Dreams, Hello Kitty and Barbie have popular girl-appeal. Boys can opt for a dapper range of Urban Geek, Grunge Rewind, Midtown Manhattan and Underground.
Made for Walking
You can rely on ShoeMart to complete your look and elevate the charm factor. It’s a nod to the ‘90s with gothic and rustic-inspired designs for ladies, alongside sleeker and minimalist options. Find ankle-length boots and highheeled sandals in earthy tones, as well as athleisure trainers and chunky platforms to complement the rugged look.
Purple haze and saddle brown work as rich base shades for men, with white, chartreuse and bold lilac adding a fresh, modern edge. The earthier tones give the stylish footwear designs a more seasonal feel.
The new assortment for kids is characterised by classics with a twist, colour blocking and soft urban tones, to achieve the retro geek or a sophisticated chic style.
It’s All in the Add-ons
Lifestyle has an array of new accessories to accompany every new fashion stance. Handbags from Charlotte Reid and Fiorelli boast a variety of designs and flattering colours.
Also available are several new haircare brands – Bedhead, Tigi, Big Sexy Hair and Toni&Guy. Make-up includes a variety of essentials including lip glosses, nude matte lipsticks, colour correcting palettes and more. Exotic fragrances from Heart & Home, Apsley and Millefiori Milano are definite confidence boosters.
Spruce up your home with décor from Lifestyle’s new brand, V1969. Youngsters can grab the extensive selection of funky, themed stationery and everyday merchandise.
