High street fashion favourite AllSaints have today released their spring/summer 2012 collection both online and in store. In a campaign shot by photographer Boo George, models Tony Ward, Claude Simonon, Kate Harrison and Sophie Dickens sport the collection’s key pieces. True to the AllSaints image and spring/summer season, the campaign shots appear light, fresh and minimalistic in approach – with the models captured and portrayed in a relaxed yet distinguished manner.
The collection itself offers everything you need for the upcoming season, without ever veering off the track as far as trend and style are concerned. A varying display of lightweight knits, textured sweats and statement print tee’s become particularly appealing when delivered with the trademark rustic tones of AllSaints designs.
Key pieces in the collection include the Kansai blazer. With a refined cut and deep indigo creased finish, the piece becomes an instant must have when considering this season’s focus on double breasted fastening. Other notable items include the superbly finished full leather Coleman Tote and the Rockpile L/s Shirt, which features a bold floral print delivered in summery bleached blue tones.
When pieced together the collection forms a look that remains work wear inspired. However, through the use of floral prints, soft leathers and contrasting checks and denims, the brand have seemingly delivered a modern twist on textures and styles reminiscent of a hazy seventies summer. With this decade in particular heavily influencing the fashion trends set out for the year ahead, it appears AllSaints have created a clean collection that combines this subtle seventies influence with their distinct representation of British heritage and workmanship.
