All Saints Clothing SS12: Thoughts?
I was wondering what people thought of the newest range of clothes from All Saints.
To be honest, I'm a bit underwhelmed by most of it. The quality of their clothes seems to be on a downhill spiral. They've traded merino wools for 'luxurious' cottons, with the adjective clearly in use to make up for the apparent cheapness. I can't see anything that I would go out and buy today in their knitwear section: those loose-knits are just awful. Bring back the AW-10 collection! Even last years collection looked better than this one.
The new trousers/chinos are refreshing; albeit being similar to most on the market (of course the quality is a lot better).
Some of the new jeans don't look too bad either, although I miss the short-kicks.
Overall, I think All Saints could do a lot better. The lack of lookbooks this winter was a real turn off for me as well, as they had a plethora last year, most of which were excellent. They also had the lookbook videos too, which I wish they would have maintained. Any lookbooks they have produced recently have been horribly edited, which warps the colours.
Am I alone in these (perhaps harsh) opinions?
