Note from Fran:Don’t miss my Europe Retail Report on London and Paris Spring 2011, where I’ll show you lots of photos and speak to the trends in color, new looks, and key items.
LONDON AND PARIS IN FEBRUARY….WHAT I LIKED BEST!
Solid Blocks of Color
While there were plenty of great neutral presentations, I do feel the amount of colorful color overtook neutral. What I loved was the merchandising of solid blocks of color together in a simple way.
Soft and Silky –And, a Return to Wovens!
Soft silks and silky synthetics created a whole new aesthetic especially for the tops worn with jeans. Lots of supple, washed charmeuse and crepe-de-chine made for new woven T’s, tanks, and shirts.
