We’ve had a rummage through last season’s best sellers and have fished out some new entries from some seriously far-flung Patrizia Pepe locations to put together the first Style Selection of the a/w 2010 Outlet.
There’s something for everyone and every kind of occasion… but let’s start with the things you can wear right away… given that winter, the full-blown one that is, is not quite upon us yet. Our favourite range… the one that we think is closest to this season’s hot trends (despite being last season)… is the Cotone Spalmato (coated cotton) one; the trousers match the evening top or sit perfectly with the romantic shirts; another option is to team them with a maxi sweater and commando boots. The dresses and skirt sit easier with flats, but should you decide to wear them with the eco-leather, over-the-knee boots… it might not be the best look for the supermarket, but they would be so, so right for a big night out, a hot date or some happy-hour afternoon cocktails!!
Then there’s the studded-up range that was like gold dust by the end of last season, but which continues to be the look of the moment right on trend with this season’s utilitarian feel… to be teamed with clean-cut jackets, maybe boyfriend style in stretch wool gabardine making it perfect for the evening, or as some gorgeous arm candy during the day, bringing some edge to your accessories. … just like Katy Perry … the morning after the MTV Europe Music Awards … do you remember? simple, statement, fashionable, but classy.
Finally, still available, well for now anyway, are several must-haves for sophisticated dressing every day, items that will bring some high-octane style to your wardrobe, singular pieces that will mix and match themselves or with your old favourites.. because they are so timelessly universal! The animal-print jeans team effortlessly with the most romantic, girly coats… the stretch-wool gabardine sheath dress that we just can’t stop saying how heavenly they look with heels, or even with boots high and low… or with the suede boots, smooth and utterly timeless for a truly feminine, sophisticated look with leggings, jeggings, skinny trousers or a’ la romantique with the dresses….
And that’s just for starters …..welcome back winter.
