LONDON, 2015-2-3 — /EPR Retail News/ — Simplicity rules in Gok Wan’s new monochrome statement collection for Tu at Sainsbury’s, as fashion’s most timeless colour combination receives a fresh and modern makeover for Spring 2015.
The range takes inspiration from modernist architecture with a strong focus on shape and form. Styles are structured to create contemporary, cool and assertive looks that are reflective of urban cityscapes. Necklines are high and shoulders are rounded, illustrating a bold Bauhaus inspired silhouette.
Experimental graphic prints play an important role in the collection’s monochrome style story. Influenced by the catwalk, vivid black and white patterns exemplify a strong sense of confidence and high impact glamour. Stylised stripes contrast with geometric chevron patterns, whilst magnified windowpane prints add a touch of checkerboard chic.
Texture is also a key design focus for Gok this season. Subtle sports luxe elements are highlighted in the range, as matte and shine materials are juxtaposed with more technical, performance based fabrics such as light airtex and mesh paneling. The co-ord White Jacquard Shell Top and Circle Skirt are interchangeable pieces that can be mixed and matched for the office, or dressed up for a glam night out.
Although the crisp black and white colour palette is the centre piece of the new collection, beautiful hints of grey and pastel pink on items such as the Stripe Pencil Skirt and Long Sleeve Shell Top give add feminine touches that are perfect for spring.
The collection is underpinned by Gok’s trademark tailoring tricks and figure flattering styles and following on from the success of previous seasons, Gok has extended his denim offering for Tu. The range now includes a brand new high waisted interpretation of the iconic Perfect Skinny Jean, which are cleverly cut to lengthen the leg and offer high street style and quality at unbeatable prices.
Gok for Tu Collection 16 will be available at over 200 stores nationwide from 3 February. This new collection compromises of 30 styles, including multiple prints and colour ways. Prices range from £18 – £40 and sizes from 8-22.
