Dorothy Perkins Announces New Collection Designed By Olivia Rubin

Dorothy Perkins has revealed the launch of a new collection entitled ‘A Postcard From’ by London-based designer Olivia Rubin. The collection will appear exclusively in Dorothy Perkins’ top 25 stores and online.

‘A Postcard From’ is inspired by Olivia’s memories of her travels and aims to evoke a mood of summer fun. The new collection will include dresses, tops, swimwear and accessories, all featuring Olivia’s signature prints. In addition to its bright pink shades, the collection’s colour palette includes neutral tones of grey and pastels. With these soft colours expected to make a big splash in SS12, the collection represents a fresh, young point of view that’s very much on-trend.

Known for her distinctive prints, Olivia brings her signature patterning to the collection. It includes an array of jersey with blush-coloured shells, bikinis and beach bags with bold coral designs and chiffon maxi dresses with tropical bird prints.

Olivia’s collection also features many of her signature silhouettes, which have been seen on a range of popular female celebrities in recent years. The collection is aimed to flatter every woman, with sizes ranging from 8 to 18.

The collection is also an opportunity for fans of Olivia to wear her looks at affordable, high street prices. The accessibility of the range and the inclusion of versatile accessories is what has excited Olivia most about the collection.

Olivia commented on her collection: “I’m so excited to be working with Dorothy Perkins and to bring my designs to the high street. The collection focuses on strong yet simple silhouettes, as I always design feminine shapes with an original take, in order to create a versatile piece that can become a wardrobe staple. Also I have introduced jewelry and swimwear to the range, which will be the first time I have added accessories to one of my collections.”

Topshop Introduces New Jonathan Saunders Collection For 2010

Topshop, the high-street fashion giant, has announced its partnership with the colour and print master Jonathan Saunders is to continue into 2010 with the launch of a new 2010 denim and devore collection, hitting Topshop stores at the end of January.

Geometric shapes and block colours run throughout this five-piece collection. A denim pencil skirt and matching cropped strapless basque are in panelled denim dyed in three different jean colours, ideal to be worn together, but can also be styled to great effect apart. A geometric devore grid design runs down the full length of a black body-conscious full length dress, a sweatshirt and a loose-fitting jersey tee, great for relaxed urban living.

Scottish born print designer Jonathan Saunders graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1999 with a BA in Printed Textiles, going on to graduate from Central Saint Martin’s in 2002 gaining an MA with distinction in Printed Textiles. Jonathan joined the New Gen scheme for three seasons 2004-2005, sponsored by Topshop, which began their working relationship. Following three seasons showing in New York, Saunders has recently returned to London.

One of Saunders’ trademarks has been his use of traditional silk screening techniques, developing the concept of engineering prints around pattern pieces. Whilst print is still integral to his designs, more recently he has focused on the development of an architectural, clean form, perfectly displayed in his devore jersey pieces for Topshop.

Jonathan commented: “My collection for Topshop this season has been inspired by sportswear and workwear, as well as the bold and graphic shapes of the Memphis movement. It’s perfect for urban city dwellers”.

The new collection is Jonathan’s fourth for Topshop and will be available through selected stores: Oxford Circus, London Selfridges, Liverpool, Manchester Arndale, and online at Topshop.com.

maternity clothing stores among Santa Barbara’s bevy of boutiques, and thus — Due Maternity was conceived.
