Edgy British fashion house Preen by Thornton Bregazzi brings vintage-bohemian – meets – urban punk in their pre-fall 2014 collection.
How does that combination even happen? Well, knowing Preen, it’s not a surprising combination, nor the chic result.
To let the aesthetic shine, the color palette for the collection is fairly simplistic. White, black, even navy, are used as basic neutrals for more subtle pops of color via army green, bright orange, yellowish chartreuse, and even hints of shocking magenta.
One color combo that stands out is the pairing of navy and black with orange. The colors complement the structured jackets with floral motifs, blazers and dresses with clean lines. It’s juxtaposed with long loose dresses, pinched in slightly at the waist and flowing away from the body in an a-line shape. There are some knee-length and mini skirts, all with interesting asymmetrical pleats, zippers, patterns and textures.
Florals, lace, and birds are the main textural motifs in the collection. It helps foster the bohemian vibe, while the more structured pieces (and the oversized bomber jacket) bring home the urban flair.
The final outcome is uniquely British, and more importantly Preen’s unique vision of British fashion.
