Arnotts S/S 12 – take a look

What better way to spend a cold Winter’s than looking at clothes for next season? I popped along to Arnott’s Spring Summer 2012 preview today and was greeted with an explosion of new exciting trends for the new season.

Anna Sui dress

Anna Suit Dress, €520

With a selection of new designers, including Anna Sui, Badgely Mishka (they already stock diffusion line Mark and James), Robert Rodriguez, Anderson and Lauth (latest design house out of Iceland), Gestuz, Twenty8Twelve and Victoria Beckham Denim. And with a new contemporary fashion area due to open in the not too distant future, the Arnott’s customer is in for a treat. And that’s just the clothes. Designer accessories channel trends like equestrian and heritage and adding new lines like Mary Katrantzou for Longchamp and the new diffusion line of bags from Zac Posen, I’m overwhelmed by the choice. All the accessories and shoes have been chosen to compliment the womenswear floor, making shopping for Spring Summer so easy.

Prints, colour, brocade, metallics, and a very grown up feel to the collections represent the Arnotts customer but will also make a younger market fairly happy.

Here are some of my favourite pieces which will filter into the store over the next few months.
