An Essentiel Winter 2012

Essentiel
Fall/Winter 2011-12

Who says that winter fashion has to be about dull greys and lifeless shades of beige. Essentiel revitalizes your Winter wardrobe this season with bold brights and fearless colour-block combinations. The Belgian fashion label has become a favourite of mine, as all their pieces retain that comfort factor while being youthful and trendy. 

For Winter 2011-12, Essentiel offers chunky knits in optimistic shades like sunflower yellow, cerise pink and tangerine. Their classically fit jackets in varying lengths are suitable for work-to-weekend wear. Stripes are seen on jerseys, woolly scarves, skirts and bags. Keeping up with worldwide trends, there is also a fair amount of coloured demin in this range. Trousers are high-waisted, tapered or cropped at the ankle. Essentiel pushes the boundaries of colour-blocking, teeming shades like red, yellow and purple together.

The collection wavers between masculine and feminine tailoring. Elegant blouses in saturated shades of coral and green are tied up with pussy-cat bows. Besides for the typical black leather jacket, try your hand at one in exotic emerald green. Basic shift dresses are belted and paired with contrasting coloured clutch bags. All the charming accessories you see are also part of the Essentiel range, including the mammoth furry bags, high-heeled moccasins, jewel-toned shoes, cute banded socks and gloves. This collection proves that being stylish and discernible does not require having any fanciful airs. It focuses on fashion that is more wearable and relaxed, with an update on basics and experimenting with playful pigments.

Denise said...

I agree with you! Winter is lovely, I really like it, but it doesn't mean it has to be only filled by beige, black, grey... I have turquoise, pink, red coats!
My favorite outfits were the pink/fuchsia jumper/sweater and the red coat - red is my favorite color!
Then the white pants with blazer and jeans with yellow sweater... soon (better tomorrow, but I have to wait a bit...) I'll go back to the UK and I can't wait to try these combinations on! Great choices and thanks for showing them here! In February you'll see me wearing the outfits inspired by Essentiel and you!
