Avenue 32 key items for SS13
Spring is coming, which means that you’ll eventually feel the urge to pack away heavy coats and bulky sweaters. If you’re looking for brighter colours, lighter fabrics and chic pieces to make sure you’re on trend for the warmer months, Avenue 32 has everything you’ll need. Here are a few of our favourite picks for the upcoming spring and summer.
Lara Bohinc Gold Python Apollo Bag. This versatile bag pulls off the extraordinary feat of being both glamorous and minimalist at the same time. The surface is composed of distressed python skin in gold, making it a perfect match for any colour you choose to pair it with. In addition, it can be carried as an underarm clutch or a shoulder bag.
Mantu Ochre Diamond Jumper. Louis Vuitton and Moschino lead the pack of designers who revealed a retro summer look on runways recently, and this classic jumper is the perfect way to mesh nostalgia with the present. It is made of a silk and knit fabric, meaning that it will fall perfectly and effortlessly on any frame. Plus, the mustard yellow and ivory print is eye-catching and chic in every way.
J Brand Low Rise Olympia Leggings. A well-fitted legging should be in every fashionista’s closet, and once you try on J Brand’s newest pair, it will become a clothing staple. The low rise hip allows for a sensual silhouette whilst the flex denim pulls together your casual look. In addition to being perfectly shaped, they’re also softer than regular denim.
Mother of Pearl Grey Wool Kishi Sweatshirt. Here’s a way to do one of the season’s biggest trends whilst still feeling comfortable. In this twist on a graphic t-shirt, Mother of Pearl adorns its pressed wool top with a flower print from pop artist Gary Hume. If you’re looking for a cozy way to spend chilly beach evenings, this piece makes it easy.
Chalayan Pop Lime Tuxedo Jacket. Have a big night out planned but not sure what to wear? Following the spring/summer white out trend can make fashion easy. The lapel of this fitted tuxedo jacket is lined with a bright, crisp lime green to make sure that you pop, even if the rest of your outfit is white. As a cover-up, it’s the perfect way to transition your ensemble from hot summer days to cooler nights. It also comes in Pop Lemon.
Mother of Pearl Pink Rent Print Crepe Culottes. These flowy pants mix the best of this season’s styles to watch — candy stripes from the likes of Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors; the loose fit of bermuda shorts as seen on pieces from Nanette Lepore; and bold prints similar to those used by Tori Burch and Dolce and Gabana. That’s a lot of mileage for style out of one pair of trousers!
The most fun that you can get out of these comes from mixing and matching several chic pieces at once. Remember to browse more of Avenue 32’s “What’s New” collection to find warm-weather options for all occasions.
