Fall Collection To Covet-Whistles 

When I came across Whistles Fall 2012 collection I fell in love with every single outfit from the look book. The looks are so fresh, modern, and perfect for the upcoming fall and winter season. I would love to add any of these outfits to my wardrobe. 

And even Kate Middleton loves Whistles.  She looks stunning in this Whistles bella dress she wore to the Olympics closing ceremony. Of course the dress is now sold out. 

This press release below provides all the relevant details about the Fall collection. 

“For Autumn Winter 2012 Whistles presents a collection inspired by modern sportswear, luxe fabrications and multi texturing on garments.  A masculine sensibility plays alongside feminine silhouettes.

For Outerwear a new shape is introduced, coats are shown with a soft rounded shoulder and raglan sleeve. Leather piping and paneling add a luxe finish.  Contrasting fabrics continue in fitted overcoats, with sheepskin and leather set against soft woll in loose and tighter knitted textures.

The signature Whistles leather biker is visible in quilted and fitted styles.

For day, dresses are drop waisted with shirting collar or sporty in jersey fabrics and knits, smartened with a leather piping detail or a contrasting pocket.  Simple shift shapes take on an ovoid feel.  Shirting continues to be a key element within the collection, taking on a masculine feel in loose fitting shapes with an extended back.

Crepe adds form to soft trousers and skirts featuring drawstring waists.  Signature pieces include a track pant in soft black leather with silver toggle detailing.

Knitwear is textural, with dresses in voucle and kick ruffle hems finished with leather detailing or lace inserts.  Sweaters are oversized and come in marled mohair and leather paneling in relaxed silhouettes.

Jacquard and brocade fabrics prevail across both day and eveningwear, with full skirted minis and dresses with fitted bodices featuring ‘unbrellla’ skirts.  Black silk spot jacquard is panelled in two different spot scales features on several pieces including a peplum waisted evening dress.

The colour palette begins with soft mints, greys and pale blues, moving in to navy, rich forest green gold, bronze and ash toned pinks for Christmas.  Vermillion is an accent colour throughout, in knits and sweeping evening gowns.  Color blocking continues and is updated with prints and contrasting fabrics.

Key prints include a crocodile inspired textural print, micro pip and lace prints, all used with sport or colour blocked details to give a modern feel.”
