High Street Preview: John Lewis spring 13
John Lewis Collection for spring 13 is a Caribbean cocktail of colour and print, with some surprising pieces including hints of neon. At its heart, however, is the traditional John Lewis customer, as classic shapes including wrap dresses and tailored skirts bear in mind the working woman. Prices range from £25 to £99. John Lewis Collection Weekend continues the Havana theme, with colourful, relaxed styles including skinny jeans and linen tops. For the menswear, the theme is ‘urban explorer’ with a collection doubled in size from past seasons. Attention to detail is key, with vintage striped lining adding interest to blazers. Somerset by Alice Temperley looks particularly strong for spring 13, and has introduced footwear including brogues and woven heels to complement the French Riviera theme of the collection. New for spring 13 is KIN by John Lewis, spanning menswear, womenswear and kidswear in a lifestyle collection which shows promise with its Scandinavian inspired basics.
