Asos’s womenswear references the 1960s and 1970s in a big way for spring 11. The offer is vast, but Asos segments it into key trends including colour blocking, texturised fabrics and a 1970s-inspired story.
Coloured denim and lightweight knits are key, while pattern comes via oversized spots, wide stripes and a heart motif which decorates shift dresses, cropped bandeau tops and fluted skirts. Peek-a-boo details come in the form of delicate laser cut-outs and broderie anglaise on shift dresses. Lace overlays, sheer tops and full skirts in heavily layered fabric underpin a texturised trend.
The palette references the 1970s with tan, mahogany and Bordeaux red used on flowing dresses, crêpe trousers and knitted pleat skirts.
