The collection Navy is one of the dominant colours in Bandolera’s spring 10 collection, offering an interesting take on the nautical trend when paired with cream and red on polka dot cardigans with contrast colour trims. Animal print is still strong, from reptile greys on softly padded jackets to lilac and mint tiger stripes on floaty panelled dresses. There is less of a focus on tailoring than in autumn 09, with more emphasis on easy-to-wear jersey pieces, which add shape to the silhouette without being overly structured. Abstract prints from swirls to leaf patterns provide a contemporary edge.

Many of our buyers under-bought for spring 09, ordering extra stock in season, so are spending more for spring 10 to avoid this again.
We have tightened up our spring 10 collection, with each of our eight spring drops reduced from 90 to roughly 70 pieces. Buyers are craving more variety this season, so are buying from three or four of the different drop groups.
