Betty Barclay

Spring 11

The collection New skinny cargo and slim chino trouser shapes are finally overtaking jeggings and leggings as the trouser styles of choice at Betty Barclay. Silk-effect cargos also add glamour. Tailoring is still soft, with jersey blazers given contrasting lapels and cuffs, and ribbed for a knitted look. The simple trench coat is strong for spring with

ruffle-collar and balloon-sleeved styles providing detail. Denim comes washed and distressed, with frayed edges or pin tucks enlivening jackets. Vintage looks are achieved by pairing bouclé jackets with washed-effect leather or faded dyes on jersey separates. Even tie-dye makes an appearance as part of this season’s more directional collection. Mesh is a new fabric used on cropped jackets and for cool linings. Colours are predominantly muted, with greys in every shade lifted by blues and by the ever-popular nautical story with its bright reds and navy stripes.

Brand Comment

Stacey Booth

Chief executive, Betty Barclay UK

“People are buying based on spring 10 sell-throughs and ours were up on last year to an average of about 70%, because we started to introduce younger, more directional looks. We delivered autumn 10 two weeks ago and have already had a lot of repeats. Our basics do well because we have a lot of detail there - people won’t buy plain pieces now.”
