Passport

Spring 11

The collection Colours are more subdued at Passport for spring 11, with faded washes on fitted jersey tops and dresses and toned-down versions of animal prints. Bright fuchsia pieces, predominantly in the form of fine knitwear basics, add flashes of colour. Leather is back for the season but always in washed styles. Suede is a new addition for Passport, with detailed items such as a multi-panelled jacket and a laser-cut waistcoat making up the top price points of the collection. Faux suede provides some washable, cheaper alternatives. Printed sequins and mesh-fronted vests give the collection a younger slant although classic pieces such as loose batwing jumpers remain and provide commercial staples.

Long, draped cardigans have been updated with mesh panels, while jersey separates use flame yarn for a flecked appearance. Sheer kaftan-style printed tops and lace finishes on separates provide a feminine feel.

Number of pieces 700 across two phases

Brand Comment

Nigel Hughes

Director of UK agent APT Collections

“Premium retailers are doing well with Passport in Europe because it’s got that level of fashionability and detail, but in terms of price is at the entry level. We’re trying to take it in that direction here in the UK this season. I think all brands are having to evolve because the classic end of the market has suffered - the consumer is still there but is dressing younger.”
