A well presented, trend-led collection, but it lacks a real punch to stand out this season
Warehouse touches on all the major trends, from denim jeggings and an oversized shirt to printed tailored dresses, ditsy floral prints and a tiered denim mini dress. There is less of the retailer’s new Utility sub-range than you might expect but what there is looks strong, including burnished gold sequins snaking across the front of tie-dye slouchy cotton dresses. Tribal embellished bright jersey tops and ethnic-printed dresses should have been backed more heavily.
The backdrop to this concession is tired, with stained beige carpets on the stairs and peeling paint on the walls. However, the Warehouse product is in a comfortable little enclave flanked by Mango. The changing rooms are freezing.
Grey denim jeggings impress at £30, while a £45 sequined utility top compares similarly to one at Topshop. A cream-and-navy striped knit with Admiralty buttons on the shoulders is £22, which is one of the best value options seen by Drapers. A broderie anglaise trimmed cotton vest at £35 is great value.
