John Lewis unveils beatnik inspired A/W'12 collection

Oct '12
John Lewis COLLECTION weekend’s autumn winter 2012 range is a beatnik inspired collection which includes cowl neck cable knits, cashmere batwing jerseys, ski pant style twill trousers, indigo denim pencil skirts and animal print skinny jeans, ideal for teaming with the collection’s snakeskin pointed courts.

Drop waist silk shirt dresses feature in emerald green and the collection’s signature orange poppy print is also seen on silk shell tops and scarves.

Jo Hooper, Head of Buying Womenswear, says; “The collection’s intense colour palette includes saturated reds, navy and cobalt blues and fresh pea greens. Layering is key for the season and the collection lends itself to this trend. Chunky cable knits worn with a denim pencil skirt can be belted whilst cashmere cardigans can be layered over neatly buttoned up silk shirts.”

Jo Hooper, continues; “Whilst spring summer 2012 took inspiration from the French Riviera, autumn winter 2012 is channelling the style of 60s icons Bridget Bardot and Edie Sedgwick.”

With prices ranging from £22 for a striped slub jersey top to £99 for a luxurious cashmere jumper and £189 for a leather tote bag, John Lewis COLLECTION weekend also includes fashion focused accessories - from pony skin totes to snakeskin courts.
