McGregor pick five themes for women for spring/summer
Jun '09
McGregor's new spring/summer womenswear collection features five themes, each of which uniquely conveys the McGregor feeling. Fans of Charlie's Angels will stand out in the bermuda shorts from The Chase collection while the Polo and Horses collection seems made for today's accomplished horsewomen.

The sportswear line is based on three themes: The Chase, The Game and Polo & Horses.
• The Chase was inspired by the Charlie's Angels era in the early '80s. A glamorous theme with an athletic university touch. Sporty feminine wrap-around dresses, knee-breeches in Vichy chequers and bags; polo shirts and blouses with bi-colour stripes are real eyecatchers. The Chase must have is the polo pique dress with red and white polka dots.
• The Game is a sporty theme with an upper class touch, full of items with intricate details and broad stripes. Feminine tunics with player's numbers, pique polo shirts with graphic floral prints and pleated skirts in Vichy chequers create quite a splash, while rugged waistcoats and skirts in jogging fabric provide more of a sporty look. Key colours are black, grey melange and white with yellow and purple accents.
• Polo and Horses is based on equestrian sport. Richly decorated embroidery on feminine polo shirts, riding trousers in tandem with romantic cotton top, deep V-neck jumpers and waistcoats define this theme's look. Chic satin tube skirts add a very feminine touch. A must-have accessory is the cognac-coloured belt with clasp-style buckle. Gold makes a comeback in various badges within a collection awash in cognac, sand, white, navy accented with green and pink.

The two themes of McGregor's casual collection are Sahara Desert and Aix en Provence.
• Sahara Desert looked to the sweeping sands of the Sahara for its inspiration. An edgy yet easygoing collection where romantic blouses are worn as a contrast with rugged washed jeans. A new twist is the weather-beaten look given to classic McGregor prints. The main colours of this theme are charcoal grey, sand, white and two shades of coral.
• Aix en Provence draws its inspiration from the romantic lavender fields and old French cottages in the land of Brigitte Bardot. Fancily striped boat neck jumpers and tunics, timeless capris and washed leather jackets define the look. Key colours are black, sand, ecru, grey melange and mustard yellow.
