AW 08-09 trend report: Urban Outfitters
My, what a lot of goodies there were at the Urban Outfitters press day. Red seems to be the big colour with red cords (yes, cords are back big time) from See by Chloe and two darling little-red-riding-hood coats from Sonia by Sonia Rykiel and Karen Walker. Oh and how could I forget these amazing red leopard print knit tights – genius, I’ll take four!
Flouncy mini skirts continue to crop up as does more black lace, so clearly there’s no sign of the eighties obsession abating any time this decade.
On the accessories front it’s all about these Melissa for Vivienne Westwood hook-ups or, if you’re anticipating the credit crunch affecting your funds, these patent bow hair clips should give you a fashion fix without the cashflow crisis. Plus I adore this purple knitted belt – only Sonia Rykiel could come up with that…
The big news is that ‘Urb’ will be stocking Luella from next season – altogether now, Whoop-de-doo!

Those jackets are killing me! I love them.

Love the two little red peplum jackets! I’d probably replace the gold buttons with pewter, but they’d look great with jeans–or anything.

that’s only in the UK, right?
I am totally heartbroken over the sales of Sonic Youth tees at Urbn. The snob in me can’t handle the thought of seeing random teenagers wearing them but not knowing what they hell they are wearing.
I am old?

oh my YES! I love red, and I’ve owned about ten pairs of red cords in my days, each one of them dying a well-loved death in the end. I’ve got to stock up at UO when these go on sale…

Yes Laia, that’s only in the Uk. I’m with you re the Sonic Youth tees. I felt the same about the New Order tees last year and the Keith Haring tees at Uniqlo this year. I hate to think that the kids wearing them think he’s a T-shirt designer or a new graffiti artist. I know, I’m being a condescending snob but that’s how I feel. Alas, we are old, there’s no getting away from it. Sorry!

Quite a label coup…. the UO here is so different from the one in America it’s quite funny…

I know I am too old, but the tights are just fantastic.

Yet another bunch of cool clothes that stupid stores here will never think of stocking..
(sorry if my whining about the abysmal state of shopping options is getting to be a pain).
