Bright and bold at Dorothy Perkins AW11


For years, Dorothy Perkins sort of slipped under my radar a little bit at the press days. That is, until now. For AW11, DP made a bold and colourful statement, and it worked: I was wowed – probably even more than by big sister Topshop (controversial, I know!)

Colourblocking has been such a trend for the past few seasons and if it’s up to Dorothy Perkins, it isn’t going anywhere just yet, it’s just getting more amplified. There are none of the usual blacks and greys, but head-to-toe looks, from the clothes to shoes to tights to jewellery were all presented in a variety of colours and it just worked. As well as the bright clothes, there were tons of accessories, a party season range, bags, jewellery, coat after coat I need in my cupboard and shoes… oh so many shoes I wanted! Basically, DP rocked it.

Wanted to post a ton of pics, but sadly we were only allowed 5, but I hope you still get the idea. (I posted 6, but don’t tell anyone!)

  • Blogging six pictures? You dangerous rebel you :). But oh wow, I cannot wait to see these pieces in the stores. The colour!

    I have been really surprised by DP recently; stepping into the Tottenham Court Road store was like washing up on some crazy tropical island. Serious colour blocking for AW2011 is going to be fun. x

  • Ooo I really like how they’ve streamlined the colour-blocking trend using just one colour.  Much more striking! x

  •  Wow this collection looks pretty cool!! I really hope I can have a quick ride in London before winter, so that I can try a couple of pieces on, they look quite promising in picture!
    Thanks for the post! ;-)
