After our recent interview with fashion super brand Joe Browns, where we found out that fun and adventure inspire each new collection and heard how being an individual is at the heart of the Joe Browns customer, we were certainly looking forward to seeing what exciting new designs the brand has to offer for the Autumn 2011 season. Will it still inspire us to find our wild side and, in the words of Joe Browns, ‘boogie to our own beat’ when it comes to fashion?
Well, yes, is the simple answer, and it’s not just ladies wear that has caught our eye this time as the menswear is looking pretty great too! The quirky styles and eye-catching prints from the Spring Summer range have been taken through to next season, yet the colour palette has evolved to the richer colours that we all love to wear when the weather starts to turn cooler.
The Fun Tea Dress in a ditsy floral print is perfect for that transition period between Summer and Autumn, as it’s ideal for layering up with cardigans and would look fab with opaque tights and boots, but still has that summery print which would look equally as good with bare legs and cute ballet pumps.
This waterfall cardigan is one of our favourite pieces as it perfectly combines the Joe Browns we know and love with the type of knitwear we all crave for Autumn. It looks cosy and stylish, and the pretty blue shades will add a splash of colour to our winter wardrobe.
One of the key features that always stands out in a Joe Browns collection is the dipped or a-symmetrical hem lines, and this collection is full of them! We love the tonal tye-dye effect and voluminous skirt of this soaked layer dress, and also have a soft spot for the contrasting patterns and colours of the perfect print dress, which also has side ties so you can gather the skirt up to your desired length.
So add to this a huge range of tops, tunics, knitwear, jeans and coats, and we think you’ll agree that Joe Browns has got Autumn style down to a T this year, and we can’t wait to start wearing this collection!
If your man is a fan of this brand too, they’ll have no problem stocking up their winter wardrobe with Joe Browns knitwear or hoodies for days off, bright patterned shirts in that classic Joe Browns style (the Ibiza Town shirt is our particular favourite for brightening up a dull Autumn night), and a good old pair of jeans or trousers. We love this pair of combat trousers for a laid back style, and think it would look great with a hoody or long sleeved top.
We can always count on Joe Browns for something that little bit different, and we love that no matter what the weather’s like their sense of fun and adventure is always at the heart of every collection, and we’re pleased to say that this season is clearly no different!
