UNITED COLORS OF BENETTON SPRING/SUMMER 2008
Brilliant colours, dynamic style, young glamour, international mood.
Four definitions which, in a harmonious whole, sum up the UCB collection for the next spring and summer season. A spontaneous style yet with fashion detailing, true to itself, while incorporating lifestyle changes.
New Woman, or formalwear from 8 in the morning to 8 in the evening, with strictly classic items featuring low waists, ultra-narrow hems, basic colours and stripes in all widths and all directions. Outerwear, long or short, has trench details; the shirts, the current must-haves, also influence the cut of the t-shirts and minidresses which become shirt dresses.
Her like Him, basic men's styles with feminine charm. Neutral tones with a touch of rosewood. Slouchy trousers top the bill yet when it's the turn of skirts they must be fluid and floaty above the knee. A parenthesis of sprigged silk and a sparkle of sequins that are barely visible soften the raincoats and the striped shirts of the perfect executive.
Everything's Ethno, an unpredictable touch of folk; stateless fashion details tell of far-off lands: Peruvian stripes, Caribbean flowers, Japanese sleeves, African patterns, Indian jodhpurs and Nepalese layering.
Sweaters, or a world of knits. Soft tricots in every colour, every stitch and every size to be worn with multicoloured leggings and tape knit shrugs. Stripes are endearing and enchanting decorations - horizontal, vertical, floral, openwork, ruched and gathered. The rugby polo shirt is offered in multiple lengths, even as far as the ankle.
