'KIND OF BLUES': The Spring/Summer Collection 2013
KIND OF BLUES
For the Spring/Summer 2013 collection 5PREVIEW finds inspiration from a favorite wardrobe full of vintage pieces and washed out, worn, torn, tones of blue and stripes. The collection has a mature and feminine silhouette with garments inspired from military clothes and easy, bohemian linen pieces.
The collection is based on a vintage and playful look with multiple colored stripes in different sizes. With varied allover prints – like the micro polka-dot-like “Y5L” print and the tonal blue “CITY” print – 5PREVIEW offers a lot of variation but still maintains the clear blue line that keeps the collection together.
The silhouette is slender and minimalistic with a sporty edge. Boxy garments such as shirts, tops and jackets are mixed together with skinny trousers and vibrant leggings. The suit consists of a fitted blazer with an asymmetric collar and a pair of high waisted casual trousers. These pieces comes in a dusty, light, faded out blue with a matching 50s inspired summer sleeveless shirt to finish the look. The baseball and military jacket are both unisex and can be effortlessly styled with the rest of the collection. The dresses and jumpsuits have an aesthetically vintage feel with sweet, feminine details. Soft sheer materials with a luxurious and exclusive feel characterize the Spring/Summer 2013 collection.
Fabric mixes such as the silk jersey knits and sheer silk chiffon, contrast the shiny coated, washed linen textures also featured. This collection also includes materials in shiny tencel, soft washed cotton gabardine, light knitted cotton, knitted viscose jacquards and vintage-like striped rayon. There is a wide range of sporty fleece and a group of deconstructed silk pieces with raw cut edges.
The men's collection is based on a both minimalist and classic looks. Block color combinations in different tones of blue feature strongly amongst the work wear & military inspired silhouettes. This is our first collection to include exclusive items for men. Our goal is to provide practical menswear but keep the essential, subtle, ironic twists that make us 5PREVIEW.
We are proud to present our first ever t-shirt range for kids! Created for kids aged 2 years to 8 years, this mini collection includes a selection of our iconic prints as well as the cheeky introduction of an ENFANT TERRIBLE print.
COLORS AND PRINTS |
The name of the collection “Kind of Blues” comes from the ambiance of a classic Miles Davis album. It makes you think of the past, something timeless, classic and of course blue! In this summer collection we got inspiration from the salty windy sea and washed out nautical stripes. This collection features exclusive all over prints such as the “CITY” print (a hand drawn version of Nolli’s Rome-map in tonal blue), the digital sea print (that is made from an old Polaroid), soft blue tencel, dusty blue silks, washed indigo fleece, a multiple large tonal blue stripe printed on linen. The pop color this season is a vibrant coral red that shows up in the “SONIA” stripe and on a fleece sweater.
5PREVIEW continues to offer a large supply of tote bags in different sizes. The mini-lunch bag, the medium bag and the large tote bag with a smaller bag inside. Interesting materials and colors including fleece and tie dye. Some classics, such as the military bag, BIG BLACK BAG and the wallet is now in new colors. The sophisticated FLAT BAG will hopefully be a new classic!
Our scarves, again, are an extension of the main collection featuring hand drawn maps and the classic CAVOUR print. We also present 5 luxurious leather belts in vintage tones and with a chain detail.
