A little over a week ago, I attended the New Look AW14 Press Preview to discover the latest pieces and trends of the season. AJ, Dubai Mall’s New Look Store Manager showed me around and introduced me to all the key pieces at the event. I compiled all the womenswear trends that I noticed in the above word collage and here are a couple of photos I took at the event itself. Please excuse the phone quality pics.
Prints I loved: Houndstooth, Dalmatian, Floral, Animal, Checks, Tribal
Colors I loved: Military Green, Pastels, Neon pops and Monochrome
Party pieces: The mini faux-fur capes (available in black, cream leopard and grey), embellished dresses, sequined tops, statement blanket pieces.
Top Trends: Utility Chic & Boho Luxe
Here are some of my favorite looks from the AW14 Campaign images:
^ This skirt is my favorite piece from the entire collection. I loved the longer hemlines this season. I would pair this skirt with a chunky khaki sweater or a heavy crop sweater like the one above and some heavy boots to tone down the femininity of the skirt. So Utility Chic!
^ Checks, checks and more checks. They are a big deal this season in everything from elegant tailoring, statement clutches and killer heels to cozy scarves, sweaters and blanket coats.
^ Love these sparkly glitter clutches and boots for the upcoming Eid break and party season.
Below are some of my favorite picks in Womenswear & Accessories and Menswear.

At the event, AJ also introduced me to the menswear collection that has a strong naval and military influences. The color palette is inspired by stormy seas and dark skies. Lots of prints and heavy textures in the collection with cable knit jumpers, wool pea coats, Breton stripes and heavy military boots. I really like these two sweaters and shirt.
Prices in AED:
Dark Blue jumper – 95
Checkered Shirt – 125
Deep Red Jumper – 95
