Primark Fall 2010 Preview

More Autumn collection previews, this time it’s Primark. Primark sometimes has brilliant stuff for almost nothing, but this time it somehow doesn’t impress me. The collection seems a bit random, and honestly, a bit boring.  Pictures:

Cashmere fur collar coat £49, Stack heel platforms £15, Cable heart over the knee socks £1.50.

Gamine pleat tunic £15, Black tights £3, Lace and leather driving gloves £7, Stiletto pumps £10. The gloves are cute!

Leopard playsuit £13, Faux fur hobo £10, Oversized bead and cord necklace £5, Punch out hiking boots £20, Ribbed over the knee socks £1.50.

Navy military cape £25, Wet look legging £7, Chunky cable arm warmers £3, Grey over the knee socks £2, Black lace ankle boots £15.

Heart fob shorts £10,  Pussy bow blouse £10,  Ribbed over the knee socks £1.50,  Punch out hiking boots £20.

Fishnet crop top £8, Chocolate fur coat £27, Wet look biker legging £7, Lace court shoes £12, Black studded clutch £7. And the stylist did a very bad job.

Parka jacket £21, Military dress £13, Woven metal buckle belt £3, Punch out hiking boots £20, Ribbed over the knee socks £1.50.

Preview: Primark Spring 2010

Some quick Primark gossip: First, the pictures of the spring collection are here. This season it’s very “English rose romantic”: lace shirts, florals prints and straw bags. I like it, but I will skip the denim on denim trend in the second picture (Yes, I know it’s very Chloe ss2010, but I bloody hate it. Die trend! Die!). 

And for all Dutch Primark lovers: a second store will be opened in the centre of Nijmegen in 2013!

Roxy print playsuit (£13) worn with plastic straw chain strap bag (£6).

Denim shirt (£10) worn with matching skinny jeans (£8) and belt (£2).  

Limited Edition lace boyfriend jacket (£25) worn with matching lace shorts (£15) and cotton modal vest (£2).

Lulu rose prom dress (£15) worn with straw boater.

Rose print blouse (£8) worn with lace vest, rose print shorts  (£5) and ditzy print fabric trilby (£4).

Chambray parka -Hello 90’s!- ( £19) worn with sequin motif striped dress (£9) and jazz pumps (£8).

Rose print jacket (£13) worn with lace vest (£4), floral print shorts (£7) and rattan straw handled bag.

Preview Primark Lingerie Collection Spring 2010

Primark is always great for buying stuff that looks great and costs (almost) nothing. Especially their lingerie department is always cheap and cheerfull. This spring the lingerie collection will be based upon four themes:

College Re-Union – a young and sporty collection, which focuses on cool cottons and adrogynous styling, think boxers and low-rise briefs, along with tongue-in-cheek slogans and sexy 70’s collegiate numbers.

Enchanted – the feminine, romantic range, it’s all nudes and pinks with lots of lace and ladylike styling.

Candy Shop – fun and playful, it draws inspiration from the 50’s with its ditzy florals and warm checks in soda pink, sherbert yellow, apple green and fresh mint.

Wayfarer – the sophisticated lot! Think nautical-inspired plains and stripes in red, white and blue.

Time to visit Rotterdam again!

Preview: Primark Fall 2009 Collection

Oooh, Primark……….isn’t it the most brilliant store ever? A week ago I was at Primark at Oxford Street, London, “just to take a look”. I left with three black dresses (one bow dress, a one shoulder dress, and a “space-age” dress), two greyish leopard peplum skirts, a retro print trenchcoat, two pairs of shoes (including silver snakeskin gladiator heels), a heart shaped bag, a belt, and lots of underwear. 🙂 The Fall 2009 clothes are too good to be true. As all highstreet collections, it is predominantly influenced by Balmain (the sequins, the shoulders, etc.) and it’s very sharp looking. Time to visit Rotterdam (or London) again soon ……..

Primark Spring 2009

I think Primark is the coolest store ever. When you’ve got no budget left, there’s always something to score at Primark.  Recently the first Dutch Primark store has opened in Rotterdam Alexandrium. 

Here are some images from the spring 2009 collection. The shoes are dissapointing, but the lingerie is great!
