Journey Through the Decades of Glamour With the Spring/Summer 2011 Women's Clothing Collection from Mint Velvet

HIGH WYCOMBE, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 24, 2011) - Two key directions have inspired our new summer women's clothing collection; a return to the chic and minimal style of the 90s and, in contrast, the spirit of the 70s; echoing both the more grown-up look of Faye Dunaway and the softer more romantic vibe of the bohemian jet set.

SEVENTIES

The return of blue! Indigo, authentic denims and iris blues are combined with stone, latte and tan highlights. Denim takes on a grown up twist, combined with the key item of the season - the trouser! Wear with a beautiful print or detailed blouse, belted into your trouser, throw over a trench or leather jacket for that sophisticated New York vibe. Signature Mint Velvet nature inspired prints, shirt dresses, waistcoats and a wedge sandal complete the look.

PARISIAN COOL

A subtle twist on the clean 50s/60s silhouette merged with a minimal vibe-punchy oversized stripes, new blocking, quirky conversational prints and edgier zip details, complete this more graphic story. A palette of slate grey, stone, black and ivory. Combine a cropped skinny zip jean, boyfriend or biker jacket, kitten heel and stripe top for the most modern day Hepburn look!

SPORT LUXE

A sophisticated take on modern, glamorous sportswear. One of the coolest looks of the season with a nod to the 90s minimal trend. Classic casual elements like hoods, parkas, drawstrings and zips are all re-worked into beautiful draped silks and fluid knits for an easy layering story in a cool palette of steel greys, indigo, silver, ivory and an iris blue highlight. This look continues into high summer with fabulous graphic printed maxi dresses mixed back with classic stripping.

UPTOWN GIRL

The clean silhouettes of an easy shift and tunic shapes are brought to life with signature Mint Velvet fashion details such as delicate appliqués, lace inserts and lace prints. Wear with a simple knit, leather jacket or trench for dressed down glamour in blush pink and black. Think Charlotte in Sex & the City.

SAFARI CHIC

Fresh broderie tunic tops, sexy white jeans, sophisticated animal prints and a leather bomber jacket epitomize Urban Safari. Interpreted into an earthy palette of mocha, chalk and white with an amber highlight. For a more Boho feel-tile print maxis, flowing long skirts and tunics are dressed down in gently crushed linens and satins. And to really push the 'haute hippy' vibe, combine delicately embroidered tops with a slouchy wide pant and tassel belt.

MODERN ROMANCE

True romance returns for Summer in the form of stunning florals - inspired by English gardens - as a border or delicate all over print. Never fresher, in fly-away sheers and floor sweeping maxi skirts, bias cut and tea-dresses or simple tunic tops and slouchy cardigans; in blush pink, mints and charcoal. Boho Chic has never felt prettier; lace details remain key in fabrics, inserts, sleeve details and trims. Pretty cami tops can be worn back with authentic stonewash denim shorts or crops for a cute summer look.
