For the Autumn/Winter 2013-14 collection 5PREVIEW finds inspiration from the 1977 punk song by Plastic Bertrand, ‘Ça Plane Pour Moi’. When translated, the name of this collection means ‘Everything is going well for me’. This phrase sets the theme for the entire collection. It is easy going yet has a mature design aesthetic with bursts of colour and energy.
The collection carries self-confidence and an edge, which can be attributed to a ‘grown –up grunge’ look. It is made up of beautiful deep plum tones mixed with a classic dark blue and military green. There are some surprising new all over prints including a bright green camouflage, striking zigzag, navy flannel plaid, romantic water colour and new bold stripe combinations.
The fleece component of the collection is also more ‘grown-up’, experimenting with tailored silhouettes. They are the kind of pieces that you can wear on a night out, not just as casual wear. Comfortable yet super chic. This season also presents a wider variety of print and colour options in fleece. A little something for everyone.
Classic styles have been reproduced in new fabrications such as ramie, mohair super kid and alpaca while the popular basic jersey pieces are updated with the newest ‘tongue in cheek’ print parodies. There has been an expansion in knitwear as we are now offering a variety of styling. From fine, sheer, knitted, volume tee’s to large, chunky, jacquard camouflage sweaters ‘Ça
Plane Pour Moi’ has it!
The Autumn/Winter 2013-14 collection is a good illustration of how 5PREVIEW is expanding. This collection includes a more extensive men’s collection as well as a growing kids wear collection. ‘Ça Plane Pour Moi’, AW2013-14 represents being in a good place and hints of grunge nostalgia. A collection for people going places.
Colors and Prints
‘Ça Plane Pour Moi’, AW2013-14 has a strong grunge influence when it comes to colours and prints. It is made up of moody winter tones such as a deep plum mixed with dark blue and, of course, military green. The grunge factor can be seen clearly in the all over camouflage and flannel plaid. In contrast to the ‘underground’ styling is the modern zigzag and romantic water colour prints.
As for our tee shirt prints, what would 5PREVIEW be without a little cheekiness? This collection we have the vivid ‘SALVATORE’ print, ‘FELINÉ’ and ‘YOHJI’ based on a famous quote by the visionary master tailor Yohji Yamamoto.
5PREVIEW continues to offer a large choice of stylish bags in different sizes. This season there are more leather options including a luxurious iPad cover and computer bag.
Our scarves, again, are an extension of the main collection featuring hand drawn illustrations and the classic CAVOUR print.
