Spanner's Spring 2006 season comes alive with vivid colours,
vibrant prints and plenty of luxe embellishments. Nautical
influences and African inspired details are just two of the
many global themes that are hot this season.
Tailored jackets are still key toppers, the rest of the
silhouette is loose, flowing or A-line, moving off and away
from the body. The feeling is one of the casual sophistication,
tailored on top, easy and feminine everywhere else.
For spring, the Spanner woman goes globetrotting. Clothes
have exotic, far away looks: bold tribal prints from Africa,
intricate bead work from East India, summertime classics from
France and the prairie style of the American southwest.
Black and White: Spanner's Penelope line capitalizes on the
minimalist look of classic black and white. This look is the
perfect office-appropriate alternative to this season's
bejewelled bohemian look this season. The form-fitting jacket
looks great with a skirt or pants.
Navy is back: Just like its beautiful, sultry namesake, Spanner's Sophia line is the epitome of the simple, Old World glamorous style of dressing that Sophia Loren made famous. The classic and always elegant colour combination of navy and white is the star of this production. Here, serious, sophisticated suiting takes an artful turn when embroidered with sutash and worn with a sexy, lacy underpinning. Floral burnouts adorn both pant and skirt hems and jacket sleeves. The skirt of the season makes an appearance here in a beautiful print and is topped with an embellished shell. Topping it all off, is the requisite trench coat in classic navy.
Spanner is also sailing into spring with a remix of classic nautical colours navy and white.
And remember what is the most fun about wearing Spanner is that it can be mixed and matched.
