Rich Colour, Luxurious Texture and Bold Pattern Dominate the F/W 2012 Collection
TORONTO, ON (March 14, 2012 – TSX:L) – The Joe Fresh brand, providing fresh fashion at fresh prices, presents its modern ‘60s infused Fall-Winter 2012 collection on Wednesday, March 14, 2012, at 9:00 pm at World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto. The F/W12 collection showcases the new, refined look and downtown feel of the Joe Fresh brand.
This season’s runway collection features key trends and silhouettes from the Joe Fresh Fall-Winter collection, including rich colour, luxurious texture and bold pattern. Deep reds, royal blues and rich mustards are prominently featured on sophisticated tweeds, lush silks and soft leathers which are offset by bold uses of chevron and houndstooth patterns. Colour blocking, peplums, long skirts and cropped jackets fuel the refined ‘60s vibe of the collection, an evolution of the spirit presented for Spring-Summer 2012.
“This season we’ve produced a more serious, downtown collection. Playing with textiles, fabrications and techniques we were able to mix textures and explore new silhouettes while still being true to the nature of the Joe Fresh brand,” says Joseph Mimran of Joseph Mimran & Associates, Creative Director, Joe Fresh, Home and Entertainment for Loblaw Companies Limited.
The Fall-Winter 2012 “Fresh off the Runway” collection will be sold exclusively at select Joe Fresh store locations across Canada and the U.S., alongside the main collection it has inspired.
