GALLERY: Winter Fashion 2011- Miss Selfridge A/W 2011 Lookbook

Take a look at our gallery of this winter’s offerings from Miss Selfridge, featuring our old favourites: colour-blocking, 70s-style, and some very bright tights…

Things We Learned About 2001 Winter Fashion From the Miss Selfridge A/W 2011 Lookbook:

1. The midi skirt may be on the way out.

Sure, there are a few skirts here which are knee-length or lower, and if you want midis, well, some of the other retailers we’ve previewed recently will be more than happy to oblige with that. But at Miss Selfridge, hemlines are much, much shorter, with a selection of mini skirts and dresses, and some items that look suspiciously like tops to TFP, but which are being worn as dresses anyway, as if the good people at Miss S are sticking two fingers up at the rest of the fashion world and saying, “Screw, you, fashion: if you want to persist with this ‘midi’ nonsense, we’re going to make our models wear tops and tights: see what you make of THAT!”

2. Colourblocking is giving way to monoblocking

While the other brands we’ve looked at so far this winter have gone for a “every colour we can find, all worn at the same time” approach, Miss S have, once again, gone their own way on this one, and are using an approach we’re going to refer to as “monoblocking”. You know, like in the driveways? This involves wearing just one colour, or different shades of one colour. The colour in question can be anything, as long as it’s BRIGHT. So, in the image above, for instance, we have a bright yellow “dress” worn with bright yellow tights, a bright yellow headband and… is that a CAPE? Because that looks like a cape to us. Are capes going to big in winter 2011? Will we be able to stand it if they are. (*makes note to put a detective on this asap* ). Similarly, we have a tomato red dress worn with tomato red tights, and a pink dress worn with pinkish/purple tights and red shoes. OK, so that one is more like the colourblocking we know and love, but still.

3. 70s style, blah, blah, blah

You know the drill with this by now, don’t you? The 70s will be big in winter 2011. And there’s not a thing any of us can do about it.

We’ve provided more items from Miss Selfridges Winter 2011 Lookbook in the  gallery below, some of which are already available to buy – click here to do it.

What do you think of these looks, though? Are you ready to monoblock your closet?

    Given that I don’t live in the sort of place where these styles are winter-appropriate, I’m mostly safe from these looks. Now if that knit trench’s collar is detachable, I might just have to import it somehow, because that’s the sort of trench I’ve been looking for in vain for ages!

    Hmm – a lot of those skirts would definitely be too short for me, and I’m very short. That said, I really like monoblocking and I love the shoes in all of those photos – so maybe Miss Selfridge will have something to tempt me to part with my money in there this autumn after all!

    As a sucker for coloured tights, I’ll be all over this! Loving all the colour – it’ll brighten up the winter, and that can never be a bad thing. Thanks for sharing!

    I’d wear the one on the left anytime! Ok, maybe not mono blocked in all-pink. I’d chose different tights ^^ The one in the middle though reminds me of a mustard Wonder Woman. Only more demure in clothing. What kind of a rip-off is this??

    I love the deep, rich colors they have. I’m particularly eyeing that pleated teal midi skirt, that’s a stunning color that I don’t see often.
