Alexi Freeman AW 2010 Preview


 is your extensive sneak peek at Alexi Freeman‘s Winter collection for 2010.

Hands down my favourite piece is the “Holographic Mesh Party Dress”. The dress is made special by a little flashy shine courtesy of a holographic teal material overlaid by mesh to subtle effect. The same reflective material also appears in the designer’s infamous leggings – either with mesh overlay or served straight up with a hint of disco. Panelled leggings have evolved from last season’s full-on mesh version to this sexy, hint-of-skin variety.

Alexi’s graphic-inclined leanings are always a prevalent theme of each collection as is evidenced again for Winter 2010. The print of choice for the season is the “Mini Flapper”, a repeated diamond pattern which features in metallic gold, silver, teal and black throughout the collection; most strikingly as a hidden teal lining on trench coats. Various coats are the key pieces in this collection. Lightweight black trenches in superfine merino wool or oiled cotton (waterproof – Alexi dares you to jump in the shower while sporting one to test it out) are pure class. When further warmth is called for there’s a “Mini Flapper Trench” in a creamy white wool and cashmere blend, the striking, black and white “Op Art Coat” or the lighter “Op Art Raincoat”. I always love a classic blazer too and there are both elegant tuxedo and mini flapper print pieces on offer here.

There’s also the addition of more accessories for winter with the inclusion of a studded skinny belt, a leather printed clutch purse and panelled merino and mesh scarves. Plus there is the “Infinity” jewellery, in the form of a necklace and ring in silver figure eights. The ring would be a lovely, unique take on a  wedding band with its “never-ending” symbolism. So now there’s a chance to own a little piece of the collection even if you’re on a budget (as I failingly remind myself again).

The Alexi Freeman Winter 2010 collection will be available in March next year. The gallery below is a showcase of my personal  faves – there’s plenty!
