Long before Warehouse was the high-street staple we know and love, the company found its roots as Warehouse Utility Clothing way back when in 1976. What with the trend for going back to basics at the moment, Warehouse decided to follow suit and are launching their new collection Warehouse Utility this week.
The new collection will see them modernising their original casual classics with a rough and ready line of washed, laundered and worn-in fabrics in a palette of khaki, grey and sandy tones. Warehouse Utility is spot-on with the the military-inspired S/S 2010 runway collections, easy-to-wear jackets, shorts and trousers a paired with ravaged jersey and oversized knits. The embellishments bring a rock n roll vibe with hints of glamour from sporadic sequins, studs, embroidery and chain fringing – we’re especially loving the gorgeous military jacket (below) complete with with super-styley epaulettes, it’s the perfect alternative to a trench for spring.
The Warehouse Utility collection launches both in stores nationwide and online this Thursday, 25 February…see y’all there!x
