The Warehouse spring/summer 2011 lookbook covers various hot trends for the warm season. The collection has eight different looks: Romantica, Californian Dreaming, Ultimate Simplicity, 70’s Studio, Rainforest Warrior, Garden Festival, and Summer Goddess.

As we have seen on numerous runway shows, the seventies fashion has been a strong source of inspiration for the spring/summer 2011 season. Various seventies items were reinvented and used in order to create newer, more modern versions.

The spring/summer 2011 Warehouse lookbook will certainly represent an unexpected delight for all vintage lovers. Boho influences are seen everywhere materialized into the riot of prints and ’70s inspired accessories. You can feel this retro vibe into the flare high-waisted pants and jeans, but also into the skinny pants, which took the place of the wide leg type in the later seventies.

There are so many clothing items and accessories in the Warehouse spring/summer 2011 collection that strongly remind us of the ’70s style, such as the already famous maxi dresses with floral prints, large, loose shirts, cinched waist, wide brimmed hats, or platform sandals.

The Rainforest Warrior part of the Warehouse spring/summer 2011 collection includes beautiful, wearable clothing items in earthy shades and with different tribal and animal prints embellished with lace up details. Whether you choose a pair of shorts or pants, a beautiful tunic, a blazer, or a sexy top, don’t be afraid to mix and match and go for something spectacular. This simple palette of classic earthy tones is amazing offering a wide range of possibilities and making a silhouette more feminine. If you want to experiment and add a touch of mystery, pair these shades with tones of gray or green.

It is more than obvious that romanticism will be one of the hottest trends for spring summer 2011. Therefore, since lace is such an ethereal and adorable fabric, offering elegance and sophistication, one could observe a real lace explosion across the collections. Lace and sheer fabrics in a second-skin shade can reflect maximum elegance as seen in the Romantica part. Besides, nude and neutrals are among the hottest colors for the upcoming season and they can also be found in the Warehouse collection too.

After a dull winter, it’s time we bloom and start wearing dazzling colors. This spring we should dare more, forget about all unwritten fashion rules and try bolder combinations of bright colors. Moreover, colorful stripes should be a must into your wardrobe. Whether you choose horizontal, vertical or diagonal, stripes are a smart choice since they have the power to change your silhouette and bring a playful, funny touch to your look.

For special occasions and hot summer nights, Warehouse comes with minimal, yet luxurious cuts in the Ultimate Simplicity part, while Summer Goddess brings elegant dresses and metallic details paired with leather fringes and soft, delicate lace.
