Summer line goes nautical–with a twist


DRESSES from J by Jasper Conran

The Debenhams Spring-Summer ’13 collection for kids is for the little traveler.

Nautical-inspired, it is replete with stripes, florals, springtime prints and bold colors. Borrowing elements from the classic sailor look with a splash of imagination, the brand has created an extensive range of classic summer pieces for party and casual wear, for any kind of weather.

Bluezoo takes baby girls to the seaside with red and white with pops of mint green and lemon, and  stripes and florals. Colored jeggings, slogan graphics, photographic and mix-and-match prints, and washed-out denim are perfect for sunny days.

Bold colors and neon highlights dominate the baby boys’ line of Bluezoo. There are bright hues and neon accessories for that cool, quirky look.

For a more dainty and feminine look, Junior J by Jasper Conran’s Little Daisy collection has pretty preppy clothes, delicate chalked-off shades and beautiful high summer dresses.

BOYS’ WEAR from J by Jasper Conran

Timeless nautical is combined with pretty vintage for the Plain Sailing line. There are pleated and preppy polo and tennis dresses, sweat blazers, vintage prints and colored jeans.

For the big boys, there’s a choice between modern simplicity and trendy classic. Junior J by Jasper Conran gives a twist to timeless pieces, while Bluezoo has charming, “kids on the dock” look, with must-have pieces such as colored jeans, dark denims, reverse print tees, Breton stripes and gingham checks.

Junior J’s girls’ collection has geo-prints, shift dresses and colored jeans. There are little lady showstoppers with wild prints and colors from Butterfly by Matthew Williamson.

Debenhams stores are at Shangri-La Plaza Mall, Rustan’s Makati, TriNoma, and Abreeza Mall in Davao.
