Without frills, the Autumn/Winter line is vintage Benetton
It’s that time of the year—when designer stores start introducing their Autumn/Winter lines. Chennai—with its only temperature variation all year long being hot-hotter-hottest—may not have much of an Autumn or Winter, but that doesn’t mean Chennai-ites can’t enjoy the new styles and colours that enter the stores around the city.
In the second week of September, The United Colours of Benetton flagship store on Khader Nawaz Khan Road unveils its latest collection. It goes without saying that at Benetton, a new collection is all about the colours, particularly for their signature tees and tops.
For all moods
From paler shades such as soft lilac and muddy pink to bright tones such as marine blue and ruby red or neutrals such as sage green and beige, there’s something for every mood.
As a concession to the demand for semi-formal wear, the generally casual collection has some slim-fitting slacks and striped shirts this season.
And if you’re going for the preppy look, you can throw on one of their sleeveless vests over the shirt or top of your choice. If funky is what you’re going for, you have plenty of options as well—for example, you have leggings in a wide variety of shades that fit like a second skin and can be teamed with one of the new short skirts and brightly patterned tops.
No unnecessary ruffles, frills or glitter—the line is vintage Benetton with plenty of solid colours, neat contours and casual chic.DIVYA KUMAR
