New Look

I always try not to prejudice certain brands/shops and keep my eyes open because you never know where you can find something you'll like. I don't always succeed and that's why sometimes I get pleasant surprises like New Look.

Por lo general trato de no tener prejuicios ante determinadas marcas o tiendas y mantener los ojos bien abiertos porque nunca se sabe donde puedes encontrar algo que te vaya a gustar. No siempre lo consigo y por eso a veces me llevo gratas sorpresas, entre ellas New Look.

The few times I visited England I was in some of their stores and the idea of buying something never crossed my mind. However, some days ago while browsing their lookbook for next season I found wearable clothes. I cannot say whether they are good or not in terms of quality, but the fact is that the design has improved greatly.

Las veces que he visitado Inglaterra he estado en alguna de sus tiendas y nunca se me pasó por la cabeza comprar nada. Sin embargo, he podido ojear su lookbook para la próxima temporada y hay unas cuantas prendas que me parecen ponibles. No puedo hablar de ellas en términos de calidad, pero lo cierto es que el diseño ha mejorado mucho respecto al pasado.

Also, since Alexa Chung starred in the spring-summer 2009 lookbook it seems the English high street store is looking for new targets. Perhaps, it's because their customers are getting older and New Look wants to mature with them (?)

Y es que desde que Alexa Chung protagonizase los anuncios de la temporada primavera-verano 2009 parece que ésta marca del high street inglés busca nuevas metas. ¿Quizá sea porque su consumidor se está haciendo mayor y New Look quiere madurar con él?

I prefer NewLook to Topshop. The prices are more reflective of the quality. LLGxx

To be honest I am quite tired of the Alexa hype, but glad some of the things she has worn have gotten a 'better' reputation recently, like the Ferragamo flats for example. Pure style. I just wish our generation had other young women to admire and be inspired by, for reasons beyond (but not excluding!) clothes - where are our Patti Smith's, our Marguerite Duras's? maybe I'm a bit blind..

Is New Look anything like Atmosphere? Here, in Poland, Atmosphere is a huge trend when it comes to young ppl's clothes. It can be bought only via internet, though, and I've heard it's lousy but catching up on trends easily and really cheap.

El tema del total look negro es curioso. O enamora o no hay manera por dónde cogerlo...
En los demás, según quién, of course, me gusta mucho, en mi, como q no.
Creo q además del tono de piel, es la constitución. Soy de constitución pequeña y de negro me suelo ver con pinta de enfermiza. Salvo en verano, q al mostrar más carne y piel, se ve q de enferma nada!
