About Wolford Autumn - Winter 2012/2013 Collection

The Autumn - Winter 2012/2013 Collection is characterised by a somewhat surrealist
touch in the style of Elsa Schiapparelli, the famous fashion designer, coupled with
1950s flair and a hint of rock chick attitude. Romantic rose patterns vie with studs,
chains, metal beads and bondage styles.
These contrasting looks clash when Audrey Hepburn meets heavy metal, when
narrow waists are accentuated to contrast full, swinging circular skirts, and rose
patterns are combined with wild animal designs.
Absolute fashion must-haves from the ready-to-wear collection include wide circular
skirts as well as tight pencil skirts, figure-hugging pants as well as wider, Marlene
Dietrich style trousers. Boleros and cropped jackets accentuate the female silhouette.
Through the skilful application of an alternating opaque and sheer trompe l’oeil
technique, bodies are cleverly given a bondage look, whilst tulle and lace panels
feature in all the right places to catch the eye. Trendy metal studs adorn soft merino
pullovers, skirts and dresses, brilliantly bringing classic styles up to date by adding
some rock chick flair.
Bright shades of red and begonia dominate the colour range, complemented by
darker shades of red and purple, blue, wheat beige and classic black.
Legwear is undoubtedly the focus of this winter's fashion: through bondage look
patterns or the strong interplay between two contrasting designs and eye-catching
style elements such as roses, bows or diamonds. The collection's highlights are
models decorated with trendy metal studs or sewn-on biker-style studs and chains.
These themes continue in the LEGCESSORIES range. The designs repeat the
romantic rose theme as well as the bondage concept which inspires the whole
collection. Whether leather, lace or fabric, these accessories strikingly complement
any outfit. The alternative, low-key approach to this daring theme features satin
ribbons, fabric roses or even a fur pompom. The scarves and belts in the
ACCESSORIES line also match these fashion styles, both in terms of colour and
finish. Rose patterns adorn shiny silk, animal-inspired patterns feature on softly
caressing wool-silk mix scarves, and the fantastically designed leather belts with
metal studs or laser cut rose patterns are a super addition to all dresses, skirts and
This season's LINGERIE is nothing short of a celebration of the female figure. Dotted
or houndstooth patterned in a figure-hugging jersey fabric, or made from delicate lace
combined with sheer tulle, or in a plain but elegant combination of satin and tulle –
this is special occasion lingerie that is also suitable for everyday wear. Two of the
four lingerie ranges are characterised by shaping bodies and high-cut briefs,
including a shapewear half-slip that can also be worn as a seductive suspender belt,
and a sexy bodyshaping slip dress. The ranges are completed by matching bras in
various styles.
Sophisticated black is underlaid with an elegant nude shade, or bright begonia and
dark fuchsia.
