The new 2012 Summer Catalog from Urban Outfitters presents a collection of summer-perfect clothes for men and women. In line with the funky and the hipster standing of the label, the lookbook is gorgeously captured by photographer Charlie Engman with the help of models Anja Konstantinova, Naomi Preizler, Ali Michaels and Eric Ramos. The catalog complements the season and is pictured against blue shorelines, small villages and breathtaking sand dunes. It’s edgy and modern with elements of bohemian fashion reflected in between. Whether you are a beachcomber or looking to make a statement with your everyday wear, the summer catalog from Urban Outfitters has several options in store.
A glance at the lookbook and you can easily make out that the emphasis is on prints. From vintage-inspired tie-dye to on-trend ikat, prints have a prominent place in the summer catalog. Patterns are bold and add a splash of color to your outfit. From ikat-printed pencil skirts for women to patterned shorts and sneakers for men, prints dominate.
Although the look is clearly casual and nonchalant, metal studs glamorize the collection. We find studs embellishing everyday denim shorts and making jeans an alluring and coveted choice for a nighttime ensemble.
The summer catalog from Urban Outfitters offer endless possibilities for the young fashionista. The look caters to the boho chic with fluid silhouette tops, waterfall skirts, high-waist shorts and skirts and vintage accessories. However, on-trend fashion trends seamlessly translates to the catalog with neon minis, colored jeans/shorts and cropped tops.
Perfect for the summer weekender look are monochromatic jumpsuits, laid-back printed rompers, easy breezy maxis, tube tops and sundresses. Although simple, the outfits maintain their flirty vibe with sexy cutouts and feminine details.
For a sassy nighttime look, fashionistas should check out a delicate and sexy lace mini dress aptly called the “X-Ray dress”. It’s a perfect choice for the audacious to make heads turn during their nighttime escapades.
Accessories find a prominent place in the collection and maintain the retro-vibe with quilled necklaces and fringe bags. Shoes are on trend with colored sandals, flatforms with ankle-straps, printed slingbacks and more.
No summer collection is complete without their swimwear line up. The new catalog translates its key elements to the swim collection and offer fashionistas printed bandeau tops, floral one-pieces and polka dot high-waist bikini bottoms.
