News
Splash 2009
Dominant themes include 80s Power, Warrior Goddess, Sartorial Man and Country Romeo

The Splash Autumn Winter '09 Collection is a shot of power and energy that has potential to jolt its customers out of recession fatigue with the most fashion forward line ever. The collection brings us a glimpse of the international fashion renewal in the truest sense and makes dressing up for any occasion a complete joy.  In line with Splash's brand statement 'Eye on Design', the collection adapts key designer trends across international catwalks for pocket-friendly high-street styles.

Women can now dress for success and unleash their power ensembles by sporting the `80s Power Dressing` trend this fall.  As the structured and tailored look returns, it brings along a futuristic twist to season chic. Exaggerated sleeves, powered shoulders, body con dresses and tulip shaped skirts in streamlined silhouettes bring out the theatrical impact of 80's fashion. You can lend expression to the power woman in you with leather jackets, burnished metallics, mesh and furs accentuated in antique gold, berry tones and blacks. 

Women remain power draped this season with yet another key trend: The Warrior Goddess. Embracing the ultimate reincarnation of bygone Greek and Roman influences, this line showcases sensual soft dressing coupled with studded leathers to reflect attitude. Winter whites, soft antiqued gold and burnished silver in fabrics like satin charmeuse, luxe wools and furs are tailored into mystical pieces like the much loved one-shouldered dresses, draped goddess dresses, and leather dresses.  Outerwear of the likes of studded leather jackets, biker inspired jackets complete the look making it a definite winning formula.

The high street fashion is incomplete without a dash of casual chic. Splash does it this time with `Country Grunge` that's all about multilayered silhouettes that combine punk attitude with something almost whimsical and playfully naive.  Blanket plaids, cocooning jackets and knits are teamed with the contrast of soft florals and sheers in eclectic and wearable mismatched combinations. Casual long line tunic knits and peg-top pants are styled in brushed cottons and denims for an earthy mix of downtown-meets-the-country look. 

The men's line consists of varied themes allowing choice of simple, futuristic and traditional dressing. Sharp accentuated styles pronounce urbane glamour.

The simple `Sartorial Man` is a basic collection of ultrafine fabrics. Sharp fittings and clean cuts make way for classic tastes like chinos paired with yarn dyed checked shirts and tailored jackets. For the flamboyant, `Futuristic Dressing` is the call for evolution of the next millennia. Skinny jeans and trousers coupled with waist coats, long printed tees, kurta tees, printed sweats and hoodies highlight the theme. Get back to roots with `Country Romeo`. Checkered trousers, shirts with bow collars, shirts with stand up collars, 3 piece suits in plaid fabrics in blacks, grays, browns and winter whites are big in A/W09. Your wardrobe would seem incomplete without the double layered trench jackets, dress shirts, shawl neck sweaters and padded bomber jackets that dominate this season's collection.

The Autumn Winter 2009 Collection is up for grabs at all Splash outlets across the UAE from 25th August, 2009 onwards.
