The Sunday Sun – 10.09.2006

On the edge.

All Saints is a step up from the main high-street fashion stores… both in terms of style and price.

On the edge - All Saints

Right: Cream illustration T-shirt £30, Hand embellished camisole £60, Button detail black trousers £70, Necklace £50, “Jesus Rocks” belt £50. All at All Saints.

Their autumn-winter collection for women shows strong, individual designs giving wearers an edge in the fashion stakes.

We have focused on some of the more affordable items in the collection, which manages to be chic yet with an “alternative” feel.

The use of soft fabrics with intricate patterns contrast with over-sized leather shopper bags like the one pictured, an investment buy at £140. It could even be used as a laptop or weekend bag.

Be admired in the hand-embellished range of garments. The knee-length dress we feature also comes in sophisticated black. A similarly intricate, spaghetti-strapped camisole is also available, pictured here with button-detail trousers.

Jumper dresses are back this season and the All Saints silver lurex version with batwing arms and front-pocket detail is rather special.

Why not finish the outfit with their sexy back- laced stiletto heels and some sparkle from a longer length necklace?

Belts finish an outfit perfectly and All Saints have distinctive designs for both waists and hips. Take a look at their coin belt, available in raspberry and other colours.

There is also a small selection of delicate jewellery pieces with items ranging in price from £30 to £50, giving an exclusive feel to any outfit.

Some jewellery items also have matching bracelets and earrings, such as the bronze, tassel necklace and bracelet featured opposite.

All clothing this week is from All Saints, unless otherwise stated. They have a store in Market Street, Newcastle, and a large concession in nearby Fenwick.
