Step into Spring: Outsider’s new collection

February 11, 2010 by George Walker 


The always stylish, always ethical label Outsider has given us a sneak peak at its new Spring/Summer collection which centres on the theme of ‘the abundance of life’. It’s a range that is bound to banish all thoughts of winter and snow with its fiery prints and sharp tailoring. George Walker takes a look at this new range of colourful and quirky couture.

Will Spring ever come? Will the snow ever stop? These are the questions many of us might have been asking over the past week, but here at we think it’s definitely time to think warm, positive thoughts by pondering what we’ll be wearing in the hotter months of 2010. A perfect little source of inspiration for you ladies comes from Outsider’s new Spring/Summer collection which is bound to put a spring in your step with its stunning bright colours and sumptuous, ethical materials.maxi

Outsider brought in London based designer Karen Grout to work on the theme of ‘the abundance of life’ for the new range. The quirky yet elegant pieces we’ve seen so far certainly seem to offer an abundance of style, if nothing else. Grout has used hand drawn designs of flowers, spots and hidden insects to instil a modern and unconventional edge to the classic Fifties cuts of her dresses.

All of the garments are manufactured in India at a factory which Outsider has ensured fair working conditions. The Spring/Summer line uses organic cotton manufactured in India and sustainable fabrics such as bamboo denim. All the fabrics are sourced from as nearby to the factory as possible to reduce transportation emissions.

Outsider said: “People want fashionable clothes and they should be able to buy them without worrying about the impact on the world.”

The new collection is available at from March.

    I liked Outsider’s AW09 and wondered what they would do for Spring Summer; it looks great, and seems a cleverly designed range. Bet the fabric handle is good too.
