This week’s what we love highlights the new &go capsule, some of which we saw on international sites the past couple of weeks.
One item that we actually haven’t seen is the &go destination hoodie. It’s not often you see a cotton fleece jacket with a stowable hood, so that’s an interesting choice here. The slightly ruffled back reminds me a bit of the ruffled scuba hoodie from 2 years ago. Based on this photo, it looks like this cut might work a little bit better on shorter shoppers. The length looks just a tad shrunken on the model.
On a similar note, there’s also a new &go destination jacket. The flared silhouette echoes the hoodie above, but this one is designed for bad weather. Note that it features sealed seams, which is a nice weather-proofing feature.
The &go where to dress looks pretty much like your standard t-shirt dress, but it’s made of rulu!
The &go where to skirt is made of rulu, too. It has a subtle zip pocket and reflectivity as added features. (You can see pics of those on the Australia website.)
The new city trek trousers have a potentially cute cropped, tailored fit. I just wish they didn’t choose the back pockets that they did. Oh well. The &go city joggers are pretty similar–ankle length, slightly looser fit. The city jogger pants came out in some form a couple months ago, but I’m not sure if they ever made it to the US, or if it was just Canada.
Lastly for this week’s feature, a couple of technical pieces. It’s nice to see some little snippets of more colorful pieces, since the palette has felt a bit subdued lately–the bright accents are nice. Canada will be getting a pretty sapphire blue swiftly 1/2 zip–this style is popular this time of year so I imagine this being on lots of people’s “buy” list. As for the US, we’ll get an energy bra in new color bon bon, a nice bright pink. If my memory serves, this is the first item we’ve seen this color on aside from some random socks a few weeks back. This pink has a lot more red in it than we’ve seen lately, especially compared to flash light and pink lemonade (here’s a photo of the pink lemonade energy bra for comparison). I like the bon bon color itself, but I’m not sure whether I’ll go for the contrasting straps.
