Zara’s spring summer collection is now available in their stores and I did go to pay them a visit – Thrice. Before I begin talking about my views on collezione Zara 2012 I must tell you that Zara is one of my favorite clothing brands. I have so much of it in my wardrobe that my dad has christened me “Ms Zara” which BTW I Love !!
They have a wide range of collection including TRF range and a good mix of classy and trendy casual range. Though they most often than not keep very muted colors and yes a lot of Blacks and Whites but I still love them. I feel Zara has the best collection of Whites especially shirts.
Coming back to their Spring Summer collection in the Indian stores I feel a bit disappointed. It looks very very bland and lacks spice. I don’t know how it works but the website of Zara India shows still better stuff than what is available in stores. If someone knows the reason pls enlighten me.
I didn’t even find these cute looking shorts that there model Saksia is wearing for S/S campaign.
The collection did look pleasing to the eyes when they released their new campaign and like many I had shortlisted my picks. I was so disheartened when I did not find those pieces on the racks.
The collection is bang on trend but lacks spice for eg. Peter Pan collars were seen to be very dominant in the collection be it dresses or shirts or tops but they failed to make me want them
They also have an embellished version of these collars but the styling was a little off. That deep front cut was so unnecessary.
Prints were seen a lot. Some were floral, some were busy, some were all over. Again lacked spice. Though the one in the middle with black cigarette pants or even white pants will look good but whats with the jacket??
and all you can see is Pastel, Pastel and Pastel.. Yeah team them up with a bright skirt or a bright pants, they might work. Might being the key word

The only peplum on the rack (sadly) was the white one (INR 2790 approx.) Pair it with these cute printed shorts (INR 2500/- approx.)and some high heels will also make heads turn.
These are a few pieces that I am thinking about. Other than this there are nets, a few polka dots, trousers and jeans, some formal wear etc etc.
What do you girls think about the collection. I am sure many of you would have gone and seen too. Did you find it interesting??
Do and please do share your views while I do some thinking on whether to spend my moolah on the shortlisted stuff.
PS : This is Zara India collection (Mumbai to be more specific)
