Coast SS12 Interview

Coast are well known for creating beautifully designed, quality garments for the special times in your life, and with the release of their stunning new Spring/Summer 12 collection, we were really excited when Coast agreed to answer these questions:

What were the inspirations behind the new collection?

The inspirations behind the new collection really focus on colour this season. From block brights to monochrome, the main theme is: the bolder the better! We have also played with textures for Spring; there is an abundance of broderie, cut out and appliqué detail on our gorgeous new gowns which emulate the budding spring blooms synonymous with the blossoming season ahead.


Do you follow the catwalk trends set by the big fashion houses?

We follow all the key designers, including fashion blogs and big red carpet events like film premieres and award ceremonies. Our inspiration for designs is global we are constantly researching at various vintage markets and art exhibitions for ideas that can be translated into stunning occasionwear.

What are your favourite dresses from the new range?

A firm favourite at head office is the Celeste Print Dress with eye-catching floral detail; the mixture of electric blue and aqua combine for a fresh and feminine look. The Jazz Mono Dress is another standout design from Coast this Spring which can take you from desk to dinner in style- it is a truly versatile and wearable piece. Oh and I have to mention the Tia Maxi Dress for it’s vibrant colours- this is a perfect style for a special occasion this Spring.

Do you have a celebrity following?

Many celebrated personalities have been spotted in our designs; we hear that Christine Bleakley, Kirsty McCabe and Andrea McLean are quite the fan!
