So earlier I mentioned that I would be talking about USE UNUSED Spring|Summer 2014 lookbook. Well now is the time I review it.
Before I go on, just remember that I am talking about the design and layout of the book and not the clothing! This is important for all you self-proclaimed fashionista girls who might stumble upon this blog and expect a detailed account about the designer. You can find that here.
Anyways, the lookbook is definitely my style. At first glance you see the white, clean, sharp lines and then the contrast comes in from the different pops of colors from clothes. The layout is very simple with two prints per page. The images are very consistent, each with the model and her reflection shown in the background. I love the mirror in the pictures. It gives the viewer more details about the garment that they might not be able to see with a simple front view.
Accessories are highlighted towards the end of the lookbook with their images as stand alone shots with the model only showing her hand which tells you where to focus.
This lookbook is for the upcoming Spring|Summer 2014 collection. The use of the green plant helps bring color and the feel that this collection is meant for warmer weather. The font used at the bottom of each page to describe the garments and accessories fall in line with that of the brand. It’s clear, easy to read and gives you the information you need. Credits are given at the end of the book to show who all was involved. Its always amazing to see how a simple, clean looking book could involve so many people.
Overall, the lookbook is a good reflection of the brand and answers all the questions that a buyer, journalist or stylist would need.
