As someone who is a bit petrified of colour, Ne-Net and other similar brands hold a sort of horrified fascination for me. As with this summer’s colour blocking trend, and famous fashion bloggers/street-snapped fashionistas who are able to magic stunning coordinates from a jumbly mish-mash, I can see the appeal and I think it looks great. On other people. I’m not sure I’ll ever really be able to fully get over my black phase (aside from a rather fetching all pink outfit I wore at age 13 – bright pink flared corduroy trousers, awesome!), not that I want to, but seeing this frankly fantastically bright collection from Ne-Net I can see a little colour working it’s way into my wardrobe. Well, maybe…

The return of the furry Russian hat! Also; the tri-colour stripes look great with the rainbow bobbly necklace – It’s a touch art teacher, but I like it.

I love the hints of gold, and the colour combination is just stunning.

Hello, there’s menswear too! Those trousers look really comfortable…

Again, lovely colours – and isn’t the model so adorable?!

Really love the scarf as a means of incorporating colour and patterns.

Such a charming dress! Oh, and is that a face on the hat? I really hope so.

Cute jacket! Perhaps a little too ‘English schoolboy’ for Samuel, even though he was one himself.

POW! Now that’s a pop of colour! You can really see both the Scandinavian and Indian influences here.

Somehow the clashing patterns don’t look horrific – alas, a styling skill that I don’t possess.

BAM! Well, you wouldn’t lose that in the laundry basket.

Slightly more natural colour scheme, one that wouldn’t be out of place in Daikanyama, perhaps?

I can’t help but think of sailors! Must be the blue.

Very cute, and totally on trend for this summer too – add some bright patterned scarves when the weather cools down.

Oh, of course I have to mention the amazing hats…

And a special guest…

Elephantastic. Hoho! (Sorry, couldn’t help it.)

So there we have a selection from Ne-Net‘s autumn winter 2011 collection – there’s over 60 looks in total! What do you think? If you’re as allergic to colour as I am, has it changed your mind at all?

  1. Amazing. Ne-Net has inspired me since I saw it my first time in Tokyo. Their use of mixing color, texture, and patterns is great, and I love their character art as well. They have some amazing pinback badges/buttons that can really make a boring style stand out more.
