                     Collections for Spring-Summer 2010
                     is a fantastic journey in a balloon by
         Bertrand Piccard and Brian Jones, who started
         out on 1st March 1999. Their long journey lives
         on in the garments in this collection, through
         the special processes the fabrics underwent to
         give them a lived-in look. Napapijri chose four
         key legs in the balloon’s journey to represent the
         collection: Morocco: the start of the season, in
         which cotton prevails over linen and colours are
         neutral, ranging from indigo to “desert”, with
         splashes of vibrant hues like bright green and
         ochre in the men’s wear and Madagascar green
         in the women’s, giving the garments ruggedness
         and tone. Nepal: The colours are warm and
         sandy. Barbados: this leg is dedicated exclusively
         to the women’s collection, in which neutral
         colours produce sensations of restfulness. Cape
         Verde: this is the summeriest part of the whole
         collection; fabrics are specially treated to make
         them genuinely lived-in, inseparable travelling
         companions; the graphics are cheerful and
         flowery, the colours fresh and bright.                                           SUpERDRY. SUpER cOOL.

                 he story behind SwitchFlops by Lindsay Phillips is
                 like a dream come true! Lindsay Phillips decorated her
                 flip flops in high school for an art project, using buttons
                 and odds and ends. She then decided to use Velcro, and
     perfected her design. After working in the leather department
     at Ralph Lauren for some time, she launched her own company
     in 2007, to immediate success. She has won, among others, the
     International Stevie Award for Single Market Company of the Year
     in North America, and the Emerging Business of the Year Award.
     The idea is simple: select a shoe, select a strap and you can change
     your look as many times as you like! SwitchFlops are available
     exclusively at El Corte Inglés. There are three SwitchFlop shoes
     to choose from: the classic flat in black, brown, white and blue, the
     classic wedge in black and brown, and the kitten heel in black or
     beige. There are over 30 straps to choose from: beach styles to
     crystal evening designs.
