    This spring’s Limited Edition will hit stores just as we are starting to dream of the perfect spring wardrobe. The collection is influenced by retro sport styles, combined with a more preppy look. We have challenged the classic base of the collection with new volumes and peppy colours, to create a wonderfully fresh spring look

    Newbie is growing rapidly in popularity. In order to meet the great demand while we start to establish ourselves outside of London, we embark on a summer tour by bus.

    Camilla Wernlund, Newbie’s International Expansion Manager
