M&S has become a store worth visiting for more than new undies (although still THE destination for the perfect bra), with beautiful pieces across all collections, and the latest TV creation from the brand shows this. Another glamourous advert that shows all of their sub-brands in one space. If you haven't seen it yet, watch it here and your in for a treat.
After seeing this on TV, i decided to see what else the super brand has in store for the British highstreet in AW14 and found these amazing press shots - many many more online but these were the looks that grabbed my attention and i could see slotting into my wardrobe. A great mix of colours, trends and items - in particular i am excited for the pastel pieces and sixties influences.
My "New Arrival" loves.....lots of snuggly lovelies in this years collection, the fur gilet is perfect - why shouldn't a girl be cute and cosy?, plus some more edgy pieces like the leather skater dress (leather is definitely not a fabrication i would have associated with this previously labelled old lady brand). The Ponte dress, a fabulous mix of simple colours and print but in a very wearable piece, great for the office especially teamed with this season ankle boots and the on trend slogan clutch, something to rival the goodies in Accessorize - all perfect additions to any wardrobe.
Boucle zipped jumper £32.50, Moi? clutch (not on site yet, seen in preview),
Faux fur gilet £69, Leather ponte skater dress £249, Colour block tunic £45.
M&S is a brand that has surprised me season after season, perfecting a healthy balance between the new, stylish elements and the more classic that the older customer still wants. A triumph in terms of gaining new customers but also retaining the existing, something a lot of modern brands could learn from.
My only annoyance is why weren't they this stylish when i worked in store and got discount!
