20.11.2012- M&S SS13

Tuesday, 20 November 2012

With winter now well and truly underway, I'm sure I'm not the only one longing for longer evenings, warmer weather and the prospect of being able to leave the house without wrapping up in woolly layer after woolly layer. Whilst spring seems a fair way off at the moment, there's plenty to look forward to when it does arrive- picnics, iced tea and enjoying the sunshine with a good book in the garden to name just a few. On top of this, there's an abundance of new season fashions to look forward to, and last week I was lucky enough to be invited along to the Marks and Spencer SS13 preview to have a sneak peek at what they've been working on for next year. Held above their flagship Marble Arch store, this taste of spring style was the perfect antidote to the gloomy winter weather, and I was really impressed by what was on display:

 

As well as a core collection of M&S classics (think immaculately cut tailoring, suitcase staples and amazing accessories), the SS13 collection is really driven by high fashion and a variety of catwalk trends. Mono Pop encapsulates geometric patterns, monochrome combinations and a super sophisticated edge and Print Fusion is all about making a bold statement with oriental style prints, vibrant colours and statement accessories. Dolls House (my favourite collection) encompasses a vintage inspired silhouette, a cross-section of lady like details and an abundance of sweet shop shades. Urban Utility offers a classic slice of style, texture and elegance, all dressed up alongside a rich colour palette focusing on mustard yellows, deep forest greens and sunset-inspired ambers, and Modern Luxe is the perfect take on effortless chic. In addition to the womenswear collection, the lingerie for SS13 is another sure-fire hit. As well as another collaboration with the gorgeous Rosie Huntington Whiteley, M&S have invested in a range of new garment technology, creating a collection of 'light as air' and body sculpting pieces which are destined to become best sellers. Other highlights include a range of vintage inspired longer-line bra sets and re-imagined shapewear, as well as a trend inspired neon collection. I'll definitely be at the front of the queue to snap up the SS13 collections when they arrive in store next year!

Do you like the look of the M&S SS13 collection? And are you looking forward to spring as much as I am?
