I hope like me you’re enjoying this weather, it’s glorious and just in time for some of the outdoor summer concerts. Wish I could say I’m going to some of them but instead we’ve lots of fun days out planned with the kiddies!
Myself and Michelle were thrilled to be invited to preview Penney’s Autumn/Winter 2015 collection. Michelle was also lucky enough to attend their Summer preview back in April but for me it was my first time.
We arrived in the head offices to meet with the Penneys PR girls who could not have been any nicer or accommadating! Always so refreshing to meet such lovely genuine people.
After the great day they put on in April, Penney’s completely outdid themselves yet again. As soon as you walked in you were greeted by a fantastic spread of appetisers and mini desserts, not to mention mini bags of macaroons which I’ve wanted to taste for ages. Had to cheat a little on my healthy eating plan, oh well 🙂 They’d also cool “drink me” bottles which you could have filled by their on hand barman with fruit infused water or be really bold and go for some craft cider or bottled cocktails..cosmo anyone???
Now let’s talk about more important stuff and by important I mean fabulous which is exactly what the clothes were!!
The collection consists of four main themes;
Fitzrovia – Bohemian inspired with a nod to the 70’s which we have already seen in the Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Think rich neutral tones with a range of fabrics such as suede and fur layered together.
Celebs who would rock this look – Sienna Miller, Vanessa Hudgens
Dark Victorian – Think romance and you think lace, velvet and soft textures but now it has a darker, moodier undertones perfect for winter.
Celebs who would rock this look – Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen, Kiera Knightley
With the Band – As any good groupie knows you need to rock some leather, spiked heels and minis if you’re going to “rock with the band”!!
Celebs who would rock this look – Kate Moss, Laura Whitmore
Frontier – Get to the front of the fashion line in some gorgeous snug knitwear, draped with fringe pieces. They’ll provide a contrast to the other key trends.
Celebs who would rock this look – Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba
Shoes & Accessories – The shoes & accessories across all fours themes were amazing and such fantastic quality. Take a look for yourself;
Of course let’s not forget the makeup. This range gets better and better and we were lucky enough to receive some samples such as a Kylie Jenner inspired lippie and a stunning highlighter which you’ll hear more about!
Penney’s have really upped their game with this collection with some of the trends also seen on the catwalks of Ralph Lauren, Alexander McQueen, Chloe, Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs! While I’m loving the gorgeous summer we’re having, I for one cannot wait for Autumn when I can get my hands on some of these pieces!!
I’ll leave you now with snaps of the home, mens and kids sections. Enjoy the rest of the weekend…
