Its seems like and age ago that I went to the wonderful Xmas In July River island Press Day showcasing the coming collection for AW14. I took so many photos as there were a huge number of pieces I loved and I’ve been dying to show you a selection of them on here.
The collection ranges from stunning pastel fur, knits and soft metallics to rich brocade and leather. Stand out pieces for me were of course this orange dress which you might have spotted on my Instagram on the day. Regular readers will know I adore orange, its my favourite colour at the moment and this show stopping mini number with floor length sheer panels was to die for. Imagine this for a evening function or party – gorgeous!
I also loved the deep burgundy coat with burgundy fur trim, I love this colour for Autumn Winter, its so rich and luxurious.
The jewelled grey beanie was also something I’ve put on my wishlist – I reckon this would be so great for London Fashion Week. I love how embellished it is, so pretty.
On the day we were treated to yummy drinks and lobster rolls as well as some very interesting edible smoke!!!! Plus they had an amazing tree with lots of little gold and silver necklaces hanging which you could choose one of and have it engraved with a letter or your initials. I loved this idea, really different and much more personal than a goody bag.
I can’t wait for some of these items to hit shops, its making me so excited for Winter. Let me know what you’ve got your eye on??
