Myself and fellow Midland fashion bloggers were invited along to a special SS12 preview of collections at Harvey Nichols last week, to see just what was in-store for ladies that like a little luxury in their lives…
I personally really love the collections for the new season, a gorgeous combination of blush nudes and neon brights, as well as easy-to-wear soft colours and draped fabrics. A similar theme of simplified structure and feminine fabrics flowed throughout.
We were shown pieces from the collections and we were talked through each look by Stuart Dixon, the Assistant Retail Manager for Womenswear and Personal Shopping. The outfit below is a favourite, a polished take on the grunge trend. A summery look in nude tones, moving away from the grunge trademark black. This Pinko slip is just gorgeous.
My favourite brand, ACNE, have produced yet another beautiful collection…
The new collection from Victoria Beckham has proven to be extremely popular (with only two dresses left).
I’m more of an ACNE/Wang girl myself.
I love, love, love these Jeffrey Campbell wedges (£95). The perfect summer shoe. However, I’d be about 7 ft tall in these, so I may have to leave these beauties for girls who aren’t already over 5 ft 8″.
We were given a Harvey Nichols goody bag containing Rose champers, GHD heat protection spray, samples of beauty products and a sample of this…. I would highly recommend this Ole Henriksen Truth Serum. This collagen booster smells delicious, and comes in the form of a cooling gel. It tightened my skin and I lost my eye bags instantly (which, recently, have been the size of two Chloe Madeleine’s).
I’m not usually a beauty kinda girl, but I’m going to get saving for the full-sized bottle (£53 – 30ml) of this - it really is a miracle cream (well, a gel). I’m sold!
