'Tis the season to be checking out next year's fashion.. by which I mean attending different brands' spring summer 2014 press days and having a good old nose through the rails to see what we can expect when the weather eventually turns (hopefully) warmer. I recently attended the Great Plains and French Connection collection preview to do just that. I thoughtfully took some pictures so I could show you guys too - all in the spirit of giving!
First up, Great Plains which is a boutique brand in the French Connection group. Admittedly this is not a brand that has previously been on my radar, so I was curious to see their pieces. The colour palette was predominantly blues and greens with some cute as a button prints thrown in for good measure. The shapes are pretty classic, with a few 50s and 60s touches, to me the whole collection made me think of vintage French Riviera - très classy and sophisticated.
The majority of the other rails were taken up with French Connection's offerings so I had a nice long browse through those too. There were some gorgeous pieces which should start hitting the stores around February 2014. There was womenswear, menswear, accessories AND homeware - they've got it all covered! There were loads to look at but here are just a few choice items (i.e. which I would happily buy tomorrow)...
What do you think of this peek into fashion's crystal ball? Are you as excited about springtime shopping as I am??
Thanks to the lovely Monica from Spreaditfast for inviting me!
