Here’s our round-up of the big events in the fashion world, including new collections, a bargain website and a fab discount. What’s not to love?…
M&CO TURNS 50
One of our fave high-street stores hit the big 5-0 this week, and to celebrate it’s brought out a new ’60s-inspired beatnik collection that we’re slightly obsessed with. We’d wear this bargain blouse and bag with slim-fitting trousers, pointed shoes and a flick of eyeliner.
Beaded collar blouse, £20 (in the sale, so get it quick!), 8-22. Dogtooth chain bag, £20. Both M&Co.
ROLAND KLEIN COLLABORATES WITH MARISOTA
Amazing news for designer fans, Roland Klein (who has worked alongside the likes of Karl Lagerfeld) has created a gorgeous collection for Marisota, featuring beautifully draped dresses and cosy knits. A luxury look without the need to re-mortgage our house – love!
Purple kimono-style dress, £48, 12-32. Knotted belt, £20. Both Marisota.
NEW BRAND LAUNCHES
Elitzia is a brand-new website we’ve just found. It takes the hottest season’s trends and adapts them into figure-flattering shapes for women of all ages. Everything is under £35, too, so you won’t feel guilty filling your online basket! A great website for bargain hunters with a keen eye. And, the best news is, there’s a 25% discount for Essentials readers – just enter Essential20 at the checkout. (Discount valid from 6 September to 6 October 2012.)
Spotted palazzo trousers, £18, 8-20. Loose-fitting Magyar top, £16, 8-20. Both Elitzia.
