A host of key press and fashionistas stepped out for Marks & Spencer’s Autumn Winter 18 showcase last week.
The showcase was held at their famous rooftop café on Grafton Street, and guests were given a sneak peek at what’s to come from M&S in the colder months.
Francesca Zedda, Head of Trend Content for M&S, introduced attendees to the new pieces coming to stores, including The Foundation Edit – which offers a curation of wardrobe essentials.
The AW18 collections include a host of new pieces, from LBDs to luxe faux fur coats, all inspired by different themes.
Autumn sees the arrival of Poetic, as top to toe colour takes a new feminine direction.
Consumers are promised a palette of pinks to set the tone; from soft blush and rose, to rich burgundy and fuchsia.
Sartorial sees classic shapes and chic tailoring reworked through a sports luxe lens, as emerald green and cobalt blue update the aesthetic.
Classic check separates meet quilting, wool blends and leather for a strong fabric direction. This palette continues into lingerie as the soft, sporty silhouette is elevated.
Arriving in Winter, Soft Heritage explores sumptuous layers of animal print and caramel tones, with a hint of lilac lifting the overall mood.
Hero dresses and statement pieces, are elegantly pared back, for a modern interpretation of the season. Meanwhile, a rich colour palette of teal and ochre, are punctuated by dramatic accessories, to depict luxury with an edge.
The Autumn Winter 18 collections place flattering fit and versatility at the heart of stylish design.
The Autumn Winter 18 womenswear & lingerie collections are available online and in selected stores right now.
