Warehouse Manchester Arndale A/W2014 Preview

3 Sep

Last week I was invited along to Warehouse at Manchester Arndale to see their new A/W2014 collection.

So, after been greeted by our fab host, Dom, and given our VIP passes, we were served prosecco and cupcakes as we perused all the lovely new clothes on the rails

The first thing to say is that, if you bought a dusty pink coat last A/W, you can breathe a sigh of relief as it is just as on trend this year as last. Soft pastels in candy floss pink and sweet ice-cream shades in lots of fluffy textures were everywhere and Warehouse have rocked it up a bit by pairing it with black.

I loved the 60s inspired “gangster’s moll” collection. This look is so easy to wear, combining leather and lace together effortlessly.

Another one of my favourite looks was this preppy look with cute pinafore dress and white shirt. I loved the clever addition of white sandals so it can be worn now. When the weather gets cooler just swap the sandals for a cute pair of pumps. I think it would look great with a pair of coloured opaques rather than too much black.

Coords (that’s a top and skirt or top and trousers in the same print) are big news this season and what’s not to love! They are so versatile. They can be worn together or separate. I think this little top would look fab with a pair of red skinny jeans.

Anything take your fancy?

We all got together for a hilarious group selfie:

We were given £50 to spend on the night I quickly zoomed in on a print pencil skirt and then found this gorgeous statement necklace that matched it perfectly. I went out for dinner last night and teamed them with a cobalt blue top and sandals from Zara plus a cute little clutch from Stella and Dot.

Thank you to Warehouse, Manchester Arndale, Helen Seed Pr and Leanne Forshaw Jones PR, plus the amazing Dom, who has given me my favourite new word “Smasual”.
