LOOK’s Fashion Director, Hannah Hughes, takes us through the final preparations for The LOOK Show at her pick of the best catwalk outfits.
It’s Thursday afternoon and we’re in the midst of model fittings for The LOOK Show. The Polaroid camera’s working overtime and the hallway has been turned into a makeshift catwalk.
As promised I’ve picked out my favourite items from my final three shows, starting with the amazing shoes from Monsoon! Now it has to be said that Monsoon shoes are not always up there in the cool factor – holiday flats yes, but heels sadly not. However their new spring/summer 2011 footwear collection has broken the mould and most of them will be appearing in my wardrobe ASAP!
Next up is Marks & Spencer. We all know their underwear is fab but after spending many hours in store I’ve also discovered their swimwear department is also a hidden gem. Having fitted this swimsuit on super-skinnies and curvies, I can tell you it looks hot, hot, hot on both. After it’s appeared in The LOOK Show I predict a sellout, so get yours now and store it away for your summer hols where you can wear it poolside with a cool sporty blazer.
Last but not least, Next. Their spring/summer 2011 collection screams ‘70s and nothing shouts the hippy chic decade better than a gorgeous patchwork leather bag and a tobacco blouse. I’ve styled it up with this seasons ‘It’ trouser, the palazzo pant, but you’ll have to wait until the show to see just how good it looks.
