From Victoria Beckham to Boden we’ve been busy previewing all the autumn/winter 2014 collections and here is your behind-the-scenes sneak peek of the best.
Handbag go-to brand Modalu have a new addition for autumn/winter 2014. Meet Erin, named after British fashion model Erin O’ Connor, this tribute collection also features clutch bags in blue, black and wine.
Hello, stunning Ravel courts. Next season these pretties are available in pink/leopard, and black/zebra options. The luxurious suede finish will look fab with rock ready leather trousers, simple dresses and staple denim.
With its delicate lace work and dainty floral print, Phase Eight have party dressing sorted this autumn/winter 2014. Look out for floral skirt and top co-ords too.
A departure from punky red checks, New Look brings us beautiful upholstery gingham for autumn/winter 2014. It’s nice to see this prim pattern move away from frocks and onto accessories, and just think how knockout they’ll look worn with tailored three-quarter length trousers and a top.
Metallic florals are huge news for autumn/winter 2014. At Monsoon, statement printed coats are key. Look out for collarless styles featuring bracelet-length sleeves and don’t save them for parties – as you can see here, they look great with jeans and a white t-shirt too.
Mint Velvet offers a sea of chic grey for autumn/winter 2014. Try rocking a tribute to Victoria Beckham by working a grey pile up – this dress, with matching grey shoes and a bag should do it. Jacket-wise, grey marl updates the classic biker here. A wear-forever classic.
We love this smudgy, arty print from the autumn/winter 2014 Mary Portas line at House of Fraser. Proving white can work for winter, pick out the electic blue with a coordinating court shoe or make it more of a day dress by adding a loose cardigan on top and slipping on some boyish brogues.
Marks and Spencer’s oriental bomber jacket is back for autumn/winter 2014. A huge hit in spring/summer, now the silky cover up has had a winter-over with a dark print and exotic flower finish.
Colourful, gemstone jewellery is going nowhere this autumn/winter 2014. Whether a statement necklace, gobstopper ring, dangly earrings or spangly bracelet is your thing, just be sure to make sure it’s colourful and dripping with gems!
Meet autumn/winter 2014’s mega falttering new frock shape. With a sleeve finishing just above the elbow, elongating seams and a waist cinching belt, this graphic frock is your new BFF.
For autumn/winter 2014, the ‘It’ knitwear piece is set to be a sleeveless fisherman ribbed jumper. Perfect for layering over a white collared shirt or maxi dress, it’s the layering hit of the season and Gap’s red number is first on our list.
Dresses that look like a top and a skirt – that is what you’re looking for ladies. Co-ords have been a huge hit and now these 2-in-1 dresses are set to sky rocket. Coast’s molten lava print is so captivating in the flesh, we just know it’s going to be a sell out.
Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez are fans of the sleeveless blazer dress and it’s the sexiest new party frock around. Boohoo have it spot with this bright pink finish for autumn/winter 2014.
Part fantasy floral garden, part Persian rug and part Russian princess, we just love the blend of prints going on here. Asos’s amazing autumn/winter 2014 ‘It’ frock has slightly longer sleeve making it mega flattering on the arms and the hip-skimming, loose fit makes it the comfiest dress buy around. Top marks, Asos.
Victoria Beckham has whipped up the prettiest bugs we’ve ever seen for her autumn/winter 2014 prints. These playful creepy crawlies feature on multiple VB frocks and tops next season so start looking out for high street tribute patterns now. As for the glitter collar? Well, who doesn’t like a little added sparkle on their party dress?
Queen of the dreamy shoe, designer Sophia Webster has our hearts thumping with her amazing new collection of electric bright stiletto heels and pom pom topped sandals. Let them stand out with a simple little black dress, or work a pair into your day wardrobe with skinny jeans and a statement printed blouse.
Have you spied cool Belgian label Essentiel yet? Crammed with stand out street wear, hero dresses and hot accessories, this brand is a real find. With its sequin emblazoned ‘On Tour’ slogan front, we can’t wait for this animal print sweater top to hit stores. A new weekend classic!
Folli Follie is a bit of a secret handbag go-to of ours. Exceptionally well made, ultra luxurious and featuring clean, bold shapes, colours and finishes, Folli Follie accessories are real outfit game changers. For autumn/winter 2014, orange is key and this sleek across body design is our prime target!
Behold the new ‘It’ print to be seen in. Graphic jigsaw patterns are the way to go for autumn/winter 2014 and Paul & Joe’s colourful offerings are just the thing to get you started. This boxy top will look great with summer’s midi skirts white we can totally see the shorts looking bohemian cool with black tights and knee high boots.
Known for embracing sequins, London Fashion Week cult designer Ashish hasn’t disappointed this autumn/winter 2014. Splattered with hundreds of rainbow coloured sequins and owning the best motto out there, ‘Love Will Win’, we just know it’s only a matter of time before this baby sells out. Try yours with leather trousers on a night out, or with blue denim and trainers for a street spin.
Liberty prints never fail to impress and the autumn/winter 2014 edit of amazing archive patterns decorating these silk scarves are just dreamy. Double sided so that you get not one but two Liberty patterns in one accessory, invest and one and it’ll forever be your leather biker jacket’s BFF.
Hit East London newcomer House of Hackney has teamed up with Puma to create these awesome trainers. Each features signature House of Hackney animals – from exotic birds to monkeys – and the plush velvet finish makes them the most glam trainers we’ve spotted in yonks. Sell out alert!
We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again, sweaters are going nowhere for autumn/winter 2014. Markus Lupfer takes the iconic British fish and chips shop logo and makes it a playful statement on cosy jumpers. Give it a street style spin by wearing it with a pleated chiffon skirt and strappy sandals.
Slip on skater trainers have become a bit of a new shoe classic replacing ballet pumps for the school run and morning commute. Cue Senso’s amazing new models. In checked weave and textured velvet if your slip-on’s aren’t luxurious this autumn/winter 2014, they just won’t do!
Introducing the virtual press day! The first of its kind, Lulu Guinness seriously impressed us with a ‘press day in a box’ this season. It’s pretty hectic in the LOOK office and we often struggle to dash around to every launch we’re invited to, so when Lulu brought her autumn/winter 2014 to us via a video, complete with champagne and popcorn, we were super grateful.
Jewellery emporium Cadenzza is a must if you’re a fan of head-turning jewellery. These chunky chain and jewel-encrusted offerings from Mawi prove the statement bauble look is still strong for autumn/winter 2014. One piece at a time though ladies!
H&M Studio is H&M’s finely edited selection of luxury, trend-driven items. For autumn/winter 2014 it is all inspired by the 90’s and a little bit of bohemia rock thrown in for good measure. You could totally imagine Kate Moss running around the 90s club scene in this bralet and tee two piece.
How pretty are these jewel-adorned courts from Boden? If the huge gobstopper gem on the toe wasn’t amazing enough, the smaller round and teardrop gems scattered around the rest of the shoe takes these pretties next level. Don’t wait until Christmas to wear yours though, these will look awesome with jeans and jumper for a bit of Cinderella glamour.
With painterly brushstroke checks and a stunning green hue, this dainty autumn/winter 2014 frock from Boden is one of those designs you’ll love forever thanks to its vintage vibe. Try clashing a bright shoe and lip, or layering a jumper on top to transform it into a skirt.
The autumn/winter 2014 Boden press preview was a true feast for the eyes. Blingy collar necklaces were presented on eyecatching metallic clutches, while patriotic British trinkets sat with beaded jumpers and t-bars. We wanted to move in!
Don’t expect these red and pink tweed shoes to last five minutes when they hit Boden this autumn/winter 2014. The colours alone are enough to totally transform the dullest of outfits but imagine them worn with equally zingy patterns and colours? Dreamy!
Everyone should own a silk shirt, and for autumn/winter 2014 make it this stunner by Damsel In A Dress. The rich forest green looks so regal and it really does feel super soft to touch. Available in the spring/summer collection now in lemon, baby blue and blush, snap up yours early.
H&M Studio is crammed with butter soft leather, fluffy burnt orange knitwear and amazing printed maxi’s for autumn/winter 2014. Due in stores later this year, we predict the red trousers will be a celeb fave!
