If you’re not a fan of rummaging through the post-Christmas sale rails, swerve the scrum and head to Peacocks with your money from Santa. The bargain store is launching their first ever ‘pre-collection’ in selected stores and online on Boxing Day, offering a taste of the new season trends before SS12 properly hits the shelves.
Originally created by designers for women who holidayed abroad in winter, pre-collections now bridge the gap between autumn and spring, so devotees can get their new trend fix early. Inspired by SS12 catwalk looks, the Peacocks drop is just the ticket to break away from the sparkle and sequins of the Christmas collections. Called Boy Meets Girl, there are contrast placket shirts in leopard print, polka dot and monochrome, Peter Pan collar playsuits and light draped jackets to freshen up your wardrobe. The perfect excuse to tear yourself away from the Quality Street tin on Boxing Day, surely? On second thoughts, pass the laptop instead. GG
Peacocks pre-collection starts at £20.
