All things yule might be the last thing on your mind in this heat, but boy do we have to tell you about the exclusive Next Christmas press show, unveiled at One Marylebone.
From supersized cardigans and bold turtleneck sweaters all the way through to sparkly dresses and furry stoles, the theme for the collection was opulence, luxe tailoring and a little bit of sparkle. Roughly translated as: what Next does best.
Guests were treated to homemade smoothies, breakfast and a rare appearance from model faces including Jourdan Dunn, Anja Rubik and Jacquetta Wheeler. We were even spoilt with walks from teenage catwalk sensation Lara Mullen!
For all the astute fashionistas among you, there was plenty to note. You could do worse than invest in a sheepskin gilet, black jumpsuit and metallic skirt or trousers this autumn/winter. Oh, and the ubiquitous ’60s trend is still very much a thing. Happy Christmas in July! Next, you spoil us.
