The sun may only just be breaking out from behind the clouds, but today, F&F got us all excited about AW15. Yep, we know, it’s pretty bad luck to wish away the summer. But can you blame us when the wintry season looks this good? Tapping into the ’70s trend in a major way for next season, the brand brought us a gloriously retro collection, packed with simple separates and stand-out buys we can’t wait to wear.
Think high-necked, pleated dresses with pretty lace detail, wrap dresses layered over polo necks, floppy hats, colour-block shift dresses and entirely covetable, knee-high boots in the softest suede. Ah yes, the suede. Fashion’s current texture-obsession has carried over into autumn, and it looks like F&F will be leading the high street with its amazing array. Zip-front frocks, culottes, belted coats; this was one suede-fest we could really get on board with.
But as well as lusting over just about everything, we also managed to catch up with some of the FROW’s leading ladies, including Ashley James and Vanessa White from The Saturdays. We asked them exactly what they thought of the new offering, and they even let us know which pieces are top of their wish lists already.
Check out our interviews with the celebs above, and be sure to make note of the autumn item you’ll be buying first. Trust us, you’ll need to be quick off the mark.
