ON THE FROW WITH M&S

Last week I found myself sitting on the frow with M&S. In honour of  M&S being this season's sponsors of London Fashion Week, they held the only official LFW event outside of the capital. Part of the bottom floor of the Market Street store was transformed to hold a live catwalk show, to showcase the M&S Spring collections. Most of the pieces featured will be in-store 26th March, although some are already available. The outfits were showcased in six different collections:

Best of British was a classic collection made in the UK, using mainly British made fabrics. The colour palette was a beautiful mix of white, primrose, grey and navy, and featured timeless pieces such as linen suits, shirts and stripes.

Summer of Love was a fusion of relaxed tailoring and subtle florals, mixed in with plenty of textured pieces: suede and chiffon featured heavily, and the retro look was completed with platform sandals.

Into the Blue concentrated on shades of blue; everything from dramatic navy to pretty cornflower shades. Double denim was shown, and tailored striped pieces were paired with laid back denim, and retro flares.

Uniformity was a sleek collection, and probably my favourite. The focus was on clean lines and monochrome details, yet outfits featured a utilitarian edge, such as a heavy buckle or a green parka. The collection was full of smart shoes, jumpsuits and sleek pencil skirts.

The Orient showed pretty oriental and floral prints, and focused on separates that could be mixed and matched to create different looks. Wide leg trousers and sleeveless jackets were key.

Modern Romance featured lace and sheer fabric, mixed to create a really feminine collection. Sexy black dresses and leather trousers were shown alongside blush toned and cream lace pieces to form a dramatic and flirtatious end to the show.

As well as the show we also saw a short film with all the highlights from LFW and a talk from the M&S Style Director, Belinda Earl. M&S treated me to a lovely black and white geometric clutch from their Limited Collection, as well as some Autograph makeup and of course some Percy Pigs. Thank you to M&S for having me!
