NEXT A/W 2012 PRESS DAY


Last Thursday i went down to London with Kavita to attend the Next A/W press day in one of the rooms at Somerset House. It was the most perfect location with balconies over looking the courtyard and we we're spoilt with drinks, sandwiches and sweet treats. It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon to the hottest day of the year.

I'm a real A/W fan, i always find it so hard to know what to wear in the summer and feel comfortable (I'm all for chunky knits, layers). In true A/W form Next will have a lot of dark colours so there's your typical burgundy, greys, browns and blacks but there's a lot of lighter neutral shades too which i really like. They have the transition between Autumn/Winter spot on with light weight jumpers and cardigans in lighter shades such as oranges, reds and cream. Of course it wouldn't be A/W without your tailored jackets, tweed and tartan cardigans/coats so it's great to see a good selection of items featuring those themes. Next have catered for the party season too as sequins were everywhere! Lots of sequin details on tops, dresses, shoes and bags. Studs will also continue to take this year by storm with studded detail on blouses and accessories.

The selection of home wear is beautiful, a lot of it takes a vintage feel with the white wash units, tarnished wire frames and clocks. There's a nice range of floral accessories which is a trend we've seen for a while now. My ultimate favourite item though is the thread candle holders! How amazing are they?! I want one in every colour!

I fell in love with so any items from this collection and I'm really looking forward to seeing them hit the shops later on in the year. I really did have a lovely day so big thanks to Next & Ellie for inviting me!

  1. Wow, theres some really lovely items! I wish I had Next out here, especially their home wear stuff, that was always cute!

    Love the Miu Miu inspired shoes and also there was some really nice bracelets in amongst them. Might have to have a browse online get some stuff shipped internationally sometime.
