The Brand New Magic Of MARKS & Spencer
If there’s one reason to feel good right now it’s the new collection from M&S, which proves that this high street stalwart just keeps getting better. Don’t believe us? Just look…
It’s often said that fashion is a young person’s game. Trends are but a fleeting phenomenon, the pace is relentless. How, then, do you explain the 132-year-old force still managing to create classic, well-made, utterly irresistible clothes that undoubtedly appeal to just about every age group?
That force is, of course, Marks & Spencer, which, after announcing it was closing stores at the end of last year, has bounced back with a spring/summer collection that’s so good we can’t stop looking at it. There are some serious showstoppers: chinoiserie silk tops tie at the waist while billowing midi skirts look hand-painted. A gingham ruffle skirt promises to be a sellout (it’s not dissimilar to the Monki version we spotted on almost every Insta blogger), a fuchsia dress with trumpet sleeves is reminiscent of Roksanda, embroidered denim jackets are paired with blush tulle and there are summer dresses that are the stuff of our holiday dreams.
And that’s just the clothes. Lace-up ballet flats, petal-print kicks and Céline-inspired totes help make up the accessory haul, which is every bit as impressive. To go through the entire lookbook is to feel the sort of desire so intense it almost evokes a sense of panic. But don’t worry: while the accessories have been available for a while now, much of the collection is only landing in stores and online from now onwards. So your brand new wardrobe won’t be missing any of that M&S magic.
