To The (M&S) DRESS*
*And that co-ord. And that blouse. Ooh, and that jumper, tooé
Summer hasn’t even really started yet (sort yourself out, weather), but after getting an exclusive preview of Marks & Spencer’s AW17 edit, we’re already looking firmly ahead to next season. The high street stalwart has gone from strength to strength in the style stakes, with every collection, impossibly, outdoing the last. However, even we couldn’t have predicted just how chic M&S’S autumnal offering would look.
A mix of luxe textures in rich hues, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re gazing upon Rocha’s new wares. You’re not, though. This is stuff you’ll be able to pick up on a Percy Pig/ Dine In For £10 run. Now, we know what you’re thinking: what good is it if I can’t buy it right this second? Well, what if we were to tell you that you can. Once again, M&S has rolled out the designerbeloved ‘see now, buy now’ retail model following its AW17 press preview, making a selection of the pieces purchasable four months ahead of schedule.
Dubbed ‘The Dress Edit’ – even though it includes a silk culotte co-ord – a selection of six standout buys is available now for your shopping pleasure. Choose the floral midi, the cobalt shift or the two-piece in question to feel suitably smug and ahead of the curve until the rest of the collection hits stores come August. Like they say, good things come to those who wait…
