NEXT have got it going on this season and you better make sure you don’t miss out!
I had the great fortune to be invited to the super swanky Soho Hotel to preview NEXT’s new collection at their NEW-IN event The suite looked beautiful; pastel, tribal and floral prints popping out against the London night skyline. It was easy to feel how this collection could fit and work into my own wardrobe. With a leopard here and a swirly candy candy cane there, the atmosphere of the event fully reflected the fun and fresh appeal of the pieces.
The other ladies were getting their glamour on by getting their hair styled in lovely waterfall braids whilst I had my nails painted to match one of the new prints featured in the NEW-IN collection. The amazing nail artists managed to paint such details flowers on my nails and I have had so many compliments on them throughout this week!
Whichever trend has caught your eye this summer, NEXT’s new collection has got everything to satisfy your wandering shopping eye. Featuring fresh prints, pretty pastels, trendy espadrilles, sexy sandals and touch of jungle fever, NEXT has delightfully created a collection that features all of this summer’s key trends. But more importantly, they haven’t failed to ensure that their pieces are accessible, wearable and can slip stylishly into any lady’s wardrobe.
The swimwear captured the global and tribal prints that featured in Valentino and Pucci’s key looks this season.
As the Oscar de la Renta collection accented floral patters, the new NEXT collection sees beautiful floral bursts too, with dresses, jumpsuits and a wonderful pair of pointed stilettos.
Pastels pieces with pleats and in wonderful textures are a crucial part of this collection, rounding up the looks seen on the Burberry Prorsum catwalk.
For me the most clever way that NEXT have brought the catwalk to the highstreet is with their demin look floral print – this is print that I decided to go with on my nails (in the picture above!) It works wonderfully as the print for one of their key summer dresses, and brings the look of DKNY and MaxMara to a widespread audience.
Their shoe collection really impressed me; the espadrilles are a sure way to do casual but chic this summer, the pointed stiletos will take a day outfit right on into the night and a very special pair of white strappy sandals caught MY eye…. definitely on my WISH LIST (and the matching white handbag wouldn’t go a miss too!)
An all together fabulous event, but more importantly a strong and and (i’m sure) sought after collection! Thank you for having me NEXT!
