Not that I’ve not been loving the sunny weather lately, but I must admit that when it comes to fashion, I always prefer winter. Layers! Thick fabrics! Dark colours! So despite the sweltering heat outside, I was pretty excited to catch Ted Baker’s AW13 collection on the catwalk last week.
This season had a bit of a travel theme (“take the scenic route”) and featured both the men’s and women’s collections. There was a slight 20′s, 40′s and 60′s vibe, with lots of old school glamour – beautiful hair and red lips – as we saw everything from day wear, Christmas party dresses (yes, I said the C-word), coats and great accessories.
Highlights for me were the ‘hairy bags’, both the clutch and tote versions, the dark floral print and many colourful coats. The accessories in general were very strong this season and I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for them. And what’s best of all, of course, is that some of this collection has already started landing in stores and online, so no need to wait. You can find my pick of the new season at the end of this post!
On the way out we were treated to a little preview of the accessories. I’ll take all the loafers, oui?
Many thanks to Ashanti for masterfully editing these pictures for me!
