M&S Autumn Winter 2014

I love the ‘Fall & Winter’ season in this country. It’s pure bliss for a few short months. This is the only time when you could actually wear the furs and leather and all the rich and luxurious fabrics. Woolen jackets & scarves, boots & gloves (okay maybe not gloves). But you get the point. The wardrobe in this season tends to be that one notch more stylish than any other season while at the same time exuding a rich & luxurious aura.

Marks & Spencer Autumn Winter 2014 collection for women is defined by five key trends;

Gentle Woman– Luxurious cashmere and wool layers in powder pastels set the tone, with printed silks and injections of colorful faux fur creating a vivid tactile contrast. This sumptuous fabrication is matched by intensely feminine hues creating a modern lady-like direction

Modernist– Minimal separates are graphically punctuated by block color in a dynamic new print direction. Striking primary highlights give sculptural shapes a bold update.

The Arts– A rich collage of tone and fabrication build a dramatic textural landscape; decadent embellishment and moody blooms meet blanket checks and statement faux fur in a collision of opulence.

Down Town– Playful pastels offset with textured metallics create a chic mod-esque aesthetic. Iconic shapes are given a feminine overhaul in blush tones and cornflower blue. Vivid jacquard and high shine layers provide a striking modern edge

Simple Luxe– A purist exploration of luxury sees soft construction and chic tailoring meet in a minimal take on sophistication. Deep russet and warm greys create a sleek tonal backdrop with a subtle masculine sensibility.

Opulent jewel tones and a shine of jacquard metallics provide visual pace for a decadent winter mood.  A depth of texture sets this collection apart, contrasting layers of sultry leather and colorful faux furs create a tactile yet chic collage which is punctuated with rich embellishment and vivid print.

I’m loving the presence of pastels in winter wear. I have a feeling that my days will be much more colorful with this collection.

I’m definitely in love with this plum wool.

Of course the rest of the collections is warm and colorful. I’m sure to visit the store this weekend to select some iconic pieces for my winter wardrobe.

Have you seen this collection yet? How do you like it? I would love to hear about your favorites at M&S.

About Kunjal

I believe that Dubai runs on 2 parallel universes. I have 2 blogs catering to each sphere of these universes. My love for the Dubai 'BLING' & extravagance is the soul food for the DazzlemeDubai blog. Interiors & beauty constitute most of the posts on this blog if not all. Fashion adds the oomph quotient to this over the top, high end & luxury blog. The need for everyday necessities & best buys or new products on the aisles of supermarkets, drugstores & hypermarkets made me start the second blog - aisle101Dubai. This blog covers all the must haves for day to day living with exciting offers, first day sale previews and loads of information on the correct product within your budget. Like every blogger, I'm hoping that everyone enjoys reading both these blogs as much as i love writing them! Oh Yeah, The Disclaimer - The views are all mine on all my blogs, nothing to do with my employer!!
