I hope you all like looking at fashion-y photos! I got really carried away when I recently attended the press preview day for the Next SS'13 collection in London and therefore this post is a big old photo diary sharing some of the snaps I took on the day! I'm so happy I've finally got this post up to share with you all the lovely things headed to Next next summer, as it took me a while to go through them! (Teaches me for being far too snap happy for my own good!)
So yes, the preview day took place in the basement of One Marylebone which was a really great location as the lovely people of Next turned it into a perfect summer retreat! There were gorgeous flowers scattered everyone with projected water ripples over the walls and a very happy looking Buddha placed towards the back! It really was a stark change from the windy weather outside. We were also treated to some yummy sushi and freshly made rum cocktails which really helped get into the summer vibe!
Below are my photos of the Homewear collection for summer next year! I absolutely adore browsing and buying lots of nick-nacks for the various bedrooms I've had in the past and with a re-dec of my room on the horizon, I definitely picked out a few things I would love! It also got me thinking about what I would love to have in my dream house when I move out such as the big vintage wall clock and shabby chic drawers.
HOMEWEAR -THE TRENDS- Good Life // Blossom & Bloom // Boat House Salvage // San Diego & Elegant Twist.
The next photos are all of the Womenswear collection set to be filling the Next stores come Spring next year. As you can see plenty of fluorescent brights and feminine pastels will be carried through from this summer with lots of beautiful laser cut and lacey dresses teamed with tailored blazers for work wear and evening. In terms of patterns, florals and tie-dye features were very present, with splashes of metallic, sequins, subtle studs and textured details to compliment them. In particular from the accessories, I was loving all the shopper bags and wedges with quite a few pairs of flatform sandals also on display and the retro inspired sunglasses!

Overall I had a fab day per-oozing through all the collections, big thank you to Next for inviting me!
