Spring tidings from Debenhams and Matalan

Ruby slippers and gems

 

Last week’s Spring/Summer Press Days were inspiring. On a cold, rainy day, we were transported to sunnier times. First up was Debenhams. Loved the accessories in hot, popping colours or flattering pastels. Mini collections were inspired by Ibiza, bloggers and retro Sixties.

Equally impressive at Debenhams was the in-house Designers at Debenhams series – standouts were elegant, feminine dresses from Rocha.John Rocha and Butterfly by Matthew Williamson.

Moving on to Matalan next, which was just as impressive across their fashion and interiors collections with some really strong accessories. Will definitely be stocking up in store come Spring.

Matalan has succeeded in coming up with some seriously stylish goodies at such reasonable prices for S/S13. Highly recommended.
