Fashion Friday: Latest Collaborations and Limited Editions

This season has seen a whole host of limited collection pieces and designer collaborations that have made the High Street a very exciting place to be.

Last week saw the launch of the collaboration between Kate Middleton’s fave LK Bennett and British designer duo Preen. This collection had already had a preview when it was worn by style maven Olivia Palermo at the recent London fashion week, and it is full of beautiful, timeless pieces that could have a place in your wardrobe forever.

LK Bennett say:

We are delighted to introduce our first ever ready-to-wear collaboration, with internationally celebrated label, Preen. Design duo Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi drew inspiration from the floral watercolours of Scottish artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh to create this timeless collection of luxury silk dresses, floral print skirts and soft knitwear. Rendered in a rich palette of pinks, purples, reds and blues, you’re sure to fall for this elegant capsule collection.

Boden Icons Collection

Another new collection launched this week is the much anticipated Boden Icons collection. This limited edition collection is full of pieces that have a folkloric influence, as well as more classic items that will work with what you already have in your wardrobe.

‘This season’s collection was inspired by the lavish dressing of the early 20th century. We’ve injected a sense of romance into every garment to create luxurious, expertly crafted pieces that are destined to be treasured for generations.’

Brit Girl focus from Boden

With London Fashion Week well under way, tonight’s fashion post focuses on a brand that is well on its way to becoming a British institution itself. Yes, I could only be talking about Boden, with its emphasis on cool British style and wearable trends that are influenced by a range of decades, eras and style icons.

Looking through the new in section, there is definitely an emphasis on comfort as well as luxury. Boden want you to be cosy and snug and warm, but at the same time, they want the Boden woman to look stylish and elegant, even as the temperatures start to take a tumble. And so we have the ‘New Brit Girl’ collection, which is a collection that in Boden’s own words, offers ‘ luxurious fabrics, contemporary cuts and statement making separates.’ Think knitwear, in a range of colours and yarns, dresses that will take you from day to night, in block colour and prints, with differing lengths, and, happy days, many with sleeves.  Winter coats are also making an appearance, but if you fancy something a little different, I am totally obsessing over the Charlotte Cape – super cute and just a little bit super hero too.

Here is my current edit of my fave Boden pieces. Do you intend to add a bit of Boden to your wardrobe this Autumn/Winter?
