Spring has sprung! (In store at least!)
This week has seen the shop completely transform into a spring oasis, with our new collections from Weekend by MaxMara and Jumper 1234 adding to the collections from Paul Smith, Marc Cain and many more that we have already started to welcome in store. The shop is filled with spring colours and prints which are becoming a perfect tonic for the world outside the shop, bringing us that much needed joy.
This first drop of the Weekend by MaxMara collection is all about clashing patterns, with florals being juxtaposed with stripes and gingham for a modern take on the floral trend. There's some gorgeous spring knitwear perfect for wearing right now, including a beutiful striped cashmere knit that looks fab layered over a shirt. There's also some great trousers in the collection, from the perfect (and very flattering!) wide legged jean to a khaki trouser with amazing waist detail that look equally as great worn with a knit or a shirt and trainers as they do dressed with a smarter blouse.
We're so pleased with this collection which we think is super versatile and can be adapted to reflect your own personal style, there's some great pieces to update your current wardrobe as well as some standout pieces for those special occassions. But one thing they all have in common is that they are all carefully crafted from the highest quality materials and are made to stand the test of time, they are pieces you can wear now and treasure for years to come.
Let us show you a little touch of what is in store from Weekend by MaxMara right now!
Clashing prints were a huge hit in this Weekend by MaxMara collection, the gingham contrasted with florals makes for a fun and stylish look. These trousers are a great fit with a slight kick flare and look truly amazing on! Wear for those special spring occassions with heels. Trousers £179. Floral Shirt £289
The drape on this skirt is simply divine, it floats beautifully in person for a very etherial look. Teamed here with a simple pink knit and espadrilles, but can also be worn with the floral shirt to give it the look of a dress, perfect for weddings or christenings. Weekend by MaxMara also teamed with the pink stripe cashmere and trainers for a casual and edgy take on the look. Skirt £274. Shirt £289
A super flattering style for that laid back look, these lightweight cream denim trousers have beautiful hem detail which gives them that extra special edge. £185
A classic Breton with a fresh colour update, this is a great straight shape so perfect for layering. Layer under a denim shirt and team with wider legged cream jeans for a tonal look as we have done above, perfect teamed with trainers for an easy to wear look. Or layer under the clashing prints as Weekend by MaxMara have done for a twist on the classic. £98
Wide legged jeans are a look that is not disappearing any time soon. It might be difficult to step away from your usual denim style, but if you were going to do it, these are the jeans to try. The high waisted fit is super flattering and the legs are shaped in a way that makes them wider but wihout too much of the bulk you can so often get with wider legged jeans. £165
Every wardrobe needs a classic white shirt, and this one from the latest collection is a particularly great shape. A reaxed boyfriend shape which looks fab tucked into your jeans, with wider, 3/4 sleeves for a fresh take. The quality is just brilliant! £185
This cashmere stripe jumper really is a thing of beauty, with a beautifully rich and vibrant pink. We've worn it alone with denim or layered over a shirt. But MaxMara clashed the print with the floral pleated skirt for a super fun look. The quality of this piece really is amazing! £310
They say that Khaki trousers are a wardrobe staple and the attention to detail in these Khaki trousers is something to be admired! With a waist detail to give these trousers that added something special, they are tailored for a flattering fit. Wear with trainers and a white shirt or chunky knit for a relaxed look, MaxMara clashed the casual style of these trousers with a pretty floral blouse which we absolutely loved! £205
Fairisle has an update for spring with a lightweight cotton knit and the most beautiful and subtle spring colours, Thus cardigan has such beautiful detailing and shape, in a slightly cropped style perfect for teaming with high waisted trousers. £199
The photograph doesn't quite do justice to the beautiful tone of pink in this mac, it's a lovely warm pink which looks absolutely gorgeous on. A perfect spring jacket with the attention to detail and tailoring we all love and expect from Weekend by MaxMara. A piece that will truly be tresured for years to come. £449.
A boyfriend shape, this shirt is a great addition worn tucked into wider leg jeans for that effortless look.
A versatile wardrobe piece, this denim dress will keep getting better with age as the denim continues to soften. An easy dress for making you feel great in the everyday! £255
