Next – Spring ’15 Press Day

After feeling unwell over the weekend and the early part of this week, and it really taking it’s toll on me, today was just what the doctor ordered for a cheerful pick me up…. a Next Press Day in Central London!

I love Next (who doesn’t?) and having been invited to a number of their press shows before, I have actually become quite partial to them. The lovely people behind the scenes always put on a fab day…. showcasing next seasons delights, providing a delicious array of refreshments and arranging a mini spa area where we can have our hair, nails and other little mini pampering treats, if we desire!

Today, it was all about their Spring 2015 products, brought to us from a trendy building just off Carnaby Street… Great location for a start!

Walking into the event was exciting, lots of gorgeous fashionistas milling around, photographers snapping away and of course, beautiful merchandise. I wandered around having a good look at everything, here are some of my favourite pieces……

next spring 15This oversized armchair immediately caught my eye, the fabric design just screams ‘Spring’ and it was incredibly comfy too, love it

next spring 15 The soft furnishings, as you would expect from Next, were beautiful. All of them! Lots of lilacs and pinks around, with shades of green and teal quite prominent also. Love the knitted foot stool in the top right photo, I have seen a few like this now so I think this is definitely a new trend!

next kids spring 15Onto the kids range. Next can’t do any wrong in my eyes where the kids clothes are concerned. They get it spot on every single time…. I could honestly buy every item they sell for my children! I am loving this stunning lemon print fabric that’s being used in a few pieces for the new Spring ’15 season, such a happy, pretty design! And these cute broderie anglaise wedge sandals for little girls are so on my wish list, my daughter would love them.

Moving on to the womenswear, which is obviously very extensive for each season, but on press day they don’t have every item on display, but rather a selection from each range. There were lots of colours that we’d associate with Spring; shades of yellow and green seemed the most popular.

next spring 15I love this unusual fluffy top, it reminds me of one of those twenties fringe dresses. The mink spaghetti strap dress is ever so pretty in fine lace detail and lastly this beautiful pale lemon suit is divine.

next spring 15Silver was everywhere, especially in shoes. The four pairs on the left here were all definitely on my wishlist!

next spring 15 shoesThese had to be favourites though, just because of those see through heels! So cool and unusual…. gotta have a pair!

This clutch bag deserves a mention also, it’s brilliant, very retro!

I had a fantastic afternoon at the press show. Child free in London’s swanky West End, frittering my time away amongst the beautiful things that we can expect to see in Next stores from January. Can’t wait to buy some!

    I couldn’t actually pay attention to anything else in this post apart from that ARMCHAIR…. I LOVE IT!!! 😀

  2. It sounds as though you had a fantastic time, I was a big fan of Next but for me personally, they seemed to lose their way a few years ago.

      Really? In which department do you feel that? I think there’s always something for a variety of tastes in Next?

  3. Oh my word so much nice items cant wait to see them in my local store.

  4. I love their new collection! I find I go in fits and starts with Next, love one season, not the next. This collection looks fab!

  5. I want it all! but mainly that clutch bag!

    I absolutely love the fabric on that chair – it makes me look forward to seeing the rest of the range!

  7. Lots of lovely things as usual. Next haveopened up a brand new big store in Sheffield that I haven’t had the chance to visit yet.

  8. I don’t buy in next to be honest for no particular reason but it looks like you had a great day!

  10. I love Next. They always have so many wonderful pieces in their collection.

  11. Next always have some really nice homewares in their stores – I rarely buy from there though! I love the round foot stool!

  12. I think next really have their finger on the pulse right now. I am lusting after some silver glitter shoes
