Whilst people in the normal world are finally starting to brave bare legs & toes, the fashion world is getting ready to launch 'fall'. Although right now I too am obsessing over brights and bikinis, after going along to the AW15 Primark press day last week, I couldn't help but get a tad excited for what's in store (get it) next season.
Fashion wise -surprise surprise- this year's hottest trend, the 70's, continues and totally dominates the entire women's wear collection. Dresses and skirts are maxi or mini and straight cut. Whimsical boho print is in, as are camel, beige and burgundy colours. Texture is big with fur gillets, suede pinafores and chiffon blouses showcased as statement pieces. Shoes are experiencing serious embellishment with pom poms, fringing, cut outs & lace up fronts. Accessories are having a statement moment too with geometric structures and leopard print bags, alongside chunky gold metals in the jewellery department.
The other area I'm rather looking forward to is homeware. Primark have always got their homeware spot on, particularly for the price point and AW will bring more cute pieces to brighten up your bedroom. The main colour themes are bang-on-trend grey, mint, mustard and copper, with everything from essential cushions, blankets and tea towels, to the not so essential (but highly instagrammable) metallic candle holders and slogan signs. The first thing in my basket come September will definitely be the Earl Grey candle pot. I'm a sucker for anything tea related.
What takes your fancy from Primark's fall collection?
