How many of you can remember the first store you shopped at? Or what was the brand of your first piece of clothing? Tough no? For me its quite easy. Having been born and raised in Africa, options for clothing brands were limited. So my entire childhood wardrobe was furnished from Marks & Spencer courtesy of my dad’s business trips abroad.
My fashion dependencies on Marks & Spencer continued childhood beyond and I remember monthly trips to the first M&S store in Dubai in Deira. M&S is known for its quality fabrics and well-tailored pieces that are great for mixing-and-matching. However, I must admit that I haven’t shopped at M&S much in recent years as I felt it was lacking punchy and youthful pieces; however the Autumn-Winter 2014 collection proved me wrong. With luxury fabrics such as cashmere, wool and leather, in a color palette of bronze, black, silver and red, there’s something for everyone this season.
My picks from this collection include the preppy tops and plaid skirts that would be great for work; embellished jackets that can be worked into the layering trend; winter coats in a range of hues for your Christmas travels; and quality accessories featuring booties, sandals and jewelry.
M&S has stepped up its game in recent years with campaigns featuring Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Ryan Reynolds, I’m excited to add M&S back to my shopping destinations going forward. The Marks & Spencer Autumn-Winter 2014 collection is now available in stores across the GCC. Visit the M&S Arabia Facebook page for the latest updates.
