Very is a brand that I hadn’t really shopped at, before I went to the VeryVIP day earlier this year. I’d seen the adverts on TV with Fearne Cotton, but never been convinced to actually go online and flick through the clothes.
Going to the press days have completely changed my perspective on the brand. The clothes are gorgeous, really well made and use real, weighty fabrics. The other day was the Very AW14 press day and I managed to pop over on my lunch break for a quick look.
High neck trench coats in browns and pastels seem to be what we’re going to be facing this AW. Fine by me, I’ll take that pale blue one with the big black buttons – beautiful!
Cloaks too, seem to be making a comeback this season. Colour and patterns are also here to stay in the form of co-ords and jersey dresses.
Of course, we’re also going to have some metallics – just for good measure. That gold zip top below is just gorgeous!
I am extremely thrilled to see the waterfall fronted jacket come back for the season too, this dusky pink one with satin rolled up sleeves, may be sneaking its way into my wardrobe very soon.
My favourite look of the whole press day though, had to be this stunning green and black patterned two piece suit. The look was finished off with a fur collar, leather T-shirt and black felt hat. The cigarette pants, combined with the tailored jacket worked so well, to create a stylish yet smart look. I’m not sure I could quite pull it off in the corporate world, but if your work dress code was slightly more lenient, can you imagine rocking up to your meetings in that?!
I also managed to get a sneaky peak at the new homeware collections. I might not talk about it alot, but I love interiors. I follow quite a few blogs that talk about interiors and design, and have been known to spend ages scouring the web for home-spiration. Fearne Cotton has designed her own range too, four poster beds, chez longues and soft suede fabrics topped off with statement mirrors – what’s not to like?
Everyone I spoke to, thought the kitchen with all the lights was a little over-the-top, I had to agree, but at the same time, I really love it. If you can afford to live in opulence with exaggerated furnishings, then why shouldn’t you?
So the home-side of things for AW seems to stick to a general autumn/winter pallette – lots of orange and brown for cosy colours, mixed in with metallic pops like lights and artwork to continue the theme from the fashion. I quite like the look of the 4 poster bed against that brick wall… excuse me while I pop back online to peruse the lines again.
