I had a great time at the Debenhams Autumn-Winter 2015 press launch at Glasgow’s Blythswood Hotel last week. The entire first floor bar area was given over to showcasing this season’s trends – and the rows of white mannequins cut a real dash. The event focused on the Designers at Debenhams collections – which this season include a couple of new labels, Nine by Savannah Miller and Jenny Packham for Debut. I was particularly smitten by this gorgeous dress by Jenny Packham (below left), which stood out from the rest.
Savannah Miller’s new range, Nine, embodied a rock chic vibe – with lashings of black suede fringing and gorgeous skinny scarves a la Kate Moss. Some of the colours of the clothes were a bit grungey for my taste but I thought this patterned shirt was lovely.
And it wasn’t just the day clothes that were covetable; there was some beautiful lingerie to ogle too. I especially liked the elegant range of pale pink and black lace-trimmed lingerie by The Collection, of which this pretty wrap was a stand-out.
Like the wrap, this next dress exuded old-school Hollywood glamour – and could have come straight from Joan Crawford’s Mildred Pierce wardrobe!
