As we've finally got past the festive season I thought I'd share some of the exciting bits to come for SS15. Now, I know it still feels like a long way off to the time when pastels and florals dominate the stores, but it's always nice to feel ahead of the game. First on my SS15 agenda is Matalan.
This was the first time I'd been invited to a Matalan press event and thought I'd see what they have to offer. One of my best friends absolutely raves about the company, but I've never really given it the time of day until I started to see items of the past few seasons I've adored.
As you know I'm all about home related bits so I initially browsed amongst their decor from cushions to ornaments and so forth. Their SS15 home range is all about giving your home the 'summer lift' so seaside blues, bright blooms, blush pinks and the was a strong theme of shabby chic with vintage inspired items. The whole place oozed a dreamy vibe and gave optimistic inspiration for the seasons to come.
I'm personally on the hunt for some interesting wall art and as I particularly loved this piece, I've of course decided to share with you! This would work ideally in my kitchen or in my new revamped hallway (post coming soon).
As I say I've never actually spent a vast majority of time in Matalan but after discovering the absolute bargains you can get, I will most certainly be shopping in there from now on.
The new women's ranges for Spring/Summer was again classically pastel with some elements but strong prints were seen in some areas especially some of the beautiful bags. I got a seventies meets contemporary feel for some pieces, but with cut away tops and asymmetric shapes made it feminine all the same. I loved the fact they'd kept a previous trend in their collection with collarless coats... I fell in love the with lemon one.
I spotted their fitness gear range and of course the bright colours and excitable prints drew me in. Love the fact Matalan are on board the affordable, fun fitness bandwagon.
All in all a superb collection from womenswear through to home items. A collection that touches on a classic pastel tone but has raised the bar by being more of prominent colour palette. Edgy prints and effortless shapes are the way forward it seems for Matalan SS15... I'm looking forward to when these items hit the shops!
