Coast is one of my favourite high street stores. All the pretty formal dresses and pretty details really appeal to me. It really is the go-to shop for weddings and parties and I always really enjoy going to their press days to see what they have in store for us next season. Last week I popped to their AW15 press day in London. Everything was absolutely beautiful and I saw lot’s of things that would work well in both a vintage and modern wardrobe.
This collection takes inspiration from the 60s and 70s with clean silhouettes and pretty details. As usual there is plenty of lace and sequin detailing which is joined by plenty of sumptuous faux fur.
The Lydie all over sequin dress was one of my favourite pieces. Despite the heavily embellishment the simple design makes it timelessly classy and elegant.
The black, white and pale pink monochrome colour palette is absolutely beautiful worn together. The Constanta coat looks remarkably like a fine vintage piece, I adore the colour and the fur trim.
Similarly to the SS15 collection feathers also feature prominently. The Leona dress is a simple pink designs with a strong feather embellishment on the hem.
There were plenty of darker tones too with blacks and red tones. The fabrics are all beautifully textured and can be layered with fur accessories.
The luxurious long black dresses remind me of the glamour of the 30s while fringing brings us back to the flapper look of the 1920s.
Probably my favourite piece is this beautiful indigo blue tapeworm dress accompanied by the blue fur jacket. It is so elegant and ladylike. I have a similar dress in my collection from the early 1960s.
In a brighter shade of blue the Romina skirt is absolutely amazing with its feather and diamante details. This is one of those items that everyone will notice.
If I buy anything next season it would be the gorgeous Luella faux fur scarf, it would go with everything and add a little old school glamour to the simplest of outfits.
There were so many beautiful pieces there that I simply couldn’t share everything with you, so you’ll have to wait and see what else is coming in later in the year! What are your favourite pieces?

What lux, gorgeous pieces and detailing. I’m especially taken with all the sequences and fur (and am suddenly in the mood to dress for New Year’s Eve! :)).
