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.
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.
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.
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?
