Coleen’s new range has finally landed on site, and after seeing Coleen grace the pages of nearly every magazine we lay our hands on today we have to say we’re very excited about it all!
Last week we gave you a sneak peek behind the scenes at Coleen’s photo shoot for her new collection, so to celebrate the launch of the range today we’ve released a video that gives a bit more insight into Coleen’s style as she picks out her favourite pieces from the collection. It must have been a tough job, we’re not sure we could pick out just three favourites but the best thing about Coleen is that she knows what she likes, and boy has she chosen well! Watch the video on our You Tube channel, where you can also find last week’s behind the scenes video.
Coleen kicks off with the dress she’s chosen to wear to film these videos, which is this stripe dress with gemstone embellishment. The print is bold and stripes are on-trend all year round these days, they’re not just resigned to the nautical trend which rears it’s head every summer, and Coleen has done a fab job of bringing stripes into Autumn 2011 with a mixture of rich colours and the black embellishment to give it a bit of glam and a subtle nod to the festive season. Oh come on, we all think of Christmas when we see a bit of sparkle.
Next up is the ruffle front blouse with a paisley-style print in those deep red shades that just screams ‘Autumn’, and also just happens to scream ‘Coleen’s style’, which we imagine was the look she was going for and is why we all love Coleen’s designs. Not one to follow trends, but to keep up to date and reference them when the time is right, this blouse fits perfectly with the 70s trend which came to life in Spring, is holding on through Summer and is bound to be one of our top trends for next season. This blouse just proves that the 70s trend was made for Autumn, and we can’t wait to wear ours with dark denim flares and fabulous chunky heeled boots.
Coleen’s final favourite pick is this stunning watercolour-effect dress that just reminds us that despite the weather it is actually still summer, and these colours would look perfect with some strappy sandals and oversized sunnies. Then throw on some opaque tights and black heels and accessories for another take on the look when the weather changes again. It’ll become your all year round go-to dress, which is what makes it one of our favourites too.
So Coleen has picked well and we love her favourites. Although looking at the rest of the collection we don’t think it’s fair that she was only allowed to choose three! Check out all of her new designs online now or watch herbehind the scenes videos on her You Tube channel.
