Last November I was lucky enough to be invited to the Clothing at Tesco press day, and even though I was feeling very ill that day, actually sleeping on the train all the way to London, I knew that this was one preview event I really didn’t want to miss.
The theme was linked to the World Cup in Brazil, which will dominate Summer 2014 for at least half the population. So we got lots of bright colours, citrus, neon and primary shades that just popped and dazzled so beautifully I was instantly in love. We also got beachy vibes in ethnic print maxi dresses and skirts, playfully teamed with bikini tops and thin glitter knits, and some sandals that will be finding a place in your holiday suitcase come the summer months.
But it was not all about Brazil – despite the theme. I was enchanted by the ladylike, elegant Jackie Kennedy dresses and boxy jackets in pretty coral and pink shades. And there were plenty of accessories to help you transform your current wardrobe without spending a fortune.
This was a really lovely collection, and I also got to meet TV presenter and actress Lizzie Cundy, who just looked so beautiful, and was also really lovely too.
