Next Summer 2015 Press Day!

Monday 16 February 2015

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to the Next Summer press day! If you're a regular reader you'll know how much I love their events and press days, the team put a lot of effort in and they're always visually inspiring. 

I think Next's clothing and accessories are to be becoming more stylish (and younger) with each season that passes, I'd need both hands to count the new pieces I want in my wardrobe this Summer. My favourite item was the Airmail clutch bag, it's a really good size and I'll be buying it and soon as it drops... Before it sells out!

Next Summer 2015 Press Day
Boho Summer Fashion

The press day was held at the Ham Yard Hotel in Soho and the setup was just beautiful. It had a somewhat Anthropologie vibe going on. My favourite collection was really boho and full of loose fitting garments - think Free People but affordable! I definitely want some of the gypsy style blouses and the little denim shorts with crochet on the bottom.

Next Summer Shoes
Nautical Summer Fashion
Highstreet Stacking Rings

I tend to wear Next shoes to work because they're so comfortable and don't break the bank. These cute turquoise sandals will go perfectly with a pair of skinnies or a sweet Summer dress. I hope they come in various colours so I can stock up my work shoe-drobe!

Pink Next Platforms
Miniature Ice Cream Cones

During the day we were treated to nibbles and cocktails (although I mainly opted for tea and cake). Both the food and the service was fantastic, I couldn't resist the miniature lemon meringues and these tiny ice cream cones! The tastiest flavour was the one on the left, rhubarb. NOM.

They also had a selection of Summer homeware on display and my favourite pieces are shown above. This Summer, Next are introducing a range of hand painted pieces at great prices. This is something I never expected a high street store like Next would do, and both Steph and I were very impressed by the quality. I can see this collection doing REALLY well, the beautiful lamp shown above is just one of the pieces we loved.

The press day was also the perfect excuse to hang out with Steph of FAIIINT, blog events are much more fun when you go with a friend and we have the best time together. Thank you much to Next for inviting me, I can't wait until I can start building my Summer wardrobeThankfully I don't have to wait much longer as everything above is due to go on sale next month. Huzzah!

Do you shop at Next? Are you excited for their new Summer collection?

  1. Next isn't a shop that I visit a lot, but perhaps I should start to! That airmail clutch is perfect, I will most definitely need to hunt it down when it hits the stores.

  2. The boho collection looks so amazing - I very rarely shop at Next, I usually only go in there at sale times to pick up cheap work dresses! I'm going to check out these lovely bits though. Abby xx

  3. In deed the pieces seem so nice! I also love this clutch bag... Love the retro and navy vibes <3

  4. The new range looks amazing - definitely agree with them getting younger and more 'wearable'. The nude heels and the crockery is my fave!

    That clutch is cute. I don't shop at Next much, but I will have a shifty when the summer collection comes in.
