Selfridges Bloggers’ Event
We attended an evening of fashion, food and beauty at Selfridges recently as part of an event the store had put together for local bloggers.
The evening included a Spring/Summer 2012 trend presentation, a floor walk to browse the products, dinner at delicious Italian restaurant Rossopomodoro and free beauty treats followed by goodie bags for all, needless to say it was a fantastic evening!
The trend presentation took place in The Gallery Restaurant & Moet Bar and we were treated to a sneak peak at key trends like ‘Underwater Love’ (soft blues, seascape prints and floaty fabrics like chiffon) Film Blanche (50′s inspired with an all white colour palette) and Femme Fatale (Black, black and more black with a focus on tailoring.)
Mini Bags and Rucksacks are going to be huge, and we fell in love with this tiny box bag by Prada.
Key Trends on Menswear will include looks like ‘Olympic Influence’ (think sports inspired detailing and fabrics) ‘Globe Trotter’ (for this look our attention was drawn to Givenchy’s use of Birds of Paradise prints and we were also told that Professor Green is a big fan and often shops the trends at Selfridges). Rockabilly influences will be a big player and ‘Class Clown’ featured circus tent-esque red and white stripes on tailored trousers so you’ll see quite a quirky, eccentricity creeping in on menswear for Spring/Summer 2012.
We were given a close up look at gorgeous white products that are exclusive to Selfridges for Christmas and began to lust after this Alexander McQueen bag, beautifully finished in white leather with a golden skull clasp.
We also got to take a closer look at the beautiful new collection from Raoul. If you like clean lines, flowing fabrics and elegant minimalism with contrasts in fabric and texture that are subtle and intelligent, this is the brand for you.
We then enjoyed a walk of the floor where we explored accessories on Level 4, see below for some of the gorgeous finds we’ll be adding to our Christmas wish list!
One of the real highlights of our evening was being treated to a delicious meal at Rossopomodoro. Famous for their authentic Italian Pizza the restaurant did not disappoint!
Finally we each enjoyed a beauty treat, ours was a face mapping session from skincare brand Dermalogica. We loved the thorough and prescriptive advice we were given to tackle our problem areas and make the most of our good bits! To top all of this off, we each left with a fabulous goodie bag full of gorgeous treats to try at home and a mental note of some key pieces to pick up for next season.
Thank you Selfridges!
