To celebrate their 30th anniversary Next took over the Portico Rooms at Somerset House to showcase their AW12 collection, their anniversary capsule collection and to generally show the gathered bloggers and associated press as great time. Before I get onto the actual clothes, accessories and home wear I want to thank the team at Next for the delicious cocktails, macaroons and gold leaf brownies we were all served!Also, kudos for having an Essie nail bar; best nail polish brand ever!
I was pretty impressed with some of their 30th anniversary collection. There was a poncho with a fur trim I was quite enamoured by, and these jeans are pretty rad, even though I don't 'do' prints!
I think the stand out from this collection have to be the amazing and classic accessories, especially the many pairs of fantastic shoes and boots that were on display making us almost wish that it was not Summer sandal weather outside!
An item I'm sure many of us wanted right there on the spot because they would be perfect for all seasons are these glitter embellished Cuban ankle boots. I have seen so many DIY's around the web dedicated to decorating boots like this, and now you will be able to get them if you're not a partially crafty soul too, and as this is Next for a very reasonable price I'll bet to boot (excuse the pun!)
Something else from the shoe collection that constitutes a real steal ar these Miu Miu style glitter heels I was getting excited about; perfect if you just can't quite afford the real thing!
What out of these pictures are you most excited about from Next this Autumn? Also, in honour of Next's 30th anniversary, what is your first memory of a Next purchase? I think mine is a super comfortable taupe suede brightly embellishes pair of sandals when I was a kid!
