Warehouse Christmas Collection: Sneak Peek!

 


Tis the season for Christmas previews - we've already had a sneak peek at what's headed our way from Oasis, and today we're talking Warehouse. Where other seasonal collections are all about the bling, Warehouse has focused instead on simple, elegant silhouettes and a muted, neutral colour palette.

We can't get away from Gatsby -and really, why would we want to?! - and here, it's referenced by lots of delicate chiffon layers, pleats and dropped waistlines.  But this is all brought up to date with unexpected touches - like studded shoulders, contrasting details and cool accessorising, like teaming a heavy black belt with a floaty nude dress.

My favourite piece is the nude pleated dress above, around the €90 mark, but there are some really stand-out separates that also caught my eye - like the brocade blazer (€90) and shorts (€60) or that fabulous leather jacket, which at €315 is by far the priciest piece in the collection.

Bling's not entirely absent - we'll be seeing some gorgeous jewellery that's well priced at around €20 - €25 per piece. I've got my eye on their diamante necklaces and I want a statement iPad holder, too - these will also be about €25. I have a soft spot for Warehouse bags and I think this shopper, €55, would look rather good on my arm.

But what do you think, is anything catching your eye?  And if you're a Warehouse fan, do check back later!
