M&S Spring Summer 2010 Preview

M&S

Ok I knoooow, we’re not even mid-winter yet, we haven’t even begun to enjoy the brisk weather and warm coats, layering of scarves and cardies and the drinking of mulled wines – and I’m already talking about Summer?

Well it can’t be helped – I don’t much like it either, having to drink tall cool glasses of fizzy lime cocktails and eat brioche topped with creme frache and shredded crab. Ok well I liked it quite a lot – but it is slightly unnerving, however it is my job and someone’s got to do it!

Anyway, I don’t want to get too summery on you because i’m quite revelling in our current season but here are a few wonderful things to look forward to next year at M&S!

A lovely modern take on traditional rose print china, using big bold flowers and soft watercolour strokes…

Some great vintage accessories on display, lots of retro inspired styles of ceramics and lovely vintage style glass vases in yellows and greens, I love their striking silhouettes.

Surprisingly quite a lot of black in their Spring/Summer range, they’ve updated a lot of existing designs in striking black colourways. Love the black storage jars which usually come in lighter shades.

And finally, something that got us all very excited – a great new set of tableware including dining textiles from Zandra Rhodes! Isn’t it lovely? The tulip prints are just so striking and I love the way the leaves dance playfully around the rims and tops of each vessel. Well done M&S, a great collection as usual!

Stay tuned for my roundup of new products from The White Company, Jamie Oliver, and everyones favourite – Toast!
