A peek at Boden AW15, top picks for summer 2015 and GIVEAWAY!


A few weeks back, I was in our fair capital for a few events, one of which was the Boden AW15 press day. What a treat!

The Boden Autumn/Winter collection is really quite special. With heritage running through it - from the Celia Birtwell-inspired print dress to the red London bus jumper - the AW15 range is all about New British. Contemporary shapes and reinvented classics. Modern art-inspired prints and a sophisticated palette. Unexpected details (of course) and creative combinations.

And the thing I loved most of all? A bright red wool cape. That one's going in my basket the second it goes on sale. True fairy tale stuff.


But seeing as it's (supposedly) summer, here are my top picks from this season.

I adore this blue cat-eye sunnies and these polka dot plimsolls - don't they just say summer? That geometric tote would make the perfect beach bag, and I'm more than a bit in love with the sweet print of that swimsuit - close up it looks a little like ice lollies. And throwing on a towelling tunic is all that's required when a la plage.

Selina Sunglasses / Slip-on Trainer / Hexagon Canvas Tote / Sorrento Swimsuit / Towelling Tunic Dress


One of the things I think Boden does particularly well (and my all-time favourite wardrobe staple) is the dress. Here are nine gorgeous examples of print, pattern and cut. Which would you choose?









And no outfit is complete without shoes, is it? Here are seven pairs that caught my eye.



Seven Boden shoes and sandals, clockwise from top left:

While at the press day, there was a bright yellow telephone box stuffed full of books from Penguin. We were invited to take one away, and I chose Rachel Khoo's Kitchen Notebook - packed with incredible recipes all beautifully photographed by David Loftus - which I'm including in a rather lovely giveaway to you, my dears.

WIN: A £100 Boden gift voucher, Rachel Khoo's Kitchen Notebook, and a Boden AW15 press day tote bag!
