Event: La Redoute SS15 Press Day
Last week I went to the La Redoute SS15 Press Day in Paris to do some filming for the UK branch. This season Jeanne Damas is our cover model and she has also designed a small capsule collection for us. Jeanne herself was such a lovely person, with a really infectious laugh. Her collection is ultra feminine with 70’s inspiration – her favourite piece from the collection was the wrap dress. She said that she found it hard to find the perfect one, so she created it! I loved the red floral print wrap dress, it’s the perfect summer dress.
This season there are 4 main designer collections Jeanne Damas, Sezane, Polder and Bridget Bardot. I was actually wearing a t-shirt from the current Sezane collection, I love a slogan t-shirt. This one says ‘Les Garcons et Les Filles.’ I’m going to picking up the blue skirt they had teamed up with it on the mannequin, all I’ll need to add is a pair of sandals.
The footwear was really strong too, I’ve got my eye on quite a few pairs. I really liked the jewelled slip ons from Soft Grey. They’ll look great with a pair of baggy jeans and a basic t-shirt in the summer. I’ll be picking up lots of pieces with the help of my staff discount for the new season. It’s actually making me excited for Spring/Summer, just have to get through that pesky winter first…
