Marks & Spencer also took the opportunity to unveil its new menswear and womenswear collections for the Autumn/Winter season, with a renewed focus on exceptional quality and confident style.  Marks & Spencer’s standard setting ethics continue to inspire innovation and design whilst championing the heritage and core values of Marks & Spencer in perfectly edited collections.

The mood for the new womenswear season is one of confident femininity, celebrating the female form in flattering fit and design whilst bringing several strong trend directions into play.  From the elegant, retro-inspired glamour of Femme Fatale to the softly androgynous, minimal tailoring of Modern Elegance the season ahead promises a fresh feel to winter dressing.

Print and pattern take a considered direction in Wild Opulence using simple silhouettes, tonal animal prints and more refined geometrics to set a sophisticated print tone.  In contrast, exquisite fabrics make the strongest style statement with an emphasis on opulent brocades, embellishment and luxe leather in Dark Drama, or the warm, brushed finish of checks, plaids and tactile knits in London Calling. 

 

Marks & Spencer also has some sub brands some of which has been revamped and repositioned:

 

This autumn M&S will re-launch its core clothing range with the introduction of M&S Collection, to replace M&S Woman. M&S Collection will offer a considered edit of stylish wardrobe essentials with a renewed focus on great quality, everyday clothing. M&S Collection offers customers the very best choice in confident, stylish clothing in an effortless, easy-to-wear edit

 

Limited Collection be relaunched as Limited Edition and will form part of M&S Collection encompassing the same core values but with a focus on more trend-led design and the latest wearable, current fashions. The range will be refreshed on a weekly basis to regularly bring customers the latest interpretations of the key season’s trends.

 

M&S’s Classic range will retain its brand identity but become part of M&S Collection. Classic focuses on elegant comfort and style with a more focussed understanding of today’s older woman and her style needs.

 

Autograph emulates affordable designer quality with exquisite, understated elegance and uses more luxurious fabrics and design details than the core collection. M&S has upgraded 75% of the fabrics used in Autograph including noble natural yarns such as wool, cashmere and silk.

 

per una is fun and feminine with touches of glamour. per una still exudes colour, print and embellishment, however the new range features more considered use of colour and refined detailing to reflect the modern per una customer.

 

Indigo – offers authentic fashionability to M&S’s denim and casualwear offer. All Indigo layering t-shirts and basic jeans are made from responsibly sourced BCI cotton which uses less water and pesticides.
