LONDON: Oooh weâ€™re all quite excited this side of the pond as Patricia Fieldâ€™s collection for Marks and Spencer hits the shops in a couple of weeks. Now M&S isnâ€™t really known for high fashion, itâ€™s more like “reliable” fashionâ€¦. Say if you needed something smart for work, or a sturdy bra and knicker set or something. So this is quite a departure for the companyâ€¦ but does it hit the right note?
As part of a $8m deal, the Sex and the City stylist will provide just over a dozen dresses.The designs will no doubt be a hit with fans of the show/film, but also the younger edgier buyers will probably customise the dresses to make them a bit more individual.
But there’s a huge problem with these “special collections”â€¦ e.g. Kate Moss for Topshop, or Stella MacCartney for H&M â€“ tones of other chicks will have the same outfit, and invariably theyâ€™ll be at least three of you in the same frock at a work party or something (especially leading up to Christmas). Not what you want really. So I tend to buy a couple of pieces then hold off wearing it for a couple of seasons. By which time the other buyers have lost theirs at the back of a cupboard somewhereâ€¦It’s only then that they can look really great.
