Hello!

Autumn is truly upon us! The clocks have gone back and the we are now on the home straight to the festive season…it is DEFINITELY time to revamp the wardrobe!

Thanks for reading the preliminary post in this mini series,  which highlighted the #brownbeauty featured in the AW14 international campaigns.  

I will now turn my attention to the British brands!

As you all know,  I am not only a champion for all things #brownbeauty but for all things creatively British as well!  #teamUK has certainly not let me down – check out a selection of the AW14 campaigns below…and make that shopping list!

The quintessentially colourful British brand has selected supermodel Jourdan Dunn to front its winter campaign.

Oliver Bonas
At 25, Olly Tress opened his first branch of Oliver Bonas on London’s Fulham Road. There are now 42 stores nationwide. The chain is a haven for those with a keen eye for design – packed with colourful, uplifting home accessories, as well as fashion, jewellery and beauty treats.

I was strolling through Waterloo station and I saw a poster featuring the beautiful model below.

The model is Leanne Pollock I love her outfits and her mass of curls!

Check out the AW14 campaign video below, which was directed by Burberry’s CEO and Creative Director Christopher Bailey. Swoon over the amazing fashion – the boys are dapper and the girls are gorgeous!

Topshop

If your budget doesn’t quite stretch to a Burberry trench, pick up a replica from high street fashion mecca Topshop.
Chic macs and chunky knits will keep you warm and snug in the cold.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the name of this model or the photographer of the campaign – if you know, or if this is you, please let me know!

Westfield

image Yes, this department store group is Australian, but with a global presence, its campaigns are produced locally. I am pleased to see that the the company’s imagery has become more diverse of late, as I used to find it very ‘monotone’ and not very reflective of the nation – especially the capital.

Does this look like your London?   Nope...mine neither!

Nope…mine neither!

The AW14 campaign was created by media agency Portas and the content is based based on Westfield’s blog called Pulse. The campaign aims to go beyond trends for the season by drilling down into specific topics such as, “heels v flats”, “1000 to 1 coats” and “the pursuit of perfection” and create talking points around these themes.

Below is the campaign video foe #theperfectcoat talking point.

Marks and Spencer

This model below has been featured in store and on Marks and Spencers’ social media channels.

    Can you order online from these businesses ? There are 2 or 3 items I’d love to get my girlfriend for Christmas.
