With Bristol Fashion Week AW15 kicking off in traditional style here in Brizzle, we headed to The Mall at Cribbs Causeway last week for a little flavour of what’s in store! We spent a jolly ol’ evening with our fellow local bloggers in Accessorize who kindly let us indulge in a lot of of fashion/wedding chat whilst drinking all their wine, eating all their cake and fawning over their novelty bags. Seriously, so many novelty bags.
When they managed to drag us away from the cake, the lovely manager talked us through the new collections as well as giving us an insight into what is going to be big over the next season. One thing is for sure, Accessorize have embraced a rather luxurious vibe, with an opulent colour pallet of gold and berry tones creating a bit of glamour in everything from ponchos to pom poms! We are seriously all about a pom pom! The festive season is also sneaking in with lots of sparkly accessories appearing on the shelves! We love all that glitters so some real restraint had to be used but we will no doubt be back for a cheeky Christmas clutch come December! It was also no surprise to learn that the 70s are still big news this Autumn and tassel lovers will be pleased to know that they are well catered for with lots of Moroccan influences appearing too!
But of course for us it was alllll about the novelty bags! Ever since that camera bag Accessorize have just been nailing the novelty! How adorable is that robot bag? NEED. Perhaps more sensibly, we also became rather smitten with a rather smashing boxy red satchel and a pink fedora which we are expertly (stop laughing) modelling for you below.
Bristol Fashion Week runs from Wednesday 30th – Sunday 4th of October with tickets starting at £8.95. With 17 catwalks to choose from, it’s always an excellent time with plenty of energy on the catwalk (no poker faces here!).
See you there!
