Next Pop-Up Shop!

Hello lovely readers! I've got something very exciting for you today... a Next Pop-Up Shop!

Next contacted me recently with this exciting proposal, and of course, I couldn't say no :). They're launching their A/W 2010 collection, and I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. It seems to encompass all of the top trends - remember me talking about how I'm looking forward to highstreet versions of the Prada 'Mad Men' style? Well, Next have delivered the goods: I'm definitely seeing a 60s influence in the coat and dress below.

I've chosen 4 of my favourite looks from their new collection, so... clockwise from top left:

1) I couldn't resist picking this one, simply for its amazing Burberry-esque aviator jacket - definitely a key wardrobe staple this winter. This version is faux-lamb skin, and looks lovely and warm. I also love how the chunky socks have been paired with the brown boots - I'll be trying this myself soon, although I don't know if I can pull it off!

2) This is my absolute favourite look - slightly preppy but without looking like you've just come out of the classroom. I like how the shorts and lapel details add a nice twist to this classic suit, whilst still keeping it appropriate as office wear. And the lace up shoes are yummy!

3) My favourite aspect of this outfit was the brown leather bag... does it remind you of a certain it-bag...? The coat is also beautiful - very 60s, with its peter-pan style collar and princess sleeves.

4) A lovely simple 60s style trapeze dress with a demure colour palette - perfect for strolls around Paris, as seen in the ad campaign - but also for nights out or posh meals :). The court shoes are pretty lovely too.

And now on to the exciting bit... the pop-up shop! It reminds me a bit of Gok Wan's capsule wardrobes... everything sort of matches everything else. If you like any of the items in these 4 outfits, click on the item on the grid and it should link you through to the Next website, where you can look at the items in more detail... I'm very excited by this modern technology!

I hope it all works properly!
Which is your favourite item?
