London never fails to show just how pretty she is, especially when she recently took me to Duke Street Emporium for the Jigsaw AW15 press event. The grand building was the home of some beautiful high street pieces alongside artisan coffee which I promised myself I would have to return to, as it's a gorgeous thing not out of place in New York's Greenwich Village.
However heading downstairs into the event itself, I was greeted with a glass of champagne and their collection of women's, mens and even kids to peruse and showcase their new Autumn Winter collection.
You can see which autumnal trends are here to stay, with the rich greens and burgundys showcased through pencil skirts and silk blouses alongside chic camel outerwear. My favourite was a forest green pencil skirt which was so 50's glamour that I wanted to snatch it up and go dancing. And classic tartan prints and breton stripes were interwoven in the collection as well to keep up the heritage image. However I also fell in love with their classic lounge wear in a multitude of greys and patterns which I can just imagine cosying up with in winter, a glass of wine keeping me company. The cashmere jumpers were so soft that being cuddled by a cloud doesn't do it justice.
Of course, I couldn't ignore the entire rail of black lace dresses, could I? And their collection of buttery soft leather handbags and pony-skin loafers were my key investment pieces, alongside contrasting blue satchels for daytime casual. Even the men's collection caught my eye with retro pocket squares and suede suit jackets, easy to reminisce about the good old days of dapper men. It was pure class and elegance that I fell completely in love with.
And the little girls collection was full of polka dots and princess coats. Now I really hope the Royal Baby is a girl so she can be decked in all of the pretty dresses.
I couldn't help but be sucked into the luxury of Jigsaw's newest collection and I'll be coveting their cashmere jumpers and printed trousers this Winter. Until then, I'll keep hold of my personalised keyring that I came away from the event with whilst I peruse their lookbook.
