River Island A/W 14 Press Day

First things first: Allow me to set the scene. 
It's a gloriously sunny day in April, I'm wearing tropical flower print, and there's that buzz in the air that suggests perhaps summer might be on it's way into England. And I'm off to the River Island Autumn/Winter press day.

The absolute last thing I expected upon arrival was to leave craving the sort of weather in which I can adorn myself in crazy faux furs, camel overcoats and snakeskin Chelsea boot heels. Yet this is exactly the way I felt after this preview. We were treated to custom made smoothies and the most gorgeous lunch whilst perusing the collection, and even had the opportunity to customise our own furry pom pom bag charms!

One thing in particular I am beyond excited about for the next season from River Island is the faux fur - to date I haven't seen faux fur so soft and of such high quality on the high street. If you are after a statement piece for the colder months, I recommend investing in one of these; Fendi-esque bags, scarves or coats in bright colours which will no doubt perk up any dull day.

Expect 90s/Rachel from friends long pleather coats, lots of brown and black combined, and even a few 70s shapes thrown into the bunch (yay!). Ice cream pastels are moving aside in favour of dusty baby blues and muted mink hues, whilst summer bright orange is here to stay.

The most incredible faux fur oversized scarf!!
