It might have been pouring with rain last Thursday, but there was one thing that truly brightened my day: the Matalan AW’15 press day!

It’s probably no secret that autumn-winter is generally my favourite season when it comes to fashion, and the Matalan collection is an embodiment all I love about it. Filled with rich colours and textures, I almost can’t wait until it gets cold again.

This latest collection is based on the #MatalanModernFamilies idea: there is a line for everyone in the family, right down to the household decoration (I adore the owl candle holders!)

Their smart range is built on the key styles from previous seasons – monochrome, co-ordinating sets, stripes, houndstooth, and cigarette-pant legs – whilst their more casual range builds on the love of 70s we’re seeing everywhere – think pastels blended with rich autumnal tones, texture, bootleg cuts, gilets, and fur. They have indescribably beautiful knee an over-the-knee boots, plus build on their fantastic footwear with a mix of flats and heels in rich tones and monochrome, and ankle boots in Chanel-esque houndstooth and warming shearling lining.

Sounds good? Just wait until you see their sportswear (purple camo!) and their capsule ranges from Falmer Heritage and Fenn Wright Manson. Suede with cut-out details, detailed lace, more fur and texture upon texture. I’m particularly in love with the burnt orange coat from FWM!

Even the homeware reflects these delicious rich tones and textures – tartan throws, brass doorstops, burnt orange for the living room, blue-green and grey for the bedroom, and of course the ubiquitous theme of country animals – from stags and hares to owls, plus the tongue-in-cheek addition of naughty-looking French bulldogs!
