M&S Autumn/Winter 13 collection...

Marks & Spencer, M&S, British leading ladies, AW13

M&S is a quintessential British brand. From great food to clothing, it has been at the heart of family life for generations.

Their most recent campaign is a nod to both talented and inspirational British leading ladies. Shot by Annie Leibowitz (one of my favourite photographers as it happens), this campaign features the likes of Dame Helen Mirren, Ellie Goulding (one of my ultimate style icons as well as one of my favourite musicians), Katie Piper and Grace Coddington to name a few. In the campaign, the ladies are wearing some of their favourite pieces from Per Una, Autograph, M&S collection and the Limited Edition collection.

Recently, I was invited to attend a launch for their A/W 13 collection in Aberdeen. This was not only a chance to see the new collections but also to see part of M&S' refocus on clothing.

After officially launching the collection with a ribbon cutting ceremony,shoppers in-store were treated to style sessions highlighting the latest trends which provided much inspiration. In addition to the style sessions, shoppers also had personal shoppers to tailor their every need.

What strikes me most about the A/W 13 collection is how beautiful the pieces are. I am going to put my hands up and admit that I would have never thought about going into M&S previously for clothing. However, after being shown around store and being shown key pieces for A/W 13, I must say my view has very much changed. I fell in love with so many pieces when I was there and to be honest, I think I will be picking some up fairly soon.

Have you popped into M&S to view the A/W 13 collection?
