High Street Preview: Marks and Spencer womenswear spring 13
Marks and Spencer continues to push a more fashion-forward edge for spring 13, with a vibrant collection comprised of print and monochrome elements. Catwalk trends feature throughout, with hero pieces including wearable sheer lace blouses and skirts and printed suits. Some question remains as to the direction of the sub-brands, as the same trends run throughout Autograph, Limited Collection, M&S Woman et al which may make for a slightly more confused message once the pieces hit the shops and are divided back into their separate collections (the preview displayed pieces as trend collections rather than by sub-brand). However, on the whole Marks and Spencer seems to be moving forward in terms of hitting a fashionable note which will still suit its core customers.
