M&S debuts Patricia Field collection in New York

Patricia Field, the celebrity stylist best known for her work on the Sex and the City series, showed her exclusive autumn capsule collection for Marks & Spencer on the catwalk in New York Fashion Week this weekend.

Patricia Field's range for M&S, reported to have cost the retailer £5 million, features clothing, footwear and accessories which will go on sale in selected M&S stores from October 16.

The range includes pieces based on items worn by the stars of the Sex and the City movie which was released in cinemas earlier this year. Key pieces are a 1950s-style puffball polka dot dresses which will retail for £75, a black sequined catsuit at £99, a black and white striped military jacket at £75 and a blue lurex mini-dress for £60.

Some 40 dresses feature in the collection.

On signing the deal with Patricia Field in May this year M&S executive director of clothing Kate Bostock said: "We are thrilled to have pulled off this deal with Patricia Field – as soon as we heard about the collection I knew we had to have it! We were determined to have exclusivity on it not only in the UK but also in our international markets, as it is such an amazing collection and a big 'first' for us."

Bostock added: continued: "For the first time ever, women all over the world will have a chance to own for themselves one, or more, of the sexy, glamorous and individual styles of Patricia Field. This year is the perfect time for this unique opportunity with the Sex and the City movie hitting screens, to showcase a range specially designed by the woman who created such amazing looks in so many films and TV series."

  • M&S is getting nowhere with the overpriced and poor-fitting garments and shoes.
    New ladies shirts oh offer (btw - they fit only skinny customers), made of 65% polyester and 35% cotton, are offered at £12.50 and the real cost to buy them in China is £1.50 - they should be at £6.99 and they will sell.
    Customers just keep walking around and nobody is buying. The only time when the tills are busy is at the time of sales. The only way to sell is to keep sales going all the time.
    Now, shoe collection in the shops looks like they left it to stylists from Vietnam and China to 'express themselves'. Shoes are simply ugly, taste is poor, the make is very rough and they fit poorly.

  • IF indeed these shirts are being purchased at £1.50/unit in china, please advise your workings on the packaging, shipping, clearance, duty, warehousing, transport, suppliers margin, and store running and staffing costs that need to be factored in on each individual unit to actually make some semblance of a profit ??
