Decent product, shame about the uninspiring and tired shopfit.
Debenhams is a little hit or miss when it comes to trends. While Red Herring features parkas and checked swing coats, it also has leaf-print white cotton dresses which are too summery for autumn. Rocha by John Rocha plumps for houndstooth on jackets and waterfall ruffles on grey checked dresses, as well as the odd sequined blouse. Butterfly by Matthew Williamson deals with sequined dresses, while Star by Julien Macdonald covers the colour block panelling trend.
There is little to inspire the shopper here, with shopfits telling their stories with no imagination, such as a black wall backdrop for J by Jasper Conran eveningwear and a white wall for daywear. The antique-effect boudoir wardrobe in the Star by Julien Macdonald area has been here for seasons now. This looks needs updating.
A leather jacket with studded lapels and collar is good value at £120. A Butterfly sequin dress is the priciest seen in Glasgow at £285, although a sequined and beaded-shoulder purple knit in the same range is a more reasonable £40. Mantaray covers casualwear well, with combats for £30 and £38 jeans.
