I love my bi-annual trips to London to see all that is happening in the world of Boden. It’s always colourful and always top of my new season wish list. As you know I’m a huge Boden fan, and so I thought I’d share a few photographs from the recent press day.
As usual this creature of habit met her two Boden buddies – Kat and Rosie – for a day of fashion, tea, cake and adventure. You may recall our last trip to the SS15 press day which was followed by afternoon tea at The Berkeley. This season we went for a Lebanese lunch, but more of that to follow.
The Boden AW15 collection was broken up into themes, and each was displayed in a shop. Yes Boden had built an entire high street to showcase their new collection, nothing like doing things by halves! AW15 is a new chapter for Boden called New British, and as part of this they’ve launched a standout collection called Boden Icons made up of limited-edition pieces in luxury fabrics. The collection was exciting, and I admire a brand who boldly move forward yet manage to retain what I love about them.
THE PARLOUR AT FORTNUM & MASON
Following the press day, and spicy chicken wraps at Comptoir Libanais, we wandered along Bond Street to The Parlour at Fortnum & Mason. Where we were joined by Sara and Xanthe. The Parlour was wonderfully sweet and totally indulgent, and I can thoroughly recommend a visit. What a joy to share cake and ice cream with so many inspiring and creative ladies. I’m already counting down the days until we can do it all again!
