Shopping on the high street has just got a whole lot more interesting. Once our go-to store for lingerie, cashmere basics and other of-the-moment fashion finds, Marks & Spencer are now offering a whole host of other big name brands – think Hobbs, Jaeger, Phase Eight and much more. This brand new ‘Brand’ section is turning them into a virtual one-stop shop for all your sartorial needs….
If, like us, you’re the type of person to click into a shop with the intention of a single purchase, and check out with a cart-load, M&S’s new brand section is guaranteed to lead you into temptation. It’s now home to a slew of brands, including names which we already know and love, meaning we can shop for all occasions and eventualities in one place.
If you’re looking for a stylish dress to wear to a summer wedding, or another formal frock-worthy occasion, Hobbs, Phase Eight and Finery London have styles a-plenty. For boardroom to bar -appropriate workwear, look no further than Jaeger’s sleek tailoring and cutting-edge accessories. And for off-duty cool, the likes of Seasalt Cornwall and White Stuff have waterproofs and casual separates, too. Of course this all positions itself seamlessly beside Marks & Spencers’ own collection – meaning style and convenience have never been more aligned.
While we edge our way back into the real world, sharpening your elbows or flexing your index finger for a shopping marathon might seem a step too far. Thankfully, instead of hot-footing around the city, and trawling a vast number of websites, you can literally shop everything you could possibly wish for in one place. Marks and Spencer can now service all your fashion and functional needs.
Here is everything we’re loving from the ‘Brand’ section at Marks & Spencer right now.
