Gok Rocks - The AW12 Collection for TU Clothing

I was so excited to be sent the lookbook for Gok's new collection for TU at Sainsburys, last month. Since his last collection, which I found a bit too work-wear driven, I'd been tweeting Gok and his right-hand man Mark asking for more casual pieces in this next collection. And he's delivered with a great mix of very wearable day-time pieces as well as some amazing dresses & skirts.
So when I was invited to pick some pieces from the collection, the only dilemma was how many samples to request without being told to clear off! Clearly I didn't ask for too much as a lovely wrapped parcel arrived today containing all that I'd asked for..
The first item I was sent is this Shell Top in navy & ivory, priced at £22:
Next is this gorgeous peplum belted dress, priced at £45. Tried it on this evening and it's stunning on - so flattering. I'm going to wear it to a fashion show tomorrow night!
The boucle biker style jacket just seen in this photo is priced at £45. As it's a little longer than most of the boucle jackets out there at the moment, it's much easier to wear - especially if you're long in the body as I am.
Finally, I chose a pair of black skinny jeans that are worthy of the name Perfect Skinny Jeans - £28. Divine. 
Well done Gok - the quality and fit of what I've been sent has me already planning a trip to my local Sainsbury's to get the jeans in another colour and to check out this 'Must Have Trench'..
The whole range is available in larger Sainsburys supermarkets now. Perfect for slipping in with the mince and tomatoes :)

I'll put up some photos on the blog wearing what I was sent, in a couple of days. I just need to get the camera working again. Sometimes having a 4 year old Testino wannabe in the house is not a good thing...it's an expensive thing! See you tomorrow...

    1. Aw....I could always do some mail order for you if there's something you really like! Or you could do a bloggy trip up north with The Flaky Fashionista and Anne @ Heart & Soul. We could all meet up in Newry! x

    2. That sounds like such a nice plan. I am going home this weekend (not far from Derry) so I am going to drag Hubbie into Derry and hopefully Sainsbury's. I am not sure if they stock much of Gok's collection, but I am going to look.

  7. That sounds very interesting and loved the pieces you picked. Particularly interested in the perfect skinny jeans! So once I cross the border, where's the nearest Sainsburys that will stock this range?? :)

    1. Helen, the Sainsburys in Newry would have it in stock. Or you could come up to Sprucefield in Lisburn and I'll meet you there! Avx

  9. I like the look / sound of those, especially the trench coat. Must head to Sainsbury's to check them out. At this rate, I'll be clothed entirely by food retailers :-) xx

    1. I have no idea why my comment there converted the words t r e n c h coat to a link by the way?! Unintentional. How weird!
