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…
