Last month, I was invited to the SS15 fashion and beauty press show by Debenhams. The venue for the show this season moved to Glasgow's Gallery of Modern Art. Previously, shows have been staged in Glasgow's Blythswood Square Hotel (my SS14 review here and AW14 here), so it made a lovely change to see the items in their new temporary home; under the breathtaking architecture that is the Gallery of Modern Art. Another difference, albeit personally, this season it was not the beauty section, but the fashion that captivated me. Brights and prints stood out and made a stark contrast against the rainy dreich weather that was awaiting us outside. Inside, it was more like being on a sandy beach surrounded by palm trees and, er, rather attractive male models strutting down the catwalk in nothing but speedos..
But, ahem, enough of the pleasing scenery, on to the clothes!

The accessories this season really shone! From novelty fruit clutch bags to loud prints splashed across trousers, something tells me SS15 is all about making a statement. With that in mind, I've selected some of my favourite statement (and also simply lovely) pieces that I hope will transport me to the Med.. if only in my daydreams, eh?
PS - bonus points if you spotted me in The Sun chatting away to Lynsay on the front row.. eek!
Over to you - what will you be investing in for SS15?
