Tap into this season's Gothic romance trend with key pieces from Tu at Sainsbury's
If, like us, you’ve been drooling over the rich, medieval-inspired ensembles seen at Chanel and Thakoon Autumn Winter 15 shows, you’ll be pleased to hear about our latest high-street discovery.
Inspired by sleeping beauties and heroic knights, the Midnight collection from Tu at Sainsbury’s mixes rich hues, whimsical motifs and ornate detailing to dramatic effect.
Expect to find chainmail-inspired prints, heavily embellished collars and shimmering metallic denim jeans that promise to give your new-season wardrobe a seriously stylish update. Key fabrics? It’s all about tapping into velvet, lace and jacquard textures to give a nod to the historical feel layer up and complete the look with Sleeping Beauty-inspired berry lips.
‘Strong yet feminine, the clothes tap into the Medieval trend seen on all the runways this season. They give casual dressing a hint of splendour.’ says Lucia Debieux, Marie Claire’s fashion editor.
The new Tu range is available from 17 November online and at selected Sainsbury’s stores. For more info, visit http://tuclothing.sainsburys.co.uk.
