Marks & Spencer have just announced the launch of ‘Brands at M&S’, which – as the name suggests – is the addition of a handful of specially curated brands which will be available to shop via their website.
It means that whilst you’re snapping up goodies from the standard Marks & Spencer range (and their Per Una and Autograph collections), you’ll also be able to add some other household names to your digital shopping basket, such as Hobbs, Joules, Y.A.S. and Sloggi.
The first wave of guest brands will be dropping online from March through to May, and will join the likes of Nobody’s Child and Finery which arrived on the M&S website earlier this year.
Essentially, it’s Marks & Spencer following in the footsteps of competitor brand Next (who already stock plenty of additional brands such as F&F and UGG), and even ASOS.
Here’s your full list of womenswear brands headed to the Marks & Spencer website this spring…
Finery – Glorious prints and floaty, feminine shapes make this brand one of our faves for dresses. They’re perfect for weddings and special occasions and stand the test of time in your wardrobe thanks to their classic styles. Dresses from around £40/£50.
Y.A.S. – This Danish brand has been one of my fave to hunt out on ASOS for years. Super cool bright prints and shapes, and lots of midi dresses and jumpsuits. Prices from around £50 for a gorgeous want-to-wear-again-and-again dress.
Selected Femme – A slight jump up in price (dresses tend to tip into the three-figure mark) but you’re paying for premium quality and of course, sustainability. Think classic pieces with a cool, fashion edge. And yes, there’s plenty of leopard print in their current collection.
Sosander – The creation of two women who used to work in the fashion magazine industry, Sosander is a fairly new brand with a focus on creating designs for women who want sleeves and longer hemlines. Um, that’ll be us then. Expect everyday wardrobe staples from about £40 upwards.
Hobbs – An iconic British brand for classic pieces and elegant style with timeless shapes and cuts. Dresses start at just over £100 and accessories command a similar price.
Phase Eight – The brand has long been synonymous with floaty, feminine dresses and classic suit-everyone styles, but there’s always a few secret gems hidden in each collection that make us go HELLO. This season? There’s a fantastic white denim wide-leg jumpsuit that’s just heaven.
White Stuff – For fun prints and practical styles that can be worn out and about, day in and day out, White Stuff is your brand. Everything is super-laid back and designed to be worn over and over again – making them work exceptionally hard in your wardrobe.
Seasalt Cornwall – Another great brand for simple designs that are incredibly versatile and easy to wear every single day. Expect striped tops, practical rain jackets and breathable fabrics.
Joules – Inspired by the British countryside, everything from this iconic brand has a wearable relaxed vibe. There’s plenty of prints include detailed florals and go-with-everything stripes and prices start at around £20 for a t-shirt.
Sloggi – For minimal underwear with ultimate comfort, there’s really only one brand and that’s Sloggi. Everything comes in neutral shades and is perfect for everyday wear.
Triumph – For classic underwear styles that are well-made, comfortable and supportive and yet look pretty decent too, there’s Triumph. A great alternative to M&S’s notoriously good lingerie range.
