MandCo SS17 Press Event


A sneak preview of MandCo's Spring Summer collection here.....

actually viewed this collection before Christmas! I kept it under lock and key because It was that good I wanted it to stay fresh in my reader's minds. It was such a great event, and I find that when I post about these events too early, the moment is gone. There have been many a time that I've chosen my favourite items and earmarked them for future updates to the wardrobe. Next thing you know, that item has flown out and no longer available. Get my point? 
Some of these items are trickling their way into MandCo already, so if you see something you like, keep your eye on the website.


On arrival, a burst of colour was how I can describe the greeting. I was like a little girl in a sweet shop! The PR team were lovely and were so welcoming. 


There's a rumour that one of the new on trend colours this year for Spring Summer is this lovely fiery Orange. Mixed in with the Blue's I think the colours go well together. 


Mint Green, Navy and White. Stripes and Floral. All of this will fit into items that I already have. I was really keen on the Coat in the middle of the photo. It was gorgeous.


The floral dress on the right was beautiful. Tiny pleats halfway through the dress really made it a showstopper.


Blues will always win my vote. I like this style of dress, so forgiving on the figure! Throw on a pair of heels and your good to go! It's already available here


Not forgetting the baby blues. How cool will this look with jeans or shorts


Feminine florals and blush pink hue's The dress is the middle is available now here

Not forgetting the beachwear! Although the long skirt wold look good anywhere with a T-shirt or blouse


Lace is still playing a huge trend. Who doesn't like it?



Moving on to accessories now.But before that, I want to show you the pampering I got while I was there! A lovely manicure, copious amounts of tea and a lunch bar with a lot of choice.







Didn't she do a good job? I loved the colour. What a perfect match!


Moving onto accessories. A lot of boldness going on here, something I'm aiming to play with more. Being a shortie, I've always stuck to dainty small items to finish off an outfit. But now I'm being a bit braver of late. I want to try more! Accessories are definitely something to work on.   






I thought the bags were perfect, love the colours, especially the one to the left


Love the Silver Circles necklace. A bargain price too! here


How bold are these items? I really like the Silver Cuff. Which accessories would you choose out of what's listed above? Let me know what's caught your eye!

Homewear is also available at MandCo. Summer fresh colours here, all to brighten the home. (I always change my cushion covers to match the seasons!)




How cute are these plates? Perfect for the kids!


The Strawberry one's for me of course!



So. That's it! I hope something caught your eye. I thought the whole collection was fabulous and I cold have scooped it all up in a minute and took it home with me. A wish list as long as my arm awaits!
XO Laurie

  7. There are so many items that caught my eye in this collection! The yellow soft furnishings would fit perfectly in our lounge. The silver circle necklace is lovely. And the mint green and monochrome rail looked great! I do think MandCo stock some lovely stuff and I'll definitely be popping by to take a look as their new collection hits the shops #PoCoLo

  28. Laurie, this looks like an absolutely fantastic day. All these fabrics and textures and colours, I would have went nuts. That bright orange/red is one of my favorite colors, and I love it psired up with blue. There are so many items here I would love to have, the bright orange leather purse with the pattern cut outs, the black and white slides, and that circle necklace would be my first picks. But so many other things that I would love to have. What a great collection.
