It’s been five years since model Twiggy (whose real name is Lesley Hornby) launched her very first collection with M&S. Then, at 62-years-old, the former fashion icon with a pixie cut burst onto the high-street with a chic and stylish collection of clothes that not only fit and flattered a wide age-range of women, but gave us the fashion forward trend-led wardrobe updates that we so needed.
Over the last five years, the Twiggy M&S collections have evolved, yet continue to be a desirable range of timeless essentials each season.
For this autumn, 67-year-old Twiggy is launching a brand new, 21-piece collection with M&S featuring a selection of figure flattering hero pieces and signature separates perfect for the changing season.
Renowned for her love of the trouser suit, Twiggy has also been sure to include her own chic two piece suit in classic navy – perfect for work wear winter dressing that will take you from day to night – just add heels!
Talking about her brand new Twiggy M&S collection the model and fashion icon said: “I love designing for Autumn, there are so many different ways to style and interpret hero pieces…I hope you love my new collection as much as I do.”

Twiggy shares her style tips for those who wouldn’t usually opt for such a bold or bright colour: “Red is a statement colour that I adore and is so on trend this season, but if you are less confident in colour, complement with navy and grey for a sophisticated look.”
The easy to wear, and oh-so stylish red dress is set to be a sell out this season, so get yours before they go. A spokesperson from M&S says:
“It’s all about colour for us at the moment and customers are loving our summer brights, with red being the big winner this season which will continue into Autumn. We predict Twiggys red dress will be a big seller as it’s such a versatile piece that will effortlessly transition between the Summer and Autumn season. This is a dress for all occasions and a great wardrobe addition.”
