Following on from the great success of her first two collections, Next recently announced Emma’s third collection of clothing and nightwear. We think it might be the best yet...
Emma Willis has worked closely with the in-house designers at Next again to create over 30 beautiful, timeless pieces.
She said about the experience, “Working with Next is always so much fun and I feel like with each collection I become more confident and familiar with the design process. It’s so important to me that the pieces in my collection are items that I would actually wear and would want to buy myself. We’ve worked really hard this time around to include wardrobe staples for autumn in easy, comfortable and timeless styles. I think my favourite pieces from this latest collection are the blue satin suit, such a vibrant colour, and the monochrome herringbone coat – if you have a great staple coat, it can make any outfit!”
We agree that the blue satin suit is a knock-out look. We included it in our edit of our favourite five looks...
Fashion Director's top picks of Emma Willis for Next
1. The blue satin suit
Tailoring in neutral and tonal looks feel really modern
2. The roll neck and trousers
Soft, textured fabrics and paperbag-waisted trousers paired with fine roll necks create an effortless, feminine silhouette.
3. The classic crombie coat
Classic crombie style coats in both herringbone and camel are the ultimate winter wardrobe staples.
4. Smart satin
Satin suiting and pleated shirt dresses in rich, jewel tones along with the perfect black tux jumpsuit have you covered for those dressier occasions.
5. The chunky jumper
For those crisp October days the chunky, oversized knitwear in both muted and bold tones are the perfect grab-and-go pieces.
6. The perfect PJs
Nightwear for autumn is all about star prints in super soft fabrics. The collection includes short sets and full length, cami and classic button down pyjama styles.
