McQ Autumn / Winter 2009

The lovely Alistair from McQ invited me to attend their most recent press day for the McQ Autumn Winter 2009 collection and boy was I impressed. It certainly shows how forward thinking a brand is when they invite bloggers to check out their brand new collections, with blogs being able to get information quickly and effectively to a great number of fashion fans.

I was so impressed with the collection, bearing in mind that this is McQ's younger and more accessible (ie affordable) collection it is absolutely perfect for me. In a few words I would describe this collection as 'very La Roux' and can honestly say I adore every single part of it. Here are some of my crap pictures I took of the clothes on display.




Here are some looks from the lookbook, starting with my very favourite look, the blazer and dress are just perfect together, super smart work attire for the fashionista











Each person attending the press day was given a McQ canvas tote featuring an Autumn Winter 09 lookbook and a CD especially created for the collection by Unkle.

I will certainly be buying a good few pieces from this collection as soon as it hits Net-A-Porter, thanks Alistair!

Ahhh lucky you, I agree labels have certainly cottoned on to the power of the blogger. The collection looks great, love that asymmetric blazer, and bodycon patterned dress.
