Debenhams welcomes Miss Laura Oakes!
Say a big HELLO to Debenhams latest homeware designer, Laura Oakes!
So a couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to the press preview for the latest /EDITION designer for Debenhams. The room was full of interior designer folks from the big magazines, so I was totally out of my comfort zone, but hey the new stuff looks COOL AS HELL!
Laura Oakes is a mix between the animal loving Abigail Ahern designer and Matthew Williamson‘s Indian summer tropical vibe! Placed between these two Laura Oakes’ vintage florals slots in perfectly! Her look is bold, eye catching, and modern with a huge vintage feel.
The collection launches online and in the main stores on the 13th March just before the high summer pieces drop in, so the bright colours will defo stand out. More importantly though, the range is priced WAY cheaper than you’d expect with an /EDITION designer, in fact prices start at just £10! You can find everything from candles and oversized cushions to print canvas’s to the ultimate vintage armchair!
My fave pieces are the 3-D butterfly effect frames which are £30 and I’m sure they’ll be the first to sell out!
I can’t wait to see the full collection in stores. But take a closer look at the best bits from the event!
To end the evening Laura invited all guests to make their own scrapbook using a range of different letters and images. Each person got stuck in and produced some really amazing designs. I kept mine quite basic as I quite frankly am not an artist but you could really read everyones personalities through their collages!
What do you think?
GRAB A SEAT in stores on the 13th March!
