Katie Loxton fans, it's that time of year again! We were lucky enough to be invited to attend the new Katie Loxton AW18 collection preview recently and there's so much we want to share with you all!
First of all, pouches. Katie Loxton's clutch bags are ultra versatile and a must for your wardrobe; they're the ideal size for keeping all your essentials in on your night out, to organise your handbag, or even for your travel documents - the possibilities are endless! With a constant selection of new sentiments and colours you can expand your collection to ensure there's always one to suit.
Well, this season is no different. Yes there's new colours and sentiments - hello new French-inspired sayings, just perfect for your weekend away to Paris - but Katie Loxton has also given her perfect pouches a brand new glistening finish and we love it! The soft - not horribly scratchy - glitter textured finish is the ultimate compliment to your Christmas party outfit. There's 12 new designs in glistening gold, silver, burgundy, navy, pink, ruby red and dreamy greys, with brand new mantras including 'Wonderful Mum', 'Friendship Forever' and our favourite for the party season, 'Happy Hour'.
Similarly, Katie has designed new purses and zip top card holders, all with a glistening glitter finish to match your new favourite clutch bag! There's no sentiment statement here to let the gorgeous glitter finish do the talking. The new Alexa Shimmer Purse is available in charcoal, silver, burgundy and blue, with even more colours available in the card wallets to ensure you can match your favourite perfect pouch.
Another party season favourite are the new, luxury, velveteen Valentina Clutches, available in beautiful berry, sapphire, taupe and blue, that can be worn open or folded down for versatile wear. A bit like marmite, we think you'll either love them, or not!
Lots of new handbags are set to hit the shelves in September, but let us introduce you now to the upcoming hero bag and Katie's personal favourite! This ultimate handheld and cross-body bucket bag is finished with statement golden hoop handles; Katie says "I adore this Suki Bucket Bag, small but seriously stylish it goes with every outfit!". Available in classic black, cool grey or burgundy for a splash of seasonal colour.
Some of your old favourites are back in new colour-ways too, like the best-selling Mini Chloe Bucket Bag launching in shimmering silver and the popular Avery Handbag coming in new classic black and winter taupe colours.
If you're looking for something completely new then look no further! Katie Loxton is expanding her repertoire and has designed three lovely eye masks to ensure sleeping beauty is always looking her best, even in slumberland! We think they're the perfect accessory to go with your weekend travel bag (speaking of which there's a new silver version launching, too), to catch a few zzz when travelling.
There's also brand new lunch bags, brand new hat, scarf and glove sets with pretty pearl details and all new festive fragranced candles!
Last season Katie launched her new Katie Loxton Baby range, including baby blankets, baby's first passport holder and matching luggage tag which have all been really popular with her youngest fans! This Autumn, Katie is bringing even more to her baby range - perhaps it has something to do with the fact that she's 5 months pregnant with her first child - and we can't contain our excitement! There's the most adorable knitted pom pom hats that are available in pale pink, baby blue and cool grey, new passport holders and luggage tags in pearlescent pink and blue and some sweet sentiment wall hangings which will look at home hung on any nursery wall.
You can take a look at the entire new Katie Loxton AW18 Collection online now, all 175 items, to give you plenty of time to decide on your favourites (although we've had months and we still want it all!). What are you most looking forward to? Let us know below!
