On Wednesday night I was lucky enough to get tickets for the Elle Insider x Jack Wills Spring Lates up close and personal evening with their new creative director, Richard Nicholl. The evening was an opportunity to showcase their spring collection, as well as offering discounts, nibbles and an endless supply of cocktails/mocktails for guests lucky enough to get tickets through Elle Magazine.
The event took place at the Jack Wills store by Leicester square, complete with chandeliers, flowers and some best of British memorabilia which showcased the range beautifully. There were also monogrammers (if that’s even a word) on hand to personalise your purchases while you waited.
After collecting a couple of metal lettered pin badges to represent your initials, next stop was to view the collection, as well as part with some money before gathering for a question and answer session by Richard Nicholl and Elle Magazine.
Finally, I can honestly say the range is amazing. There were some comments that a couple of the pieces could be easily confused with a basic from Topshop for half the price; however, there were statement items which screamed quality, design and style. These for me were the true winners. My favourite was a navy dogtooth mac which I completely fell in love with and would have parted with my money, if it weren’t for the £120 price tag… A girl can dream!!
The range can now be shopped Online at www.jackwills.com so get browsing quick!
