A Touch of Class: Marks & Spencer Autograph Collection Top Picks

Marks & Spencer (M&S) British retailer has some gorgeous collections for Fall/Winter 2010. The beauty and class of the Portfolio and Autograph Collections are what prompted me to write this post.

A Touch of History

M and S has always run newspaper and/or magazine ads since the early 1950s, but the introduction of some famous stars such as Twiggy and David Jason in various TV ads has helped raise the company’s profile. Twiggy first appeared in 1967, returning later in 1995 and 2005.

Marks & Spencer also has a Twiggy collection up on their site featuring Twiggy outfits from their Christmas TV Advert. But it’s their lingerie I love best, here are a few of my top picks!

Autograph Firm Control Sheer Panel Body with Silk

Look slimmer in seconds! This firm control body gently shapes your figure all over for a smoother, sleeker silhouette. Also available in Black, but the Rose is stunning! Just perfect for those with a paler complexion. Read more about this body shaper.

Autograph Broderie Embroidered Non-Padded Bra & Brazilian Knickers

Those embroidered bits are so art deco! I love the fan motif. This set is sophisticated and glamorous in a modern way. Read more about this stunning set.

Autograph Firm Control Diamond Mesh & Lace DD-G Body

This reminds me of Lady Gaga’s style. Of course it also comes in other cup sizes. I’m going to call it The Lady Gaga body shaper and I predict it’ll stick (are you reading this M&S!?).

Autograph Overlaid Lace Waspie

A great waspie for those who want the appearance of an enviable hourglass figure, this waspie waist cincher shapes your waist and tummy. Perfect for giving a feminine and controlled shape under dresses. Beautiful and obviously vintage inspired lingerie exclusive to Marks & Spencer.

Autograph Vintage Padded Suspender Camisole with Silk

Marks & Spencer Luxurious Vintage Inspired Dressing Gown

Modern and sophisticated, this embroidered dressing gown is part of the exclusive Marks & Spencer Autograph collection. It’s beautifully designed and made from a soft pure silk for a luxurious look and feel. The detail is lost in this little photo, but if you go to the site to view more pictures, you can zoom in on the amazing embroidery detail (flowers, birds, very vintage!) on the back, front and sleeves. Truly amazing to behold. This  Autograph Pure Silk Floral Embroidered Dressing Gown is an ONLINE EXCLUSIVE which means you’ll only find it on the website, not in M&S stores!
