Again, since their awesome YouTube video (anyone seeing a theme lately of these sneak preview videos popping up everywhere?!), this Autumn/Winter collection has gotten Becky and I rather excited. Plus, can I just take a moment to stress the excitement at the thought of a babydoll up to a K cup!?
The new sets boast improved fit, practical colourways and an expansion of the incredibly popular ‘Smoothie’ bra, with a gorgeous yet understated diamond embossed overlay and a brand new name: ‘Starlet’.

The brand seem to have ‘grown up’ a lot for AW13, and whilst I’m sure many will agree that’s not necessarily a good thing (I’ve never seen so much black in a CK collection and I for one miss the lurid colours and frills of Showgirl sets of old), this season sees CK step it up a notch in their commercial viability. Lots of ‘old favourites’ have been disposed of and replaced with new an improved styles – the ‘Dreamcatcher’ apparently being the ‘new alternative’ to the old Emily and Princess bras, and the ‘Daisy Chain’ and ‘Rosie’ sets emulating the fuss-free, dependable fit of the Lottie.
