This competition is now closed. Well done to winners Ecidnac, Natty, Steph and Lady J
Welcome to a sponsored post from Metalicus. Lana is going to tell you all about the new season at Metalicus with a little help from Metalicus head designer Vanessa Rochman and then I am going to do the 3D bit – watch and see. Lana writes:
“Hard to believe that winter is already on its way, I’m wondering how we got to March so quickly. I was still planning on buying a swimming costume that flatters me and all of a sudden I am looking at leggings, jumpers, scarves and jackets. And truth be known, I am a little bit excited. I love dressing for winter, not only because I feel like winter clothes hide so many more of my flaws but also because I love the feeling of being blanketed in gorgeous fabrics and oh Lord how I love to layer my clothes.
But it’s not just the warmth of the clothes and the sensation of the stretch fabrics in the new Metalicus range that gets me excited, it’s also the colours. Both the fabrics and colours were inspired, according to Vanessa, by fire places, red wine, trees, nature, textured bark, logs of wood, copper, brandy and port, creams and chocolate! Now I am not sure about you but a log cabin in a secluded forest dense with fir trees, complete with a roaring fire, and me with a glass of red wine and a huge box of chocolates, fits easily into my fantasy winter wonderland. It makes me think of outfits that I can snuggle up in, knitted cardis, cozy layers, long vests and tunics, anoraks, the classic trench and my personal favourite, the scarf. This year Metalicus have also introduced a Throw which is like a jacket cum blanket. Very cosy – very versatile, very wearable (watch out for it in the video)
Enough of me rattling on because I am quite sure the video will give you a better idea of the looks, not to mention a behind the scenes look at the shooting of the new range. You’ll also get to hear Vanessa Rochman talking through the range to Mia . Part of the collection shown in the video is available now, however some of it is an exclusive sneak peek for Mamamia readers, and will not be available in store until early April. I’m putting my name on the chocolate dress already. If I can’t eat it I may as well wear it.
What are you looking forward to wearing this winter?
