SS15 Separates from the Star Collection by Julien Macdonald at Debehnams

Scuba Pants and Neon Bright Lime Top by Julien Macdonald, Designer at Debenhams. Sizes available from UK8 – UK20

This week I am delighted to talk about a designer collection at Debenhams.

Star by Julien Macdonald is an affordable collection of separates and dresses with each item in the mid price range. Typically prices ranging from £25 – £65.

I love the flexibility of separates for mixing and matching and varying a look.  For SS15 the Star Collection offers plenty of choice for light, bright, floaty and patterned looks.

It is disappointing that the sizing only goes up to a plus size UK20 because many of the shapes of tops (in particular) would look great on a curvier figure.  I hope that pester power from the plus size community will get this size range increased.

There is just no escaping the neon bright influence and this wonderful lime pleat front top is perfect for wearing with trousers, skirts or smart bermuda style shorts.  I love the chiffon style sleeves and the loose open neck fit.  The body of this top is lined.

I have paired this top with a pair of floral pattern trousers called scuba pants.  It is hard to know exactly what to call the various cuts and styles of trousers now available on the market but suffice to say that these are definitely smarter than a legging and have the cut and fit of a pair of ankle grazer trousers.

I am 5’9″ tall and ordinarily a size UK18.  I am however wearing these trousers in a size UK16.  There is plenty of “give” in the material of the fabric so I do think that a size UK22 will get in comfortably to the size UK20 (the largest size available in the Star range).

Please have a look at my video below to see close up details of the top and trousers.

    Hi Diane
    I met you at Plus North – I was the Scarlett and Jo designer. I have been at Debenhams for the last few months – so I enjoyed your Juliem MacDonald review. It would be lovely to talk to you again and get additional feedback on the sort of product you think Debenhams should do for Plus Size -what we are doing right and wrong.
    The Collection at Debenhams does go up to bigger sizes – so it may be nice to look at some of the product there. My designs for this brand should be hitting down over the next few months – and there are some lovely dresses – long,jersey and summer proms and blouses that you may like to review.
    Keep in touch – I would enjoy your feedback
    Angela
