Anya Hindmarch...'Out Of This World' event

I was invited to an event at Cruise, Newcastle last week, which was used to promote the launch of Anya Hindmarch's new SS'14 collection in the store.  Here's what I wore...

Jacket: H 'n' M, Selfie Tee: £20 French Connection, Skirt: Miss Selfridge

Never a one to miss out on an opportunity to catch up with some of my favourite blogging lovelies, I also told Chloe, Lisa and Emma about the event, so we all met up and went along together.  At Cruise, we were greeted with as much lovely bubbly pink champagne as we could drink (and mango and orange juice for us drivers!) and then pointed in the direction of the new collection.

Now obviously the fashionista in me would've loved to have whipped out my plastic and snapped up one of those bad boys, but I've got a holiday to save up for.  Although if I could've picked any I would've picked the planet tote as it was really kooky and looked unusual and effective.  If you've got some spare cash you can get your hands on one right here!  I actually really like the clutches from this line too, but I won't be greedy!  Cruise were also running a promotion where if you bought a bag in store you received a free tassel (worth £150!!) but to be honest, they reminded me of Mama L's curtain tie-backs at home, so I think I would've politely declined...each to their own I guess!

As part of the event, there was a huge Tardis-like portal which we later found out was the 'What Planet Are You On?' generator.  Emma and I were first to venture over and take a closer look.  To use the generator, I had to put my name and date of birth into an Ipad, then a capsule popped out containing loads of cool and interesting facts like what my ruling planet is, what song was number one the day I was born and the date I was conceived (YUCK at the last one by the way!).  I also got a lollipop with Saturn inside, as that is my ruling planet.  We all took turns at the generator and had such a giggle sharing the weird and wonderful facts.  Anya first used the generator as part of the runway show for this SS'14 collection as a way of giving her guests a gift to remember the evening and as it was so successful she decided to roll it out at all of her events.  It was definitely my favourite part of the launch, and I've since read mine out to anyone that'd listen!!  Obviously you don't get the capsule (or the lollipop!) but if you want to use the generator you can do so here!

By this point, even though we'd had fun, we'd pretty much seen and done everything that there was to do at the event so we decided we'd make a swift exit and do some last minute shopping before the stores closed at 8pm.  Although before we left, I made sure to take a few snaps of some of the other high-end collections available in the store...
