Preview: Friday On My Mind for Autumn/Winter 2014

There's a fantastic season arriving soon from Friday On My Mind this Autumn.

All the Friday On My Mind faves are back for the new collection -- Friday On My Mind staple Retro T-Shirt, the Sailor top is back in a 3/4 sleeve version for Winter, in Black/Cream and Red, and a fave from last winter - the Valentine Dress is also returning later on in the season. In addition to this the Valentine style will also be available as a shirt with lace shoulder detail.

The jackets for this season are particularly good. The Tammy Coat (pictured left) will be available in yellow and pink. Also The Audrey Jacket is a short jacket with a matching skirt for a supremely retro twin set look.

There's a bold 60s inspired floral theme running through the collection, with the 'Fleur' Daisy design appearing in knits, dresses and shirts.

As always, a high light of the Friday On My Mind collection is the dresses - ranging from the everyday - such as The Nelly Dress in blue check, through to the more dressy styles, which will be perfect for upcoming festive parties! The Betty Dress in black polka dot with lace back feature, 1950s style leopard print Kitty Dress and the Noella blue floral dress will all turn heads at the Christmas party!

Coming Soon - Designer Duchess

 Coming soon to Atom Retro - Designer Duchess Faux Fur coats.

These fabulous coats have a supremely vintage 50s and 60s vibe - and all in soft and lovely faux fur. A relatively new brand, Designer Duchess was founded with the mission in mind to limit the use of real animal fur in fashion. Designer Duchess say, 'At Designer Duchess we believe that that the killing of animals for fashion is not only unethical but also devastating.... We do everything in our power to raise awareness and support the people and the foundations that fight to stop this from happening. We hope by raising awareness that people stop purchasing fashion items made with real fur.'

Designer Duchess will arrive at Atom Retro this autumn. Each beautiful faux fur coat will come with its own unique packing bag and coat brush, so you can keep your coat looking spruce and lovely.

 Styles include The Indiana Coat with 3/4 length sleeve (pictured above) in Foxy Brown. See below for more...
