In my previous post I mentioned that as part of the Trafford Centre’s Big Night Out and Fashion Week, BANK was launching their new Ribbon Luxe range. The theme of the launch event was girls getting ready for a night out, and there was a hair stylist and nail technician on hand to treat shoppers and a bar serving virgin cocktails. The mezzanine level, which is a strking glass cube above the centre of the store, was decked out with twinkly lights and newly adorned with Ribbon Luxe branding to mark the occasion.
Nice to get an invitation in the post!
The Ribbon Luxe buying team were on hand to showcase the range (all wearing products from the collection) and there were free goodie bags with every Ribbon Luxe purchase on the night!
The collection itself is ideal for the Christmas party season, with plenty of little black dresses, sequins, embellishments and metallics. Highlights for me were the sequin leggings (priced at £25) and a very pretty peplum dress with an on-trend baroque velvet flock detail. Sadly this has sold so well that there was only one left in stock, but with new lines being released monthly, and with the girls modelling some of what is to come, there’s sure to be something festively perfect in the November drop.
In between getting myself a manicure (love this metallic burgundy colour from Barry M – Magnetic range) and checking out the new Ribbon Luxe collection, some other items in-store caught my eye too…
