Last week I got to view the Poetry Autumn Winter 2018 collection. As per usual, there are so many items that I desperately want – and know you will too!

The inspiration for the collection comes from the historical le marchand des quatre saisons – the market of the four seasons.

The fresh produce markets of bygone eras were places of everyday wonderment, where people from all walks of life would congregate to touch, taste, smell and purchase their daily staples. Think delightfully eccentric folk who manned abundantly stocked stalls, old ladies selling zucchini flowers and sun kissed peaches, and silent mountain men with bushels of fragrant mushrooms and truffles. It’s the singular combination of these fairy- tale characters and their dewy-fresh produce that provided the vibrant colour palette inspiration for the Poetry AW18 collection.

I was also very happy to learn that 37% of the collection is locally produced.

The key neutral colour that underpins the collection is grey, and there are some many beautiful pieces in this very wearable hue.

Key pieces for the upcoming season include chunky knits that make for an effortless addition to the coveted layered look.

Florals take centre stage on long maxi dresses

Pieces that are traditionally perceived as evening-focussed, now make an easy transition to daywear – think sequin skirts paired with chunky knits.

Talking of evening wear, how exquisite is the dress below?

Bold red and ochre yellow add a beautiful vibrancy to the overall seasonal palette

Key pieces for the season include: a dress adorned with a gorgeous botanical print, a parka, as well as a grey cardigan in long-length silhouette

The must-have: A stunningly feminine wrap dress in dusty pink velvet.

I adore the “Prince of Wales” check suit with its stylish, structured trousers and blazer.

I love how Poetry’s winter coats always caters for all occasions. For easy wear, there’s the throw-on, open-end, lightweight long line coat. My favourite is the short sleeve tie-belt coat – perfect for showing off this season’s variety of enticing sleeve details.

When it comes to shoes, the main focus for winter will always be boots and Poetry has a great selection.

Once you’ve laid the groundwork for your AW18 outfit, it’s time to let your personality shine by customising your accessories to reflect your taste and style. You’ll find a lovely selection of super chic velvet gloves, wool berets, faux fur stoles, pom-pom beanies, oversized winter scarves and tassel earrings.

This season’s foremost bag silhouette is definitely the cross-body leather purse, but there really is a style for everyone from shoppers to stylish leather backpacks and structured totes.


I have a R1000 online voucher up for grabs from Poetry!

To stand a chance of winning it, like In My Bag blog on Facebook (HERE), then leave a comment below telling me which item(s) showcased in this blog post are your favourites. I’ll announce the winners name on Tuesday 3 April 2018 on In My Bag’s Facebook page.

The Poetry autumn/winter 2018 collection will be available in stores and online from April.
