In exciting news for Sienna Miller fans, Marks & Spencer has announced the British actress – and veritable style savant – as the face of its autumn winter 2023 campaign titled Anything But Ordinary. The collection is a strong mix of outerwear, suiting (Miller’s favourite piece is a tweed blazer) paired with chunky knitwear and colour block separates, with an emphasis on high-low dressing – that is, pieces that can be as easily dressed up for drinks as they can be dialled down for the school run. (Speaking of, who can forget Miller’s school run looks in last year’s Netflix show Anatomy of A Scandal?) Elsewhere, stand-out pieces include cream tailored trousers and a checkered overcoat with softly sculpted shoulders, while a pleated dress with an ombré pattern is a luxe take on laissez faire dressing: we wouldn’t expect anything less from the woman who launched a cultural obsession with bohemia. The collection is available in M&S stores and online from Thursday September 7.
There’s possibly no bigger validation for a fashion brand today than being endorsed by Kate Moss. And Anine Bing – purveyor of wearable wardrobe staples with a rebellious edge – has nabbed Moss as the global face of the brand. It’s a real coup for Bing, a former model and self-declared Moss obsessive who started her namesake Los Angeles-based brand eleven years ago, and has used Moss’ likeness on her sell-out sweatshirts. “Kate Moss has always been my #1 muse. She’s been on every collection mood board since the beginning — the most iconic of them all,” Bing said on Instagram. Naturally, the new season collection has more than a few nods to the 1990s with leather blazers, white tank tops and low-waist leather trousers all present and correct. Anine Bing stockists include Brown Thomas, Seagreen, Gallery 9 and www.aninebing.com.
