Madrid Fashion Week: Couchel : El Corte Ingles

Whilst we all moan that fashion week is wildly underserving plus size women (this much is true), over in Madrid, mega department store El Corte Ingles is quietly slaying it on the plus size fashion front.

For Madrid fashion week (which is happening right now) the department store laid on a series of full runway shows featuring plus size models and 3 major plus size brands.

The show was packed full of some of our fav pro plus models including SLiNKettes Louise O’Reilly, Melissa Koole and Ali Tate!

And let me tell you we are all a bit obsessed with the Couchel collection.

Somewhere between military might – think khaki and soft camel shades with oversized frogging <3 and some kind of 70’s shindig – see chiffon maxis in paisley perfection, fuchsia pink and black lace with delicate ruffle details this was the collection that got us emptying our bank accounts on the spot!

You can see the quality from the runway, we loved the classic navy / white and red combo expressed through fringed knitwear and Moroccan inspired kaftans with delicate tasselled details and the use of sheer chiffon and gathering was simple but extremely effective in enriching the silhouettes.

Over sized is not a trend that often makes it to the plus size arena but we love the oversized duffle coats and androgynous parkas and trenches that ensure you can be totally stylish and snuggly next season. Why not check out the video for yourself!

Here we take a look at Couchel @ El Corte Ingles
