I'm not keen on most of the collaborations. I popped in today during my lunch break and didn't see anything I liked (greengate, celia, lulu or cabbages). I think the fit is part of the problem as everything is really baggy. I tried on a dress in the cabbages range and it was hideous.
I bought 3 of the Lulu Guinness t-shirts last summer and they were worn a lot. Just dug them out for this year and they are still fine. I was happy with them! I didn't find that they shrunk or twisted at the seams etc. Nothing this year has caught my eye.
I have a Cath Kidston tee from a couple of years ago, and it is MUCH thicker and better quality (100% cotton rather than cotton/viscose mix which the Celia ones are) than the ones around now. I think that's more to do with the rocketing cost of cotton, though.
The Celia dresses are short, but I was planning on wearing cropped leggings or tights underneath. I've worn the red floral one and got caught in a gust of wind, so was happy to have something underneath.
