Marks and Spencer announces the final instalment of the unique collaboration with Anna Smit and The Royal College of Art

Marks and Spencer is proud to present the final RCA Limited Collection as designed by overall winner Anna Smit. Selected from 10 shortlisted students in September 2010, Anna Smit has been working with the M&S design team to create a capsule collection of stylish staples as a continuation of her winning designs.

Said: Anna Smit:  “This collection is a continuation of the previous collection I did for Marks & Spencer. I have looked at opposites in simple silhouettes, fluid shapes in contrast with rigid shapes and how to flow from one to the other. Fabrics have either been manipulated so that they themselves transform from soft to solid or appropriated to specific cuts allowing their structure to transform garment silhouettes.”

The capsule collection comprises of four tailored pieces including jersey ruched leg trousers £39.50, a tobacco fluid form top £35 and two dresses; a colour block dress £49.50 and a navy draped dress £45. The collection launches on www.marksandspencer.com and in the Marble Arch store on 8th September 2011.
