Last Thursday I attended Fossil’s Spring/Summer 2011 press day at the Charlotte Street Hotel, an unexpected choice of venue but it was definitely a good choice. Fossil featured a range of their bags, wallets and also their clothing range- an impressive collection, read what I thought about it after the cut….excuse the photos.

Fossil had some great pieces from their accessories on the day; their watches especially impressed me. I am a fan of watches with big faces and it looks like this trend is back in; they’ve got watches with rose gold patterns, which are really subtle but visible- also making a comeback next season is the Ceramic watch. I love these; the straps are made from smooth slabs of ceramics, which means they are really lightweight but also quite trendy. I also liked the fact that the faces of the ceramic watches were made from steel and featured a classic style dial.
The men’s wallets also caught my attention, whilst there were a few wallets with more detail, I preferred the plain leather ones- very simple with discreet details such as stitching around the edges. One thing I really like about the brand is the quality of their products. All leather goods are 100% good quality and their prices are very reasonable. These watches I’ve been banging on about range between £90 and £150. Now if you want to get yourself an Armani Ceramic watch you’ll be paying over £250… but it’s the same quality #imjustsayin.
Their bags, again 100% leather with great texture and feel. I mostly liked the brown ones because they look less plain than the black ones- there were a couple of army style messenger bags that represented the army/military line which is also making a return for Fossils SS11.
Fossil are known world wide for their exceptional accessories and their clothing range is now on the rise and is definitely one to look out for. Here are some photos below, my dslr was absent so I used my phone instead… next time you walk past a Fossil store make sure you check it out, with their quality products and affordable prices you’ll be sure to find something!
