August has arrived and that literally means Christmas has begun…right?! Well, it certainly has for a handful of UK retailers who have already given us a sneak peek as to what will hit shelves this festive season.
And now it’s time for John Lewis to step aboard the sleigh ride as the brand reveals its festive collections which have been inspired by the magic of nostalgia and the enchantment of Christmas.
“The design team took inspiration from our archives, giving treasured vintage prints a new lease of life. From baubles to wrapping paper and glassware to napkins, the carefully reimagined designs have been celebrated throughout the Christmas collection.” said Christmas Buyer for the store Lisa Cherry.
John Lewis’s six trends are Polar Planet, Rainbow Time Capsule, Christmas Cottage, Royal Fairytale, Winter Fairytale and Beyond Christmas.
