For some people, the changing of the season is all about nature, but we get more excited about all the new lines that find their way into our favourite shops. The Platform in Macduff, based in the old railway station buildings, has already established itself as a firm favourite with the North-east’s fashionistas and the addition of new ranges across the store is eagerly anticipated.
In womenswear, check out Cayro, an innovative but very wearable Spanish label influenced by the latest trends, but never following them mindlessly. Another new designer, Lauren Vidal Paris, proves that you needn’t always sacrifice comfort for style, with a plain colour palette and feminine silhouettes combining to make the ideal base for a capsule wardrobe. New Spring/Summer collections have also arrived from perennial favourites like TIA, Latte, Laura Bernal and Carla Ruiz, so no matter what your wardrobe needs, you’ll find it at The Platform.
Should you be shopping for someone else, you’ll also find some amazing new glassware in the gift department, some with bubbles of colour in the base, while others have fashionable copper accents. There’s also a great selection of drink related gifts and prints.
The homeware section is also having a makeover for spring, with new furniture, lighting and accessories from the wonderful Eichholtz and a range of wall, table and floor lamps from Heathfield, which are expertly made in Britain. And if you can’t quite make up your mind? Why not deliberate over your choices over coffee and cake at the delightful tearoom?
Whether it’s an outfit for a special occasion, a wardrobe update, something new for the home or the perfect gift, The Platform offers a great shopping trip and always has something a bit different!
