I Haven't Shopped at Debenhams for Years—These 9 Pieces Just Changed My Mind

I think the last thing I bought from Debenhams was a coffee machine for my husband's birthday—and that was three years ago. Yes, I've been vaguely aware of its designer collaborations and would walk past the Oxford Street store at the weekend, but for some reason, I've never had much motivation to have a browse. Perhaps it's something to do with the unwieldy selection of brands it houses within its stores—I'm sure there are plenty of gems to be found, but I've never quite had the energy to apply myself.

However, when I heard about Debenhams' latest collaboration with designer-of-the-moment Richard Quinn, I had a feeling it was going to be a good'un. Only two months previous, I had been blown away by Quinn's staggeringly beautiful A/W 19 line, so I knew I was in for a treat. Needless to say, I have not been disappointed.

Capturing Quinn's passion for print, the collection is a medley of statement midi dresses, '60-inspired minis and scarf print skirts. At the top of my list is the daisy-print prom dress, which is begging to be worn with my new Teva hiking sandals, while the floral mini shirtdress is a perfect match for my favourite knee-high boots. More of this please, Debenhams! Scroll down to see and shop my edit of the best Richard Quinn x Debenhams pieces.
