Gok Wan to launch winter line for Tu at Sainsbury
Oct '13
Marking a two year milestone, Gok Wan launches his tenth collection for Tu at Sainsbury's. Launching on 7th November, just in time for party season whether it be casual drinks or high-octane glamour, the new collection is full of Gok's tailoring tricks with added luxury texture and exquisite embellishments.

“Celebrating two gorgeous years of Gok for Tu at Sainsbury’s, prepare to be dazzled with stunning looks for every occasion this season.” Gok Wan

The 21-piece collection offers quintessentially British style, with all of Gok’s trademarks and more: stand out separates, impactful dresses, classic lines and old school luxury. Combining timeless style with influences from key AW13 trends, including a mixture of texture, aubergine hues and masculine inspired tailoring, the range is full of investment pieces without a high price tag. From quilted shoulders, to cable knits, pleats and piping the beauty is in the detail.

Classic tailoring and quality knitwear never go out of fashion, so figure fixing pencil skirts, chic trousers and gorgeously soft-to-the-touch knits are at the heart of the collection. The houndstooth pencil skirt, complete with fabulous godet fishtail, can be paired with the matching houndstooth wrap top for a statement look, or given a casual, elegant twist with the cream cowl neck jumper. The satin stripe trousers are a sexy take on the classic men’s tux trousers, with a form fitting style that’s smart for the office and chic for after hours.

Bringing the classic, figure fixing shift up to the minute the purple ,Grace’s jewel dress combines this season’s must have colour, with added jewel embellishment for high impact style guaranteed to turn heads at the Christmas party. The Mandarin Oriental dress is the ultimate, timeless LBD: it features a twist front with in-built shape control and is easy to accessorise, making it the perfect go-to for any occasion.

Versatility and effortless glamour are key to the success of the Gok for Tu range, demonstrated by the easy to wear, embellished collar shirt from collection 8 being the fastest selling style to date. This collection the embellished collar jacket and pleated back blouses offer this elegance and anytime appeal. Gok is famous for figure-enhancing shapes so the ever popular, best selling ponte pencil skirt is back with a new textured fabric.

Gok Wan comments: “Party season is a non-stop rollercoaster of work functions, family do’s and get-togethers so I wanted to create a Winter collection that has it all. By mixing beautifully detailed fabrics, with classic figure enhancing styles, all the work is done for you.”

James Brown, Director of Tu Clothing comments: “The Gok for Tu range has been a fantastic partnership for us over the past two years and continues to go from strength to strength. This year we’ve been selling one piece of the collection every 14 seconds. Gok’s philosophy of empowering women by creating beautiful, flattering clothes that inspire confidence resonates perfectly with our customers.”
