Country Classic Lucinda's SS20 Collection Review
During this uncertain time, we are unable to head out into the world and enjoy our annual summer activities and so instead, we caught up with Lucinda from Country Classic Lucinda to find out her initial reaction to our SS20 collection.
Fairfax & Favor launched their new Spring/Summer collection. And oh my goodness…. I AM IN LOVE! I felt a pang of needing to add everything to basket, and we can’t even do that as they aren’t quite available yet!!!!
If you’re a regular follower of the blog and my instragam (@countryclassiclucinda), you’ll know I have a bit of an obsession with the F&F brand. By obsession- I mean a serious obsession. I’ve been purchasing from this brand since they started out, and if truth be told- when do you ever see me in anything else?!
So I thought it would be fun to do an initial reactions blog to the current Spring/Summer releases showing on the F&F website!
Can we start with my absolute favourite release please?! Let me introduce to you, The Monaco Wedge. WHATTTTTTT! Literally just what! I can’t deal with these incredible, beautiful creations. I’ve actually been scrolling long and hard looking at espadrille wedges for this season as I’ve seen some gorgeous posts recently featuring some. For me, nothing would compare to a F&F pair, so I was immediately sold.
These would be perfect with floaty dresses, white jeans or cute shorts. In my opinion, these are going to be a footwear essential this summer.
Coming in three colour ways, there is a choice of Raspberry, Tan or Khaki. For me, raspberry is the colour of choice here. You know I love experimenting with a bold colour, and these would have the ability to transform any neutral outfit! They retail at £145.00.

Ok, next up we have two new variations of the ever popular Brancaster Sandal. I love these sandals, I actually tried the Tan/Navy combination last year but I found them a little too big and the smaller size wasn’t available in stock at the time, so I ended up missing out .I remember these being pretty ‘insta popular’ last year, so I have no doubt that the release of two new colour ways, Khaki and Jaguar, will be welcomed by many. For those wanting to make a statement, the Jaguar are for you, I absolutely love these, and I predict they are going to be pretty popular in pictures amongst the instagram crowds. For those wanting a more subtle look, the Khaki offers a classic spring tone- perfect for pairing with jeans, crops or your favourite summer dress.

This is the footwear release that I was probably least sure about from the collection – The Monaco Flat. These wouldn’t typically be my usual style, but they are giving me serious holiday vibes all the same. If the wedge shoe isn’t quite for you, then these flats should be right up your street. These also come in the same three colours as the Monaco Wedge – Tan, Raspberry and Khaki, and retail at £115.00.

I am loving this Raspberry colour way! Having spotted the Monaco Wedge first, I was then excited to see several more products available in this colour. The new Sennowe Belt, Mini Windsor Handbag, Chatham II Coin Purse are right up my street. Is there anything screaming more Spring/Summer than this bright, bubbly pink?! I will 100% be ordering the Sennowe belt, this is a perfect colour pop for an outfit, and will create the perfect centre piece. I’m already dreaming of it cinching in the waist of a perfect LWD (little white dress! 😉). HELLO SUMMER!

Well, well, well, what do we have here! For all of those tan bag lovers out there, heaven has just arrived for you in the form of a new Mini Loxley Cross Body Bag, Windsor Handbag and Loxley Shoulder Bag. I am getting serious feels for the Mini Loxley. I keep seeing this style bag popping up, but if you know me, you know just how much I feel the need to carry round – I am not a light packer. So I have always worried the Mini Loxley wouldn’t quite be enough space for me. Someone please challenge me to try it, so I have an excuse to purchase this little beauty! The Loxley Shoulder bag has ALWAYS been my favourite F&F handbag, so I needed no convincing that the release of the Tan leather in this product was a good idea. And then finally we welcome another style to the ever popular Windsor collection. This is probably F&F’s most popular handbag type, so I think the Tan leather will be a very welcomed addition. Tan leather goes with absolutely everything, and will just get better with age, so these three bags will absolutely be worth the investment.

The Jaguar print … just wow! I think we all know how I feel about animal prints – I LOVE IT. So first things first, I NEED these Limited Edition Jaguar Haircalf Tassels. How stunning are they, and they are going to look amazing on all boot types, I would be particularly excited to see them on my Tan Amiras! We also have in this collection The Henley, The Mini Windsor Handbag and The Sennowe Belt. I currently own the Henleys in Navy and they are the most comfortable shoe ever, so if you are looking for a statement loafer this Spring/Summer. Look no further! The Sennowe Belt and Mini Windsor are popular F&F items already, and absolute staples, so if you’re wanting to jazz up your wardrobe and inject some statement prints – now is your chance. With this print I’m thinking white jeans, chunky neutral cardigans, and a Pimms in hand.. hold tight, those days will be coming!

Lots of love, Lucinda xo
