High street giant Marks and Spencer has announced the launch of a brand new collaboration with one of the UK's most iconic designers.

Following the successful launch of M&S X Ghost last year, the retailer has announced the continuation of the collaboration for Summer 21 - with a contemporary 15-piece edit designed exclusively for M&S and launching online and in-stores, Thursday 15 April.

M&S has welcomed back the iconic British brand to bring an exclusive collection of Summer dresses that reflect Ghost’s signature aesthetic and timeless detailing.

The collaboration continues to place style, quality, and comfort at the heart of the designs, championing exquisite attention to detail and premium quality, synonymous with the brand.

The seasonal offering of contemporary designs expands on the launch collection, with a fresh Summer palette, exclusive prints and bold new silhouettes. Ditsy florals contrast oversized blooms and chic spots, in a vibrant rainbow of colour, from punchy reds to soft lilacs. Beautiful fabrications feature throughout and as we move into Summer lighter more fluid weights are introduced.

A vintage sensibility is captured once again, and highlights include pretty ruffles, shirred detailing and beautiful sleeve finishes that further elevate the styles. We are also delighted that from Summer 21 the M&S X Ghost collection will be available in sizes 6-20, supporting our commitment to offer inclusive collections with trusted value.

The Summer styles build on the success of the debut, with the addition of some beautiful new silhouettes, fabrics and playful print updates.
