The following is a Sponsored Post for eBay Fashion
For spring/summer 2012 eBay created a lookbook that celebrates the unique nature of personal style, by bringing together a selection of pieces from the website’s vast array of online outlets, and showcasing the best of this season’s looks. They chose three real women to front the campaign; Lara Jade, Amal Fashanu, and Italian fashion blogger Eleonora Carisi.
One of the great selling points about buying on eBay is how you can shop from a wide range of collections, selecting new and second hand pieces to create your individual look. Helping to inspire shoppers, the eBay s/s 12’ collection showcases this perfectly: Palazzo pants, plain t-shirts, cool striped jumpers and denim flares all feature in the lookbook. For those fancying a smarter look, city shorts, cuffed jumpers, printed trousers and crisp white shirts also feature, whilst peter pan collar dresses and leather jackets are perfect for the cold summer evenings.
Key prints include animal, stripes, polka dot and floral and a variety of hemlines in the form of mini and maxi dresses ensure there’s a stylish look for all tastes.
eBay recently launched their spring/summer 12’ collection with an innovative, interactive Twitter Party, inviting top UK fashion bloggers to style a winning look from the new collection. Throughout the evening photographers snapped the looks in a professional studio, before the bloggers took to Twitter to rally support from their own networks, hoping to win the prize of a trip to the hip Mama Shelter Hotel in Paris.
Over 100 high-street brands are sold directly on eBay, alongside all the individual boutiques and overseas sellers. It is also a treasure trove for one-off vintage pieces. Together this makes eBay fashion the go-to place for spring/summer inspiration and beyond.
