With spring just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to dust off your winter blues and update your wardrobe.

Debenhams has made it more tempting than ever, with two to-die-for British designer lines heading into their second season: Giles Deacon and Savannah Miller.

With printed dresses, embellished jackets, oversized macs and, for the first time, lingerie, the new collections are tailor-made for the elegant modern woman. Best of all, you can win a year of free shopping by entering their exciting competition.

“Nine by Savannah Miller is a collection that is versatile and can be worn every day in a cool and contemporary way,” says Suzanne Harlow, Group Trading Director at Debenhams.

"And adding Giles to our stable of designers reinforces Debenhams’ credentials of working with cutting edge design talent, and offers our customer a vast amount of choice from classic through to modern styles."

Savannah Miller's much awaited second season sees the introduction of beautiful, slinky lingerie and nightwear. Maintaining Miller’s signature bohemian vibe, the collection incorporates star print and lace trim for a trendy yet sumptuous feel.

The collection still features its distinctly vintage ready to wear line too; look out for fringed leather and suede jackets, textured accessories and embellishment to boot.

“The range is inspired by the eclectic and bohemian, chic way that cool girls dress,” says Savannah of her new line.

The new collection by Giles Deacon keeps in line with the retro theme, but takes it up a notch – taking a glamour-girl approach to each and every piece. Whereas Savannah’s pieces are easy to mix and match for work or any other occasion, Giles is all about getting noticed.

“The woman who wears my clothes has a playful style and loves to dress up,” Giles explains of his line. “She is fearless yet light hearted, and when she puts on a piece of clothing I want her to feel amazing as well as make heads turn.”

Iconic pieces include navy fluid culottes, a scenic print dress, and a chic scalloped edge jumpsuit ideal for dressing up or down.

Can’t make it to Britain any time soon? Never fear, both collections are available online – and the delivery charges are cheaper than ever. International shoppers at Debenhams can now pay in their local currency and make payments with Paypal, making it easy to shop the latest of British fashion no matter where you are.

And just in time for the warmer weather, Debenhams is offering the chance to make it all free. Don’t miss the competition – you could win a full year of shopping. Don’t forget to invite your friends overseas to enter too: for each friend who registers, you get five more chances to win. The more the merrier, after all! Click here to enter.
