Speed Painting in Plymouth

Fun start to the week with 3rd year fashion students at Plymouth University working on a speed painting Plymouth inspired print, that would be used for a range of swimwear. The rules were simple: paint in circles dots or waves to the colour palette I selected. Every 10 minutes the students had to put down their paint brushes and move 3 steps to the right and start painting again.

KERING

What a week!  Our beautiful shoes – spanning 36 years – have finally been archived.  I found out what Stella McCartney’s been up to at the KERING sustainability talk on Monday night, hosted by London College of Fashion #LCFxKering.  Then Tuesday night was a blast from the past as Monica Lewinsky talked about cyber bullying after falling in love her boss (Mr Clinton!) at the age of 22.  Still controversial, but soo interesting.

Archive Bonanza!

At Red or Dead towers we were rooting through our archive this week, doing a bit of spring cleaning…Well a bit might be an understatement. It’s been so long since we had a good look at our vintage stock we forgot just how much beautiful shoes and specs we had just tucked away. So many memories so much hard work and all worth it.

Camden Market

We’re working on our new website and we thought “what better way to get inspired than to return to our roots at camden market!” We had so much fun taking pictures and eating delicious food to inspire our new takeaway themed website. We hope you have as brilliant a time visiting our new website as we did visiting our home away form home where it all started.

Oh what a night, yes it’s that time of year again….. Spectacle wearer of the year! Held at 8 Northumberland ave, London, the good, bad and ugly of the Spectacle world plus a plethora of celebs, who wear glasses (or pretend to) meet to raise money for Kidscape and to have a jolly good night out celebrating face furniture.

HOT ROD!

We love a good archive print at Red or Dead and since we have so many we thought to ourselves “why not turn them into badges?” and so it began! But whats a good badge without a charity shop denim jack? Our Autumn/Winter Schuh photoshoot is going to be one of our best to date. Combining all of our old prints with our new shoes. We can’t wait to share the results with you guys so keep your eyes peeled.
