LONDON FASHION WEEK

So, in the midst of all the Fashion Weeks for SS15, we thought we’d show you some of our favourite styles and snaps from LFW (our home-ground)! There’s so much inspiration from off the catwalks.  We’ve spotted lots of monochrome, sheer materials, experimentation with textures, funky floral and palm graphics, to name a few… Pairing elegant dresses with a casual top, jacket or pair of shoes was seen a lot, and so the general trends take a much more relaxed style. Playing with the likes of faux fur, foiling, or feathering for example, added a playful element to many... Read More

ASHLEYWILLIAMS X REDORDEAD

Kitsch, irreverent, and print-mad. We like to think of Red or Dead as all three. And what better way to show it off and turn heads than pairing up with Brit designer, Ashley Williams. Renown for her humorous, quirky and heavily graphics-based collections, Ashley Williams studied womenswear at the University of Westminster, and then moved on to join Fashion East, an enterprise set up to help up and coming design talent get off the ground. Instantly recognised as ‘one to watch’, Ashley has since been taking the fashion world by... Read More

AW14 Behind the Scenes shoot with Red or Dead

So, whenever our new collection is about to drop, it means the madness of a photoshoot is on it’s way over to us. We need to get some great photos together so that all you fashionistas can see what great stuff we have about to launch. This photoshoot is for our AW14/15 collection, but as we have some big things coming up soon, we needed to keep this one simple and low-key. We were thinking a mix of school drop out, and pretty in punk. We had two lovely models, Camille Munn and BB, to front the shoot, and... Read More

Our top trend for summer is…

SPORTS LUXE! Its ALL over our new BANK collection so you probably guessed it, but easy-to-wear, loose fitting, and fuss-free garments are certainly the summer style trend number one. It’s mainly minimalist and monochrome, with flashes of bright colour, has a heavy varsity influence, and is crazy for crop tops and co-ords. It’s an easy trend that anyone can wear, and you’ll see it in the likes of both high street and designer stores. Yes, there is lots of flesh on show, but please don’t shy away! We’re talking wide legged... Read More

Red or Dead Bloggers Event 2014 – AW14

Our clothing collection has officially landed! It’s cool, sporty and fresh. And since we love to rave and shout about our products, as well as meet all our favourite style gurus (along with lotsa food and drink) we held our RODKEEPCOOL event here at our HQ in London. To start the event – and since we always love going back to our roots as a quintessentially British brand – we had a classic red London bus pick the lucky ladies up, bringing them round to our offices. We’re pretty lucky to... Read More

Red or Dead, bagit, come in we're open, black, bag, slogan, ss14 01/07/2014

Red or Dead summer countdown

The catwalks went crazy with slogans for Spring/Summer 14.  An easy, relaxed style is sought after in summer, and there’s no better way than through an easy-to-wear tee or sweater, jazzed up with a bold, fun, cheeky message. The most notable slogan tee is that of Moschino; a clever up take on the globally known MacDonald’s – very cheeky! Another one we love is the Sister by Sibling HAPPY sweatshirt. Paired with some bright bottoms, and bold pop colour make-up, you cant go wrong. And lastly the BIG B (Beyoncé) in a ‘Parental Advisory... Read More

Red or Dead’s summer trend countdown

Hotting up our summer at number 3 is… ‘THE CAPE’ !… And no, not the superhero type, but the super fashion HOT type. As the weather is heating up, us ladies are getting our legs out, and there’s no better way to complete an outfit than with a beautiful trail left behind you; enter, THE CAPE. Depending on what style of look you’re going for, a long cardigan can often add a boho feel to your outfit;  a slouchy and easy style for example, coupled with some shorts. Or, if... Read More
