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
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
MONOCHROME! To put it in black and white…it’s black and white! Seen in many of the catwalk shows, this is an easy summer style saviour .

Plus, mixing black and white with a pop of colour goes down a treat too, instantly lightening up your look (our New Day heels do this perfectly if you... Read More

What unites these ladies is their youthful attitude, total love of clothes (be it designer or things they’ve found in a charity shop), and their lust for life. NO botox, NO plastic surgery; these ladies have redefined what it is to be old. Healthy, active, thriving and utterly FABULOUS! We are now seeing older models in the press (including Jean from this documentary!), as well as blogs like Advanced Style catapulting... Read More
Red or Dead has such a great history. Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway built it into a huge, iconic British brand, leading it to become one of the top names in fashion. Simultaneously punky, pretty, and totally mad (check out our history page if you haven’t done it already!). SO without further ado, here are some of our favourite pieces and prints in the Red or Dead archive. With the shiny new website, we want to show you what we are all about and where we’ve been. Enjoy!
