AW14 NO.2 FASHION COUNTDOWN

Embellishment. Lovely, lovely embellishment. The Christmas period is about all that sparkles, so its no surprise really that it was all over the catwalks. Christmas parties and new year’s outfits have loads of inspiration. If you read our number 3 in the countdown, it was heavily based around empowering clothing and strong statements. Although the glitz and glam of diamanté is typically associated with delicacy and daintiness, this season we are talking about BOLD ornamentation.  Large 3D florals sparkled their way over dresses, and extreme embroidery twisted its way over...

History Trip – No.3 AW14 trend

Disco fever? Garish prints? Mix and match, Pic n’ Mix? Swinging silhouettes? Exactly. Absolute absurdity. But really, we all love taking a trip back to the 60’s, 70’s and 90’s. Why? Because you could create any type of fashion madness you wanted. In the Autumn/Winter catwalks, there were lots of A-line silhouettes, bright colours, psychedelic patterns, and tailoring; all key in 60’s fashion.

Earthy colours such as brown, creams, reds and rust are incorporated, as well as heavy monochrome (specifically the McQueen show). Fur, knits and leather are the key materials, as a return to the organic comes through for the winter. Hair and beauty is minimal with this look. It’s a... Read More

clutch bags out of this world

So accessories are key to completing an outfit, and what better way than the ever so simple, but ever fashionable, clutch bag. Two of the key trends for this Autumn/Winter 14 is the 90’s mod – complete with bright colours, strong silhouettes, slogans and garish prints – and the Intergalactic – lots of metallics, shiny and shimmering materials, as well chunky boot platforms. With this in mind, take a look at  our Circus, Bridge and Theatre clutches. We’ve come up with some crazy galactic based prints for the Circus clutch,... Read More
