Designer Collaboration

As we are all aware that some of the major names on the UK high street are collaborating with designers, to offer us “affordable” versions of their collections. H&M started the trend collaborating with designers in 2004 such as Karl Lagerfield, Stella McCartney, Victor & Rolf, Versace and most recently Marni.

Topshop released there collaboration with Mary Katrantzou to coincide with London Fashion Week, where they showcased funky printed and structured dresses, tops, shirt, trousers and accessory’s. We, like most people, have to shop on a budget so we get excited about designers, we can’t afford, collaborating with high street chains where we shop, but we expect reasonable prices, £350 for a polyester dress in not affordable.

For us designer high street collaborations are starting to loose their appeal. We are looking for quality made, great designed clothing with attention to material, construction and overall detail. When we compare clothes today to vintage pieces, which have already survived years of wear and tear, there really isn’t any comparison to the quality of construction. Buying vintage is not only green but your also getting the best quality and value for money clothing available to us at this moment in time. I am keeping my eye out for the made in UK tags, that sadly, we no longer see in most of our high street garments. A great place to find vintage, with out having to rummage, is ASOS Market Place where there is a wide selection of Menswear and Womenswear. 
Happy Shopping!

Style Q&A- Catwalk to High Street!

So after all the excitement of seeing the beautiful collections at London Fashion Week & beyond, we have been inundated (literally) with emails from you guys with questions about re-creating the looks on a budget, so hold on tight here we gooooooooooooooooooo.


Temperley London





The elegance to Temperley’s collection is the beautiful vintage feel they create by taking the extra time and care to produce and make their garments. To recreate the look, on a budget, look out for vintage gems, like we found on Ada’s Attic on Asos Marketplace, https://marketplace.asos.com/listing/tops/hand-beaded-vintage-top/272800, Not only can you find an absolute steal, hand beaded, UK made, Vintage top all for £35! you are also more or less guaranteed to have a different and eye catching outfit. Vintage pieces are also way to make high street pieces more your own. Above we have given you two outfit ideas on how you could wear the same Vintage Top, one is smart suitable for a nice evening out and the other could be for a festival or weekend in the city! 
Right were off now to buy that top from Ada’s Attic before you guys do 😉

The king…is….a GIRL!

Here are a few shots from the shoot we did a few weeks ago… the concept it taking all the male icons and putting our twist on it…Using it as inspiration and re-creating them… This is just one of many that we have planned…Who do you think will be next?

Up close and personal with Newgen

As were sure you are all aware Newgen works with up and coming designers to showcase and bring you new talent. Menswear is really on fire this season and you guys out there are being spoiled for choice, I am slightly jealous! Your being offered jazzy prints below and beautifully simple tailoring and new ways to style garments. Footwear is also hotting up with cool shades in formal footwear, something that is new. Were really loving it so here are our favs!

Menswear Day 6 at LFW!

Whenever I go into shops I always feel sorry for Men, who usually have a small selection squeezed into the back corner. But after seeing what is on offer from the designers showing at London’s Fashion Week, I no longer have any sympathy! Guys you are being spoiled. From cool classic cuts to crazy out there wacky prints, layers and simple styling you have everything on offer to you that us women do. Enjoy!

Ashish A/W 2012


Graphics, prints, sequins, metallic and everything in between. I’m not sure if I like the collection or if i am just overwhelmed by looking at it….
Aminaka Wilmot A/W 2012


A space inspired collection, The strong silhouettes really bind the collection together.
Dion Lee A/W 2012


Beautiful attention to detail, love the cut out panels! Absolutely love this collection.

Over the top “frilly” outfits from Mary K this season. A stray away from the heavily structured pieces we are use to seeing. Beautiful colours!

Bally collaboration with Central St Martins

Now we LOVE finding new talent and are always on the look out for new designers be it in menswear, womenswear or accessories. We know how hard it is to break into to the fashion industry so we want to show case as many new designers as possible. 
Below is Bally’s collaboration with Central St Martins, beautiful, clean, simple lines and outstanding tailoring. What is there not to love!

Day 3!

You know the roll…. Here are our favs from day 3! We have soooooo much choice to look forward to!
Acne A/W 2012

Bright neons mixed with pastel shades and leather! How could you not love it!?

Margret Howell A/W 12

Cute pleated skirts in muted tones, straight leg trousers and cropped knitted jumpers, were thinking wardrobe staples!

Louise Gray A/W 2012

Clashing prints bright colours and wacky over the top hair and earings… not for the wall flowers of us but take elements and mix with jeans, pleated skirts or leggings and you have a great diverse and fun wardrobe!

Mulberry A/W 2012

Ah the English sweethearts Mulberry. Were not surprised to see beautiful prints, silhouettes and fabrics waltzing down the runway. We are loving the movement in the fabrics and the bright Orange tones used to warm up, an otherwise, dark palette. Hands down one of the best collections yet in our eyes. The Dog’s on the catwalk might have clinched it;)
Nichole Farhi A/W 2012

An elegant collection. Loving the black dress with the black and yellow sequins!

Thomas Tait A/W 2012

Cool oversized coats to keep us warm in Winter in a very wearable and flattering shades, brightened up with Yellow Leather trousers! Nice twist, looking forward to seeing more from Mr Tait!
