My Press days were continued with Lewis and Leigh PR who showcased a wonderfully colourful and quirky collection of labels. It was held in the fashionista’s favourite Sanderson Hotel in Soho. There were so many striking pieces- including the London Fashion Week AW14 collection of Sadie Clayton which can be seen on a previous post in its full spendour; https://thelaststraggler.wordpress.com/2014/02/20/lfw-aw14-the-bold-and-beautiful/ . Other brands showed the fine line than can exist between art and fashion but the ingenious designers still managed to create something wearable.
Since the launch of my boutique www.realmoftreasure.com I have been completely obsessed with handmade jewellery and was mesmerized by this enchanting collection by Lucky Little Blighters which could just have easily been seen in a sculpture gallery!
The pop art mixed with rock and roll style of Shara Hayz collection put a smile on my face.. This designer of most definitely one to watch. She featured on Rihanna’s fashion competition TV series Styled to Rock and her creations have been worn by Ana Matronic (Scissor Sisters), AME and Lara Stone.
I had a lovely conversation with one half of Beau Homme about the intriguing and unlikely inspiration behind this collection. The beautiful illustrations reveal a hidden message about the way we communicate in the social media era. Each piece is full of symbolism so wearing one of these great easy to wear pieces would make you fashionable and philisophical, without having to make a FEMEN style statement.
I love the simple but striking design of this typical effortlessly cool Scandinavian brand Orphan Bird . I’ll always love bold colours and crazy prints but brands like these make me toy with the idea f giving my wardrobe a minimalist makeunder. For now I’ll just admire!
