“Blink” Events: Bacardi Beginnings introduces Bipolar Sunshine

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

So, if you’re as excited as us about our earlier announcement of the Rudimental gig for the Bacaradi Beginnings collaborations project, you’re probably wondering who this Bipolar Sunshine guy is, and what he’ll be bringing to the party…

Well, your wish is our command!

I think this is going to be an amazing collaboration. See you there!

“Blink” Retail: Isabel Marant x H&M= Fashion wishes coming true!

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

Wwwwhhhhhhooooooaaaaaaaaaa. My fashion prayers have been answered! It’s a tough fashion life when you have champagne taste but a beer budget (oh the glamour of running your own business!). Well, it was a tough call until H&M introduced their genius fashion collaborations.

The designer who’s collection I, season after season, lust after the most is that of Isabel Marant. Can you imagine how excited I was this morning to wake up to an email from H&M announcing that its autumn collaboration is this very Parisian designer! With her effortless, urban yet boho chic style, Isabel Marant has single handedly changed our perception of French fashion as well as created trends imitated by the whole fashion high street.

Put 14th November in your diary with multiple reminders, alarms and extra post it notes just to be sure, as this is the launch date for this collection in around 250 stores worldwide and online, the collection features clothing and accessories for women and teenagers. Isabel Marant will also, for the first time, create a collection for men.

“I am flattered by this collaboration: H&M works with the best designers and this invitation is an exciting honour. I aim at creating something real, that women want to wear in their everyday lives, with a certain carelessness, which I think is very Parisian: you dress up, but do not pay too much attention and still look sexy. The collection is infused with this kind of easiness and attitude. Everything can be mixed following one’s own instincts: my take on fashion is all about personality” says Isabel Marant.

“Blink” Retail: All Aboard the Liberty Express this Christmas

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Some month’s back I was delighted to be invited to the Liberty Press Day. That was pretty much in the midst of Summer time and I am only now feeling mentally ready to admit that Christmas is in fact just around the corner and so I am prepared to share some seasonal joy with you…

Liberty took inspiration from the Victorian age of luxurious steam train travel as well as classic Hollywood movie train moments from the like of ‘Brief Encounter’, ‘Some Like it Hot’ and ‘Murder on the Orient Express’. The Liberty Christmas windows will be transformed into a whole Victorian steam train, bursting with sumptuous and luxurious gift ideas, gold paper chains and festoon lights.

Here’s some highlights from the Christmas Press Day, and let me tell you, if Stella McCartney did an adult version of that super cute bunny onesie, I wouldn’t be wearing anything else for the whole Christmas holidays!

“Blink” Retail: Ganni Pop Up Shop at Anthroplogie, Chelsea

Friday, September 14th, 2012

Did you read our post about the Ganni pop up shop planned for the Kings Road Anthropologie store? Well, as of last night the pop up shop is now open for business and looking fabulous. The Anthropologie stores are always such stunning spaces (one day they may find me camped out in one of their lovely room sets!), and the Chelsea store is no exception. Within this store they maintain a gallery style space that houses varying installations, and it’s current incarnation is as a little bit of Copenhagen to ensure that the Ganni collection feels perfectly at home. Do pop down there to see the collection shown off so beautifully. The pop up shop will be in situ until 26th October.

Here are some shots to help tempt you down to the Kings Road…

“Blink” Streetstyle: Westfield Celebrates FNO and AW’12

Friday, September 7th, 2012

So, we couldn’t round up this Autumn Winter ’12 trend review without looking at what the best dressed boys are wearing. Westfield London have identified ‘Mr Dandy’ as their key menswear look for Autumn Winter ’12 and it was a treat to spot so many well dressed men at the Vogue’s FNO event last night, the first day of Westfield’s ‘Fashion Weekend’ in celebration of the launch of Autumn Winter ’12.

‘Mr Dandy’ is a super smart, well put together look featuring sports jackets or suits, bow ties, pocket squares and a clever balance of smart elements with a casual feel. Thanks again to everyone who stopped for us to shoot them and to the stores who let us shoot, especially Reiss who had a particularly stylish band of shop assistants last night.
