We also feel strongly for white in a dense, solid, calm, defined, repetitive, constructed way across every aesthetic area of our lives, our surroundings, our clothes, our makeup and our belongings. We especially like this approach to white for Autumn Winter.

“Blink” Reports: Introducing Menswear

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

We’re very excited about our new monthly report title. Yes. we have entered the world of menswear!

By popular demand, we have added a monthly retail report featuring over 150 images per month, covering all aspects of trend-driven men’s fashion from ultra formal to super casual, plus all the accompanying key accessories too. The majority of our business is still very much womenswear focused, but this really adds a new level of interest, excitement and diversity to the information that we are collating, reviewing and analyzing.

Here’s a snapshot of the most recent colour review that we published, from the May’13 report. We really love this pink toned palette for menswear. It’s actually really pretty close the the prevailing colour trend in this month’s womenswear too.

“Blink” Retail: Monochrome

Friday, December 14th, 2012

A clear statement of commercial intent, but also a wonderfully impactful look. We do love a bit of monochrome. Yes, sometimes fashion is black and white. Simplicity really is, more often than not, the key to chic.

“Blink” SS’12: Rochas rocks our world

Monday, January 9th, 2012

I have to say that Rochas isn’t one of the first names that springs to mind when I’m thinking of my favourite labels, or even when I think of the more influential names in the fashion industry. When I spotted this SS’12 show in a couple of the magazine show round ups, I was intrigued and wanted to see more. It was like a wonderfully welcome breath of fresh air during one of my many days spent trawling the show coverage, trying to divine what I’m feeling will evolve into SS’13’s key trends.

Rochas’ artistic director, Marco Zanini described this collection “Like a journey through the vortex of cinema.” Well, if you fall into this particular vortex, you’ll emerge like a Hitchcock heroine who has collided with a large dose of B movie quirkiness. ‘New Look’ silhouettes, refined and classic textile choices, a pastel infused palette and a bonkers floral print were all perfectly accessorised with beehive hairdos and cool, cats eye shades. Well, Mr Zanini, you have a new fan. If I could, I would be a Rochas girl for every day of Spring Summer 2012…

London Fashion Week: Damaris are “Packing Heat”

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

At LFW we were fortunate enough to be invited to see this amazing movie which has been created by director, Johnny Green, to showcase the wonderful SS’12 collection for Damaris. Featuring the absolutely stunning Liberty Ross, this movie has some truly explosive moments. Not only is the lingerie utterly enticing, this video is a visual treat. Up until now, this video was exclusive to Vogue, so we are delighted to be the next in line to share it with you.

Damaris have created a really stunning new season collection that features updated variations of their signature peek-a-boo knickers, as well as introducing some amazingly sculptural shapes. The innovative eye popping brights are tempered by sophisticated, classic black options. Combinations of lace, satin, dense and sheer with linear and layering detailing all adds up to a really exciting take on how modern lingerie should look.

London Fashion Week: Streetstyle, Technicolour

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

So, to start the week, we have a colour injection to wake you up after the weekend. We’re almost through our mega post-a-thon of London Fashion Week coverage. Hope you’ve enjoyed all of the posts. We’ve had a fine time pulling them all together and deciding how best to categories all of the images.

After Friday’s post on the predicable, but still stunning selection of monochrome spotted on the global fashion crowd, we now look at the polar opposite direction. I think this was probably the most colourful LFW we have ever seen, including all for the fabulously eye popping prints we’ve posted too. We really love the ultra bright shifts and sweaters showing how to work the new season colour blocking, those brilliantly bright accessories that just added so much to an outfit, the odd colour clash and the complete exuberance that this added to our LFW experience.

London Fashion Week: Streetstyle, Colour Free

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Its no news that fashion loves black. Now are you sitting down, because I can exclusively reveal that fashion loves colour too! I know, its a shocker. Well, more of the colour on Monday. Today we focus on a non-colour statement. This is all about monochrome,  head to toe black, flashes of white and even some diversity into soft greys.

London Fashion Week‘s fashion pack showed us how to make all black look fresh with the addition of textural layering, highlight accessories, matte and gloss combinations, dense and sheer, and some eye popping geometrics and graphic effects. You see, in fashion, sweet thing, black and white is very rarely, well, black and white…
