“Blink” Retail: Leather + Studs = Fashion Joy!

So, we have already featured lots of great black leather and leather inspired looks this morning. This afternoon, we look at another leather based look, and this one takes things a little tougher…

The favourite option for instantly updating the leather jacket seems to be smothering it in a generous scattering of studs. The more the better! Looking like a great way to drive the now core Biker style forward, but we have also been loving studs on denim and plaid shirts, denim shorts, camo jackets and of course, accessories.

“Blink” Retail: Brilliant Black Leather

After many, many season’s in the fashion doldrums, black leather and leather inspired looks are now super hot again. Brought back into our style consciousness through the brilliant Biker jacket, and now diversifying into great dresses, skirts, shorts and even the (gulp) leather trouser is looking very, very good again. Here’s some of our favourites shot at retail over the past month or so. From high end to high street, fashion is showing leather a lot of love!

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

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.

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

After ‘Metallics’ and ‘Gothic’, last night at Westfield London, we spotted a couple of great ‘Print’ looks, working a strongly digital, graphic, photo realistic or linear feel. Many of the new crop of brilliant London based Designers have a very strongly print driven handwriting, so it’s great to see this translating in to streetstyle.

So, after our look at metallics at Westfield London, in celebration of their Fashion Weekend event, we now move on to the next trend that’s looking very strong for Autumn, and that is ‘Gothic’. Featuring lots of leather, black on black, studs, fur, lace and a slightly punk attitude. Thanks again to everyone who stopped for us to shoot them and to all the stores that got involved.

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

Last night Westfield London celebrating Vogue’s annual shopping extravaganza, Fashion’s Night Out by throwing its biggest fashion party all in the name of Autumn Winter style, starring mother and daughter model duo Yasmin and Amber Le Bon and Lizzy Jagger in front of a VIP front row. Brands showcasing on the runway include Hugo Boss, Urban Outfitters, House of Fraser and Zara.

This was a spectacular beginning to a 3 day event at Westfield London as the Autumn Winter ’12 fashion season kicks off there in earnest with a wonderful ‘Fashion Weekend’ of further promotions, discounts, freebies and treats.

Westfield’s fashion team have reviewed the AW’12 collections and come up with a few key trends, all of which were featured on the FNO catwalk. For the ladies they have identified ‘Gothic’, ‘Digital Prints’, ‘Metallics’, ‘Burnt Orange’, ‘Gold and Brocade’ as the key looks to rock for Autumn. For the fellas we have the ‘Mr Dandy’ look. Westfield asked me to search out some of these looks being worn by the wonderfully fashion conscious crowd at Westfield last night. Thanks to all of you who stopped for us. Thanks also to the Westfield team, Propellornet, Yellow Door, Urban Outfitters, Topshop, Reiss and COS.

So, starting with the hottest trend we spotted last night, metallics, featuring lots of lovely sequins, metallic finishes and great sparkly accessories…
