“Blink” New Designers: Avenue 32 introduces

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

What we love about Avenue 32 is that its a fashion website that really puts emphasis on promoting new, young, innovative international emerging design talent, alongside all of those established brands that we all love to have in our (walk in) wardrobe.

This British company seems to constantly have it’s finger on the pulse of what’s about to hit the fashion public’s consciousness. It’s a great place to hit up when you’re after something new, exciting and different. If you’d like to see Avenue 32’s full portfolio of featured labels, take a look here.

We have the pleasure of being able to share with you some of this season’s new talent via these lovely mini biographies from the Avenue 32 team. Charlie Brear and Varley are both available on the site.

These other label’s are brands that they think we should all keep an eye out for in the upcoming season as they build their presence in the fashion industry, and who knows, perhaps they’ll be lucky enough to be featured on Avenue 32 very soon.

“Blink” Accessories: Cutler and Gross, SS’14

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

Today is the Spring Equinox. The season change is official and as far as we’re concerned, there’s a very specific way of celebrating that. Yup, it’s time to invest in some fresh shades!

If you’re after style and substance (great design, quality craftsmanship, all sorts of UV protection) then there is only one label to hit as far as we’re concerned; Cutler and Gross.  It’s kind of like once you’ve flown first class, anything else just seems a dreadful compromise. Well, so it is with a pair of Cutler and Gross shades.

The new season collection is inspired by the ‘English Garden Party’ and there are some gorgeous new shapes and some wonderful new colours too, including some fabulous new mirrored lens tints.  The women’s frames are rather glamorous and the men’s are more relaxed for an effortlessly stylish look. Here are some of our favourites.

You can take a look at the whole collection on Cutler and Gross site, or see a great selection on Avenue 32. Obviously if you want to get the full experience you should pop into their Knightsbridge store where you may well bump into a superstar or two, including Rihanna who appears to be a fan, choosing to wear C&G shades to the AW’14 Chanel show.

“Blink” Retail: Escape with Heidi Klein

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

Hands up who needs a holiday? All the hands in Blink Towers are now pointing skywards… It’s that time of year when we all yearn to be laying down somewhere sun-baked, away from the ‘Is it? Isn’t it?’ Spring weather. Well, in mental prep for that here’s some highlights form the new Heidi Klein collection. The Spring Summer ’14 offer is inspired by a selection of desirable destinations, each bringing with it a different mood, look and detail for you to be tempted by. From Seville to Rio to Jaipur, this is a veritable global tour of glamourous swimwear and beach cover-ups.

We asked Heidi about the inspiration behind this collection, and she told us this:

“My inspiration for each collection comes from the customers themselves, what they want, what they don’t want, etc.  Our customers in the 2 stores are our best focus groups and so we always listen to them. I also take inspiration from my holidays with family and friends, and also from the gorgeous places I have yet to visit.  There are such exquisite destinations around the world, and each of us has our own favourites that we return to time after time.  I try to bring those places alive with each story in the collection.”

“Blink” Retail: Christmas Wishes

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012

It’s that time of year again… almost! Now, what did that special person in your life hint that they wanted to find under the tree? No idea? Too much mulled wine in your system to remember clearly? Or perhaps you’ve been too distracted by self gifting when you should have been picking up pressies for your friends and family?

Well, what I’ve been subliminally seeding for that past month or so is the fact that pretty much all that I’d like for Christmas can be found at Avenue 32. This is one of my new favourite super stylish shopping sites. These guys carry some really innovative and interesting names that you might not see on other luxe shopping sites. Each designer gets to create their own boutique style space so you can get a really good feel for what they are all about.

Here’s a little peek at a couple of the brands I have got my eye on, by way of a wee wish list. I’m really into the gorgeous accessories from Bex Rox at Avenue 32. Have a look at the whole collection here. Aside from accessories, my other favourite treat is always posh undies, and Myla never disappoints. You can see the whole collection here. Both brilliant British brands, which is an additional bonus.

Soooo, here goes with my top 6 picks- you know, just in case you’re wondering what I’d like for Christmas, and I have a been a very good girl (mostly).
