“Blink” Retail: Fashion Prozac, part 2

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

The other collection that has caught my eye from all of the great Resort and early Spring drops, is the fabulously fluorescent Christopher Kane collection. Loving his work with J Brand too. This is another collection that fills me with joy, just like the Stella looks we shared with you a little earlier. I think it’s to do with the energy packed in to the pattern and colour combinations. The shapes are graphically simple, allowing the focal point to the be the surface detail, be that the eye popping solid shades or the wonderful rainbow hued print and pattern. The high sheen silver additions add a whole new level of excitement too.

“Blink” Retail: Fashion Prozac, part 1

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

There are two collections out there right now that, for me, are just like rays of fashion sunshine. Let me share them with you one by one, just to stretch the uplifting effects out a bit.

Firstly lets look at Stella‘s amazing resort collection. I do also love what’s to come when the Spring proper collection drops in fully, but until that point my fantasy shopping list is stuffed with these influential and inspirational looks. Loving the reflected style of the print. Adoring the colour and pattern combinations. I want to actually disappear into that palm fringed scene, but in lieu of that, slipping one of these looks on would do very nicely.

“Blink” Retail: LBD’s, but the ‘B’ stands for bright!

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

Following on from yesterday’s homage to the classic ‘Little Black Dress’, today we swap the meaning of the ‘B’ and this time it stands for ‘Bright’! So, if a black dress is just a bit whatever for you, how about something with a bit more colour impact? Here are some of our favourite bold, bright looks spotted around London’s best retail addresses in the past week or so. Want to dress like a vast floral arrangement? No problem! An ice princess more your thing? We’ve got it covered. An 80’s body con attired popstrel? Look no further!

“Blink” reports- ‘The Overview’

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Here’s your bonus post to finish off a week of showcasing our beautiful and brilliant reports (yes, these are my words, but I’m sure you’ll all agree). For the past few days, and earlier today, we have shared with you some highlights from our product focused womenswear retail reports. Here we have a look at our biggest report, running at 110 gorgeously glossy pages. This report is the most recent addition to our offer, and contains highlights from all of our other reports. Its the perfect tool for brand managers, retailers, designs, buyers and manufacturers who deal with multiple product types.

If you’d like to know more about our reports and consultancy services, why not have a look here and either contact us directly or get in touch with your nearest agent. We’re looking forward to hearing from you. Enjoy!

“Blink” reports- ‘Denim’

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Thanks goodness it’s Friday. And to add to your reasons to be joyful, we have not one but two posts for you today. I know! We’ll start with ‘Denim’ just to round up our posts on our category specific reports for the week. You’ve already been treated to jersey, knit, soft wovens and print. You may have noticed that the format is pretty much the same through the reports, but it isn’t identical. Each report subject has its idiosyncratic moments, just to ensure that particular product type or subject is presented at its absolute best.

The ‘Denim’ report definitely has its own approach. There are no colour palettes in here, but we do run a few pages that highlight particular stories within the denim and casual wovens category, whether its about colour, pattern, treatments or trims. There are lots of close ups and cut outs though this report ensuring that you see all of the detail that goes in to making a style particular to a brand, and inspiring you to come up with new approaches to your own denim personality.

As with the other reports we have previewed this week, we have a few key pages from the report for you in this post. In total, this particular edition ran at over 45 pages, so there’s lots more for you to see. If you’re interested in checking this out, or seeing the full editions of any of our reports, why not have a look here for our contact details, or those of your nearest agent. Enjoy!

Streetstyle: Carnaby Street

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Although its become a tourist trap and the location of some pretty mainstream retailers, there is still something essentially cool about Carnaby Street. Its often a great place to style spot very unique and interesting looks. Maybe this is because it’s close to lots of Soho creative offices and the fact that it’s right by Liberty? Who knows- but the fact is, we like to loiter with our camera at the ready and we generally manage to shoot some interesting streetstyle.

Asta spotted this young lady when out last week. We just love how on first look there is something quite vintage and refined, then on closer inspection her style owes a lot more to a punky and hard edged aesthetic. The vintage jacket has been customized by some hardcore looking studs and spikes. The shorts are leather and the shoes are pretty fierce too. Great hair and a very cool attitude just puts the cherry on this particular cake. Enjoy!
