“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” 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…

“Blink” Retail: Sunshine from Sonia Rykiel

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Yesterday was our first working day of the year and we braved the torrential rains and the gusting wind in order to start our retail research for the next set of reports. It was not the kind of weather that encourages you to think ‘Spring’ thoughts, so I was delighted when I came across the ray of sunshine that was the Sonia Rykiel store window display. Three looks in gorgeous daffodil yellow to inject some much needed Vitamin D into our system. An instant shot of Spring hope for you.
