“Blink” New Designers: Sister by Sibling, SS’13

We have held on to a few shots from LFW, to drop them in when we need a bit of a ray of sunshine, as well as when it feels like it’s kind of the right time to share. Well, it may seem like mid Winter in the real world, but as far as fashion is concerned, it’s Spring already and has been for some time. From what we saw at London Fashion Week, as well as letching at all the wonderful show coverage from sites like Style.com, SS’13 is looking to be an exciting, optimistic and colourful season with some tongue in cheek fun thrown in- especially from some of the newer names in the British fashion world.

A perfect example of this wonderful British sense of fun and fabulousness is the Sister by Sibling team who’s collection focuses on some really great knitwear. To top off the ‘Toile de Jouy’ printed looks, floral, fringed, skull and strip knit designs they created the most amazing, mega scale ‘afro puff’ style, double pom pom topped hats. That is an ear to ear grin distilled in to millinery if ever I saw it.

Accessories: Go Wild!

To round up our week of highlights from our Autumn ‘Accessories’ report, today we go a little wild. Its all about animal inspired looks, from skins to skin prints, full on fur to real reptiles. We were anticipating an explosion of snakes across the fashion world after Chloe’s stunning snakeskin printed Autumn ’11 show, but the leopard spot is still holding its own after being a  firm fixture for season upon season.

There’s lots of real fur out there too, some of which we have featured already in our first look at Autumn- check out the post here. We have added a couple more looks in with this selection. If you suffer from chilly kidneys, Miu Miu has the tres chic answer, and it seems that YSL is the first stop if you are after a fur balaclava… As usual, we’ll stress that we are not at all supportive of real fur and these would look even better if they were faux.
