“Blink” Events: House of Hackney SS’15 at The Communications Store’s SS’15 Press Day

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

The first time that I walked into the House of Hackney shop, I nearly fainted from an overwhelming sense of joy. Okay, that may be a slight overstatement but there was definitely a minute where I couldn’t catch my breath (you can read more about that first visit here). If you haven’t been in then get yourself to Shoreditch High Street and prepare yourself for a highly patterned, highly fabulous retail experience.

The shot here is of a mini version of the House of Hackney experience via The Communications Store‘s press day. The SS’15 collection was displayed along with a couple of their interiors pieces, just to help set the scene.

The new collection features some brilliant new print designs shown as standalone statements as well as in some wonderful combinations. From skins to florals and botanical inspired leaves, the scale and colourways are as bold and vivid as we have come to expect and love from this genius British brand.

To top it all off, and to pull the whole mood together were these stunningly 70’s platforms. Get buckled up on to my feet now you beauties.

“Blink” New Designers: Richard Braqo

Friday, April 19th, 2013

We always find such incredible and exciting new accessory brads at London Fashion Week‘s Somerset House exhibition. As shoes are a particular weakness of mine, I was delighted to spot these rather gorgeous heels from Richard Braqo.

A graduate of Parsons in NYC, Braqo is producing his rather seductive footwear in the very best factories in Italy. He has previously collaborated on a sell out collection with Cesare Paciotti, as well as working with Acne Studios and Helmut Lang. His own label collection features super luxurious fabrications, stunning attention to detail and a subtle yet undeniably sexy handwriting.

“Blink” Retail: Browns get Curious

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Browns have teamed up with Thomas Erber, art director and fashion consultant, to stage a wonderous ‘Cabinet de Curiosities‘ in their South Molton Street store. Featuring the work of around 30 artists and designers, all who have a relationship with this illustrious store, this is a real treasure trove of inspiration, exclusivity and true luxury.

We spotted the work of Manolo Blahnik in the window of Browns, which is part of the ‘Cabinet’. This is the ‘Albero’ shoe. If you’re a size 4 and have £3,850.00 to spare, then you’re in luck! If that’s not your size, you could still go for the sketch by Manolo himself, which is a snip at £4,480.00!

The exhibition closes on 23rd December so do pop in soon if you don’t want to miss it. And if you’re feeling particularly flush, you can even make a purchase, and 10% of the proceeds go to Namibian charities concerned with conservation & community.

Accessories: We love Louboutin!

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

We were so delighted when into our inbox popped an invitation from the lovely ladies at Christian Louboutin. We were invited to the SS’11 press day and nothing would have held us back from those pristine new season red soles!

We were allowed to take pictures on one of the rooms, and below are some of our favourite styles. The ‘Dombasle’ is named after the beautiful french actress Arielle Dombasle. The ‘Eco Trash’ shoe has been constructed from recycled Louboutin office trash. We love the ‘Americano’ hightops. Trainers have never been so sexy!

Bold, bright colour and mixed materials are key statements for SS’11, and don’t relegate your studs and tassels just yet. They are still looking super hot in the new season Louboutin collection. Oh, and just in case you were looking forward to a season off from aching tootsies, forget about it. These babies are still sky high!
