“Blink” Retail: Marvellous Miu Miu

The ‘ladylike’ thing seems to be a bit of a theme for “Blink” this week. I’m not quite sure why, but suddenly a little lace glove and a head scarf seems quite the thing to be indulging in right now. Perhaps it’s the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee having an effect, or a hang over from last year’s Royal Wedding? Whatever it is, Miu Miu have created a rather charming look that’s absolutely Buckingham Palace perfection.

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.

Accessories: Metallic

Add a little sparkle into your life with these babies. Yes, its more from our Autumn ‘Accessories’ report today, and we have decided to feature metallic and metal trimmed looks. This is a really strong direction, and one that has been developing for some time. Starting with all of those studded bags and now diversified right through the whole accessories offer. Its ‘bling’, but in a very cool and sophisticated new way. From some very subtle, low sheen looks to full on, bold statement pieces. Whether its a small touch of sparkle, or a totally smothered twinkle-fest, there’s some fabulous options to appeal to the magpie in you.

More accessories tomorrow? Well, we do have about 400 shots in the Autumn report to choose from, so why not! If you’d like to see more from our brilliantly inspirational and informative reports, then why not have a click here. Enjoy!

Another furry focused post- not that we’re obsessed or anything!

Shaggy seems to be a key descriptive for the new Autumn product. Its a great new way to look at volume and proportion. It’s ultra light and super soft. Li Edelkoort incited us all to “dress like clouds’. Well, I vote we go one better and dress like a pom pom instead.
