“Blink” Inspiration: Fringe Benefits

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

It really isn’t that long since we had the last fringe trimmed moment. Well, it seems we’re not ready to forgo our fringe benefits this Spring. I for one am delighted as I’ve been forced to grow out my actual fringe by my very forceful hairdresser, Oliver Woods. I will indulge my fringe love by enjoying these beauties…

“Blink” Accessories: Old school kicks at Prada

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

When I say ‘old school’ I really do mean that literally. We spotted these Prada kicks and were transported back in time when the most sophisticated ‘trainers’ we owned were plimsolls bought from Woolworths and pretty much guaranteed to last a term at school, but not much longer. It’s that laced up, cloth upper combined with the rubber sole. Fast forward from school gym class (oh my, what were those mini kilts and gym knickers all about!?!) to my first job in fashion. I worked at Whistles and it was my job one season to call in colour samples from Bensimon, the venerable French home of the tennis shoe. Well, I think Prada was quite inspired by those, probably a bit more than they were inspired by me in my school gym kit…

Love them or loath them, as they’re Prada’s creation you will most probably be wearing a variation on this theme sometime soon. Mini kilt and gym knickers optional.

“Blink” Accessories: Prada takes a Trip

Friday, December 13th, 2013

I have never fancied a cruise, but then I spotted this absolutely gob-smackingly stunning, trunk style luggage from Prada and I am ready to book my cabin on the next ship out of here.

Prada started out as a luggage business so this is a glorious homage to their roots, and this is traditionally ‘Cruise’ season so they have doubly doffed their cap to the brand’s history. Now, where’s a porter when you need one?

“Blink” Inspiration: Prada Autumn Winter 2012

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

We don’t know what it means, but it’s Prada so that’s quite normal. What we do know is that it’s stunningly lovely. I’m particularly enamored with that eye make up…

“Blink” Accessories: Mini Bags

Friday, May 25th, 2012

To round up a couple of days worth of accessories indulgence we look at the trend for weeny bags. Not the most practical, but still a very elegant look. In our streetsyle shot of Susie Bubble, from LFW, you can see she’s opted for a second, more functional bag along with her super sweet, colour blocked, mini bag. That’s probably the reality of this accessories option, unless you are super disciplined and minimal- or have a boyf with big pockets…

“Blink” Retail: Primark does Catwalk

Monday, March 5th, 2012

I was out doing a bit of retail researching on Friday when I was tempted in to Primark by these two looks, straying frighteningly close to the original inspiration. To be honest the prints may be close, but the cuts, silhouettes, base cloths and execution are far from inspirational- but what do you expect for these bargain prices!?

“Blink” Accessories: Prada goes Soft

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

We just had to share this with you, spotted in the window of Prada yesterday. This wee fella is teeny tiny, yet still she’s packing a rather impressively large style punch, heavily accessorized with some of Prada’s finest jewels as well as those saucy fishnets…

“Blink” Colour Palettes: Spring Sorbets from Prada

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

We spotted these looks from Prada‘s pre-Spring collection in their Bond Street windows just the other day. How gorgeous that colour palette? Well, its so gorgeous we had to have a go at pantone matching it for you. Our first colour palette post for some time, but worth the wait, wouldn’t you agree?

We then spotted the same gorgeous cardigan on the amazing Lana del Rey in the forth issue of Wonderland magazine. Looking good, Lana.

“Blink” Accessories: Beautious Bijoux

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

If you’re wondering what to get for me for Valentines Day, you could do worse than wrapping me up either of these sumptuous jewellery options. Okay, if you’re considering your Christmas credit card bills, then I suggest the Lanvin pendant (its available on Net-a-Porter), but if you’re in a budget busting mood and beguiled by how very delighted I will be, then feel free to go for this ever so plush presentation box from Prada. Wowsers!

“Blink” Retail: LBD’s

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

As it’s party season, we’re being utterly spoilt by some stunning frocks out on the high street right now. The classic choice is, of course, the little black dress, and here are some of our favourites. From high end to mass market, this has got to be the fashion equivalent of a ‘sure thing’. These don’t look faddy, but they are all fashion relevant. Tempting enough to make you feel like you would really be missing out if you didn’t make a purchase, but with the longevity to be one of those things you could pull out of your wardrobe for season’s to come without feeling too out of step with the fashion moment.
