We’re Back, We’re Backless

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

If you’re following Blink London on insta then you’ll know I am holidaying in Bali right now. More to come on that- but what my hols also means is that I have had a minute to get stuck back in to my badly ignored blog. No excuses, but things have been pretty darn fabulously hectic at Blink Towers for the past few months. I have not been practicing what I preach about making sure you set aside a regular time slot to keep your blog posts rolling and for that I am sorry (not sorry cos there’s been amazing stuff afoot!).

Well, taking an evening out from my holiday to indulge in my passion for fashion, beauty and lifestyle, at my trusty laptop, cocktail by my side, surf crashing just beyond the open french doors is no great hardship- and I promise to keep the flow of news, excitement, information and inspiration flowing again!

I am getting my blogging groove back on with a focus on beautiful back views, and not just for the wonderfully appropriate post title opportunity. As a designer I have found myself taking more interest in back details of garments than the fronts recently, and more specifically split, slashed and open, plunging backs. I wanted to share some great inspirational images with you, all swiped from Pinterest with hugest love, thanks and appreciation.

The open back has been getting lost of catwalk love in recent shows, is a great streetstyle looks (backwards shirts are part of this too) as well as spotted in exquisite vintage styles. Here are some of my favourites for you to enjoy, and for more just hit up Blink London on Pinterest.
