“Blink” Retail: Forever 21 and Charlotte Brontë

Forever 21

Who knew that Forever 21 had the heart of a poet and philosopher? A rather lovely quote from Miss Charlotte Bronte on a very cute Summer look. I’m quite sure that Bronte never envisioned her words ending up being represented in this way, but we like it never the less. Wise words indeed…

“Blink” Reports: Introducing Menswear

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

We’re very excited about our new monthly report title. Yes. we have entered the world of menswear!

By popular demand, we have added a monthly retail report featuring over 150 images per month, covering all aspects of trend-driven men’s fashion from ultra formal to super casual, plus all the accompanying key accessories too. The majority of our business is still very much womenswear focused, but this really adds a new level of interest, excitement and diversity to the information that we are collating, reviewing and analyzing.

Here’s a snapshot of the most recent colour review that we published, from the May’13 report. We really love this pink toned palette for menswear. It’s actually really pretty close the the prevailing colour trend in this month’s womenswear too.

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

We hope that you liked our knitwear design inspiration. Next is an insight into the original design work that can be found in our Soft Wovens report. If you’re not familiar with that term, ‘soft wovens’ are essentially formal or dressy styles in woven materials that are softly structured, but not as constructed as tailoring would be. So now you know!

“Blink” Retail: Joseph x Peter Pilotto

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

So it seems I have one more thing in common with Joseph than I realized. Not only are we both innately chic, super stylish and cutting edge (ahem, well if I believe it hard enough it might come true…), we both also have a huge pash on Peter Pilotto. I haven’t covered the front of “Blink” Towers in a blown up version of the current season PP print like Joseph has, but I’m just more subtle with my crushes I guess.

“Blink” New Designers: Stine Riis, SS’13 at CFW

Friday, August 17th, 2012

Following on from that earlier post, we are having a Stine Riis afternoon to round off our first week of Copenhagen Fashion Week coverage. Here are some shots from Stine’s SS’13 show. She has further developed her refined, modern aesthetic taking the concepts from the AW’12 collection in a slightly softer, sportier direction. We really love Stine’s signature textile combinations and clever colour use.
