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.

The change of venue did change quite a bit about how we experienced London Fashion Week. Somerset House provided a wonderful stage for all the fashion crowd to peacock and be snapped for posts just like this one. In Soho it was a bit of a bun-fight on Brewer Street, but a short walk away we spotted these two fashionistas grabbing a little refreshment between shows.

“Blink” Colour: We’re blushing

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

It’s a little while since we shared some pure colour inspiration with you, but we have something particularly beautiful to make up for it. From vintage shots to fresh from NYFW catwalks we have a thing for this rosey, blushy selection of colours. It has been recurring across our Pinterest feed for a while, popping up in various levels, on various fabrications, for Spring/Summer and for Autumn/Winter.

To dig a little deeper than the ‘it’s pretty and we like it’ statement, this looks like the natural progression for all of those nude/make-up shades we have all been in love with for a few seasons. Team that colour level with the strong Seventies vibe. Blend those influences with the broader feeling for redefining feminism/femininity in a wonderfully fresh and modern way. The result, we think, is this sophisticatedly female colour level.

Pantone, we salute you and your choice of marsala as the shade for 2015. Although for us the name’ marsala’ doesn’t quite give this family of reddy, peachy, fleshy tints the sensual name it deserves. For us, we think ‘nipple’ would be a better name. Or maybe ‘well snogged lip’. Or how about ‘first flush of passion’? You get our drift? These colours are damn well sexy!
