“Blink” Streetstyle: Westfield Celebrates FNO and AW’12

Last night Westfield London celebrating Vogue’s annual shopping extravaganza, Fashion’s Night Out by throwing its biggest fashion party all in the name of Autumn Winter style, starring mother and daughter model duo Yasmin and Amber Le Bon and Lizzy Jagger in front of a VIP front row. Brands showcasing on the runway include Hugo Boss, Urban Outfitters, House of Fraser and Zara.

This was a spectacular beginning to a 3 day event at Westfield London as the Autumn Winter ’12 fashion season kicks off there in earnest with a wonderful ‘Fashion Weekend’ of further promotions, discounts, freebies and treats.

Westfield’s fashion team have reviewed the AW’12 collections and come up with a few key trends, all of which were featured on the FNO catwalk. For the ladies they have identified ‘Gothic’, ‘Digital Prints’, ‘Metallics’, ‘Burnt Orange’, ‘Gold and Brocade’ as the key looks to rock for Autumn. For the fellas we have the ‘Mr Dandy’ look. Westfield asked me to search out some of these looks being worn by the wonderfully fashion conscious crowd at Westfield last night. Thanks to all of you who stopped for us. Thanks also to the Westfield team, Propellornet, Yellow Door, Urban Outfitters, Topshop, Reiss and COS.

So, starting with the hottest trend we spotted last night, metallics, featuring lots of lovely sequins, metallic finishes and great sparkly accessories…

Friday Fun- Boy, Oh Boy!

A very quick post for you before we dash out and head off to London Fashion Week at Somerset House.

I spotted this at Urban Outfitters, and I just had to share with you. Boy London seems to be back! This was THE brand to be seen in if you were a fashion mover and shaker in the late 80’s, in the mix with anything from Demob, Bodymap, oh and Chelsea Girl was a personal favourite of mine. I regularly headed out to the local nightspot wearing a Hunza swimsuit with a Boy London jersey rah rah skirt hoiked on over the top. Its a miracle I didn’t catch pneumonia really!

The aviator was big news then too, but hottest was a satin version inspired by the MA1– ideally a cropped variation on that theme. What goes around and comes around! The saying goes ‘If you wore it the first time around, don’t wear it again’ and I think in the case of Boy and the Aviator, I’m seriously tempted!
