As a preview to a post that is coming up very soon, we wanted to share this lovely video with you. One of my longest standing fashion love affairs has been with the work of Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell. And if you’re an avid Blink London blog reader, you’ll know that I have a newer, and seasonally increasing fashion passion for Valentino (check our post about the recent Valentino couture collection). Imagine my excitement when I discovered that Valentino was working with Celia to create the print and pattern for their pre-Fall 2015 collection!
The collaboration has continued and Celia’s work can be seen in the Valentino collections right up to SS’16 menswear as well as Resort ’16 womenswear. Watch out for more on this on the blog in the upcoming week.
If you buy one thing to update your autumn wardrobe, make it a cape. I’m planning one in to my LFW look. There’s so many great ones to choose from, and something for every budget too, from mega statement capes and those that are just a nod to capeness.
Here’s some of our favourites spotted out and about in London over the past couple of weeks…
A clear statement of commercial intent, but also a wonderfully impactful look. We do love a bit of monochrome. Yes, sometimes fashion is black and white. Simplicity really is, more often than not, the key to chic.
Following on from yesterday’s homage to the classic ‘Little Black Dress’, today we swap the meaning of the ‘B’ and this time it stands for ‘Bright’! So, if a black dress is just a bit whatever for you, how about something with a bit more colour impact? Here are some of our favourite bold, bright looks spotted around London’s best retail addresses in the past week or so. Want to dress like a vast floral arrangement? No problem! An ice princess more your thing? We’ve got it covered. An 80’s body con attired popstrel? Look no further!

Add a little sparkle into your life with these babies. Yes, its more from our Autumn ‘Accessories’ report today, and we have decided to feature metallic and metal trimmed looks. This is a really strong direction, and one that has been developing for some time. Starting with all of those studded bags and now diversified right through the whole accessories offer. Its ‘bling’, but in a very cool and sophisticated new way. From some very subtle, low sheen looks to full on, bold statement pieces. Whether its a small touch of sparkle, or a totally smothered twinkle-fest, there’s some fabulous options to appeal to the magpie in you.
More accessories tomorrow? Well, we do have about 400 shots in the Autumn report to choose from, so why not! If you’d like to see more from our brilliantly inspirational and informative reports, then why not have a click here. Enjoy!
