Autumn Winter 2019 Fashion Trends

Autumn Winter 2019 Fashion Trends

As we near the end of summer, it’s that time when we start thinking about the arrival of the new season and inevitably our wardrobe. Today we’re highlighting some of the most exciting fashion trends for the Autumn/ Winter 2019 period so you’ll be ready and in the know once the season begins! 1. Utilitywear Yes , it is back again! Utility wear is one of those trends that comes back again and again. It is reminder that you can never go wrong with some utility inspired clothing in your wardrobe. For the coming season, try the trend in a neutral palette such as head to toe tones of brown and beige or go for the statement utility wear jacket or coat that you will last for years to come.     2. Floral Noir Florals, a summer favourite, have been appropriated for the colder months this season. All florals will be big this coming season, but unlike summer flowers, the trend leans towards a brooding, romantic style- think deepest-red roses stumbled upon in a forgotten garden in the dead of night. We love this trend as there is lots of room to transition from the summer months. 3. Neon Brights ...

Style icons through the decades

Style icons through the decades

Over the years, there have been a few key female figures who have firmly held the title- style icon. These women were true trailblazers in fashion during their times, setting trends and creating movements. The true marker of a style icon is their lasting inspiration to women of all ages and periods. We have selected a few of our favourite style icons over the decades. Katherine Hepburn 1930s An actress who shunned the press in favour of staying out of the spotlight, Katherine Hepburn was the original wearer of androgynous clothing. While her peers wore sequins, curve hugging clothing, Hepburn chose wide leg trousers and loose, crisp shirts. Her style was one of comfort and practicality and fashion houses followed her embrace of traditional menswear with designs for the modern woman. Her style is still referenced year on year on fashion catwalks around the world. Ava Gardner 1940s An actress renowned for her beauty, Ava Gardner lit up television screens effortlessly. She was famous for making the neckerchief popular as well as the belted waist for a cinched in look. Her style was all about the glamour of Hollywood and her dresses and love of blue hues were immortalised in fashion history. ...

Your Fashion & Interiors Style

Your Fashion & Interiors Style

There is so much inspiration to be found for home decoration when browsing online.  The problem is, how do you decide what style to go with for your home?  To make the process of beautifying home interiors in a style reflective of who we are and what we want to express, we’ve turned to fashion. Style is such a personal thing. It doesn’t always follow trends (although it can definitely be influenced by it) and it doesn’t always make sense to others. There are many parallels between how one’s sense of fashion can inform choices for interior design. Both are hugely influenced by what you are drawn to in daily life and both take on board the function, mood, colour and a balance of proportion and details. So whether you’re a home decor veteran or someone just starting on an exploration of taste and style, here are our 3 tips on how to draw from your fashion style to truly express yourself at home.   1. Think about your lifestyle and personality Do you prefer to be dressed in a comfortable and relaxed way or do you usually prefer to dress up and be more pulled together? Are you an extrovert – happy to be the ...

A history of Tennis Fashion

A history of Tennis Fashion

Since 1877, Wimbledon Tennis has been one of the most recognised tennis championships, hosting hundreds of royals, celebrities, and visitors from around the world and playing a central role in the foundation of many famous tennis careers. As far back as the nineteenth century, the accepted tennis outfit for players were plain white, long-sleeved shirts and trousers for men and full-length corseted white dresses and hats for women. It was not until the 1920s and 1930s that the players, (particularly the female players), began to experiment with their clothing. Shorter skirts, shorts and sleeveless tops were all introduced, some more daring than others, to provide ease of movement and an expression of individual personality and style. While tennis style evolved to be practical and comfortable this was never at the expense of fashion. High-profile athletes like Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova found their own ways to have fun with their outfits, (think tennis dresses made of lace and even denim) and often attract as much attention for what they wear as their backhands. Tennis outfits have often inspired the masses too, like the white V-neck sweater used by Bill Tilden, still today remaining a classic staple in men’s fashion. Advances ...

Behind the seams | Autumn Winter ’17

Behind the seams | Autumn Winter ’17

Our autumn collection is inspired by the Japanese view of life, in particular the art of Wabi Sabi. Through embracing a simple, uncluttered aesthetic, we’ve concentrated on paring back inessentials and finding beauty in imperfections. We are abandoning the perfect and celebrating authentic craftsmanship whilst appreciating the beauty of natural objects. The Wabi Sabi way of life favours authenticity over perfection and the natural and organic over clinical and symmetrical. This appreciation of fragile and incomplete things that do not adhere to our preconceived idea of beauty is something that is at the forefront of  our designs in this collection.   In the first part of the season  we have created pieces with raw edged seams, asymmetric and unfinished hems. Layered textures and unique silhouettes are supported by a palette of blush and natural tones of dusty pink and stone.   Towards the end of the season, there is a harmony between nature and design with a palette of rich tones of forest green and deep charcoal. Intarsia prints in scattered designs inspired by Raku ceramics give character, touch and feel. Keep tuned for our new season styles, coming soon! Shop our summer collection here.
