Greetings from the AW12 Press Days (part 1)

Greetings from the AW12 Press Days (part 1)

If you’re wondering why things have been a little quiet over the past few weeks, it’s because I’ve been trekking through London, from press day to press day. It’s been manic, it’s been exhausting, it’s been fun, and it’s not over yet. I’ve been to every corner of the city and I thought it was time to give you a little update of some of my highlights so far! More to come… Slightly obsessed with Pringle of Scotland’s AW12 shoes […]

Press Day Shenanigans

Press Day Shenanigans

It’s been a manic few weeks of press days, where PR’s open their doors to the press and introduce the new collections – SS12 in this case. Some of these brands I’ve already seen on the catwalk, but are great to rediscover up close and personal. I couldn’t possibly report on all the press days I’ve been to individually (I took hundreds and hundreds of snaps), so here are some highlights of some I’ve been to already.Corrie Nielsen taking a […]

Boohoo AW11 Preview

Boohoo AW11 Preview

Although Boohoo.com is still relatively new on the fashion scene, the online retailer is fast becoming one of the big players around. They’re known for their very quick adaptation to trends, and their cheap cheap prices. Ok, so it might not be haute couture, but this is fast high street at its best. Boohoo picks up on trends and transforms them into affordable and fun fashion, but you have to be quick: they never re-stock, so once a style is […]

East meets West at Thomas Sabo AW11

East meets West at Thomas Sabo AW11

German jewellery brand Thomas Sabo introduced their latest seasonal collection earlier today at posh (and yummy) Thai restaurant Bam-Bou. It seemed like somewhat an odd location until I was shown the new collection, which takes its inspiration from the Far East. Dragons, fans, little Geisha dolls and lots of cute panda’s make up a fun and cheeky Eastern collection, whilst still being through and through “Thomas Sabo”. There’s plenty of pendants, charm bracelets, rings, necklaces and even some great watches […]

Cath Kidston AW11

Cath Kidston AW11

Cath Kidston probably needs little introduction: the either-love-it-or-hate-it range of bright floral and patterned homewares, accessories and clothing has been around for almost 2 decades, and somehow it seems more popular today than ever. At the AW11 press day yesterday, the brand presented a slightly more serious collection called “Modern Heirlooms”, with its gorgeous floral and nature patterns, but in slightly darker shades than we’re used to, in a variety of bags and accessories. There was a great display called […]

Swedish Hasbeens 2.0

Swedish Hasbeens 2.0

One of the few trends I’ve never quite understood were the clogs. Massive last summer, still big this winter and hanging around this summer, this is one trend I’ll happily see the back of. So I was pretty surprised when I saw the AW11 collection for Swedish Hasbeens – probably the trendsetters for this craze – at the Varg press days: I didn’t hate them. Fresh off their much-hyped collaboration with H&M, it looks like Swedish Hasbeens have moved into […]

Dress Up at New Look AW11 Press Day

Dress Up at New Look AW11 Press Day

Last week I attended the New Look AW11 press day at the beautiful One Marylebone (THE most gorgeous venue ever…) for the second time in less than 24 hours. I had attended a star-studded party in the same venue to celebrate New Look’s new “Style The Nation” show (coming to Channel 4 in June presented by Nick Grimshaw) just hours before, but nothing could stop me from coming back for more! The AW11 collection was set up in a lot […]

Benetton / Sisley AW11

Benetton / Sisley AW11

I was definitely a Benetton-baby. As a kid I was always dressed in the brightest colours, prints and most out-there combinations. My mom had a wild sense of fashion for me, to say the least. I probably lost sight of Benneton when I reached my teens, always dressed in either my uniform or pretty simple colours. At the Benetton press day I suddenly had hundreds of flashbacks and I must admit it’s pretty fun rediscovering a label you grew up […]

Fortuna by Maria Francesca Pepe

Fortuna by Maria Francesca Pepe

Press days are a perfect time to have some much-needed one-on-one time with your beloved collections. You get to touch, wear, ogle, drool,… in fact, the only thing you don’t get to do is take it home at the end of the day. Last week I was re-introduced to Maria Francesca Pepe‘s amazing AW11 collection Fortuna at the Trace Publicity press day. I know I’ve already covered the collection quite extensively after her quite dark and sinister presentation during London […]

Chanel AW11 Press Day

Chanel AW11 Press Day

Chanel holds a very special place in my heart, you probably know that by now. In fact, very few things make me as happy as being in a room full of Chanel, so when I attended the AW11 Press Day last week, IT literally meant all play and absolutely no work for me. I’m not sure where to begin writing a review of the winter collection, because I eh… loved it all. Simple as that. For AW11, the collection is […]

Introducing… Zoe Karssen

Introducing… Zoe Karssen

Zoe Karssen is one of the many discoveries I’ve made during my press day rounds. The young Dutch label offers comfortable t-shirts and sweatshirts with slightly tongue-in-cheek slogans and imagery. They’re high in quality and smile-factor and it’s no wonder they’ve already been picked up by shops like Matches, Liberty and Net-a-Porter. The lookbook and little video made for the current collection is really great, funny and playful, and doesn’t take itself too seriously – exactly what this brand is […]

Paul Smith AW11

Paul Smith AW11

After our wonderful time with Paul Smith in his office, the man himself dropped us off at the press day which was happening in the showroom downstairs. It was a dark and dreamy set up, with both menswear, womenswear and even the kid’s collection on display. Seeing as it’s a winter collection, everything was a lot more somber and dark than we’re used to from Paul Smith, but as always there’s the occasional colour pop, from the gorgeous butterfly prints […]
