Fashion Sunday

Women in business. It’s a hot, hot topic at the moment, and rightly so – thanks to the Emma Watsons, Caitlin Morans and Lena Dunhams of our generation, the issue of the female gender in the workplace has become a headline issue. Particularly women and entrepreneurship; women reportedly make up less than a third of those in self employment (link), but this recent article on Forbes.com suggests that companies spearheaded... ...READ MORE

When Fall, falls too quickly.

Holy Mother of Missoni, what the hell happened to the weather? Ok, I know meteorology chat is rather dull but seriously, one minute I was cycling around Stockholm in little more than my denim cut-offs and now I'm cocooning myself in swathes of fabric like the little matchstick girl, and Hell I didn't even get to wear half of my Topman short-sleeved summer shirts yet! Is this really it? Are... ...READ MORE

Jonathan Saunders SS15 and Resort

A quiet romanticism descended upon the warehouse space above The Old Sorting Office where earlier during Day 1 of London Collections: Men we heard pulsating music for the likes of Topman Design. Jonathan Saunders needs no fanfare, his golden touch is applied with a subtlety that best suits an intimate presentation setting where attendees can admire his attention to detail and intricate graphic prints. Saunders showcased his SS15 menswear collection... ...READ MORE

GANT Rugger announces Womenswear launch

It is no secret that I am a big fan of menswear label GANT Rugger. The hip, younger brother to GANT combines American sportswear, East Coast prep, and Scandi cool to create a wardrobe that never fails to impress. Real (cool) people are at the heart of this brand, referencing fine food and even finer living as much of their inspiration for collections. I've been buying their XS sweaters and... ...READ MORE

Pairing your Midi with your Menswear

This season is all about the midi length skirt. Girls of the world can rejoice - the thigh baring mini has been replaced with a more modest cut - hoorah! But truth be told the midi is a tricky length to master. If, like yours truly you are not gifted with height, the bisection of your shins can make you look a bit like a troll (an on-trend troll, but... ...READ MORE

Sea NY

Be still my heart, I am totally and utterly besotted with this duffle-coat-come-suit-jacket and matching shorts by Sea NY. A key look from the brand's Resort collection, its got a distinct boho feel to it, without shying away from the classic, New York vibe for which the brand is known. The duo behind Sea NY design all of their own prints, so there's always a unique feel to each of their pieces. The... ...READ MORE

Sara Weston of Eastie Empire

I stumbled across Eastie Empire, when a friend of mine sent me an image of an impeccably dressed lady with the lines "You will love this". She was right, love I did. Said photograph was of Eastie Empire founder Sara Weston wearing pieces from the brands recently launched womenswear collection. Originally a menswear brand specialising in tailoring, Eastie Empire expanded into womenswear as a result of a female clientele buying from... ...READ MORE

Comme des Garçons Comme des Garçons AW14 #PFW

You will have most likely seen the Medusa like woolen constructions of Rei Kawakubo's AW14 MONSTER collection for Comme des Garçons, but perhaps have yet to glimpse the more wearable garments of the fashion houses Comme Comme line. Showing to an intimate audience at Paris Fashion Week, this was a show that shied away from PR frenzy in favour of presenting exclusively to buyers and a handful of photographers and... ...READ MORE

Oliver Spencer: Boys clothes for girls.

AW13 saw everyman label Oliver Spencer expand into the realms of women's fashion. To be honest "fashion" doesn't really sum-up what Oliver Spencer is all about. Like fellow-British brands Albam and YMC, Oliver Spencer rejects passing fads and trends in favour of quality fabrics in wearable cuts. As a consequence, he has fast become the go-to label for the modern man (and now woman too) who seeks easy to wear clothing... ...READ MORE

London Fashion Week: The Presentations

As promised, here are a few of my shots from the London Fashion Week presentations I managed to get to. I love a runway show, but there is something special about getting to interact with the models and get right up close to the collections. MARKUS LUPFER When I walked into Markus Lupfer my first reaction was "what happened to all the sequins?" With lashings of sparkle adorning the likes... ...READ MORE

Which British Fashion Couple are you?

There's something very special about viewing a designer's menswear collection, and then soon after seeing what they have up their sleeves for the ladies. London Collections Men has given a fantastic platform for menswear, but as London Fashion Week draws to a close I find myself wishing I could see both the men and women take to the catwalk together (just once) for a complete look at the designer's visions. At... ...READ MORE

MSGM: Contemporary Italian fashion

Born in 2009, MSGM is the hottest contemporary brand to come out of Milan - think hip, youthful, full of colour, texture, stripes and prints. The brand has had a good year, it showed at Milan Fashion Week for the first time, opened its first store in their native fashion capital and have just been bought in by net-a-porter (they were already stocked at mytheresa, yoox and luisaviaroma) . Founder, Rimini-born Giorgetti,... ...READ MORE

Leading fashion up the garden path

In light of the Fashion and Gardens exhibition that opened its doors on the 7th of February at the Garden Museum, London, and the first spotting of a snowbell here in Stockholm (without much snow at all really this winter), I give you my roundup of the best flowery pieces arriving in store for this Spring/Summer. From let to right: Zara men's poplin shirt with embroidery, Christopher Kane printed cotton... ...READ MORE

If only…

...I looked like this in my joggers, hey? Styled for Vogue Spain's February issue by Marina Gallo, Stina Rapp Wastenson looks effortless in this laid-back look. Monochrome sportswear, loose-fitting fabrics and exciting proportions make this an ultra stylish outfit. Who would have said that a comb over, joggers and Jesus sandals would channel such a rock 'n' roll vibe!?!

Copenhagen Fashion Week AW14 Highlights

As I am now a Stockholm resident, it only seemed right that I did a post on each show I made it to during their Fashion Week. I actually had to cut my Stockholm Fashion Week diary short by a day as neighbouring Copenhagen Fashion Week overlapped with it. In between work, I managed to get to a few of the shows in my free time. Here is my roundup... ...READ MORE

Whistles, Joseph and now Hunter – oh my!

As the countdown begins to London Fashion Week, I've written a few posts about the new commercial brands set to debut for AW14. Both Joseph and Whistles have joined the catwalk calendar, hoping to garner the same success as Topshop Unique has had on the runway, but perhaps the most surprising addition to the official schedule is Hunter Original, the Scottish wellington boot manufacturer. From Sao Paolo to Tokyo, when... ...READ MORE

BACK with a bang!

  My first show of Stockholm Fashion Week was BACK, the brainchild of designer Ann-Sofie Back. Ann-Sofie Back is somewhat of a Swedish fashion Demigod. She set up her own label Ann-Sofie Back in 2001, then launched BACK (her more affordable line) in 2005. In 2009 she became joint creative director of Cheap Monday (another of Sweden's retail success stories) and somewhere along the way she also found time to edit... ...READ MORE

A Love Story from & Other Stories

Whilst parent brand H&M partner with the likes of Isabel Marant and Lanvin, & Other Stories' image is a far quirkier, less mainstream one. The Scandinavian high street label offers an incredible in store experience, hanging polaroid pictures from their rails and laying out jewellery in a minimalist fashion - its like a physical manifestation of your favourite fashion bloggers instagram account.   The brands campaigns are equally immersive. Back... ...READ MORE

A new dawn for Joseph

[caption id="attachment_2978" align="aligncenter" width="400"] Joseph: SS14[/caption] Have you heard the news? I'm a few weeks late to the party to be honest, but there are a few very exciting changes occurring over at Joseph. In womenswear, the latest is that the brand will be showing at London Fashion Week next month. Topshop Unique is now a firm favourite on the calendar, and Whistles too has joined the fashion foray, so... ...READ MORE
