All that money you were saving up to buy friends and family Christmas presents? Bid it farewell. They’d be better off with lumps of coal because the Coach line of Peanuts/Snoopy apparel and bags is almost here. Everything is covetable and if there isn’t a Snoopy tote staring back at me by the end of the month there will be tears. The range includes pouches, t-shirts, luggage tags, pin buttons and varying sizes of leather Snoopy dolls which look kinda sex dungeon but hey, who’s complaining?
A match made in heaven? Is it possible to believe that The Simpsons first aired in – wait for it – 1989. The show’s influence is still felt and HYPE capture all its garish, lovable colouration in this collaborative series of t-shirts, vests, sweats, shorts and joggers in casual fits as well as a backpack and bucket hat. Motifs include the whole family plus the prerequisite donuts Duff beer. Can I get a DOH!?!
Taking over a derelict building just off the strand, and a stones throw from Somerset House, Thomas Tait was the hottest ticket in town this SS15. Having generated a lot of buzz since being the youngest Central St. Martins MA Graduate, and then going on to win their Young Fashion Designer prize, all eyes were firmly on the young designer to see how he would present his SS15 offering.
Known affectionately as the King of Sequins, you can rely on Ashish to bring London Fashion Week to a close with a bit of glitz and glam. Well, we say a bit of glitz…! The entire show was a glitterball fiasco of energy and colour, swooping down the runway in mesmerising sparkles and shades, making us all long for an all night disco so we too could bathe in the sequins.
Hall & Oates. Talk Talk. They leap to mind while watching MOTHXR run through several songs in a London basement venue post-interview; sighs of new wave that jiggles with low-key funk as much as a dispassionate, coolly detached voyeurism. The noir-ish feel from electronic drum beats, sparse, angular synths and echoing, searching guitars is struck home by producer Jimmy Giannopoulos, bassist Darren Will and guitarist Simon Oscroft alongside Penn Badgley’s broody, languid vocals.
Hailing from Favela Vidigal in Rio De Janiero, Pearls Negras’ Alice, Jemi and Mari are baby-faced but aggressive lyricists with bass-heavy favela rhythms that hook the personality of Brazil’s slum towns. Their new mixtape pulls no punches – lippy, addictive and uncompromising.
Fusing together sportswear and street style with luxe fabrics, Christopher Raeburn’s SS15 offering left us all breathless with it’s simple beauty. Raeburn just has this absolute air about him that seems to be such effortless chic – even when it’s sports style wear. It seemed sheer, lightweight and futuristic – but still within the Raeburn style of practical. Standout colours in the spectrum used were navy, grey and our personal fave – baby pink. Perfect. See what we mean about effortless luxe?
Bora Aksu brought us romanticism for winter and next spring is no exception. Ruffles in ivory, baby blue and pale pink joyfully danced down the catwalk with a vintage flourish. The mix of delicate sheer material and lace paired with heavy crochet brought this collection out of fantasy and into practical wearable pieces to adorn ourselves with throughout the transitional weather.
The collection showcased a minimalist nineties look in a palette of monochrome and dove greys. Nineties silhouettes reigned supreme with long line waistcoats, asymmetrical cuts and graphic prints, seemingly inspired by current street wear and the effortless Stockholm aesthetic we lust over and long for.
