Kurt Geiger Spring/Summer 2014 preview


For Kurt Geiger, spring/summer 2014 is a celebration of its signature spike heel; toasted with luxury leather bags and fantastic flats.

Whichever trend you embrace next s/s Kurt Geiger has a shoe to match your style. Not to mention the bags, which are a particular leap forward from the classic clutch-with-shoulder-strap we’re used to from Kurt Geiger. Next season the brand is offering totes, bucket bags and smart organiser bags… which I read the other day as ‘career bags’… a great description for the bag-I’d-use-at-the-office-bag…

Next spring will be the first season sine becoming a Kurt Geiger fan that I think the flats will run home with the ‘most-coveted’ prize.

Kurt Geiger SS’13 Shoe Collection

Hi All, 🙂

This week I was lucky enough to visit the Kurt Geiger design rooms at the company’s HQ. I was there to view the 2013 spring/summer 2013 collection. I was a little apprehensive… was it going to be like a high-heel massacre, discarded soles, frayed laces, broken stilettos and thrown away designs everywhere? “I’d definitely have worn those” ready to burst from my lips, I went in…

Of course it wasn’t like that, it was actually better than I could have imagined. A genuine atelier, it had fashion sketches, style collages, inspiration boards a plenty… Walls were made of huge glass windows, and next season’s shoe styles were already being created by designers sitting at Macs.

Not to mention the swatches and photographs which covered every work surface… and you know the odd pair of shoes…

A Style Post: Country Tweed & Urban Heels

Hello All,

You know, I was just looking back through a few past posts and I’ve only just realised how much I comment on the weather; it really is a lot.

It’s probably something to do with the fact that our Northern European climate and its unpredictable weather dictates exactly what we wear… Maybe my references to it are just an excuse when I write style posts as to why I’m wearing what I’m wearing. i.e. when I sat down to write this post, the first thing I typed was something along the lies of bright sunny autumn days. A description which easily explains why I’m wearing layers, which are necessary for those kind of days.

I love this outfit. The layers keep it fashion-forward but also wearable. The boots and coat are set to be my autumn/winter 2012 staples; the Burberry cardigan, which I have had since last year, is a really loose knit so isn’t warm enough for the depths of winter, but it’s perfect for now.

why do we always want next season’s fashion now?

… & Warehouse A/W’12 Collection Round Up

Hi All,

I often debate whether or not I should post images from new season fashion previews immediately or wait six moths for the appropriate season, when we can be inspired properly.

No sooner is there is a hint of mild weather and we’re considering ditching the opaques for summer, than I’m writing and posting about what trends are going to big while we warm up for the following winter. Besides, until we actually get there, we can’t possibly know what we’ll want to buy. How many times have I looked at next season’s trends, picking out my favourite pieces only to find that when the time comes, I change my mind. (Remember the aviator / shearling trend A/W’10?)

Fashion weeks SS’13 have the internet hash-tag happy at the moment, but al I want to do is throw myself into buying clothes that I can wear right now. If you follow my twitter @whistyblogs or my FB page then you may have seen my new Kurt Geiger black suede winter boots; the foundation to my A/W’12 wardrobe.

This season’s trends; printed trousers/trouser suits, embellishments, Baroque etc… can be found in pretty much all the high street stores, including Warehouse right now.

These are a few of my favourite pieces from the collection:

Happy Shopping

Trend Stalker: Statement Trousers

Hello all,

Here’s this month’s Metro Herald column…

Tip Top Trousers

Bold, brash and in a myriad of prints, this month’s trend focus is the statement trouser. All about shape, colour and prints, it’s the most exciting way to bring your wardrobe into the new season. Prada and Miu Miu, Balmain and Prabal Gurung, all featured printed trousers in their A/W’12 collections.

Statement trousers may look a bit intimidating but they will be your best friend this season.

Clockwise from top left, Prada, Balmain, Prabal Gurung, Miu Miu

If pastel florals and earthy tribal prints are great for spring and summer, mild September needs something more vibrant. Indeed, the trick to wearing this season’s statement trousers is about being bold. Choose paisley, damask, Art Nouveau or geo-print, just make sure your choice can be seen. No wishy washy pastels here please and definitely no leggings. Slim fit, cigarette pants, or wide-leg palazzo styles give you plenty of alternative options. Not only are the print and shape of your trousers key, but the colours and fabric are even more so; deep purple, bright green or rich blue; wool, silk or brocade will ensure your pins make the perfect on-trend statement.

The high street has great budget-friendly versions. River Island’s cigarette pant (pictured left £35/€47) will give you an abstract paisley print, in metallic Jacquard. There’s a bit of last minute S/S’12 bargain hunting online at ASOS with these oriental print, acid yellow, palazzo pants (pictured middle now £17.50/€24.88). However if you like your prints of the more traditional floral nature, choose this tapered-leg trouser at Warehouse in a midnight-blue and purple floral print (pictured right £50/€65).

Perfect for autumnal days, but teamed up with a fitted cashmere polo neck and a pair of Kurt Geiger’s Lady Bell patent flats, any of these trousers will provide a perfect look for winter too. No one will be saying you are lacking in the trouser department this September, that’s for sure.

New Shoes.

Hello All!

Thought I’d share my summer essential fashion accessories -or shoes – with you… a mixed bag with Steal, Deal and Fo’ Real price tags too.

STEAL: Black Suede Hi Top Hidden Wedge Trainers

£24.99, New

DEAL: Snake Skin Leather Heels with Gold Toe Tip

£49.99 New

FO’ REAL: Ice Cream-Shades, multi-buckle flats

€220.00, Kurt Geiger @Brown Thomas

This last pair actually look pretty badass with black opaque tights. I wasn’t sure they would because they’re such a summer shoe, but great; that’s them being worn through ’till Christmas then. There is no better way to update your wardrobe, and bring your fashion credentials up to the minute than by buying new-season shoes.

Put your best foot forward people!
