Biba & House of Fraser spring/summer 2014 preview

Hello!

At House of Fraser there is an obvious definition when it comes to the store’s designer fashion. On one hand it offers on-trend, edgy labels, like Acne, Sportsmax and MCQ; on the other is the every-day, classic labels like Dickens & Jones, Label Lab and Linea. The two style elements, classic and edgy compliment each other as well as being their own entity. For me a pastel tweed car coat from Linea worn with a pair of leather trousers form Bruuns Bazaar is the perfect way to wear both styles…

And then there is Biba, a mix of both day and evening wear, classic and edgy, from sequins and silk to Jersey and leather. Now in its 4th season for House of Fraser, Biba’s S/S’14 collection is its best yet. Hot pink leather coats, sparkling bead-work, statement clutch bags and that leather detail Macintosh are some of the key pieces…Here are the pieces that caught my eye for next season’s spring/summer style…

It is also worth mentioning the Biba interiors collection; thick fluffy throw-pillows, monogrammed towels and gold, black and white porcelain dining sets… and gold cutlery.

A Style Post: Pink Jeans and Leopard Print

Hello all,

As if you’re inside reading right now! Brightly coloured jeans are what summer is about. I like a slash of colour in an outfit but I usually leave it to just the one piece. However, having received my baroque / polka dot print shirt from Sheinside… (new love for on line shopping) I bit the bullet and went for all over colour.

As many of you know, I grew up in London, when i moved to Dublin five years ago, the first thing I noticed about Irish fashion was the vast colour pallette. Ok so in Dublin we still love an LBD or a classic black wool winter coat, but just walking down Dame Street there is so much colour. It took me a while to brave the colour myself, I was  happy to style-watch wearing the odd pop of blue or green. Now I feel brave enough, and what better place to show off my newly-colourised wardrobe, than my old home town?

Oddly, I hadn’t realised that I’d completely accessorized with black, ah well you can’t change everything all at once.

P.S Recognise any of the details in these photos…?

Banksy? Seen Lock Stock and two Smoking Barrells…? If you ever get the chance, taking a stroll around London Bridge to Borough Market and beyond is an amazing way to spend an afternoon.

A Style Post: Mods, Rockers & Mermaid Trousers

Continued….

Or are you Rockers? Ok so sequin leggings – or rather mermaid trousers as some dude shouted at me as I stumbled over the pebbles to get this shot – are hardly rock-chick, not even rock-chic… but while in Brighton!? 🙂 My trusty old leather jacket and thick black shades at least nod to the rocker style. Not sure how the Lita boots would fair in a mosh-pit or on the back of a Harley tho… Ah who’s really gonna check? It’s al about rocker fashion elements anyway, and as we all know I’m more of a Mod at heart anyway…

Whatever your camp, Mods or Rockers or just sitting on-the-fence with the Rolling Stones, you can’t deny both sub-cultures are hard to beat when it comes to cult fashion.

Yours,

Whisty Xx

A Style Post: Mods, Rockers & Mermaid Trousers

Ahoy there!

Brighton, the spiritual home of the Mod.

Being a Mod at heart,with a penchant for biker-style leather, there was only one option for what I’d wear for a day trip to Brighton last weekend. I’d have to go with two outfits. A Fred Perry jumper and a Topshop leather biker jacket.

Trouser-wise, that was a no-brainer; a pair of royal blue, shiny, sparkly skin-tight leggings – which were, to my delight, renamed mermaid trousers by a fabulously fierce fellow outside an ‘adult store’. I’ll go with that, mermaid trousers, at the  seaside  is too perfect.

Are you Mods…

Jumper, Fred Perry

Lita-Style Boots, Korkys

To Be Continued tomorrow…

Karen Millen A/W’11 Round-Up

Hello Strangers!

Karen Millen: the high-end, High Street store known for its classic pieces and quality tailoring with edgy hardware; creates pieces that you’re unlikely to find elsewhere on the High Street.

I always think of Karen Millen as the shop that the senior girl in the office shops at. The girl who you not only have career envy of, but also style envy. She always manages to look professional, and classic but with a cool edge.

I went to the preview on Grafton Street this morning…

Think leather, velvet, textures and plenty of studs.

Note: Claret velvet suit – left.

Coats

Footwear

Bags

Tan leather 70’s-inspired suit
