La Fiesta Mexicana

Now the weather is starting to warm up (even if it’s ever so slightly!) our minds are firmly fixed on how we can update our wardrobes to match. So imagine our luck when we came across these festival-worthy pieces from Lowie. Bringing together playful cacti prints, bright colour pops and fringing, Lowie’s SS16 Mexicana collection certainly aims to sizzle. The eye-catching Pom Pom headband is a fun, stand out piece, while the Yucatan Print Bermuda shorts is just the right length guaranteeing a comfy and stylish look. We can’t wait for summer!

Wear and where?

If you’re someone who always likes to dress to impress, whether doing a spot of shopping, heading out for a bite to eat or soaking up some culture at a gallery, then it can sometimes be a little tricky to gauge what the dress code should be. But help is at hand…

We’ve spent some time deciding what our perfect outfit for every occasion and first up is the art gallery, where you want to play it smart but comfy.APC Denim Ruffle Shirt Illustration There’s nothing worse than getting too warm when stomping around the city’s best galleries, so layering is a must. We love this comfy APC Denim shirt, perfect to throw on with a pair of jeans and a jumper.

MuaMua Instagram Bag

A cross-body bag that only has room for our essentials is a no-brainer, as you don’t want to be weighed down all day. This quirky MuaMua number is our go-to, and is totally Instagram-worthy!

And most importantly, no feet would be complete without a pair of comfy trainers. Make sure every step is taken in comfort and in style by wearing your trusty Converse.

Oh My Clumsy Heart

Ohmyclumsyheart1Sophie Davies, founder of jewellery brand Oh My Clumsy Heart, has always gone against the grain. Self-taught, she began making her own brooches and costume jewellery as a hobby before realising she had a sustainable business on her hands.

Finding Etsy problematic and political, she left to start her own website with a blog on the side, The Private Life of a Girl, where she regularly gives creative advice and business tips.

After perfecting her jewellery designs and switching to sterling silver and gold (ethically resourced, of course), what’s left are minimal but classic designs.

Oh My clumsy Heart Jewellery

From simple hoops to pewter crabs, Oh My Clumsy Heart couldn’t be more versatile. Sophie set out to create a brand that would surpass seasonal trends and throwaway fashions, and she’s certainly done that.

Vogue 100: A Century of Style

If you find yourself at a loose end this weekend (and you don’t want to get caught in the forecasted cold, wind and rain) then you should try and make your way over to the National Portrait Gallery to see the Vogue 100: A Century of Style exhibition, which opens today.

Vogue was founded in 2016 and has been at the cutting edge of fashion ever since, with some of the world’s most famous faces gracing the cover, making it the world’s most influential fashion magazine.

The National Portrait Gallery have worked with Condé Nast to put together a display of 280 prints from the archives, featuring portraits by some of our favourite photographers, including Patrick DeMarchelier, Clifford Coffin and George Hoyningen-Huene.

We were lucky enough to get an exclusive sneak peek of the Vogue shop last week, where we were treated to our own personalised Vogue biscuits from The Biscuiteers, as well as first dibs on exclusive Vogue prints, accessories and specially commissioned designs from Karen Mabon, Anna Pugh and Andrea Garland.

 

If you can’t make it over this weekend, don’t worry, the exhibition runs until 22nd May. Though don’t leave it too long, it’s a must-see!

For the love of Liberty

Liberty in Fashion Exhibiton Header

This year Liberty is turning the ripe old age of 140 and to celebrate the occasion the Fashion and Textile Museum are hosting an exhibition, Liberty in Fashion.  The exhibition charts Liberty’s evolution throughout the years and explores how their style became so iconic, with their distinctive textile prints and instantly recognisable floral patterns.

Liberty in Fashion opens today and runs until 28th February, but we were lucky enough to get a sneaky preview earlier this week. The exhibition is made up of nine key sections, showcasing fashion from their humble beginnings selling imported exotic silks from the Far East, to the infamous swinging sixties in London, as well as their modern collaborations with designers such as Anna Sui, Acne and Nike to name a few.

There are more than 150 garments on display from a whole host of designers, including Jean Muir, Yves Saint and Vivienne Westwood. If you find yourself in the capital, it’s definitely worth heading over and taking a look…
