Giorgio Armani Played Textures at Made In Armani Show in Milan

Giorgio Armani Played Textures at Made In Armani Show in Milan
Giorgio Armani is not a new name in the fashion business instead it’s a leading fashion house - for all the right reasons. This spring, the designer of all designers decided to stir up his collection with a lot of texture and a hint classic cuts. Read ahead, for further insight into the latest collection showcased at Milan Fashion Week.

This suit showcases a contemporary look with classic round corner jacket and a mandarin collared shirt. The jacket is paired with dark-colored straight pant, to bring out the right balance between metallic shades and neutral colors.

This ensemble is another perfection in the overall collection. It contains the perfect blend of color (metals mostly with a hint of matte hues) and layers that call for texture. This piece perfectly depicts the modern ‘astronaut’ trend, which is expected to last this year.

This ensemble features a monochrome theme for the pant and shirt that is layered with a nice silver textured coat and slip-on.

This one casually features a dark greyish hue with loose stitch for the days when you feel lazy but yet you have to dress up!

Which one do you like best?


Temperley London Spring/Summer 2018

Spring/Summer Collection 2018 - London Fashion Week

Alice Temperley’s latest collection screams 1950’s French Riviera.

Think Audrey Hepburn taking a stroll along the Promenade de la Croisette in the South of France. The elegant silhouette (a signature characteristic of all Temperley’s collections), the simple pastel blue pattern, the halter neck, the length, the pinched waist...but- hold the phone- the chilli red geometric prints and sheer panels demonstrate that this is no dated piece but in fact, the epitome of that iconic phrase 'classic with a modern twist'.

It's all part of Temperley’s new aesthetic in the face of fashion critics stating that previous collections were “too pretty” to be considered fashion according to Vogue writer Maya Singer. At the start of the 2018 show, Temperley announced that her collection would be wearable fashion with a bite. It's the patterns, colours and cut that provides the collection with the nostalgic bohemian vibe but Temperley ensures edge through suggestive poppers trailing from hem to the belt or generous sheer panels in the ultimately feminine sun dresses.

However, Temperley’s true break away from her traditional style came later in the collection with her high shine silver metallic bardot jumpsuit and matching coat, Neri pinstripe Kimono and trousers or metallic mini dress with nude tulle extensions which can only be described as futuristic glamour rather than reimagined classic.

Nevertheless, Temperley didn’t forget her roots as her silver-screen siren evening gowns graced the catwalk with custom intricate hand-worked embellishment and sophisticated cuts as seen with her ballerina show dress- a personal favourite.

In conclusion, Temperley’s Spring/Summer collection offers classic, stylish, feminine pieces yet remains bang on trend through the use of transparent panels, eye catching  prints and a dash of dynamic high-fashion items to keep the critics at bay.

Fall 2017 Collection - London Fashion Week


The Tommy Girl goes Rock Star in Tommy Hilfiger's latest collection "Rock Circus"

Held in London this year to become part of the London branch of Fashion Month, the latest Tommy Hilfiger x Gigi Hadid show played homage to legendary Rock Stars. Set in the iconic Round house, which has held venue to some of the biggest names in Rock and Roll (Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones) the collection had a sort of grungy punk feel to it, although other music era influences were evident. Overall, we would say the collection merged famous musical era fashion, into a medley of looks.

Sticking with the big trends of the season, we saw a lot of plaid and vinyl, with a colour palette of mostly red's and blues, staying true to the Tommy Brand. We particularly love Gigi Hadid's opening look.

The Collection is now shop-able, but we recommend acting fast before these stunning pieces sell out as the collection has done in previous years. Our favourites are below:

RHA School - Upcoming Masterclasses

RHA School - Upcoming Masterclasses
There are some eye catching RHA School Masterclasses coming up soon.


John Kindness first used this medium in New York in 1989 when he was working on a series of bogus antiquities. Kindness has noted that ‘the technique seemed to give objects an instant authority, as if they spoke from another era. Lime plaster is very old technology, but the chemistry is still fascinating.' Kindness’ recent work has been on sculptural pieces and the participants of the masterclass will be working mostly with 2-d panels.



This course will be broken into four parts, each covering a different aspect of painting the head from life. Cian McLoughlin will perform a demo at the beginning of each part after which the participants will be able to apply the principles as they work on their own versions. Individual feedback will be given throughout the course.

New Launches in the Harvey Nichols Food Market

New Launches in the Harvey Nichols Food Market
Love Cocoa is a chocolate company started by James Cadbury. The inspiration came from his great-great-great grandfather, John
Cadbury, who set up Cadbury Chocolate nearly 200 years ago. The
philanthropist built Cadbury on great ethical grounds, looking after its workforce and improving civil rights.

The family is no longer involved in the business and the practices have changed but James wishes to carry on the original traditions of his ancestors. They take great care in sourcing their chocolate, not just ensuring that they select the best tasting chocolate, but that is sourced in the sustainable way. They work to ensure the farmers are paid higher than the market price and work with small, family run businesses.

Keep an eye out for this delicious addition, and plenty more which are coming!

Julien Macdonald

Spring 2018 Ready-to-wear Collection - London Fashion Week

If there is one thing for sure, Julien Macdonald definitely hits the mark between less is more and more is more. Every season, we see new and inventive ways in which to place cut outs and covering just about the bare minimum, at the same time as throwing embellishment onto the models for full on glitz and glamour. We kind of feel that the latest collection is somewhat a lingerie and ballgown hybrid. Or if Strictly went to the beach, this is what everyone would be wearing.

Nonetheless, a stunning collection with some serious party vibes to it. We think that the glitz of the collection with translate very nicely onto the high street come next season, and we can all be expecting to wear sequins and cut-outs on our summer nights out. Or better yet, use the collection as the foundation for our inspiration when we jet off and have to curate an Ibiza party wardrobe next summer. Ok, who's excited already!?
