Gorgeous Clothes Alert: Faun Bloggers Tea Party

faunmain1 Gorgeous Clothes Alert: Faun Bloggers Tea Party %tag

This really has been an amazing week, not only for myself but for the exposure of my prized possession, this blog. After a successful Bertie blogger event, I got a last minute invite to an intimate blogger’s tea party to check out new womenswear label, Faun, and I couldn’t have been more thrilled as this is one seriously gorgeous new brand.

This event had everything you would want from a tea party: a fabulous location at the Out Of Town, a cafe-cum-furniture shop-cum vintage haven *if you haven’t been you should – it is amazing*, you could buy everything from the seats that we were sat on to the amazing Singer sewing machine; then we had truly scrummy cupcakes and cake pops from Molly Bakes; great company, I got to have a catch up and a gossip with Carina100, Wolf Whistle Amy, and I finally got to meet the lovely Alex Loves, and another of my favourite blogger’s La Vie a la Mode *gorgeous and stylish blogger – check her out*; and then to top it all off we got to swoon over new clothes. Yes, I love being a blogger!!

What makes this label for me has to be the quality – most pieces are silk or linen, and the wearability of the gorgeous, feminine clothes. The ethos behind the brand is to ‘bridge the gap between high street and catwalk’, and they certainly achieve that with this debut spring/summer 2011 collection.

The contemporary line features dresses, tunics, bias cut t-shirts and vests *which I have to get*, blouses and even shorts, we were also treated to a preview of the stunning tulip skirts which will be added for autumn/winter *trust me they are worth the wait*.

What I loved was the colour palette, cornflower blues, faded corals, and acid yellows – perfect for summer.

This is my favourite dress from the collection, I love the mixture of linen and silk, the utility vibe with the exposed zip and pockets, and most of all the casual vibe of the dress. Closely followed by this neon yellow colour block silk dress, super flattering, with its black elasticated waist and I love the draped front pockets and black panelling to the back, gorgeous and also comes in a coral print.

If like me you are into flattering silhouettes, girlie touches with cascading ruffles and silk panels teamed with edgy detailing of exposed zips, pockets and cut-outs, which subtle peek through on the backs of the dress, then this is new clothing label for you.

Created by George Singleton, you really must check out the rest of the collection, with prices starting from £80 up to £315 for the key statement pieces, perfect if you have a wedding to attend this summer, or if you are after a casual-yet-chic piece for work, there is something for everyone.

SS11 Campaign: Stuart Weitzman Evokes A 70s Vibe

Bradford single 500x604 SS11 Campaign: Stuart Weitzman Evokes A 70s Vibe %tag

I love shoe adverts, and for me the more glamorous the better, and these campaign shots from Stuart Weitzman are so gorgeous. Shot in New York City by photographer Paul Cruz under creative direction of Rick Biedel, the campaign builds on its glamorous light concept, but this time evoking a 70’s vibe.

My favourite of the two shots is the super-sexy Bradford platforms (above), which represents two key spring trends, with its woven braiding and colour-blocking – stunning!!! But I have to admit the Xray, a stylish leopard print update to the popular espadrille silhouette, was a close second place.

Video Loving: Prada Goes Fun For SS11

I just had to share this mental Prada video showing of their spring/summer collection. Last season Prada went for a video featuring the gorgeous model Angela Lindvall singing, and I loved the smouldering feel to the singing, the art direction and the styling. Well this season Prada has had an injection of fun with this quirky short. The models and clothes really do project personality – I love the fact that fashion can be such a cameleon from one season to the next. This video definitely cheered me up.

Once again shot by Steven Meisel, the campaign has been inspired by legendary jazz age entertainer Josephine Baker *who also heavily influenced Bodyamr’s SS11 collection at LFW*, and captures the models in exaggerated dance poses.

Love this campaign.

SS11 Campaign: Elie Saab Taps Erin Wasson

i am a huge Elie Saab fan, it isn’t often that I don’t like one of the label’s many dresses worn by celebrities during award season, but I have to admit I was a little surprised that they went for Erin Wasson as the model to front their spring/summer 2011 ad campaign.

Don’t get me wrong she looks gorgeous and elegant in these shots, I love both dresses but I think the one below with the embellishment cuffs is my favourite. I can totally see that dress walking the red carpet on someone like Kate Beckinsale or Cameron Diaz.

SS11 Campaign: Louis Vuitton Goes Oriental For Spring

Last season the Louis Vuitton ad campaign, with its old-Hollywood glamour, and trio of supermodels got my vote for one of the best campaigns of the season. I think it had a lot to do with the Mad Men feel about the clothes and styling. Well for spring/summer 2011, LV have stuck with photographer Steven Meisel, and gone for models Raquel Zimmermann, Freja Beha Erichsen and Kristen McMenamy, but this time LV have gone for an oriental feel.

What strikes me the most about these shots are the accessories - absolutely gorgeous – I really want that fan!!

Video Loving: Missoni Spring 2011 A Family Affair

For spring/summer 2011, Missoni has gathered its friends and family, including the gorgeous Leighton Meester, to star in its new campaign shot by Juergen Teller.

I like the way it has been shot together like a family album, with lots of spinning around, and my favourite shot of the campaign has to be Leighton on the rocking horse below *come on we all have a picture like that don’t we!*.

So come on how many famous faces can you spot?
