Hitting Stores Soon: Eddy Anemian For H&M

HM eddy anemain 1 Hitting Stores Soon: Eddy Anemian For H&M %tag

H&M have a long list of designer collaborations, next month will be a certain Alexander Wang, which you will see everywhere, but for me all attention should be on the incredible Design Award winner Eddy Anemian who has created a gorgeous, elegant 10-piece capsule collection.

Inspired by Tilda Swinton’s character in ‘I Am Love’ and the work of French painter Ingres, the gorgeous line features a craftsmanship that you just don’t expect from someone who is still a fashion student at the visual art school La Cambre in Brussels and a high street name, the meticulous construction and texture of the pieces is going to surprise a lot of people, especially when the prices range from £19.99 to £215.

The pics don’t do the collection’s technique and textures justice, but the structures and abstract patterns have been intricately created by using cut floral upholstery fabric into strips to create the skirts, jackets, trousers and tops.

I am totally in love with the long yellow floral skirt constructed from vertical strips, as well as the blue floral jacket and matching trousers, and the gorgeous white skirt made from horizontal raw-edged ruffles to give the impression of the patterns found in marble. Simply divine and this is coming from a fashion student – imagine the greatness after a few collections under his belt.

If the bold pieces weren’t enough to get you excited, the collection also features a white jumpsuit with floral sleeves, a black heavy twill top, and a pair of white high-waisted trousers to provide contrast and the tailoring looks exquisite.

The collection launches in select H&M stores, as well as online, from October 23 and I can tell you now that I will be trying on that incredible maxi skirt.

Are you excited to see new talent like this getting exposure on the high street?

Introducing: Fashercise – For The Stylishly Fit

Fashercise 1 Introducing: Fashercise   For The Stylishly Fit %tagFor the past year I have been watching one of my closest friends and fellow fashion blogger and my partner-in-crime, Alex from AlexLoves.com taking on a new challenge and living out her dreams with her new stylishly fit website, Fashercise.

What started off as an incredible fashion and fitness blog, with the tastiest pancake recipe and honest reviews on the latest exercise classes and products, has turned into an amazing shopping platform selling some of the hottest activewear brands in the world.

With her new partner-in-crime, Cam **I promise I am not jealous**, they have selected some of the best, young, independent sportswear brands out there – from the likes of Charli Cohen, Lucas Hugh, Lexie Sport, and Monreal London. As well as a host of new names such as Dear Kate, Michi and Olympia Activewear, which do the most amazing sports bras. Plus they have the ultra cool Zoe Karssen, who I am slightly addicted to, and I have my eye on these batwing joggers.

As well as launching an online sportswear store, Alex and Cam have also completely transformed the look of Fashercise – showing a lot of other e-commerce sites out there how it should be done – we don’t just want shopping we also want to be informed with great editorial. I am super impressed and proud of them both for creating an amazing fitness platform that is just going to keep on growing.

If you like fashion, do a little or a lot of sport, want to combine both fashion and fitness with cool clothes then you have to check out their site, Fashercise. Trust me you will be introduced to some amazing new brands that will blow the minds of your fellow workout buddies.

Have you check out Fashercise’s amazing selection of brands?

Shopping: Fashion Week Inspiration at H&M

hm fashion weeks 2 Shopping: Fashion Week Inspiration at H&M %tag

It is three weeks to London Fashion Week, I say it every season but wow it really did come around quickly this time, and it means I have started my panic/preparation for my outfits. I always find it more pressure during fashion week, everyone seems to go a little crazier, a more exaggerated version of themselves, whereas I generally like to stick to black, black and a bit more black, unless of course I am in jeans!!!

So thank god for H&M’s new Fashion Weeks collection that is a monochromatic minimalism masterclass, while still offering that quirky fashion week edge. I basically want the whole collection, but I think these pieces have to be favourite, starting with this gorgeous simple black crepe cami dress – I love the clean lines, the fact it actually falls at the knee and the sporty mesh panel to the front, but most of I adore the price of £12.99. Also it works perfectly with the wide coat, another bargain at £39.99, just pair with classic black heels and this is one stylish and comfortable look.

The other look that is high on my shopping list has to be the oversized white blouse, £24.99, nipped in at the waist with that large wide belt, £24.99, teamed with very cool black jersey leggings, which for £14.99 they are a great price but I think I would need more model-like pins to pull them off, but I think the blouse and belt would work just as well with jeans.

Then we have the chunky knit, the long line blazer, the fake fur jacket, and the statement tee – basically this collection has everything you need to put together a great fashion week capsule wardrobe.

Whether you are planning for fashion week or not – would you wear this monochrome collection?

Introducing: Shore Projects Watches

shore projects watch 4 Introducing: Shore Projects Watches %tag

I am fast becoming a little bit of a watch hoarder, collector, wearer **delete as appropriate**, I blame my fiancé, watches really are his thing. My obsession started as a way to frame my bracelet stacks, to add a splash of colour to an outfit, or a touch of bling. Basically I couldn’t find one watch to do the job, which apparently is weird, well according to one of my friends who insists that you only need one watch, as it just tells the time!!! Which got me thinking is there really one watch out there that could work for any occasion, any look, any mood?

Well strangely I think I might have actually found a watch to coordinate with nearly any outfit, excluding a black-tie ball of course, a cool new British watch brand, Shore Projects, which has created a gorgeous and fun collection of timepieces inspired by the seaside.

What is so great about this brand, other than the fact they are British, is that they have created four classic watch faces, all named after seaside resorts, which can easily be transformed with a quick swap of the watch strap. So one day you could wear vibrant yellow, the next girlie pink, then the fun and flirty mint green and then another day could be the gorgeous blue pastel hue. You will never get bored of this brand.

shore projects watch 5 Introducing: Shore Projects Watches %tag

I think the reason this brand works is the classic design of the watch face, I do love large round faces, especially in brushed silver, it really is timeless. My favourite, seen above, is Poole, brushed silver with a white face, Whitstable is the same silver finish but with a black face, and then there are two brushed gold options, Portland with the white and St Ives with the charcoal face.

It is the quick and easy strap mechanism, trust me it takes seconds to change, which makes it easy to do a daily swap on the straps that makes this a brand to watch. I have always loved an element of customisation to my look without actually doing much in the way of DIY and Shore Projects gets that with the eight classic colours to choose from, and then the added bonus of regular additions, I am loving the summer polka dot collection, and I am hoping for some metallic hues for day-to-night vibes in future collections.

Shore Projects watches, which come with one strap cost £85 each, additional straps cost £15 each from the classic collection, and £20 for the polka dot line. I already have my eye on adding the Ocean Blue Polka Dot and the classic Orange straps, I will soon have one for every day of the week!!!

Have you discovered Shore Projects watches? What do you think of changing your watch straps every day?

Haute Couture Week: 10 Wedding-Worthy Gowns At Elie Saab

Elie Saab Couture AW14 1 Haute Couture Week: 10 Wedding Worthy Gowns At Elie Saab %tag

I adore Paris Haute Couture week it not only brings out the most starry front rows but the fashion on display is always so exquisite and as always Elie Saab didn’t disappoint with his showstopping autumn/winter 2014 ‘Palais Des Lumieres’ collection.

I might have my two wedding dress sorted, which I love and can’t wait to wear, but there is still a part of me that would love to be an Elie Saab bride. To wear a beautifully crafted, dramatic gown is the thing of dreams and the finale gown to the AW14 show was a magnificent, divine and beautiful gown. I am not normally a lover of pearlescent white, but this dramatic and regal gown really does demand that it is the brightest of them all and I love it.

Elie Saab always produces delicate masterpieces that are exquisitely embroidered, they shimmer in the light, and each one of these gowns would make for a spectacular wedding. I love the sheer elements to some of the gowns, which of course I am sure you can get lined, I really adore the champagne gold hue it would make for a great alternative to white and ivory, and I love, love, love the short and flirty lace number, wouldn’t that just be perfect for an elopement wedding.

I have to be honest I loved everything about the AW14 collection and I can’t wait to see the gorgeous gowns grace the red carpet, but these 10 beauties definitely deserve a walk down the aisle.

Do you dream of being an Elie Saab bride?

Shop Her Style: Jennifer Lopez Wearing Markus Lupfer ‘Love Myself’ Sweater

jlo instagram Shop Her Style: Jennifer Lopez Wearing Markus Lupfer Love Myself Sweater %tag

OK so how hot is Jennifer Lopez looking at the moment, I am seriously obsessed with how good her body is, don’t get me wrong she has always looked amazing but right now she is insanely hot.

Her instagram has become a daily pleasure for me, I love that she shares behind-the-scenes shots of her tour, gets her fans to vote on her outfits and even post no make-up selfies of herself. I have to be honest but move over Beyonce, J-Lo is taking your reign as my Instagram queen!!!

One of Jennifer’s Instagram’s that caught my eye this week was this stunning piccie of the singer, showing off her great pins and fabulous hair, and the cutest jumper ever that I instantly recognised as Markus Lupfer, basically the only designer you want to buy if you are after a statement sweater.

The cotton pink sequinned Markus Lupfer ‘Love Myself’ sweater is perfection and I have found it on FarFetch so you too can look like J-Lo, I just wish buying it also meant her glamsquad came and styled me up as she looks flawless in this picture.

Love J-Lo’s sweater – check out 10 of my favourite Markus Lupfer sweaters right now:

Video: Diane Kruger Shares Her Style Secrets

MyTheresa Diane kruger  Video: Diane Kruger Shares Her Style Secrets %tag

I don’t think it is a secret that Diane Kruger is one of my favourite style icons, whether it is red carpet or street style, she always seems to nail it, well the gorgeous actress has joined forces with online boutique MyTheresa to share her style secrets as well as her autumn/winter picks.

Diane is the 7th star of  MyTheresa.com women series, following the likes of Alexa Chung, Clémence Poésy, and Atlanta De Cadenet, and the stylish star chats about why she likes to hit the red carpet without the help of a stylist, apparently she started picking her own clothes as she “didn’t want to look like everybody else”, her love of make-up, her friendship with Karl Lagerfeld and why you won’t see her joining Twitter.

The actress also gives clues on to how to dress a la Kruger – it is all about forgetting men!

“I think most women dress for other women,” she explains in the video. “It’s easy to please a man, the shorter the skirt and the sexier the dress, they will most likely approve of your outfit.”

Check out the actresses full shoot with MyTheresa – it is basically everything you need to emulate her style. I think first on my wishlist has to be that Valentino embroidered cape and monochrome Stella McCartney jumper dress – tres chic!!!
