McQueen Men

20 Jan

I don’t often post about menswear but when it comes to Alexander McQueen I can’t resist. If the house of McQueen have any say on Fall 2015 menswear then we’re set for a military/uniform inspired autumn/winter for our menfolk and I will love it! Neat hair and frock coats, yes please sir… and did I mention the shoes? Brilliance.

Alexander Wang performs for H&M

23 Oct

H&M do designer collaborations well, the first by Karl Lagerfeld back in 2004 set the bar high with sleek black tailored pieces and egotistical white tees adorned with the face of Mr. Lagerfeld himself. Amaze.

Another highlight for me was the Maison Martin Margiela collection in 2012 which featured oversized casuals (my fave) and a fabulous pair of mirror ball leggings, who wouldn’t want them?!

Due for release into H&M stores on 6th November 2014 Alexander Wang’s hotly anticipated performance/fashion collection is set to be a hit in and out of the gym. Relaxed shapes and a neutral colour palette make the pieces accessible to a wide audience and with a broad range of price tags there will be something for almost everyone.

Speaking about the collection Mr Wang said ‘it doesn’t matter If you’re a luxury customer or an H&M customer- if you need gym clothes, if you work out, if you’re active, there’s a piece for everyone’ and isn’t that just what designer/high street collaborations should be all about?

Here are my key pieces…

This neon trim top would look fierce for a workout but could look great as part of a sports-luxe outfit layered over a figure fitting black sheath dress, an easy wardrobe addition at £27.99.

I’m in love with these leather trousers, the shape is perfect but I must admit, with their £179.99 price tag I’m probably going to have to live without them (sobs).

These Freja boots from Wangs own label 2010 spring/summer collection have had a rework in scuba fabric and are definitely not a pair of shoes to pop on for spinning class! I’m imagining these with a full ladylike skirt and loose knit jumper for a bit of a tough edge. Boots £149.99.

If you want everyone to know you’re wearing Wang then I’d make this my purchase of the collection, in soft grey marl with a slightly cropped shape I am a little in love with this and think it would look just perfect with a slouchy pair of vintage 501’s.

The last item on my Wang wish list is this gorgeous yoga mat. I am after all a self confessed yogi and at £34.99 how could I resist. Namaste.

London Fashion Week Street Style

16 Feb

Fashion Weeks, wherever they may be in the world, are a time for our favourite designers to dazzle us with their stunning new creations. Fashion Weeks are also a time when us fashion junkies get to show of our look and I love it when the cameras focus on regular girls rocking their own individual style, so here is a mini celebration of all things strictly street.
