When I first seen pictures of Jil Sander’s Spring 2017 collection I was blown away. The colour palette for one is beautiful; with a range of tonal outfits (which is a favourite of mine, previous blog post here). Going from stark white and grey to toned blue and then into greens, yet including pops of orange and ombré. Additionally, the choice of fabrics is simple yet effective, combining traditional tailoring with leather, scuba and wide mesh knits, to create texture and fluidity throughout the collection.
I feel this collection overall is strong due to the use of colours which are similar to those used within Pantone’s colour predictions for Fall 2016. However, I feel they are one step up, helping to take the collection into the new season of Spring 2017.
Summer is quickly approaching and in Nottingham it’s perfect non-jacket weather. This cute crochet jacket/top I bought from ASOS (by Monki) is perfect as it suits as both an over top and jacket in one.
For our current university project, we had to pick a product category to research into for autumn/winter 2015 trends. My group and I decided that denim was of particular interest to us and felt as though current denim trends were interesting enough to research about.
Firstly, we had to complete secondary research using WGSN and magazines to source ideas for what was predicted to be on trend. We then had to complete retail research in which we looked at how the trends had been developed into garments for consumers to purchase. After this, we then had to complete street style research to determine whether consumers are buying into these trends and how they’re styling the garments together.
My friend Dan kindly put together an outfit based around one of the current denim trends for me to shoot today, biker jeans.
A new outfit post is long overdue, and I got some new clothes recently so it seemed logical to feature them in an outfit post.
My birthday was last month and my sister bought me this white satchel bag from Accessorize and with my birthday money I chose to buy this beautiful v-neck top from &other stories and some white Nike air max thea’s. I paired them both with my longline coat from Topshop and my Monki scribble skirt I bought in the summer, and obviously added some tights to keep my legs warm as it’s still cold in the UK.
I kept my make-up very simple and clean to keep with the modern minimal theme.
Whilst browsing Style.com, I was major crushing over the Berlin Fashion Week street style. There was a range of bright and quirky and simple and monochrome (which were obviously the outfits I was loving.) Here are some of the looks I really liked.
