Oh Rats!

Chinese New Year heralds the year of the Rat. Are you ready?

Ok, so a rodent doesn’t necessarily scream glamour, however the Chinese Lunar New Year is cause for huge celebrations. On 25th January the Year Of The Rat was welcomed with fanfare, and parties to mark this will continue for just over a fortnight, finishing with the Lantern Festival on February 8th. During this time Chinese communities across the world will be decorating their homes, throwing parades and generally kicking up their heels as they wish for a happy and prosperous year ahead. A symbol of renewal, wealth and surplus, while the rat is perhaps not the chicest of creatures, the colour code is lucky red, gold, and of course just a dash of super glam.

Get The Best Of What’s On The Rack Right Now

Sale Savvy
We live in a world that is as unpredictable as it is exciting. There are the vagaries of the summer weather – which so far have called for linen one minute, leather the next. And unless you’ve been under a rock for the last few days, you’ll have heard of the mayhem caused by the flick-flaking royals Harry and Meghan – surely unpredictability at its best. In amongst this roller coaster start to 2020, fashion has raised its head as the beacon of consistency; which for those who want to shop the designer sales in style, is good news indeed.

Blue Hue

From Cashmere to Curtains This Will Be Your Pick

Pantone – the ‘colour partner’ company powerhouse - has just announced its Pantone Color Of The Year for 2020. Over the last 20 years the tradition of naming an annual colour has become an increasingly influential moment in not just interior design but also fashion, and the big reveal is awaited by many in creative industries with bated breath. The start of a new decade holds the fizz of anticipation, so the kudos for the 2020 colour is even more heightened. For those who don’t already know the colour palette has recently been announced as…ta daaa…Classic Blue. Noted as ‘a timeless and enduring blue hue elegant in its simplicity’ this shade was greeted with fanfare and popping corks by designers everywhere.

The Flash Pack
Red carpet awards are always a bit of a crystal ball fashion moment.

Fabrics and Textures Elevate Trans-seasonal Dressing

Material Girl

Picking outfits that work for changeable weather is key for this time of year. The range of fabric choices that we associate with the warmer months are now in full force – linen, silk, cotton…a veritable smorgasbord of textural delights. Choice of fabric has never been such a hot topic, both for the designers and the consumer, and ‘sustainable’ is not just a buzz word, but more a promise of things to come. The move to make fabric manufacture and production more ethical makes for an exciting time in fashion, and brings us a bevy of new and beautiful materials to invest in.

An Evening With Elk

Sustain Your Fashion Fix With Elk Label

An Evening With Elk
Wendys recently hosted an event with guest speakers from the Elk brand. The inside scoop on the latest collection is always incentive enough to justify an evening out, but throw in bubbles and canapés and it’s a no brainer. Of course the biggest lure is that you love the brand itself, and looking around the room two things were obvious. Firstly it was packed with ladies who clearly appreciate the beauty of Elk. Secondly it’s clear that there is no such thing as a typical Elk fan.

Seeing Red

Top Looks From The 2019 Emmy Awards Ceremony

 Seeing Red
Red Carpet Award Ceremonies are always a feast for the fashion eye. It goes without saying that on the one hand for the majority of us, the outfits are never going to translate directly into our wardrobes. However, on the other hand the inspiration that can come from these extravaganzas is simply immeasurable. These events are always fantastic indicators of not only what’s to come in the fashion forecast, but also how we can put things together in a fashion forward way. We are being presented oodles of raw material to work into our lives.
