As it is only 10 days until London Fashion Week Mens, I thought I would recap what happened last season!
I enjoy the way that menswear is changing and is getting brighter and more innovative. I am all for this change. I hope to see more of that in the next 10 days and throughout the whole of this Menswear season from June – July.
Karlie Kloss has had a busy week with travelling to St Louis, dropping her first capsule collection with Express and releasing application forms for her coding summer camp, Kode With Klossy!
Let’s Start off with her Collection Collaboration with Express!
Karlie Kloss X Express
Karlie and Express teamed up to create a collection that shows the elegance and versatility of the wardrobe essentials. This collection is inspired by its target audience, Real Girls.
17 mix and match pieces make up the whole collection which can create more than 100 looks, the collection reflects the beautiful optimism of Karlie and girls all around the world that dare to dream more.
All the hard work led up to the debut of the collection at a live runway show at The Pageant in Karlie’s hometown of St. Louis, Missouri on 30th March 2017.
After taking the world by storm last year, Kode with Klossy is back to inspire another generation of girls to try coding.
“Before my first coding class, the idea that I could build something with code seemed nearly impossible, but after only a couple of courses, I was working with my classmates to program a small drone. I realized that, just like art and fashion, code is about creativity, and that women who have these skills have the power to shape our future – and often have. Women are essential in forging digital progress and knowing how to code is the key to exploring and creating the newest frontier.” – Karlie Kloss
So if you’re a girl and you’re interested in what coding has to offer or even if you just want to make some new friends, try Kode with Klossy. It may unlock your potential!
As you all know I love Karlie Kloss, I think she is amazing and upon finding out this information, I had to share it with you all!
2013 was the year that Chainmail died… well when creative director Julien Dossena did it, he brought it back. With asymmetrical cuts, off the shoulders, mid-lengths and draped material, Dossena breathed new life into this once old fad. The whole collection had a cohesive fun yet sophisticated look running throughout.
With dark patterns and prints, this collection has quickly become one that cannot be forgotten. The striking shapes and animal prints resemble that of a warrior woman. This whole collection draws from the beautiful strength of women and I have to say it is one of my favourite Balmain Collections to date.
Mugler maintained his trademark Angel-Bottle Star shape throughout his various designs.
This collection deserves the name Poetry In Motion. The beautifully exquisite dark romantisist theme brings the whole collection together making it wearable for the highstreet but still the brilliant and beautiful couture vibe that we all know and Love from Elie Saab.
Last night was the biggest night in British Music, or at least that’s what we’re always lead to believe.
Most year’s watching the Brits, I leave feeling underwhelmed at the winners but this year, I feel that a few better artists won awards such as Emili Sandé, Beyoncé and Rag’n’Bone Man.
The best performances of the evening (In my opinion) were Bruno Mars (Vocally the best performance – Sexual references), Ed Sheeran and Stormzy (Ngl, I dropped my phone when Stormzy came out) and Emili Sandé.
No one else’s performance even came close to theirs. Yes, the Chris Martin Tribute to George Michael was emotional and moving, and Yes, The Coldplay and Chainsmokers collaboration was a surprise but not as surprising as Stormzy and Ed Sheeran – considering I dropped my phone, it is still alive though, thanks for your concern!
I hope you enjoyed the brits and if you didn’t there is always something good to laugh at like the house falling off stage during Katy Perry’s performance. Missed it? Well, here you go, I’ve got you covered!
Valentine’s day is the romantic day of the year so, therefore, it is another excuse just to get glammed up.
This tip is to show you how to have brilliant style at a steal of a price. I hope that this not only helps you look beautiful on the outside but feel beautiful on the inside.
Look 1 – The Classic that never gets old, The Little Black Dress
There seem to be an endless possibility of ways to wear LBD’s, with different textures, colour accents and materials. The key to wearing something simple (Well, anything really) and rocking it is confidence. The more time you spend investing in making yourself more confident, the more radiant and beautiful you will feel and will become.
Look 2 – Who wears the trousers?
If you don’t find dresses flattering for you, never fear, the alternatives are here. You can often create really conservative or quite edgy looks with trousers, jeans and jumpsuits. The best fashion recommendation I can make is to make it your business to find the balance between style and comfort. It is all well and good looking bomb on your date or to go out with your girlies but if it gets time to get turnt on the dancefloor, it is pointless having an outfit that you cannot move in. Be wise with your fashion choices.
Lois Lace Trim Skinny Leg Jumpsuit in Khaki. £20 from Boohoo. Wear this with the Boutique Maya Sequin Bomber Jacket with Varsity rib for £25. The combination of these pieces along with a nude pair of shoes creates a militant look showing that you’re willing to fight for this love. The lace detailing and sequins add more femininity whilst the khaki and green tones show power and grace. Be ready to walk like a champion in this outfit.
Boutique Maya Sequin Bomber with Varisty rib. £25 from Boohoo
Look 3 – Keep it casual
Not all dates or nights out are traditional so always have a more causal alternative ready. Just because an outfit is more casual and comfortable does not mean it’s time to skimp on style. The secret to keeping it casual is accessorise, accessorise, ACCESSORISE!
Louise Pleated Chiffon Flippy short. £12 from Boohoo. Take a simple white vest and black short combo to the next level. Whether you’re having a picnic date on a hill top or horse riding for the first time, you can wear a white cami top with these black pleated shorts, black sequin Bomber Jacket and Black Fedora. This will keep you looking cute and it is a practical outfit which allows for a lot of movement.
Hana Sequin Bomber Jacket. £18 from Boohoo
Lola Ribbon Band Fedora. £10 from Boohoo
The Next look is loosely based on Roxxsaurus’ recently look on Instagram for her latest video which will be released tonight.
Ushi Cold Shoulder Shirt dress. £18 from Boohoo. The idea behind this look is two looks in one. Sometimes, with a whole day of romance planned or a whole day of fun with friends, you can’t find time to change into a more formal outfit. My solution is to wear your dress as a jacket during the day. The day look : Black Wrap front high neck crop top with blue denim shorts and sturdy above the knee boots. Then the night look: Fully button up the shirt dress and place the Corset lace up belt around your waist and add some jewellery to complete the look.
Lily Corset Lace Up Belt. £12 from Boohoo
Jessie Wrap Front High neck Crop top. Only £10 from Boohoo.

Starting with Sabina Saga, (Below) her SS17 Dynasty collection was absolutely show-stopping.
In an Instagram post, Sabina Saga wrote about her latest collection:
“I am so happy to announce the official release of my new collection inspired by my Ethnic Roots, made in honor of the country where I was born-Kazakhstan. This is a great honor, but also a huge responsibility to represent my Homeland at international contests. Thanks everyone for the love and support! ❤️”
Sabina Saga’s talent, passion and sheer creativity makes her designs even more captivating. Her use of 3D printing is highly commendable and I look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.
