Designer watch: Carlos Campos

I’ve recently been offered a job to work as a content writer for a menswear fashion website which was the inspiration behind my article. I haven’t written as many menswear articles as I have women’s wear, as I’ve always thought this to be a little out of my comfort zone. But now in spirit of [...]

Leather Is Back!

Seasons come and go, people evolve, but if there’s one thing in life that’s here to stay, that’s fashion trends.   One of my favourite trends of the moment has to be leather… and lots of it! Leather has long been a wardrobe staple for the punk and goth subculture, as well as being prominent [...]

This season it’s not just the girls who have been wooing us with their fancy footwear, there are also hot new footwear trends that the boys can try too.   When thinking about fashion, it’s more than likely that ladies wear will receive the most spotlight, which is why I have chosen to write an [...]

Louboutin Luxury

Elegance, glamour and status… words which can only be used to describe a true style symbol of modern-day fashion.   The shoes of Christian Louboutin are simply iconic, and are individual works of art.

Punk Icon: Yohji Yamamoto

London, Milan, New York, Paris and Tokyo: We all know that the fashion shows which take place every year in these fashion capitals are fantastic for showcasing the latest cutting edge designs.   Some collections stand out more than others, but I have to hand it to Yohji Yamamoto this time, for his new Spring/Summer 2012, [...]

We cannot deny that there [...]

Trick or Treat?

Autumn: Definately my favourite time of year. A lot of excitement can be found in the autumnal season: tumbling leaves, cosy cover-up fashions and the need to go the extra mile while you grab that cinnamon latte in the morning. Not as stifling hot as summer or as bitter cold as winter, autumn has an [...]

Autumn Essentials: Leg Wear

With the new season almost here it’s easy to get carried away with what’s hot on the fashion front. But perhaps the most important addition to our wardrobes for the cold temperatures to come is leg wear and hosiery.   Now, I’m a huge fan of all things related to dressing legs up whether this [...]
