Street Style

Clearly not upsetting the rhythm, Noisettes female vocalist, Shingai Shoniwa showed us how to broach the gap between A/W ’09 to S/S ’10 by swapping blazers and harem pants for hot, hot pantaloons whilst still retaining the regal 80s power dressing stance. Nipped waist, sculptured shoulders and statement hair complete this look.

Shy Sailor – Navy blazer with white trim. Check. High Waist shorts with brass buttons. Check. One large statement neck piece. Check. We love the attention to detail and the pillar-box red tights that complete this cute ensemble. All aboard! ...

Dear Deirdre! – Loving this look! This outfit build shows how a hybrid of different pieces can work so well! With 90s stonewash denim, black blazer and satchel (huge trend accessory for S/S) – this is conservatism masqueraded by a laissez-faire plume feather shawl piece. The glimpse of leopard print spots a la top and shades make this a puurfect look.

What’s the time Mr. Wolf? - Big furry coats are set to be a staple style for A/W due to Burberry, Gucci and Chanel – this piece is worn in comfort, hiding harem pants whilst displaying what looks like a coral clutch.

A focus on the statement furry coat, with a sneak preview of a S/S trend delight, stonewash denim and an All Saints tee. The outfit is topped off with a nod to an upcoming autumn style- velvet bow head pieces- Gorgeous!

Bottoms up! – 3 statement coats, all big, all furry – Yet these are three tres different looks. 1) Skinnies and Heels 2) Wet Look Leggings and Shoe Boots 3) Leggings and relaxed boots, mix it up to find a style ….

She's my digital girl!

From Armani to Escada , Basso and Brooke to Browns, Karen Millen to M&S , fashion lines whether high end or high street are delivering an evolution of style. Its given name is geek or cyber chic due to its pixilated take on digital prints and graphics. A decade after McQueen’s post-modern vision in his aptly titled A/W ’99 collection Weird Science –inspired by hyper-reality- designers Basso and Brooke opened the lid on an explosion of intense colour, sculptured silhouettes and digitally-inspired tailored blazers in their S/S 10 collection Science and Fiction. This key season trend is all about mixing nature with the synthetic, with Williamson’s and the late McQueen’s S/S 10 shows being stream-lined on to the high street in beautiful vibrant shades and amazing, abstract prints. An apocalyptic vision of the future or just refreshing rainbow prints? The future seems bright, so go forth, be bold, and join the cyber tribe in this final frontier of fashion.
