The ensembles shown here might be better suited for a fashion year rather than a fashion week in order to asses all the wonderful sensibilities at work in London. Like iconic buildings within the city, in our subjects we can see the modern: metallic pants paired sharply with contrasting colors and fabrics (something analogous to the Tate Building); the innovative: an Accordian front fur jacket (like one of the Norman Foster buildings: such as The Swiss Re); of course it being London we also have the classic and the formal, an aesthetic as British as the Houses of Parliment, if slightly less gothic: Elegant lines from head to toe, soft colors. and established forms of dress that look as if they have stood for hundreds of years: beautiful ballet lace shoes, a peter pan collar in fur smartly tied to the top of a coat. A week is never enough to see all of London. Written by Eric Mcentee
In a nutshell it felt like we’d stepped into a world of the “MyEdo” lifestyle. In the heart of London opposite the Ritz at Aura. The scene was set with Escala-Palladio starting the show with day-time multi-tweed blazers and Ricco Shoes. Bring Ubran, heritage back down to earth with R.A.G.S. t-shirts and polo’s. The colour’s all pulsating to the step of the models oozing high-end tradition with youthful fun. Like a Range Rover in the hands of a 17 year old. MyEdo created an intimate atmosphere with pre-drinks and dinner after debuting the designer’s Spring/Summer collections styled by MyEdo, all wearable but classic. Named ‘Introduction to MyEdo’ it welcomed an array of guests from bloggers, editorial, press and retail. The collection was inspired by ‘the English man in new york’ by Sting. From Wool, tweed and other natural fabrics gave the tailored pieces an understated luxury to the classic designs. Chino’s and jean with sharp jackets were featured, while the show stopper was escala – feeling good featuring the evening wear looks. With an army of well-groomed, on trend males in classic garments with quirky hints of uniqueness’s in accessories and details. There were many twists and turns to this collection making it impossible to pin down a few words to describe the event. It took a look at all occasions in men’s everyday scenarios. Refreshing and re-tweaking casual wear to evening glam.
Never ones to shy away from taking risks, these London folk showcase their individual interpretations of the season's new looks. As the cold weather really begins in the English capital, coats are a must for the street and thus the fashionable winter look is created - a warm, oversized jacket paired with opaque tights or skin tight jeans, resulting in a top-heavy silhouette that serves both function and fashion. Other popular winter warmers are the faux fur or shearling scarves and collars that can easily and instantly update your look whilst adding elegance and individuality. Add all that to the current trend for dyed hair in pretty, pastel hues and you are sure to be set for Spring. Written by Holly Griffin.
Again London doesn't fail to impress at the Krankbrother roof party. Mixing vintage-inspired pieces with current trends is a great way to keep your style individual to you whilst staying in front of the fashion race. So with denim shorts worn high and lips painted telephone-box red, these city folk certainly know that anything goes when it comes to styling their looks. The past decade has seen an acceleration in the number of people with tattoos and their increasing acceptability in everyday life - and this gallery is no exception. Alongside that we can also notice a varied and innovative range of hair styles, cuts and colours that further express the forward thinking vibe of the exuberant English capital. // By Holly Griffin / email@example.com With Heidi & Lee Curtiss... After the huge success of our summer roof party in July, we had our 2nd birthday with an even bigger and better roof party on August 20th. The rooftop is an unbelievable space, with incredible 360 views of London - it's the only one of it's kind in the city + took us a long time to find! We are keeping the location top secret due to licensing restrictions - but we will be announcing the venue address the day before the event.
