How Real

How Real


This set focuses on how impact can be made through simplicity. Taking and mixing luxurious fabrics and basic colour palette, we have created a modest daytime looks with a certain head-turning appeal. To create a dynamic twist, this set has included a specific mix of both body contouring and draping silhouettes, mixing lines to create an interest beyond this mix of fabrics and is utilised to enhance this beautiful simplicity.

I am lucky enough to have been chosen to blog for the this year’s SS13 Bristol Fashion Week, taking place from Monday 18th March. The BFW is set to showcase new Spring / Summer  collections from both luxury and high street brands featured in the Mall, Cribbs Causeway. Providing a platform for the Malls new Season, the anticipated trends include updated pastel colour palette, the return of floral brights and a ‘white-wash’ over hall. Less unpredictably and more excitingly, the inspiration for many collections this season will see the continuation of 50’s glamour, 20’s silhouettes, and a forever cool, vintage Parisian feel. These inspirations were infiltrated into the many AW campaigns, and its success will remain a very prominent feature in Spring / Summer.

Updates expected for Spring / Summer - A bright colour palette, a blend of luxurious fabrics, dropped hems, incredibly feminine silhouettes; hopefully all presented with a refreshing and directional twist.

AND what about men’s style? Incorporating the muted colour palette, a combination of different fabrics and powerful, yet refreshingly ‘fresh’ silhouettes? I am hoping for Mad Mad meets Rock ‘n’ Roll with cool hints of spring. Nevertheless, it is always an awe-inspiring show for me, here are some of my highlights from the BFW SS12 Runway!

The muted, delicate colour palette featured in this set is perfectly balanced with the mixture of bespoke Italian leather, essential soft modal jersey and fine yarns, making more directional yet effortless spring looks.

The combination of clean and fluid lines of the pieces featured make for flattering silhouettes whilst the updated finishes such as the hand finished metalwork on the leather and the subtle focal points of the jersey make for a creatively cool appeal.
