SAG Awards 2015

Last night saw the superstars hit the red carpet for the Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG).

Dressed to impress, the stars looked their best in designer gowns and tuxedos to honour the great acting skills amongst them in 2014.

Our favourite Game of Thrones actors were there and looking a little smarter than their usual attire on set. Heart-throb Kit Harington also known as Jon Snow was dressed in traditional black tie with some formal high shine shoes. Young actress Maisie Williams, also known as tough-cookie Ayra Stark looked gorgeous in her red lace cocktail dress and paired it with some gold pointed stilettos. Get her look with our On Tops heels, we have one to match every outfit.

Black was a popular gown choice this year and both Rosemund Pike and Emma Stone looked stunning in their peek-a-boo dresses, which was great for us as we got to peek at their shoes! Emma went for a minimal heel like our Parallel Sandal and Rosemund opted for a classic black court, but we would love to see her in our feisty Parisian Lace Up heel.

Winter Sun

The snow has finally hit most of the UK and the rest of us are moaning about how cold it is every morning. However there is a lucky few who are escaping the winter weather and jetting off to a tropical destination.

Whether its a paradise island in Thailand, a travelling adventure in Brazil or a party trip to Australia, you need to make sure you are packing all the essentials, which obviously means…the perfect shoes.

For days in the city and wandering around the markets, arm your feet with some lightweight Converse All Star Hi’s or a metallic Lily Loafer which will look great with a tan.

When lounging by the pool or topping up your tan on the beach, it is all about the slider sandal, easy to wear and throw on and off when walking to and from the beach bar. The new Oblix and Orlando sandals will be your holiday bestie and a sunny day wouldn’t be complete without a trusty pair of super comfy Birkenstocks.

For chilled evenings at a nice restaurant then a cute pair of Oceania sandals will look great with your summer dress and brightly coloured toenails.

Superstar Girls: adidas Originals x Anti Agency Superstar Party

On Tuesday night we were lucky enough to head down to the adidas Originals store in Carnaby Street to attend the Superstar girls party, marking the 45th anniversary of the Superstar trainer.

To celebrate the SS15 Superstar launch, adidas has teamed up with casting agency Anti-Agency to form a new girl gang of alternative models.

The trainer trend shows no signs of abating and with the creative help of a female-only studio, adidas Originals presents the new year’s big style movement, to celebrate the iconic footwear institution that is the Superstar.

150115_Blog

There was live music from PANES as well as a DJ set from the amazing Neneh Cherry (mum to Tyson Mcvey from PANES!). Digifairy set up a booth where you could play around, making your own Superstar GIFs and the Meringue Girls provided special Adidas-themed sweet treats of pastel, mermaid like wonderfulness.

We already have got our pair of Superstars ready to take on 2015, the year of the SUPERSTAR.

LCM : London Mens Collections AW15

Yesterday saw the end of the London Collections: Mens AW15 and the designers, models and celebs were out in full force at the shows and presentations.

London is slowly becoming the go to place for men’s fashion and we saw a mix of 70s silhouettes, oversized, sporty looks and baby soft fabrics. KTZ and Astrid Anderson both took on some military styling this season, opting for oversized, utilitarian shapes. Astrid’s collection echoed Russian rebel with large fur hats, chunky knitwear and hiking style Nike sneakerboots.

JW Anderson and Oliver Spencer went a bit 70’s with tan and camel colour palettes, using soft suedes and shearling panelling. Boxy jackets and wide leg trousers were paired with hi shine loafers and smart monk shoes.

Playful brands Sibling and Moschino went for super bright colour palettes and unusual fabrics for Aw15. Since Jeremy Scott has arrived as creative director at Moschino there are no fashion boundaries. The catwalk show saw Tarzan like leopard print shorts, yeti fur boots and PVC trousers, not to mention an in house snow storm. Sibling went all pink with big tracksuits, faux fur panelling and giant teddy bears as accessories.

Outside the shows, the street style was just as impressive with the fash pack out to be papped in their classic and crazy outfits. The adidas Superstar is definitely back and set to be huge this year, which was evident in the amount of fashion followers we saw in them. Loafers, Chelsea boots and monk shoes were the favourite smart styles this season and were reflected in the catwalk shows, so it would seem these will carry through until AW15.

Military style Timberlands and casual Clarks Original Wallabee’s were spotted in many a fashion show queue. Guys were pairing theirs with turn up, dark jeans and thick knits.

Last night played host to the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, which saw some of Hollywood’s biggest stars out in full force wearing some gorgeous designer gowns.

It wasn’t just the gowns and tailored suits that had us green with envy, the classic footwear choices that many of the stars opted for had us desperate to get the look.

Actress Emma Stone went for the feminine classic, the pointed stiletto whereas our favourite girl-next-door Jennifer Aniston opted for a sexy thigh split dress with minimal 2 strap heels.

Golden Globe winner Eddie Redmayne kept it smart and slick in a bow tie and velvet blazer and matched it with a smart brogue. Singing sensation Lorde went for a masculine style in an oversized suit but added feminine touches with a crop top and pointed flats.

I Work Out Like This

After a month of over indulgence and gym neglect, it is time to get back in shape and get fit and healthy for 2015.

The thought of stepping back into the gym or preparing yourself for a run in the freezing cold seems pretty daunting but a new year means a new start and exercise really does make you feel better (mentally at least).

After Christmas we always feel a bit rubbish with post party blues, too many carbs in our system and having to get up early again but January gives us the perfect excuse to gather the girls for a group gym sesh.

Fresh fruit and veg are your new best friend and with loads of healthy recipes out there, it is time to banish those leftover sausage rolls and mince pies.

To kick start your workout, you need the perfect excuse……new stuff!

The sportswear giants are here to help with the latest in gym wear and running trainers to have you looking your best whilst your sweating like crazy on a spin bike.

For dedicated gym bunnys and running enthusiasts, the Nike Zoom Fit Agility and Nike Lunar Cross Element have the built in technology to help you get the most out of your workout. These lightweight trainers have an adaptive fit and cushioned soles for soft impact when pounding the treadmill or doing circuits.

For the girls who like to take things a little easier with weight training, a bit of cardio and some calorie burning classes then the Nike Air Max Thea or New Balance 574 are you ideal companion. These cool and comfy trainers will take you to and from the gym with ease and are great for dress down weekends paired with jeans and a big jumper.

Sports bras are a must have gym essential to keep everything in its place when doing jumping jacks and the Nike Pro Bra should be first into your gym bag. Shorts and leggings will also make up your workout outfit and its always good to throw in a fleece for winter runs in the park.

OFFICE Muses: – Meet Thomas

Let us introduce to you to our OFFICE Muse, Thomas Hawking a musician and model.

He likes to keep things simple when it comes to his personal style and his footwear consists of well made classics. A self confessed style hunter, he is determined to track down something he really wants and make it his own. A rapper by trade he will often be found at his favourite rap clubs spitting bars but he doesn’t fit the rapper stereotype by any means, favouring a smart, neutral style when he performs. On dress down days he lives in his leather desert boots and adidas Superstars.

Check out Thomas’ Muse page and how to get his look here.

Why is office the brand for you?

I feel that OFFICE always has a consistent collection and always ticks the boxes when it comes to men’s footwear.

How do you shop?

I keep my eyes open for specific things and when I see something I like I style it to make it my own. We are lucky to live in a time that if we see something we like we can hunt it out and usually find it.

What are your top picks to get you through January?

With it being pretty cold this time of year I would definitely suggest lots of layers, I often wear a thin bomber jacket under a thick wool Harris Tweed jacket when it is really cold. Some hard wearing Timberlands or leather desert boots are a must for everyday.

What do you wear on stage how does it differ from your daytime look?

When I’m rapping I like to wear smart stuff and keep thing neutral, simple and well made. Wearing the right clothes and shoes always helps to make you feel at ease on stage and I like to add a unique spin on classic looks. Most people associate rappers with sportswear and baggy clothes and don’t get me wrong I live in my trainers sometimes but I also like to wear some nice loafers or leather boots when I’m performing.

How important is footwear when building your outfit?

I have quite a specific idea of what I like so footwear is very important to me as it completes an outfit. Whether I am staying casual with a desert boot or mixing in some sportswear with an adidas Superstar, the whole look needs to work together.

What are your style resolutions for 2015?

For me it is finding key pieces that will see you through as I’d rather invest in quality. It would be great to find 4 or 5 shoes that will see me though until summer, I like transitional styles, such as desert boots, trainers and some suede lace ups that are good throughout the seasons.

OFFICE Muse’s: – Meet Fabienne

Let us introduce you to our OFFICE Muse, stylist, blogger, presenter and DJ extraordinaire Fabienne Hebrard.

This style savvy multi-talent is definitely an East London girl at heart, constantly rummaging through vintage shops and supporting up and coming designers to use for work or just to dress herself. With mermaid, My Little Pony locks, Fabienne is not afraid to take fashion risks and mixes bright colours with edgy, key pieces to create her unique style. She loves some statement metallic heels to wow the crowds at her gigs and can’t live without some chunky cleated sole ankle boots for everyday.

Check out Fabienne’s Muse page and how to get her look here.

fabienne_03

During a break from shooting we caught up with Fabienne to hear what inspires her and get some style tips for 2015.

Who is your style muse? I love bad-ass women who ooze confidence like Juliette Lewis and Jennifer Lawrence – for me style is about personality as well as wearing something with a bit of an edge.

January is a tricky time of year style-wise, what are your top tips?

My top tips for January is to wear something that will be transeasonal. With the un-predictable weather, it’s best to invest in an ankle boot. It’s a classic style that can be dressed down or up and take you through different types of weather. Even an open toe can be worn with cute socks or tights when the weather is a little colder. Layering is key!

How does your work look differ from your down time look?

Even though I’m tall I do love heels, so I’ll often be in a wedge or cleated sole even in my down time. Although often when I’m running to different PRs for styling jobs, be it pulling clothes for a shoot, a DJ gig or  presenting job, I do love a good practical pair of trainers, plimsolls or ankle boots to get me around faster.

What do you new things do you invest in and one thing you can’t live without?

I can’t live without black boots. I have so many pairs and am forever buying new pairs! As I don’t want to wear them out but always seem to do so (dammit!).

When I invest in newness I like to go for something that will go with most of my wardrobe. Whether its black, white or a standout piece of footwear like metallic or holographic it needs to be hardwearing for all the different weathers we go through on a daily basis in London, particularly at this time of year.

Who and what inspires you in fashion? Street style inspires me everyday. When I’m out and about around where I live in Shoreditch and particularly during London Fashion Week, people really go all out and its nice to see a real mix of crazy and cool styles. I like mixing the two.

What magazines, blogs and people do you take inspiration from?

I subscribe to Dazed & Confused so if I don’t get a chance to buy a magazine I know that’s coming through my door and its my go-to for new talent in fashion & music. I love Tirade for their shoots, Nylon online and Hypetrack & Pinboard blog for music.

Do your friends inspire you? Yes, a few of my best friends have their own fashion label so its always nice to see what trends their looking to and designing around for the coming seasons. I’m inspired by all my friends confidence and drive in whatever they do.

How important is footwear when building your outfit?

Footwear is super important as I’ll often start an outfit based on my footwear and work the clothes around it as it is an important part of what look I’m going to channel that day.

What brands inspire you?

I’m really into supporting young British designers and try to represent that in my work – be it wearing it for a gig or using them to style. I’m in love with British brands Sera Ulgar, LulaLoop, Gemma Goldstone & An Original Leeroy for full on 90s vibes as well as LA brands like Tiger Mist and Aussie based brands such as Nixikillick & Discount Universe. I love vintage finds from Beyond Retro & LFF Boutique.

What are your style resolutions?

I’ve been investing more in key pieces rather than buying something that will only last a season so I want to continue that in 2015. That and my obsession with metallics!
