Guest Blog | Credit Crunch Chic @ Primavera Sound 2015

What could be better than watching bands playing under blazing Spanish sunshine, sangria in hand, sandals on, and not a speck of mud to be seen? As festivals go, Primavera Sound is definitely high up on the comfort agenda; with the music also being something to write home about!

SHOP FESTIVAL

I went to Primavera Sound for the second time this year, and as someone who doesn’t really ‘do’ festivals, it was an exhilarating experience. 4 days of non-stop music, fashion, sights and sounds, celebrating the fifteenth year of the festival held within the incredible architecture of the Parc del Forum on the edge of Barcelona. Set upon such a beautiful location, there are so many perks to a festival like this that it would take me longer than this post allows to list them all, but I’ll try and shoehorn in as many highlights as I can manage!

The festival takes over the city for the last weekend of May and, should you jump on the metro at any given time you are bound to see fellow festival-goers with their wristbands amongst the crowds in the carriages. Unlike many UK festivals, who see their headline acts play by late evening, Primavera’s feeling is all the more laid back, with hot topics listed on our ‘must see’ sheet taking to the stage at 3 or 4 am in many cases. Music starts from late afternoon and once you enter the festival, the 12 different stages ensure that there’s always something or someone to go and watch.

Musical highlights for 2014 included Haim, Future Islands, Follakzoid, factory Floor and The National , and with that in mind, 2015 had a lot to live up to.  The ‘big hitters’ such as Interpol, The Strokes and Caribou were all fantastic, but the beauty of the festival is the opportunity to see bands and artists who aren’t as well known.

The festival itself begins with an opening party on the Wednesday night and continues through until the Sunday with the closing party and these are held at varying locations around the city. There’s a relaxed and very Spanish vibe to the festival and, of course, there is street style in abundance. Comfortable shoes are a must and also a jacket or jumper is essential despite the heat of the day; as soon as the sun sets the breeze coming in from the ocean makes an extra layer necessary.

The beauty of a festival like Primavera Sound is that there’s no camping provision, you have to stay in the city which means a real bed and shower can be yours after a night of partying.

I would thoroughly recommend this festival and I had a fantastic time both of the years I’ve attended. This year we tagged on a few days to our holiday after the festival ended to spend sightseeing in Barcelona and it was just wonderful; I didn’t want to come home. Roll on Primavera Sound 2016!

OFFICE @ Henley Royal Regatta #outofoffice15

Yesterday we had the pleasure of attending Henley Royal Regatta in Oxfordshire on the hottest day of the year. What could be better than watching the rowing races and sipping cold drinks in the glorious sunshine.

Henley_blog_v2

All the guest were in their smartest summer attire, the ladies opting for dresses, heels and hats and the gentleman wearing summer suits, boater hats and Timberland boat shoes.

Accompanying us to this grand event were some key members from menswear press all wearing their fave OFFICE shoes for summer, which included the Pansy Sandal, Garland Block Heel and Soho Heel.

After enjoying the delicious canapés, a 4 course dinner and of course some traditional afternoon tea we sat with our feet in the river cheering on the rowers.

 

The outfits and the beautiful English countryside felt like we had stepped back in time and it was great to see the men’s fashion remaining very traditional at the Regatta. Striped blazers, boater hats, boat shoes and chinos was the outfit of choice for the guys and it was nice to see men dominating the fashion for a change. The woman obviously looked great, but the boys definitely stood out at the Regatta.

The full Regatta look might be a bit extreme for some guys but it is great inspiration for when dressing for other summer events. Boat shoes like our Timberland Exclusive or the classic Heritage 2 Eye are great to pair with chinos and a shirt for garden parties, wedding receptions and posh picnics in the park.

We couldn’t of asked for a more beautiful day surrounded by lovely scenery, it truly was a proper English day out in the countryside.

Taylor Swift @ BST Hyde Park

On Saturday 27th we had the pleasure of attending the Barclays British Summertime Festival in Hyde Park, headlined by pop princess Taylor Swift.

Support acts included John Newman, Ellie Goulding, Vance Joy and Rae Morris who all took to the Great Oak stage and got the crowds dancing in the sunshine.

When Taylor came on stage earlier than scheduled, the crowd went wild. With fans ranging from 6 year olds to grandparents, she proved her worth as the ultimate pop star. Performing some of her classic hits like, I Knew You Were Trouble, Shake it Off and Bad Blood, the singer managed to schedule in many costume changes surrounded by a fantastic all-male dance troupe.

The highlight of the evening came whilst she was performing her hit Style, in which she welcomed onto stage her ultimate girl squad, which included Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Martha Hunt, Serena Williams and of course Cara Delevingne who waved the British Flag.

Mega fans came dressed in perfect pop star style, with flower headbands, boho outfits and plenty of accessories. The die hard fans went as far as to write Taylor song lyrics on their clothing.

Our experience as a Swifty fan girl was definitely a memorable one and we particularly enjoyed dancing to We Are Never Getting Back Together, whilst waving our light up wristband in the air.

Sporty Whites

With Wimbledon fast approaching, we are taking some fashion inspiration from the game and adding some sporty whites to our summer wardrobe.

This year has been all about the sports luxe style and dressing up tailored looks with sportswear and trainers. Clean, white mono trainers and sporty flats are a must have to give your smart look an athletic edge.

blog

Think boxy silhouettes mixed with skin tight fabrics and performance style textures. Classic trainer styles like the Stan Smith and the Adidas Los Angeles are great paired with tapered trousers and an oversized scuba crop top.

Sheer panelling, airtex mesh and draped jersey are the textures you should source to inspire your look. Match a tennis style pleated skirt and a structured white blouse with some pointed Lennon flats or Birkenstock EVA sandals.

Go a bit nineties with an oversized t-shirt dress and a sports jacket, wear with platform Underground Nox trainers or Reebok Classics.

Get Ready for Glasto

The backpack is full, the tent is packed and we are almost ready for a week of fantastic music and culture at the legendary Glastonbury Festival in Somerset.

With headline acts Kanye West, Florence & the Machine and The Who, the festival is set to be an explosive one and we cannot wait to see what everyone is wearing.

Come rain or shine the crowds pull of some weird and wonderful outfits and are usually armed with a pair of trusty Hunter boots or classic Converse to keep them dancing from dusk til dawn.

Here is some of the looks and styles we will be rocking at Glasto this year.

Glamour Woman of the Year Awards 2015

Last night London played host to the annual Glamour Woman of the Year Awards, held at Berkeley Square Gardens.

The event brought out a whole host of celebrities, models and movie stars to honour the top names in music, fashion and TV.

Our favourite looks from the evening were modelled by our very own Brits, Emma Willis, Paloma Faith and Fearne Cotton.

Emma opted for summery two piece in white, that she paired with a pair of mesh points like our Premium Mesh Court, a perfect look for any formal occasion this summer.

Paloma stayed true to her stand-out style in a gorgeous, embellished Dolce & Gabbana dress that she complimented perfectly with her peachy coloured locks and black dorsay points like our Jilly Court.

Mum to be Fearne looked radiant in her girlish red dress that she paired with some strappy black heels like our Sophia Strap. She also had an amazing circular bag that we are extremely jealous of!

We Are FSTVL #outofoffice15

On Saturday we had the pleasure of attending We Are FSTVL 2015 in Upminster, Essex.

The sun was shining and the crowd was loving life at this mega dance festival in the middle of the countryside and we couldn’t wait to get dancing and style spotting.

wearefstvlroundup

The favourite footwear of choice seemed to be the now iconic Nike Air Huarache but there were a few other classic festival faves that we spotted throughout the day.

Guys were loving the white leather Converse All Stars, that they teamed with shorts and a tee for smart summer style. The girls were fans of durable Dr Martens and Hunter boots, that are super easy to wear with pretty much anything and equipped for all weather conditions.

Some of the alternative guys chose some Vans Old Skool’s and boots like our Cookie Desert Boots, going for a slight indie vibe, pairing with skinny black jeans and a white tee.

Some girls were loving the sunshine and opted for cute JuJu jellies that they paired with frilly socks and the fashion forward gals wore some 70’s style shoeboots like our tan Wanderlust.

We had the best time at We Are FSTVL, dancing to big acts like Gorgon City and MK and we will definately be taking some festival style pointers from the crowd. Bring on the rest of the festival season!

See you next year We Are FSTVL
