We are all about the mule and the sling-back this Spring/Summer but why should the heels get all the fun. Our collection of new flats are all business in the front and party in the back, ready to flaunt your tan on sunny days.
This delicate, feminine style of flat is easy to wear and can be worn smart for work or dressed down for those shopping till you drop days.
The pointed Luther or Laguna looks great paired with some black cigarette trousers, slim tee and a long duster coat or dressed down with some high waisted mom jeans and a cropped jumper.
The grungy style London and Lava are great for the girl who’s wardrobe is full of chunky platforms, Dr Marten’s and Vagabonds. Pair these heavy-tred sling-backs with some super skinnies and a high neck crop top or add some feminine flair with a cute smock dress and some ankle socks.
The Nike women’s “Look of the City” Collection comes into full bloom with six vibrant variants of the Nike Air Max 1 Ultra. The collection is influenced by distinct style capitals: London, Milan, New York, Paris, Shanghai, and Tokyo.
Six new Nike Air Max 1 Ultra designs feature three distinct patterns, each inspired by representative flowers and local heritage of two cites. The prints form individual colour schemes that define each city.
New York and Paris
New York’s roses and Paris’s famed lilies make up the first pack.
New York is displayed in a monochromatic black, white and grey palette, fitting of the cities landscape and NYC’s love of the colour black. Its Parisian counterpart takes the decoration in blushing pastels reminiscent of Marie Antoinette.
London and Tokyo
London’s rose and Tokyo’s famed cherry blossoms make up the second instalment.
A indigo blue colourway represents the Japanese capital, while London receives a fiery red-and-white treatment atop a black background to reflect its gothic architecture.
Milan and Shanghai
Finally, Milan’s lilies and Shanghai’s plum blossoms are matched in delicate balance for the third and final instalment.
A golden bronze tone, evocative of the Italian Renaissance, highlights the Milan Air Max 1 Ultra, in contrast with a saturated monochromatic red on the Shanghai version.
All trainer models have t-shirts to match the pattern and feature the intitial of each city.
The Nike Air Max 1 Ultra “Look of the City” pack will launch on Saturday 7th March and will be available online and in selected stores.
Yesterday saw the end of London Fashion Week where the best of British design talent showcased their AW15 collections and the fash pack were out in full force giving us styling tips for the new season.
Despite the cold British weather, stylists, bloggers and journalists were dressed to impress as they hung out around Somerset House waiting for the next show to begin.
Sportswear was a big hit this year and everywhere you looked you could see the classic shell-toe adidas Superstar on men and women. Dressed up with tailored trousers and cocoon coats or dressed down with ripped boyfriend jeans and thick knitwear, the Superstar was a firm fashion favourite.
Points, slip-ons and mules were also dominating the style set this season and it seemed everyone was loving the retro 70s look, opting for camel coats, flares and paisley prints.
To coincide with the launch of LFW on Friday 20th we teamed up with Vans to host a VIP gifting event at the ME hotel, a stones throw from Somerset House and in the heart of all the action. In the evening we took key members of press, plus a load of competition winners to our first #OFFICEHOUSEPARTIESevent at the House of Vans London, find out more about the night here > http://bit.ly/1upyEjJ
On Friday 20th we had the pleasure of attending Jean Pierre Braganza in the main tent at Somerset House and we realised early on we wanted one of everything. Taking his inspiration from fighter jets and film noir the collection consisted of oversized tees, fur trimmed aviator jackets and wide legged slacks. We would wear this power vixen collection with our black Pitch Point mule, Naughty Thigh High boot or Precious shoe boot.
It was an early start on Sunday 22nd as we heading to the Institute of Contemporary Arts on The Mall to attend the Palmer // Harding show and presentation. Wearing our new Lance Monk shoe the models looked like Russian dolls in heavy wool coats, high neck shirts and embroidered dresses with their hair in milk-maid braids.
On Monday evening we attended the Hunter Original show at the Albert Embankment warehouse where Alasdhair Willis put on a visual masterpiece with models walking in amongst cascading water. Giving the feel of a wet British winter the models were wrapped up in thick outerwear, oversized trousers and of course the trusty waterproof rubber welly in many forms.
LFW definately went off with a bang and we cannot wait until next season.
Last night played host to the 87th Academy Awards (Oscars), celebrating the top films, acting and directing talents of the last year.
The film stars graced the red carpet, the girls wearing gorgeous gowns from the likes of Elie Saab, Tom Ford and Givenchy and the guys looking dapper in their immaculate tuxedos.
Beautiful actress Jessica Chastain oozed Jessica Rabbit glamour in her deep navy Givenchy gown and her thigh high split revealed her simple 2 strap navy heels, just like our minimal Parallel high heel.
Best Actor winner Eddie Redmayne also went for navy with a smart Alexander McQueen tuxedo and velvet loafersjust like our Poste Aristocrat, to match the lapels of his jacket.
Fellow Brit Rosemund Pike looked sensational in her crimson Givenchy gown which like Jessica Chastain split up to the thigh to reveal some matching red heels, get the look with our red Swirlheel.
Heart-throb and last years winner of Best Supporting Actor Jared Leto made a style statement in a pastel tuxedo and white mono shoes, get the look with the classic adidas Superstar.
Young actress Emma Stone dazzled in a peridot green Elie Saab gown and matching heels, add a touch of pale green to your wardrobe with our Passion heels.
Hunk of the moment Chris Pine looked every inch the perfect gentleman in a Giorgio Armani suit that he paired with some polished brogues, similar to the Ted Baker Hann Brogue.
Day 3 at NYFW and our spy is still there, bringing the latest and greatest in street-style and the ladies of New York continue to impress with their FROW ready outfits.
Casual ankle boots in warm tonal shades of tan and khaki are prevalent. Our premium Scandinavian brand Ten Points offer plenty of quality leather pieces like this New Toulousse Chelsea boot in cognac. Keeping it comfy in trainers and sweats may not be typical fashion week attire but when worn correctly can exude laid back cool, a classic white leather Converse is perfect for this look.
A colourful trainer like this ReebokPrincess in burgundy can be dressed up with tapered trousers and a fitted jacket. The gorgeous Olivia Palermo was spotted mingling with the elite, flawlessly dressed as usual, sporting a fur stole and 70’s flares. Our Vibrant pointed pumps are Olivia inspired and are perfect for a more comfortable and accessible look.
If like a lot of women you are partial to a bit of height but aren’t brave enough for stilettos try a mid heel in this season’s shade of light grey like our Winona block heel.
To emulate a more daring fashion week goer our slim heeled Promise stiletto in chic rose gold fits right in with the cream of the crop. Thigh high boots are definitely still keeping legs warm this spring, our best-selling Naughty stretch boot is back in stock, wear with a short leather dress and statement handbag.
Here at OFFICE we have sent a spy to the streets of NYC to document the latest in street-style trends from this season’s fashion week. The avid fashionistas have braved the cold to display their diverse choice of style, in particular, footwear. Kim K has clearly been channelled this season as heels are out in force, for a similar look try our trusty On Tops in the summer shade of hot pink or our sleek pointed Pitch mules in black leather.
Getting from show to show can be tiring, a comfortable shoe is paramount, trainers were evident this year, our minimal Libra oozes cool. Ankle boots have smoothly made the transition from winter to spring, pair our Cockney with culottes and a bomber for the ultimate IT girl look. It wouldn’t be spring without some pastel hues, our Vendetta in mint combines a feminine shade with boyish brogue detailing.
Valentines day brings out the romantic in most of us, so it’s only right that you treat yourself to a pair of gorgeous heels this Feb 14th. Red isn’t a must, but will make you stand out from the crowd, as will a cut-out effect stiletto.
On Friday 20th February we are hosting our first #OFFICEHOUSEPARTIES event at the House of Vans London and can now exclusively reveal our headline act, Kyla La Grange.
Kyla La Grange is a singer-songwriter from London whose unique folky, electronia sound and pastel coloured mermaid locks makes her stand out as a one to watch this year. With 2 albums already under her belt this songstress has made quite an impact on the music scene, we caught up with Kyla ahead of the exclusive gig to find out why she can’t wait to perform at the House of Vans and her plans for 2015.
1. Have you visited the House of Vans before?
No I haven’t, I’ve heard good things though…
2. Are you a Vans fan? What is your favourite pair?
Yes, I had a very beloved pair of Vans Authentic skate shoes when I was a teenager and I wore them for years until my feet had worn through the end and they fell apart. I’ve just been looking at some of the new stuff though and it looks great, I especially love the Sk8 Hi’s.
3. So this is OFFICE’s first House Party at the House of Vans, do you have any funny house party stories?
Um, my friend had a house party a couple of years ago that she billed as fancy dress (I mean like the invite said fancy dress and everything) so me and two of my friends went all out, fake moustaches, wigs, everything, and when we opened the door about 50 people wearing normal clothes just stared at us and then started giggling. Pretty much no one else was in fancy dress.
4. Have you got anything exciting planned for 2015? New album? A tour?
I just finished touring my second album so this year is all about writing. I’m collaborating with a few different people at the moment which has been really interesting for me because I never used to like collaborating but now I do.
5. Describe your style in 3 words?
Scruffy glittery magpie.
6. Who are your style icons?
Natasha Khan, Grimes, Charlotte Free and FKA Twigs.
7. What first influenced you to become a musician?
I don’t know really, I was just always writing little songs and stories from when I was a kid. I just liked it. I liked making stuff on my own.
8. What song have you got on repeat on your Spotify playlist?
Sean Paul – Temperature
9. Describe your first gig – who did you go see, how old were you, where was it?
I think I was about 14, I went to see this very earnest slightly emo American rock band called ‘Live’ who I was totally obsessed with, at Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Still have the hoodie.
10. Name 3 things you couldn’t live without?
Baked beans, my dog and my running trainers.

Last night had the film stars out looking their best at the BAFTAS in London.
London saw the best of acting talent walk the red carpet, and of course national treasure David Beckham, looking his dapper self as always. David rocked his perfect English gent look with a smart tuxedo and polished lace ups, like our Poste Azzurri.
Keira Knightly looked every inch the English Rose in her gorgeous Giambattista Valli dress which she paired with some classic black points, like out Premiere Slingbacks.
Julianne Moore was wearing the colour of February, red, her gorgeous Tom Ford dress made her look lik the ultimate screen siren and we like to think she was wearing our fave Valentines heels Passion under her gown.
