All that’s glittering this Autumn/Winter

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

The bigger the better should be your motto when it comes to jewellery over the coming months, with designers sending models down the Autumn/Winter 13 catwalks bedecked in statement necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets. The pieces we’ll be rocking this winter aren’t just accessories, they’re the centrepieces of our ensembles. Just add a LBD or plain top and jeans to any of the below and you’ll be ready to go.

Chunky chains

If you’ve kept hold of those chunky gold chains you rocked in the 90’s, now is the time to get them out. Chanel sent its models down the Autumn/Winter catwalks with thick gold, silver and gunmetal chains adorning their necks and wrists and since then everyone from Rita Ora to Lily Collins and Rihanna have been seen embracing the trend.

Chandelier earrings

Chandelier earrings were a hot favourite at Autumn/Winter 13 fashion weeks, with Balmain’s fun 80’s inspired plastic pendant style earrings catching many people’s eyes. Ralph Lauren put a more elegant slant on the trend, sending models down the runway in Baroque style chandelier earrings glittering with gemstones.

Statement crosses

Cross necklaces are another 90’s throwback which are making a repeat appearance this season. Dolce & Gabbana embraced oversized Byzantine crosses, featuring them on necklaces, earrings and belts, while Anna Sui teamed her colourful crosses with long beaded chains.

Oversized brooches

Brooches are back and if you don’t have any yourself, you’re sure to find some hiding in your mum or Gran’s jewellery box. Emanuel Ungaro used over-sized, diamante brooches in his Autumn/Winter collection while Robert Cavalli teamed eagle-shaped brooches with slick white shirts and chain mail skirts. If you don’t fancy creating pin holes in your clothes, why not try wearing a brooch as a statement hair accessory?

Fun Welly Facts

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

With the weather getting wet and icy, out comes the saviour of winter, the welly. But we don’t want you to dread this event, oh no, so we have collated a load of fun welly facts to lift your festive spirits. Enjoy!

– Oxford and Cambridge boat crews all wear Hunters before and after the race: Oxford in blue boots; Cambridge in green.

– The biggest Hunter ever made was a size 18 for a Derbyshire vet.

– It takes a gallon of custard to fill a size 10 Hunter.

– A Cumbrian farmer’s pig ate her Hunters and didn’t even suffer indigestion.

– Well into the 20th Century, rubber was more valuable than silver.

– Many rubberists ascribe aphrodisiac powers to its pungent smell, now available as a bottled scent from Parisian perfumer Jean Guton!!

– Some people love their wellies so much that they give each pair a name and even have a ‘Welly Naming Ceremony’

– In 1974, Scottish comedian/actor Billy Connolly adopted a comical ode to the boot called ‘The Welly Boot Song’ as his theme tune and it became one of his best-known songs.

– Paddington Bear started wearing his red wellies in 1972 when the first soft toys of the character were produced.

– The Scotch Malt Whisky Society lovingly describes its cask number 41.29 as “the colour of golden syrup with the scent of the inside of a welly boot”.

– A Yorkshire farmer requested a plastic buckle for his Hunters – the rattling kept waking up his wife as he got undressed for bed. A Hunter buckle is made from six separate pieces.

– The boot has also given its name to the welly boot dance, said to have been performed by miners in Africa to keep their spirits up whilst working.

– Hunter even made boots for cows! In the early 90’s Hunter made the Hubble Boot which was a boot specially designed for cows.

Ballerina’s – How To Wear It

Monday, March 19th, 2012
I have had a little look around the office again today to see if I could get a few ideas on how to wear our new ballerina pumps. As luck would have it our girls have come up trumps again…I didn’t doubt them for a second. The girls from our ladies buying department like to accessorise their outfits with loads of jewels to help showcase their favourite flats.
