OFFICE @ Henley Royal Regatta #outofoffice15

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

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.

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.

Girl next door Emma Stone and Oscar winner Cate Blanchett both opted for some black pointed heels like our classic On Tops that complimented their porcelain pins and black cocktail dresses by Oscar De La Renta and Alexander McQueen.

Newcomer Rooney Mara  also wore McQueen and German bombshell Diane Kruger wore a pale blue, embellished Dolce and Gabbana dress. They both kept things simple with some minimal nude, strappy heels as to not take the attention away from their dresses. Get the look with our Priscilla heel.

Bad boy Colin Farrell looked every inch the movie hunk in his grey three-piece suit and his shirt open just enough to make the girls blush. He paired his summer suit with some classic brogues like our premium Poste Montrelle.

Oscar winner Natalie Portman looked like a little black swan in her Rodarte dress, that she matched with some cute black heels like our Pretty stiletto.

Best Dressed Wedding Guest

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

It’s that time of year again where you have to start planning your outfit for maybe 1 or more friend’s weddings and that usual panic starts to creep up.

You don’t want to upstage the bride but lets face it, you want to get pretty close. Having the outfit and shoes decided will give you time to perfect the hair and make up and less time freaking out whilst crying in front of your wardrobe on the day.

bestdressedwedding

If you like to play it safe with the outfit then go with a plain colour (not cream, white or ivory) and make a statement with the shoes. Stand-out styles like the cut out Petite and sheer Premium Mesh heels are a great match with a simple shift dress or midi A line skirt and cami combo.

For more casual beach and countryside weddings then a wooden block heel like the Winnie or a glitzy sandal like the Ontario are your go-to styles. Pair with a cute floral tea dress or a maxi skirt and a bardot style top for a retro 70’s vibe.

For the girls who aren’t afraid of losing their stilettos in the grass, the slingback Pin Up heel in a summer pastel colour is a classic occasion shoe. Wear it pin-up style with a tight fitting dress or midi skirt and a high neck top with backless detail. As the heels do all the talking, keep the hair and accessories simple with some chic drop earrings and a low side bun.

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.

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.

OFFICE Muse’s: – Meet Fabienne

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

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.

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!

Office x Breast Cancer Care

Monday, September 29th, 2014

OFFICE has supported Breast Cancer Care for the past four years and last October we raised a record breaking £69,000 to support this worthy charity.

We managed to raise this money in many ways, with customer donations in store, staff fancy dress days and a Bake Off in OFFICE HQ. But the most successful was our special edition Breast Cancer Awareness Month shoe and this year we have 3 styles! These three party inspired shoes have come just in time for the party season and there is a style to suit all with a classic flat, strappy mid and pointy stiletto.

The Cecilia Toe Cap Ballerina features a sparkling pink glitter upper with Parisian style quilting and a patent black toe cap, perfect with a pretty black prom dress.

The Je’ Taime mid heel has a fuchsia pink suede, strappy upper with an ankle buckle fastening. This minimal heel is easy to wear with anything from dresses to smart cigarette trousers.

The On Tops stiletto is one of our all time favourites at OFFICE and this special edition version features a pale pink metallic upper with patent stiletto heel and is best paired with a fitted dress or dressed down with ripped boyfriend jeans.

OFFICE-for-Breast-Cancer-Care

With one in eight women now diagnosed with breast cancer, many of OFFICE’s customers and employees have had a loved one face this brutal disease. That’s why Breast Cancer Care – the only UK-wide specialist support charity – is so important to us. So, this October, OFFICE is going to start fundraising once again! The 3 special edition shoes will be on sale online and in-store and  the staff will be doing their bit too! The money raised will ensure Breast Cancer Care can continue to provide its emotional support network, specialist nurses and local services for free.

Laura says: “I was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2012 at 22 years old. I had to have a double mastectomy and reconstruction, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. I used Breast Cancer Care’s website which was really helpful, it was a place to find information I could trust. Thank you OFFICE for promising to raise even more money for this amazing charity, with your help they can support other women just like me.

The Cecilia and On Tops will be available to buy from the 1st October and the Je’Taime is coming soon! 50% of the shoe sales + VAT go to Breast Cancer Care.

You can also show your support by donating in store or buying this year’s Breast Cancer Care pin which is only available online.
