Lee Never Wasted Carrier Bag

This bag from Lee is possibly one of the coolest and most ingenious carrier bags I have seen in quite a while…maybe even ever. With most brands now going eco-friendly with their carrier bags, Lee have gone a step in a slightly cooler direction by making their bags reusable in a load of different ways. The bag’s creation add’s a fun element to their message of being eco-friendly and is a lot more inventive than a lot of their competitors and other retailers solutions. Instead of listing each way the bag can be reused it is easier to just show … Continue reading Lee Never Wasted Carrier Bag

Fred Perry Laurel Wreath Collection by Richard Nicoll

The Spring/Summer 2011 Fred Perry Laurel Wreath collection by Richard Nicoll is due to hit stores on Monday 24th January.  The inspiration behind Richard Nicoll’s first collection for Fred Perry is Ken Russell’s iconic portraits of 1950’s teddy girls, with their boot-lace ties, drainpipes, pompadour haircuts, cigarettes and brooding attitude. In reference to the brooches and pearl’s used within the collection Nicholl states, “…we referenced my acid colour blocked SS09 sportswear influenced collection and added old-fashioned elements like pointelle cardigans and mother of pearl laurel brooches for branding. I also mixed sport jersey with lurex piqué and brocade cottons to create a clash of sport … Continue reading Fred Perry Laurel Wreath Collection by Richard Nicoll

Lee Skinny Jeans

Being a huge fan of package design this campaign from Lee caught my eye! In their aim to be the brand to go to for skinny jeans they have created pretty unique packaging for each pair of jeans sold. The ‘skinny bags’ aren’t only the perfect shape bag for a pair of skinny jeans but a great form of promotion for the brand…letting other consumers know exactly what you have bought and where from. The bags are also a great in-store visual merchandising tool and talking point.   Continue reading Lee Skinny Jeans

Mulberry does Glastonbury!

To celebrate the launch of Glastonbury festival photographer Venetia Dearden’s book of imagery entitled Glastonbury Another Stage Mulberry’s flagship London store has been transformed for an exhibition of her work, and it looks rather cool…but would we expect anything less from Mulberry?!   The book which was part-funded by Mulberry includes pages and pages (386 to be precise)  of great photographs from every aspect of the Glastonbury festival, including crowds, caravans, food stalls, mud, and most importantly…the people!! The imagery of people from the festival spans over the last 6 years and is all shot in a white photographic studio … Continue reading Mulberry does Glastonbury!

Chanel Temporary Tattoos

Following on from Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection which saw models rocking branded temporary tattoos, the Fashion House is releasing them on to the retail market on March 1st. ‘Les Trompe L’Oeil de Chanel’ is a set of 55 individual transfers, and will be sold at Selfridges for £49, and are sure to be a sell out. I’m not really a huge fan of tattoo’s, but the transfers used on the Chanel catwalk models manage to look somewhat elegant and ladylike when teamed with Lagerfelds gorgeous designs. If applied in conjunction with this type of outfit i’m sure the tattoo’s will be a huge hit! We all know … Continue reading Chanel Temporary Tattoos

H&M to Launch Website

With pretty much every high street and designer brand having their own transactional website H&M have been behind the trend for quite a few years now, even though they do have their own non transactional website which has an Online Magazine, Style Guide, Top 5, Interactive Fashion Studio and sooo much more (www.hm.com). There is no doubt that their transactional website will be rather cool, especially if the incorporate many aspects which they already have on the current website…their Interactive Fashion Studio would be a massive selling point giving consumers the opportunity to outfit build before actually purchasing, a definate sales … Continue reading H&M to Launch Website
