Burberry Autumn/Winter

I am so excited about this post. I am honored to be on Burberry’s press list and one of the advantages of that is seeing imagery of new campaigns and new seasons well in advance. So when I received an official email from Burberry tosay with their new Autumn/Winter campaign shot by my photographer idol, Mario Testino, I got just a little thrilled.

The images feature new cast members Edie Campbell,  Milly Simmonds, Callum Turner and existing Burberry campaign model Cara Delevingne and paint an enthralling picture of what to expect from this iconic label. Christopher Bailey can do no wrong in my eyes and whatever I see from Burberry…well..it just makes sense for me. I look at the pieces coming down the catwalk at London Fashion week each season and I find myself giving the same response “Ok, Christopher you might just better yourself every season”. Burberry has always been my style especially last S/S when I almost fainted at the sight of nude studded leather jackets and splashes of aquamarine thrown in for good measure.

And in case you want to know why I get so excited about Burberry, here is a look at the A/W 2011 show:

warehouse gets girly

Yesterday Warehouse previewed they’re upcoming Summer collection to the Irish press. Whether you are hitting the beach or strolling around a city for your summer va-ca, this collection will answer your prayers.

Colourful prints, contrasting with blocks of white with some soft shades like turquoise thrown in, I fell for the range of trends and styles which will suit everyone. Chatting to PR and Marketing Director, Lorraine Pringle, warehouse wanted to not only hit the key trends on the catwalk but do so in a way that the warehouse girl can build a capsule wardrobe with key pieces for the new season. Lorraine’s favourite was the white suit, very Bianca Jagger which makes you want to relive the Studio 54 era! But it’s a nice alternative for the office too!

Maxis are everywhere and I like this great floral print one, it’s so Erdem. And to hit my desire for some colour, this bright yellow dress is an OMG piece. I reckon this dress could also last you to Winter, worn with some black tights, nice coat and flat pumps and accessorise with a beret, you can transform Summer fashion into Winter wonderful.

The collection has started to hit the stores now and will continue to do so over the summer!

If you want to see the full collection, stay tuned to www.stylenation.ie where I get a closer look!

McQ – the image of a collection

McQ is currently featuring a series of photos taken as part of a creative collaboration with London-based photographer Niall O’Brien on the website, http://www.m-c-q.com.

Taken during O’Brien’s road trip across the American Northwest, the images capture the spirit of youth and adventure of McQ.  With small-town America serving as the backdrop and pieces from McQ’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection featured in the photographs, the website will tell the story of these images and road trip through a series of blog posts. Adding to the experience, http://www.m-c-q.com is built on blogging site Tumblr, which adds a social element to the story, allowing followers to share and interact with McQ’s content.
