Erdem X H&M Landing 2nd November…

H&M is coming home this winter, with its new collaboration with British designer Erdem set to be released on 2nd November 9am. Erdem might not be as known to you, as H&M’s previous partners ‘Kenzo’ or ‘Karl Lagerfeld” as he’s previously only ever done womenswear, so its a perfect opportunity to grab a piece of record breaking fashion with Erdem’s very first menswear line, just in time for your BF this christmas.

It will be H&M’s 17th designer collaboration, with this year set to be soft, floral, elegant period designs. With Erdem taking influence from his teen memories “So much of the collection was actually quite personal and i found myself reflecting how we used to dress throughout high school”, so this release will not only make you a limited edition fashion owner, but will dress you in youth.

Erdem has also stated his sister was his main muse for this epic Erdem X H&M release, from her “Big Norwegian jumpers my sister used to wear with a tea dress and army boots” The perfect chic combo for this winter…Get ready girls they’re going to sell fast !

And its not just the girls, guys your in this too, with Erdem masterminding his very first mens line its going to be epic! Erdem told the fashion world “Tearing apart each of its components and putting them back together into a complete and timeless wardrobe. Yet it’s still so true to what I do in womenswear. Its contrast between the utilitarian and romantic is what I think I enjoy about it most.”

Because we all know “fashion is about being anything but boring” – Erdem

This Months Wacky Art Furniture

Designed by the artist ‘whatshisname’ – which was inspired by his lack of being able to remember other artists names and the Green Day’s song ‘whatshername‘. Created two sequel pooping dog lamps ‘good boy’ and ‘good puppy’, this bold abstract design has taken the fashion industry by storm, mixing a objected natural act ‘pooping’ with a bold futuristic style…We love it! Contrary to the Londons Art Below Exhibition who refused to see the beauty in the design, banning ‘good boy’ and ‘good puppy’ for being offensive. Whatshisname stated that they were “designed as an item of everyday use that makes user uncomfortable with every use” but the creativity of the product has catered for a high end market selling at £2,600 for ‘Good boy‘ which is available from whatshisnames site.

Who makes art for two reasons:

  1. To celebrate an alternative to the ordinary
  2. Because it’s something i cannot do

 

What I see in Fashion

I know I write a lot of clothing comparisons from luxury clothes to high street brands, so I wanted to do something a little different. ‘What I see in Fashion’ – (soz Brooklyn)

Shopping is any girls love affair, online or in store it’s the feeling, the power of being able to transform yourself into a magazine inspired world. Where one swipe of a card and you can walk away with Italian leather, or cashmere jumpers, so soft you can’t leave until your clutching the glossy bags in your hand. But once the warm glow of the stores are behind you, the vision disappears, and the vivid images of you taking on the world through your luxury purchase disintegrates. Into a overly priced bland jumper- soft, goodness yes. But visionary, no. To be Fashion, you must control the instincts of human comforts in clothing, you have to see fashion as a possession, a beautiful individual design that will make you, you. Its got to be a raw passion not a comfort blanket. That expresses your individuality, not uniformed fashion where your all pushed into dressing alike.

When you next open a magazine, be inspired by the beauty of fabrics and craftsmanship, take in the styles and bold expressions the catwalks create. So when your in the store where beauty is all around you, but not yet on you, your persuaded to remain safe and shop for your comfort zone, not your personality. The store should be viewed as the library of clothing, only in fashion books are always judged by the cover –

Fashions highest designer denim …

1. Gucci

With Denim once again re gracing the store windows Fashions highest hot brands are re making the double denim look with daring textures and bold embroidery. Gucci has taken the rough denim look to a whole new fashion statement with contrasting metal studs against tropical stitching creating a stunning centre piece with its beauty hidden in the boldness. Gucci’s “calf hair-panneled embellished denim jacket” is high selling at £4,780 a piece in the major retailers of Net a Porter and mytheresa. Taking on a wild texture assault over denim and bombers.

2. Stella

Taking a step down from the extravagance of Gucci’s denim Stella has mixed simplicity through her darker shades and vibrant embroidery, a calmer more versatile piece for your denim wardrobe. But keeping with fashions strong link to embroidery and textures this season, and retailing at £1,340 Stella’s over sized relaxed bomber is a must have for summer outfits, mixing relaxed with accessorised and creating the perfect balance.

But when paired with a unforgiving price tag, Gucci suddenly doest seem so friendly even if their look is stunning. So girls we expand into other designers such as Zara our all time favourite who have some gorgeous embellished jackets with prices that will love you back.

3. ZARA

Another heart breaker is Zara’s artist impression embroiled jacket, with a large fabric design in detailed gold and black stitching, this unique and rare jacket, matches Gucci with a bold design. A true masterpiece this relaxed fit denim and belt will send any outfit onto another level. At £59.99 Zara jacket comes with a label that won’t bite your purse and will lift all outfits.

All my love…Dotwiz X.

 

The bralette babe …

The lace looks are running back but with a casual tone. Becoming less of a statement piece and more like a lush accessory for relaxed day wear. But there are some definite Do’s and Don’ts in pulling of a easy bralette babe look:

  1. Always go classic, so not harsh bright colours stick to greys-blacks-navy for your colour scheme.
  2. Back detailing is essential, you want to expose an elegant back so go for more intricate designs featuring backs and shoulders.
  3. Its all about the lace, a regular bra isn’t elegant enough to be paired with causal attire, remember if you are wearing something slouchy it must be paired with some elegance to be pulled off correctly.

For me i go to Zara’s siter brand Berska it’s the perfect place to look right now with all of Zara’s style and price tags, it’s a more understated brand – so the perfect place to find rare edgy styles, especially when it comes to bralettes !

All my love and happy shopping…Dotwiz X.

4 hairstyles for rainy days…

4 Real easy hairstyles for those rainy afternoons…& How to turn a bad hair day into a natural (i’m not even trying) tumbler photo edit.

messy-pony-tail#1  The favourite messy pony tail, For those late morning panics, or get out of my face days. The messy pony tail is your latest BF. Just flip your head upside down, loosely gather your hair in one hand, Flip you head back up…Then loosen the top part of your hair by moving your hand slightly lower down your head. Tie it up with a cute scrunchy or bobble, securing however tightly you wish. Then to loosen your bangs gently run your hands through the top half of your head, and let them frame your face. Tadaaa your perfect bad hair day quickfix.

Just remember the beauty of this look is for it to be slightly messy… you don’t want a smooth head, so if your finding you cant quite get the messy casual look try straight away, try a little back combing through your bangs. It should do the trick!

messy-bun

#2 The classic messy bun, the most famous messy hair look for all girls and your partner in crime for any early morning coffee runs. To be worn high or low, Fat or thin, Messy or Messy… Simply flip your head over gather up your hair in one hand, use your fingers to run you hand through the roots to gather volume. Flip your head back over and tie it up like a pony tail, on the last pull through the bobble leave the hair half way through (so it looks like a floppy croissant) Then pull the hair around the front (now it should look like a donut) And tie another bobble around that. The faster you tie your bobble around your hair donut the messier it will be. Then if you want some loose bangs, just run your finger through the roots of your hair. And bam you’ve got yourself the most renowned messy bun out there…

up-knot-hair-style #3 The half knot, becoming more and more popular the half knot is a simple stylish look, if you just want your bangs out of your eyes…Or your sporting some killer lashes and you want the maximum impact! Simply run your fingers through the top half of your hair, gather up the strands, place however high or low you want the bun. And secure with a scrunchy. When securing you can either twist your hair so its in a long sausage then wrap it around you bobble and tie with another clip. Or you can gather up your strands and quickly pull the hair half way through each time you twist the bobble. Giving you a loose care free half knot, with a gorgeous messy effect. For whatever the occasion…I mean Kendal Jenner was even seen rocking this look fro the 2016 VS fashion show in paris, It really is a killer look.

double-bun

#4 The double bun (a modern princess Liea). A super cute messy look that truly frames your face beautifully. You can wear it as low as you want or as high as you want and still pull of the same OMFG effect. Start by dividing your hair into two. Then run your fingers through the hair to gather the loose strands and pull them on top of your head. Tie the hair up as if your putting it into a pony tail, Then gather up the ends of the hair and loosely wrap it around the bobble (use the bobble as a base to balance your bun, & if your struggling to secure the bun use some Bobbi pins as extra back up)  Then when your bun is secure run your fingers lightly through the top of your head, to create the slightly messy effect. Then just repeat on the other side until you have two gorgeous little messy buns. Now you are the true modern day princess!!

Hope you loved these looks as much as I do…Love Dotwiz X.
