Super Shop

I went along to the flagship Superdry shop on Regent Street last week, for the exciting launch of their ‘Premium Lounge’. 

The event was hotly anticipated and it was packed to the rafters with cool revelers and international press. We munched very tasty canapés and swigged, well, whatever we could get our hands on to be honest. Mostly Bellinis.  

The Premium space is now up and running with monogramming, basic tailoring and personal shopping appointments all available.  There were some exciting collaboration between Superdry and Timothy Everest, Cheaney and more!

The Regent Street Superdry is well worth a visit; traditional Superdry gear (logo tees, cargo styling) is now punctuated with some very chic items indeed. I spotted a gorgeous beige leather jacket in Stylist this morning and there were quite a few ‘ooh, I really want that’ moments on the night. 

Visit Superdry Premium Lounge: LG, 103-113 Regent Street. W1

Kate Moss Styling

Nothing has made me want dramatically two-toned hair more than the new Kate-Moss-edited Vogue fashion shoot. Daphne Guinness band hair. It's best to see it in real life - March Vogue.

The Heal’s Modern Craft Market

The Heal’s Modern Craft Market officially opened at Heal’s Tottenham Court Road store last week.

Designed to celebrate the best in British contemporary design and craftsmanship, it was great to ‘meet the makers’ and try my hand at some new craft. The market was made up from selected independent designers and a collective of RCA graduates.

I was really impressed with Heal’s as a whole (we explored a bit as well as looking at the Craft Market section) the kitchen section was amazing! 

It’s definitely worth a visit; you could pick up a future craft classic at a reasonable price. 

So chic!

This knitted table was amazing

I wanted all of these Art Deco style cushions

Zalando Gifting Suite at the W Hotel

I’m not ashamed to say that the words ‘gifting suite’ still give me a shiver of excitement. Yes, I’m shallow, but what can you do? I hadn’t heard of German brand ‘Zalando’ before, but when I learned that was ‘the world’s largest online wardrobe’ (‘it’s like a fashion Amazon’, whispered one girl) I was out the door and on my way to Leicester Square.

Excitingly, the event was held in the glamorous W Hotel, in the very same suite (‘E WOW’) that Leonardo DiCaprio stayed when he was down for the Wolf of Wall Street premier. I’m not going to lie, there were many mutterings of ‘that’s where Leo slept’, ‘Leo might have touched that towel’ from myself and the other press and bloggers invited.

Inside the impressive suite hung some very impressive clothes. I had my beady fashion eye keenly focused on a satin Laurél dress with bold brush strokes and arm-flattering sleeves. A silvery Michael Kors tuxedo jacket was getting lots of appreciation too. My obsession for Modalu bags was confirmed with a deep, glossy oxblood Pippa.

Between browsing, I joined the queue for an amazing KMS blow dry and had my nails done by Little Minx, in an Sophia Loren style OPI shade called ‘Italian Love Affair’.  

All in all, a very nice afternoon - thanks Zalando!

I loved the Zalando collaboration with Italian blogger Eleonora Carisi - the print was fab!

A shirt with animals all over it. Can you have too many?
