London SS16 Press Day Highlights: Part 1

Hello gorgeous people!

I decided to get back on my blogging game and give you guys a rundown of my faves that I've seen at some of the press days I've gone to recently...

Let Me Throw In an Update...

If you've been following my blog for a while, you may have noticed my content is a lot... erm... shorter and shall we say... simple? I must apologise for this but to keep matters simple, I am going through quite a difficult period in my life right now and sometimes it's hard for me to find the time and energy to manifest the blog post ideas in my head.

That being said, I do definitely have some ideas in my mind and I want to get back to doing some more insightful posts, particularly regarding body image and shopping addiction. I hope this of interest to you guys, do let me know!

My blog is always going to be my baby and I sincerely appreciate anyone who finds the time to read it or even goes on it once in a while every so often. I love writing and I love sharing content and I hope to get out of this funk a little bit so I can write things which are more up to scratch :)

SS16 = LIFE! 

For now, let me show you guys some absolutely STUNNING SS16 pieces my eyes had the pleasure of seeing. Admittedly, I haven't been to that many press days this season compared to last year because I've been caught up with other urgent priorities but from what I have seen, there seems to be a little bit of minimalism going on but hardly any compared to the experimental designs I've seen using laser cut, custom designs and intricate prints. My favourite concept I've noticed is that a few brands are collaborating with charities or using eco-friendly materials which is absolutely what we need to be seeing more of, especially with low to mid-range collections.

 Modus PR:

I fell in love with the G-Star RAW collection which featured some quality jeans as you would expect but also some really innovative pieces from their latest concept which is all about saving our oceans (oh and Pharrell is the designer so naturally it's dope af).

I fan-girled when I saw the Giuseppe Zanotti collection with their beautiful electric tones, metallic gold panels & loads of glitter everywhere. It's basically my idea of heaven.

Chloé kept it chic as always with their eyewear... it seems rounded frames are definitely the way to go for SS16.

Gorgeous display from The Cambridge Satchel Company feat. lots of cute pastel shades. I've never been a satchel girl myself but this kinda persuades me to try one.

Loud & eccentric new styles from TOMS who also have a unique project going on to provide shoes to the less fortunate.

Expect the unexpected from Pringle of Scotland! Yes of course they still have their cashmere jumpers but they have also released lots of fun, experimental pieces which certainly shocked me. Love, love, love them going out of the box though!

Minimalism is in the air with MUJI! I didn't know much about them but I got a lovely intro to the brand and I'm sold on their affordability & non-mainstream collection from gorgeous aroma diffusers, skincare & stationary.

I have to admit that the Persy collection was one of my favourite finds, probably THE favourite  I will remember. I just fell in lurveee with these couture finds with all the frills included. I mean this is what red-carpet is all about.

Another beaut from Persy... I couldn't stop running my hands through the layers, it was like a work of art! 

Gorgeous metallic laser cut skirt from Paul & Joe, team this with a plain black polo-neck & you'd be the star of the show!

Vivetta had a whole rail full of the quirkiest pieces known to man...
