Balmain Back With A Bang For Pre-Fall ’19.

After a couple of seasons off, Balmain is back and better than ever. Perhaps Olivier Rousteing needed a couple of years to recoup, rethink and try some different things. Thankfully, that’s over and his return to form was a stealth one. For his Pre-Fall 19 show, Rousteing left behind the glitz and glamour associated with […]

Festival Glamour Inspiration: Elie Saab SS18

I’m a huge fan of all things Elie Saab. Whilst girly isn’t usually my style, nothing makes me swoon like one of his dresses. Glitzy, glam and impressively modern, he is the indisputable red carpet king. With Coachella underway and festival season on the horizon, I’ve been contemplating on how to approach this annual dressing […]

Monday Blues? The Dior AW17 Show will give you that much-needed boost

We already know that Maria Grazia Chiuri, wants us all to ‘be Feminists’, but for her AW17 collection; instead of emblazoning this message across instagrammable t-shirts, this was cleverly sown into the fabric of her seemingly sombre – and all blue -collection. Her message could be felt in the black panther inspired leather berets, the small […]

2017: An Ode to Optimism

After a rocky 2016, it seems we are all committed to making 2017 a year of hope, togetherness and possibility. If 2016 was the apocalypse, then 2017 is the year we dust ourselves off, walk through the rubble and saunter off into the sunset. For SS17 it was surely no surprise then, that designers looked to […]

Backstage Beauty – Christopher Kane SS15

Monday at LFW is classically the day for the big dogs to show. Burberry wowed with painterly trenches, the fantastic James Bay and Kate and Cara on the front row, whilst Tom Ford gave a sexed up rock chic to challenge Hedi Slimane’s supremacy as the King of rock & roll. But as always, for […]

All hail the Mega Wing @ Givenchy Men’s SS15

In a recent post Blush heralded the return of berry lips, as seen in the new AW14 Givenchy Campaign and it seems the man behind the brand, Riccardo Tisci, has signalled the return of another forgotten favourite, the mega wing. After seasons of minimal make up and nude lips, it was nice to see that […]

Blush loves…Christopher Kane & Alexander Wang Pre SS15

Christopher Kane and Alexander Wang have always shared a few things in common. Single syllable surnames aside, the two have risen through the ranks at much the same speed and time, they both boast loyal followings thanks to their relentless originality and their ability to translate the mood of the street as opposed to reinventing […]

Dior Cruise ’15- Rihanna & Olivia Palermo – Look of the day

  Yesterday saw the first Cruise show of the season, staged by Dior. The show was an extravagant start to the season as attendees were whisked from Brooklyn in a Dior branded cruise ship (very fitting). The show itself was an extension of the seasons before with 1940s Dior style blazers reworked, painterly prints, and […]
