Celebrating Spring with NEW ARRIVALS on

A post shared by SMYTHE (@smythebrand) on

The fashion retailer Smythe was launched in 2004 with blazers and jackets. Co-designers Andrea Lenczner and Christie Smythe’s wardrobe essential designs are given a unique sense of occasion. They have now gained a cult-status following with their full ready-to-wear collection continuing to be relevant, versatile and timeless.

I have now added Smythe to the list of retailers in the Shop section of the site. They can also be found in Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge, London. Hope you enjoy shopping with them as much as I have.

New McQueen Flagship Store in London

Sarah Burton is the creative force firmly at the helm of the Alexander McQueen brand. Now the new flagship store has opened in central London. Starting as an intern in the early days, she succeeded to Creative Director of the brand after McQueen’s death. Continuing to push the magnificently brilliant creative identity created by him.

The evolution of the brand has been meteoric. From a small Hoxton studio in the early days to recently opening an amazing new flagship store on Bond Street in February. The store is three-storeys high and was designed by architect Smiljan Radic, reflecting the uniqueness of the McQueen brand. On the top floor of the store is a gallery space and it houses archive pieces of the collections. Also a number of different events from talks to exhibitions are run for young creatives, to connect and celebrate the absolute genius of a man who was Alexander McQueen.

New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2019/2020

New York Fashion Week this season showed more diversity and inclusivity, which was a refreshing change. This lead came mainly from the younger designers who showed the older designers the future of fashion. In contrast to this, there was also a nostalgic retro feel about many designers shows, who looked to the passed for inspiration.
