The first wave of fashion week in New York has died down, leaving us to pick up the pieces of yet another fashion regalia parade. We’re not complaining though. As the stylistas jet off to Londontown for London Fashion Week, let’s pause for a second to collectively swoon over some of the most head-turning street trends that pulled off a show just as good as the runway.
By now, we know full well to wait with bated breath for exclusive H&M collaboration projects each year, and as far as we’re concerned, the names keep getting better with time.
Now that we’ve confirmed a whole new look for Fabspy that’s set for 1 November, we can’t help feeling a tad nostalgic at how far the brand has come since its humble beginnings in 2012. As the saying goes, all good things come to an end, but in this case, we’re pretty sure that this new beginning is only the start of something better.
We’ve been receiving friendly nudges from Fabspy shopoholics out there for being a little quiet on the shopping front. Not to worry as we’re currently working on something entirely different. While we’re not about to let the cat out of the bag just yet, we’d love to drop some hints on what’s to come…
Just like fashion trends, beauty fads come and go along with the changing seasons. We especially love how colour rules at one period of time, and everyone from fashionistas to the every day girl get crafty, playing up the colour in their getup and face ‘paint’. If you ask us, the biggest colour trend right now is hair colour.
Lights, camera, action! Besides runway shows, the best way for fashion-hungry girls like us to keep up with the latest trends is on the red carpet. The past few days saw the glitz and glamour of two major awards, the Emmys and the MTV Video Music Award (VMAs), paying tribute to achievements in television and to honour the best in music video respectively.
When it comes to the skinny jeans, there can only be two sides of the coin – You either love it or hate it. For those of you had never looked forward to squeezing into a pair of skinnies, the good news is that your ordeal is over. The fashion world is shifting its sights on the new trousers… the baggy, laidback-chic pants.
There’s something so alluring about the British – it may be the accent, the unparalleled self-deprecating humour or their cool and composed style – all these traits mould them into the perfect muse. Unlike their American counterparts, there’s a class and modest sensuality that seems almost effortless… Think fashion goddess Alexa Chung, screen siren Keira Knightley and that Kate Middleton effect. Yet, there are still more It-Girls: Young, adventurous and embody the different façades of Britain. Here they come…
There’s nothing as über cool as the effect of a jacket. Even our humid weather does not stop local trendsetters from shouldering the jacket. We don’t blame them – it’s an irresistible item to nail the modern-retro look of the moment. With fall around the corner, these are the best ways to master the cross-seasonal staple effortlessly.
Whoever said that our local fashion scene is short on talent and personality will change their mind if they dig deeper into the industry. In fact, you don’t even need to dive deeper because some of these designers and fashionistas are already outstanding icons.
