The fabulous sisters, Nathalie and Ninnie evoked the interest of both trendsetters and vintage addicts with their beautiful casual and elegant handbags and accessories range, Nat and Nin.

With the finest Italian cow top leather, a vast range of colours, unique textures and finishes, simple but fashionable lines this is what make Nat and Nin’s affordable leather bags and accessories a must have wardrobe essential this winter. No doubt their beautiful maroon leather large clutch come perfect sized ipad case will be on my Christmas list. Available at www.academy-clothes.co.uk

Chanel Surfboards

Image

The renowned Parisian fashion house Chanel have designed a stunning set of surfboards. The haute couture brand have created these fabulous surfboards in the original Chanel classic style; with black, white and red as their chosen colours. Hmmm glamourous surfing, after 18 years of living in Cornwall and barely being able to even stand up; maybe if I were to have one of these chic surfboards maybe it would of been a different story. At $4000 a board, I don’t think I will be getting one anytime soon though.

Prices start from just £1.00 which is amazing as there are some really great original pieces in Kukee’s collection. There are a fair few products that I have just ordered, couldn’t resist.

The Hundreds // Borgore

Image

The Hundreds is a multi faceted project that houses a clothing and accessories brand, footwear range, eyewear, an online and print magazine as well as retail stores. The Hundreds sell a lifestyle, attitude and give a personal perspective on street sub culture. Inspired by the Los Angeles lifestyle and California culture with Southern Cali’s skateboarding, surf, punk and hip hop cultures. The line is sold in limited quantities in some of the worlds most prestigious street wear and skate boutiques. The website itself is a great site, incorporating interviews and blog content from within and around the subculture. The Hundreds isn’t just a magazine or clothing company. The Hundreds is a lifestyle project that still remains the original personal and direct, and reflective of the community and culture, which is dedicated to their fan base.

One of The Hundreds most recent collaboration is with the Israeli dubstep DJ and producer Borgore, who we all now is infamous for his leopard print. These Borgore inspired Johnson Lows offer ‘ a lux take on a somewhat simple sneaker silhouette’ incorporating Borgore’s signature style.

As much as I am normally into a more of a simpler design, I am actually quite a fan of these!

Kate Sheridan // Bag Designer

Image

Bag designer Kate Sheridan is a new find for me, but definitely a confirmed favourite. I love the collection of bags and accessories with a strong range of plain and printed sacks, totes and satchels, but this one has to be my favourite and is also newly available at Urban Outfitters. Unquestionably on my want list for next season.

I really want to host another exhibition or art fair in the near future, or perhaps a christmas fair?

I really want to host another exhibition or art fair in the near future, or perhaps a christmas fair? With a range of artists, zine makers, jewellers, independent clothing companies, cake makers and perhaps even some cocktails thrown in there? I think it would be a great opportunity for local creatives to meet and show what they do.

Team GB Attire

Image

Really not a fan of Team GB’s outfits at the Olympics opening ceremony. The garish white and gold tracksuits worn by team GB caused a bit of an uproar on twitter on Friday evening, with tweeters claiming the squad look like a ‘a team of Elvis impersonators’ – disappointing as top designer Stella McCartney was supposed to be behind the design, however has been denying she was behind the tracksuits. Next who manufactured the tracksuits said the colours had been selected to make the team ‘stand out’ and to be fair, mission accomplished, while we were prancing around looking like chavvy astronauts, many of the other countries participating opted for their nations traditional attire or more formal outfits, like the rather gorgeous looking Italians in their Armani style suits, I know which I preferred.

Collar Pimping

A great way to upgrade an outfit without having to fork out a lot. I wasn’t sold on them at first, but was really swayed with Kate’s fabulous collar addition on this shirt.
