Jeremy Scott & New Eras Arab Spring

26 Sep

Over the top, daring, eye catching always come to mind on a Jeremy Scott collection. SS13 he presented nothing less with ‘Arab Spring’ for his most recent Fashion Week showcase.

Animal skin, crazy infusions of gold & cheeky sheers set the hip hop meets Arab prince tone..Think Fresh Prince meets Aladdin.

This summer headwear was street fashion hottest accessory whether you were rocking a snapback,  cool headtie or even statement hair and Scott is right on it for next year with this offering of fitteds. Teaming up with New Era, just as with the latest clothing collection the caps centre on fusing urban styling with luxurious & double-take embellishing.

This pack of baroque applique, toffee leather and tassled snake styles are a breath of fashion air and is something that’s been missing from caps of late with the heavy US sporting influence. It is yet to be announced as to how/where the caps can be purchased but I predict these will be just as successfully as the Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals collabo.

LFW: Tata Naka A/W12

22 Feb

Yesterday I was lucky enough to have been invited down to London Fashion Week to view the AW12 collection from Tata Naka. The ready-to-wear presentation showed the work of sisters Tamara and Natasha Surguladze who are Georgia natives.

Arriving promptly I didn’t know what to expect from the presentation and 4.30pm the doors opened. We entered a monochrome check floored room which was draped from ceiling to floor with tribal ethnic inspired prints and the models stood poised to a Motown classic. The presentation began with the models lined up in curly afros and colour blocked creepers. The AW12 collection from Tata Naka is print full and colour full. The collection showed a great combination of African Malawian inspired tribal print work and embellishing with contemporary styling and cuts. For example they took a bold yellow tribal printed pencil skirt and teamed it with a pin striped shirt buttoned to the neck and topped with a colour blocked boyfriend jacket and creepers. I absolutely loved how this collection was put together and styled. Sophisticated, contemporary and yet extremely playful.



Tata Naka speaking on their signature style “Our collections explore the unexpected; we play with the illusory but always maintain a sense of humour. One of our signatures is our in-house prints that are based on our paintings and photography. We always aim to create timeless pieces for our customers: pieces with which they will fall in love” And I couldn’t agree more. I fell in love. See more pictures from the collection here.

The presentation lay out made it feel as though you were gate crashing a photo shoot with the lighting and photography equipment in the centre and eager photographers running around and shouting directions while waving arms at the models to ‘pose like this’. However the constant flow of Pina Colada cocktails and the banging Motown soundtrack with great classics from Diana Ross to Michael Jackson it was an enjoyable Fashion Week experience.

AW12 has been my first introduction to the Surguladze sisters work and I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. I now have a whole load of items added to my wardrobe wishlist from the ladies! I have never been a fan of creepers but the footwear featured in their collection could make me a convert! (The crystal studded ones were my fave.)

In conclusion the A/W12 collection from Tata Naka was a hit, these pieces will provide you with that much needed cheer in our typical British Autumn/Winter chill. 2012 holds a lot of exciting projects for Tata Naka so keep your eyes peeled for the launch of their online store, a new jersey line and more!
