Young, Fresh & New!

23 Oct

Sydney based Young Republic is setting their sights on becoming the go-to destination for designers and lovers of independent fashion all around the world with the launch of their new international online marketplace today.

Founded by Aussie duo Marianne Sea and Andrew Yang, Young Republic features a plethora of unique, eclectic and one of a kind womenswear, menswear, jewellery, accessories and products for the home created by international independent and emerging designers. Likened to Etsy for fashion, the appeal for these designers to sell on Young Republic is a no-brainer – the website allows them to transact online with no joining, listing, or upfront fees; features a dead-easy portal to manage products, orders and stock inventory; and provides free-to-use social interaction, community management and marketing tools to assist designers to grow their brands.

Designers are quick to jump on board this new opportunity to bring indie fashion to the masses. Young Republic’s newly launched site already features over 500 Australian and 100 International designers, all destined to be the next big names in fashion.

“The beauty of Young Republic is that it is so youthful and current. It is a fantastic tool for putting designers in touch with their target market and giving each label an opportunity to be seen,” states Lauren Brooks, the Australian designer behind Baumbach.

Fashion lovers from all over the world are able to shop the streets of Sydney, New York, San Francisco, London, Paris and Tokyo without leaving the comfort of their own homes, and can easily discover and recommend pieces that cannot be found in local stores.

“People love going to the weekend markets because they can buy unique one-of-a-kind items you won’t find with the big brands,” says Young Republic co-founder Marianne Sea, “We wanted to bring that exciting experience online”.

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.

YSL: Jungle Fever Footwear

2 Jun

It seems no fashion house is complete without a cool casual footwear collection and YSL is no different. This season French luxury fashion label Yves Saint Laurent has launched a capsule collection of fierce footwear. Trainers are no longer seen as the footwear for sports or urban street styling.

YSL offers a bold jungle inspired range from snake skin imitation high tops to cheetah fur textured slip ons these pieces will allow you to add a bit of casual chic to almost any outfit whether you want to dress down a suit or dress up your basic Nike trackies. In keeping with one of the biggest SS12 trends ‘Tropical’ and taking it in a masculine direction I predict these will be a hit.

Locked And Loaded!

18 May

Lately I’ve been having major dilemmas. I’ll find an AMAZING item of clothing that is very unlikely to be found on every other girl around town and 9 times out of10 its an international brand so the shipping is almost as expensive as the thing I want to buy. Argh!

These Machine Gun Stockings by Singapore based brand The Cult Label are a breath of fresh air since everyone and their mother started wearing the Henry Holland style stocking tights. Edgy and original.

I don’t usually share these cool finds with friends until I’ve bought it and worn it but this is unfortunately sold out (however a similar version is now available) and on top of that the ‘nude’ shade of the actual stockings could look really wrong on my brown skin tone so don’t want to risk it. But heck I can’t keep these to myself they are just too much!! I need these in my life somehow..fingers crossed they will be stocked in a light denier black or no doubt some brand will knock them off (most likely be Top Shop lol)

This is the first i’ve seen from The Cult Label and trawling through the stock I want or like every other thing. Definitely the place to cop a few things to jazz up your wardrobe and make a change from the usual UK high street finds.

What do you think of these.. Yay or Nay?!

#HelloNellyUK!

18 May

Regular readers of PRL would’ve seen the recent competition I had to win tickets to the Nelly UK launch party and last week I joined the lucky comp winners from here and various other sources to mingle with press and fashion bloggers from around the UK for a great night of cocktails, fashion & entertainment.


The highlight of the event was that Nelly was kindly giving away a free pair of shoes to the first 300 ladies though the door and so as you can imagine the queues began early. I arrived at 6.30 and joined the bloggers queue and slowly but surely worked my way in and grabbed a Nelly ribbon to get me some shoes!

 

 The venue was the beautiful Aqua which is a restaurant bar by day and there were plenty of drinks flowing immediately. Apart from drinking there was a plenty to do. Have your nails painted, get your photo taken in the photo booth with the some cool accessories or browse the fabulous clothing and footwear brands such as AX Paris and Cuba shoes that lined the rooms.


The VIP room that hosted the shoes we were able to pick from was bustling with eager ladies picking out their favourite three pairs of shoes out of loads nestling in glass cases around the room to enter into the Nelly booking system. There wasn’t opportunity to try on shoes for obvious reasons, I just hope i’ve picked the right size as i’m an annoying ‘inbetweener’ size. But anyhow the wait long queue to select shoes was eased with entertainment from pole dancers and sushi.

Over all it was a great night of socialising and goodies. I can’t wait for one of my studded lovelies to arrive! A great way to say #HelloNellyUK. Check out some of the pictures of the night and don’t forget to check out Nelly the next time you indulge in some online shopping.
