We’ve had a busy few days hopping from show to show for LC:M (yes, that was us partying it up with David Gandy and indeed, we were hanging out at the Moschino & I-D party on Monday) but there’s nothing like actually seeing a show and checking out what is going to be big next season!

Fresh from being backstage at Baartmans and Siegel earlier in the day, we headed over to The Old Sorting Office to queue with the rest of the fash pack for the highly anticipated Xander Zhou show at 2pm.

Taking our seat a few rows behind the gorgeous Oliver Cheshire (sans girlfriend, Pixie Lott) the show opened with blaring electro music, which kicked off proceedings nicely. A predominantly dark colour palette was used, with hints of glitter and sparkles in the form of blazers and oversized jackets, teamed with flashes of pop colour seen in trainers and accessories.

The collection had a futuristic/sports luxe vibe running throughout, from the oversized shapes teamed with fabrics like mesh making an appearance. Accessories like skateboards, luxurious gym bags and headbands kept the collection feeling relaxed and away from mainstream, which is what Zhou has become known for.

What Do Your Shoes Say About You?!

What Do Your Shoes Say About You?

We made it to Tuesday Shopcaders, rejoice! To celebrate this milestone, here’s another wonderfully insightful blog post. This time it’s all about which summer shoe you are!

Do you have all the traits of a Jelly Shoe- fashionable but fickle, or are you all about your ballet flats- stylish yet reliable? Find out below!

You are married to your Air Max: Hey, don’t be ashamed to be a trainer! They are enjoying a total fashion revolution right now, so whereas once upon a time, you wearing trainers was a sign that- A) you were a total gym bunny, committed to working out like a demon or B) not really bothered about looking good, it was all about comfort- now it’s a sign you are totally WITH it. Work it, girl.

You’re a Jelly Baby: You fashionista you! Jelly shoes are the shoe du jour of the summer, so you are right on the money with your footwear choice. We’re not exactly sure why they are so beloved; perhaps the fashion gods got so carried away with the 90s revival that they decided to make some of the ugliest shoes known to man (bar crocs) super trendy again. Go figure! Anyway, enough judgement. If you like them, then go for a glittery pair- this will at least make them in some way pretty!
