Rosie Huntington-Whitely is set to star in the Autumn M&S campaigns

By emilyborrett on August 31st, 2011

Britain’s poutiest supermodel, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, is going to be the new face of Marks & Spencer’s Autumn ad campaigns alongside the Green Lantern star Ryan Reynolds.

The A-list twosome are going to front M&S’s Autograph collection, one of the department store’s many different clothing lines, though Autograph is one of the most fashion-forward ones. Rosie, who’s previously modelled in Burberry campaigns, said: “I feel proud to be associated with a British high street favourite that holds fond memories for so many people.”

The Canadian heart-throb Ryan also has a fond connection with the store and thinks of M&S with “nostalgia”. He said: “Going into an M&S store with my family or friends always gives me a beautiful pang of nostalgia. The Autograph collection is a modern take on the classic style I love and feel most comfortable wearing. The pieces in this collection are lasting staples that’ll never go out of style.”

The executive director of the store, Steve Sharp, was absolutely ecstatic to get the Hollywood pair to front the brand – we have to say that a Victoria’s Secret model and a Hollywood blockbuster hero is a bit of a step up from Myleene Klass and Danni Minogue dancing around in their pyjamas. He told MailOnline: “Rosie and Ryan are the perfect fit for Autograph – beautiful, exclusive and absolutely contemporary. On set, they worked together to deliver a mesmerising performance which allowed us to capture shots that literally sizzle with excitement and an air of mystery.”

Keep an eye out for these two on the telly – Marks & Spencer just got sexy.

Autumn/Winter Trend Alert: 60s Mod

By emilyborrett on August 1st, 2011

Shift Dress in Colour Block

This is the best mod-inspired dress on the high street right now. The contrasting tones and eye-popping colour make this dress from Asos an absolute must-buy.

Oh happy days, the mod trend is back with a swinging sixties vengeance and I couldn’t be happier if I tried.

At this Autumn/Winter’s fashion shows the likes of Jil Sander and Burberry Prorsum travelled back into the past to bring us a veritable assortment of swing coats, tunic dresses, ankle boots and ski-inspired knitwear in a bold rainbow of colour.

More wearable than other upcoming trends such as goth, craftwork and (whisper it) zoot suits, the scooter girl look is a cute and girly way to easily sail through the perils of a new fashion season. What’s more, the simplicity of mod-inspired clothes means that it’ll be an incredibly easy look to wear in the winter months when you want to layer up. Snuggly and fashion-savvy, this is a trend we’ll get on board for.

If you’re looking for the definitive tunic dress then head on over to Asos, where we guarantee a rush on their brilliant turquoise tunic with contrasting pockets. Meanwhile, Topshop is all over Chelsea boots and have updated the classic sixties boot style with a few quirky fashion-forward twists such as fringing and studs.

The high street is already all over this trend, so if you’re ready to start planning your A/W wardrobe then check out our gallery above – we’ve had a highly successful search for amazing mod-inspired pieces.

Christopher Bailey admits Burberry was in an old rut when he joined

By Andrea Petrou on July 6th, 2011

Christopher Bailey admits Burberry was in an “old rut” when he joined.

The designer started at the fashion house in May 2001 as creative director before being made chief creative director in November 2009 and says there was a lot of work to do to make the brand more modern.

He said: “I never wanted to be a number one person; I was always happy being a number two person. When I joined Burberry, I was 29 – a kid – and Burberry was very old, not specifically in age, but in its mindset. Burberry was just in an old rut. There was no energy whatsoever, it was a company based on past glory.”

Since Christopher joined, the label has experience a huge resurgence and he believes it’s because everyone who works there enjoys their job.

He told Britain’s Vogue magazine: “We’re a young team, but we’re now. We’re the biggest grower in the FTSE, with over 7,000 employees. And it’s serious, and I take that as a serious responsibility – the decisions we’re making affect a lot of people’s lives – and it’s busy. It’s fun!

“You can either decide this is a hellish nightmare or you can decide this is fun. What I’ve learnt is, I’m quite thirsty for moving on, for newness. I love new projects.”

A/W 2010 trends: Buttons

By Andrea Petrou on September 22nd, 2010

Buttons were left on designer’s shelves over the summer period as bold zips took the “must have” crown and pushed themselves onto the front and back of dresses, tops, jackets and of course trousers.

However, this season buttons have battled back landing the top position in A/W 2010 wear.
They swarmed over the catwalks proving a military look at Burberry, became bold and brassy at Balmain and formed centre pieces for double breasted coats at Oscar de la Renta.

The key way to wear this style this season is by giving a nod to the military trend by choosing jackets with brass buttons. If this doesn’t rock your boat go for something a little bit more subtle and choose cardi’s with bold buttons, or keep it simple with a single oversize button strategically placed beneath a princess collar.

If your feeling a little bit experimental then why not go for buttons down the sides of trousers and skirts.

Here’s our top five button buys for A/W 2010.

LFW Highlights: Burberry

By Andrea Petrou on September 21st, 2010

I’ve been looking forward to the Burberry show all week. And I’m pleased to say it didn’t disappoint. Alexa Chung and Sarah Jessica Parker both turned up to the event kitted out in khaki Burberry creations. Alexa in a satin high neck dress with a peter pan collar, and SJP in a fitted leather trench coat.

Alexa described the brand as “beautiful and aspherical”, and after seeing the designer’s SS2011 collection we most definitely agree. Models, including Jordan Dunne marched down the runway in leather trousers and fitted jackets.

Some jackets were beige, some black, some were leather. Others were trimmed with leather and PVC, while some had shoulders encrusted with studs. Many also had the 50s skinny waisted belt, which looks to be huge next year.

Leopard print made an appearance on jackets, dresses with zip detailing and a gorgeous strapless top, as did snakeskin in greens, whites, blues and blacks.

And just as we thought Christopher had forgotten all about the feminine line that is becoming so prominent in the SS2011 trends, out came the ruffled pastel coloured dresses with zip detailing. They were also given a contrasting rockier edge with the biker jackets Christopher teamed them up with.

Other dresses gave a nod to the 60s, with high necks and a loose satin silhouette. However we don’t envy those models who had to walk down that slippery catwalk in super high heels and we really don’t blame them for sliding all over the place.
We’ll be bringing you the pictures very soon.

AW Trend Alert: Gilets

By Andrea Petrou on September 9th, 2010

Love them or loathe them gilets have flown right into the 21st century from the 80s, thanks to the emergence of the fur and leather trends that have been showcased by a range of designers .

Burberry vouldbe to blame for the reintroduction of the aviator look, while we could also point the finger at Marc Jacobs for all his fur festishes.

Those who love these little items of  clothing however, will rejoice in the fact that this year these come in a range of  different fabrics symbolising different trends. The highstreet is packed full of leather gilet’s symbolising the biker trend, while denim gilets are still lurking around from the summer season.

The key way to wear this trend is to layer up. Wear over a tee for the not so cold days and team up over cute dresses to create the 40s boho look. We’ve picked out our top five.
