You know the drill – 

GANNI are taking us on a JOYRIDE 🚗

…are you coming? The luxury fashion brand has brought an SS23 collection inspired by the creativity brought to us through music. We don’t know about you but music fuels the soul and this was GANNI inspiration as well as the city that stole their hearts – Copenhagen. Radiating energy and getting ready for the sun, this collection is what spring/summer is all about. With pieces such as the knitted bodycon teal dress, ultra cropped jacket and low-rise pants (that you CAN pull off) to wear on your afternoon picnic dates and maybe continue through the night to that unexpected party you said you weren’t going to go to…  🍾

Let’s Talk About Streetwear, Baby 🏀

Keep your head up as HIP has collaborated with the notorious American brand Russell Athletic to take a trip down memory lane and bring us a 90s-inspired capsule. Adding a contemporary spin with a vintage aesthetic to 12 casual pieces made with eco-friendly fabrics. Stay Supa Dupa Fly wearing the ready-to-wear pieces in a neutral colour palette for hitting the streets or keeping it casual. “Girl, you know you better watch out” because you’re going to need to make some space in that wardrobe of yours. 😅

kate spade Goes Green 💚

Spring is coming which means colour is coming back into our lives and kate spade New York hasn’t come to play. Celebrating 30 years, the luxury fashion brand known for their accessories has partnered with the colour experts, Pantone, to give us a fresh new rebrand – kate spade green, soon to take over the iconic pink clover branding.

adidas And Jenna Ortega Give Us A Shock! ⚡️

Stylish, passionate and purposeful: what’s a better way to describe actress Jenna Ortega (and FROW ofc)? Known for her reimagined role as Wednesday Addams *snap snap* and appearance in the popular horror franchise Scream, she is joining another fierce family – adidas. The streetwear brand has a special announcement; for the first time in 50 years (yes, 50 years!!) there is a yet-to-be-unveiled new label with the young star the face of it. Designed to represent young adults and pushing the boundaries in the sportswear culture, this exciting news is bound to shake up the fashion industry and we just hope it won’t be “too odd for the normies and not odd enough for the outcasts.” 🖤💜

Celebrating Simplicity With Gym+Coffee 🏆

Nothing wrong in keeping things simple and minimalistic and Gym+Coffee couldn’t agree more – presenting GPC; a new collection revisiting the brand’s timeless pieces with an effortless relaxed aesthetic. We’re not saying you should only focus on the lazy days, but the outfits to lounge around in are really making it hard not to. We’re talking pullovers or zip hoodies with matching joggers – what’s not to love? The capsule includes 5 unisex styles and 3 womenswear pieces all in two earth tones, starting from £40. Aiming to bring out that inner confidence – safe to say these pieces look… zen-sational.  🧘🏾‍♀️

TALA Goes Inclusive 🌟

Plus size ladies, this one’s for you. Sustainable brand, TALA, has announced they’re expanding their size range starting with their two bestselling collections – SkinLuxe™ and DayFlex. Striving to make the brand inclusive, they worked closely with women for over two years to understand what was needed. Though this might seem long overdue, undeniably the brand has shown they’ve wanted to get it right and FROW respect that. The ethically produced apparel will be available in sizes 2XL to 4XL from 2XS from February 15th 🗓

Extending our sizing is something I have wanted to do from day one of TALA and a project we have been working on in earnest for nearly two years now. As far as we’re concerned, it’s long overdue, and there’s no way we’ll do it perfectly from day one, but I am so excited to take this step towards becoming the TALA we ought to be.
