It’s All About Embracing West African Culture With Tribal Ëyës, Keeping Our Skin Moistured With Delhicious Body And Tuning Into BBC Radio 1🌍😎😍🎵


Happy Friday FROW Fam! Who else is shocked about how fast the month has gone? Another week done and dusted and the weekend is finally here.🙌🏾

It’s a wrap for London Fashion Week and we’re ready to hear all of your opinions (and share some of ours) from the looks, performances, and catwalks – you know where to find our Twitter! And as if things couldn’t get any more exciting in the fashion world, H&M has announced their next designer collab for the Spring ‘23 collection will be none other than the House of Mugler, directed by Casey Cadwallader, the creative director for the luxury fashion brand – expect the unexpected they say. And music lovers, keep your ears peeled as The Weeknd has dropped a remix for Die For You with Ariana Grande – we know you’ve been waiting for the duo to make a new hit since Save Your Tears. 🎶💧

It’s March next week and you know what that means – spring is upon us and what better way to enter the new season than with new collections, collaborations, skin care drops, and new additions to your home.🤩

We won’t keep you any longer!👇🏾

Stepping Into The Next Season In New Sneakers 👟

We’re continuing an era with New Balance’s iconic 574 sneakers in collaboration with luxury fashion brand Miu Miu bringing in three new versions of the trainer – blending the eighties silhouette from New Balance and adding Miu Miu’s handwriting for the subtle extra detail. But what makes it different from the rest? The shoe comes crafted in marble-effect cognac denim with blanched white leather. The hot sneakers made their debut during Paris Fashion Week – keep your eyes peeled as they come to the end of this month. 👀😍

A Sole That Is Completely Uneek 🌊

A collaboration between Keen and Skall Studio? Music to our ears. The fashion and footwear brands are coming together to introduce an SS23 collection right in time for the seasonal change. The pair shared a vision – to keep our beaches clean – and what better way than to give donations from the purchases of the environmental new sole to the Beach Bins initiative who do just that? The new Uneek sandal (£115) is made with undyed linen, cotton, cork, and deforestation-free rubber. Available from May 6th (Nordic Coastal Clean up Day) in the SKall Flagship store. 🏝🐚

The brand introduces their collaboration with the iconic performer, a new SS23 campaign, exploring the concepts of fashion and continuing to inspire and empower women’s creativity, self-expression, and confidence. Jones has been the muse for the brand and has often been seen wearing iconic pieces like the first Fatal dress (£160) and the body-forming Mat De Luxe (£150). Wearable art? We’re sold.🖼🤑

Flying High With Tribal Ëyës

Tribal Ëyës is wasting no time adding to its eyewear library with its Butterfly Collection embracing the West African culture and inspired by the western roots. We’ve all heard of the phrase ‘float like a butterfly, sting like a bee’ right? It’s time to do just that – feeling fierce and beautiful all at once. The brand has made sure to beat the myth of “one size fits all” and has made them to fit those with wider nasal bridges and bigger alae nasi. Not only that – beating expectations of monochromatic shades and giving us pairs with unique patterns and colours. Time to get your eyes on a pair!

A New Era Of Baseball-Wear ⚾️

It’s big… real big – the biggest instalment of headwear and apparel has dropped and it’s embracing all things baseball. Bring out the cake and candles as the streetwear brand, New Era, known for their 59FIFTY fitted caps, is celebrating giving us pieces for over a century and they are ready to give us more for this spring season. The brand has knocked it out of the park with their new campaign ‘Always On Side’ showcasing retro sport styles in 9TWENTY caps and bucket hats, varsity jackets, and graphic t-shirts. Nothing like a baseball-inspired top to make you feel like you’re living your 90’s dream. 🏟🧢

Three, Two, One – Stretch With Nudea 🧘🏾♀️

Nudea truly is the gift that keeps on giving with their newest Stretch Collection. The underwear brand is making sure to take care of the girls and the new range is in the newly introduced ultra-lightweight recycled multi-dimensional microfibre material (a bit of a mouth full, we know) giving you that extra bit of comfort. Nothing worse, and we mean nothing worse, than uncomfortable underwear. The pieces are made to “move with you” – shaping and fitting to your body with an invisible finish. Wait there – it’s available in three new spring shades? Blush pink, cotton white, and sage green with prices starting at £13. 🌸

What Screams Spring Better Than New Silk? 💐

This year we’re stepping into our ‘It Girl’ era and bringing out that pop of colour, embracing the vibrancy Intimissimi is right behind us with their New Silk collection, combining femininity and elegance – what better way to do it than in a high-quality material? Their classic cut shirt will be available in Valentine Pink – a bright fuchsia, Apple Mint, and Digital Turquoise as well as a range of other hues. Classy and relaxed? That’s the vibe this summer! ☀️

Sportswear Meets Sustainability ♻️

Sportswear brand, Umbro, is combining a clean and modern aesthetic with environmentally friendly fabrics with their new ‘The Undyed Collection’. The brand is changing the game with sustainable pieces for SS23 – channeling their inner minimalism, the pieces are sleek and casual. Did we mention that the material is undyed? The unisex apparel styles are made from 100% recycled materials that use non-toxic printing techniques. Enjoy your lazy day in hoodies (£55), joggers (£45), and a relaxed t-shirt (£35). If you’re aiming for an all-sustainable wardrobe, the brand has made it easy for you. 😉

Making Heads Turn In The New Lucy & Yak 😍

Independent brand, Lucy & Yak is back to give you pieces that will have heads turning. The brand known for their dungarees has partnered with designer and illustrator, Ruby Taylor to give you the ultimate wearable art staple – The Ragan Jumpsuit (£66) created in materials such as organic sustainable cotton inspired by pop culture and women’s experiences. Gets better – they had comfort in mind; the jumpsuit is in an a-line style with cropped legs, best for wearing to not only feel comfortable but also steal the show. And we all know accessories make an outfit right? The Brady Bag (£24) made from organic twill is available in the same bright and vibrant print. 🍃

In my work I love exploring themes of empowerment, sisterhood and self-esteem, I also love to explore the beauty in everyday experiences and objects.
