Style Spotlight: The Alto Rucksack


Striking accessories are a wise investment this season, as fashion’s focus falls on classic accents with a refined twist. At the forefront of this key trend is our Alto rucksack. Crafted from butter-soft leather, this standout staple is adorned with high-shine detailing for an opulent twist – lending a contemporary spin to a traditional style.

But how best to wear it? Fashion’s finest bloggers give their personal twist to the sumptuous rucksack: from teaming it with a simple streamlined overcoat, to a finely pleated midi skirt; this sophisticated style is as versatile as it is luxurious.

My Style After-Dark: Part 1


With our everyday wardrobes largely influenced by fashion’s finest bloggers, we decided to turn our attention to the style-set’s after-dark ensembles; inviting six leading names to reveal their go-to eveningwear outfits.

With a clear focus on how each style maven’s look adapts from day into night – and how best to make a sartorial statement long into the twilight hours – our shoot showcases an array of diverse outfits: from razor-sharp tailoring for an androgynous spin, to femme-fatale dresses worthy of screen-siren status.

We interview each of the high-profile trendsetters to discover their after-dark sartorial secrets: from revealing their desk-to-dinner staples, to how best to accentuate every girl’s perennial favourite – an LBD.

Read on to enjoy our stylish snippets from Lucy Williams of Fashion Me Now, Patricia of Patricia Bright and Sarah of Style On The Couch.

Stay tuned for part 2 of the feature, which will go live on Thursday.

Behind-The-Scenes: Wonderland Film


Renowned fashion magazine, Wonderland, have shot an exclusive video – reminiscent of the French film noir during the 1960s – to showcase our AW14 collection. Shot in simple black and white – with a decidedly vintage-inspired feel – an intimate narrative between a young couple unfolds, sound tracked by lilting French dialogue.

Using a retro Super 8 camcorder, the male actor follows the female actor throughout the apartment – cutting quickly from one revealing shot to the next. Reversing roles, we then see the female actor as she becomes the director, and her male counterpart her muse, smoking a cigarette as he takes to the piano. Flitting between both points of view, each frame is a vivid portrayal of their intense relationship; going on to highlight certain aspects of their personalities.

Co-produced by Nick Thompson and James Willis, and styled by Kusi Kubi, the film takes place in Bethnal Green’s Town Hall hotel, the minimalist interior – think high ceilings, wooden panelled walls and ornate windows – providing the perfect backdrop to the unfolding love story.

Read on for our interview with Nick and scroll through our behind-the-scenes shots for a stylish insight into the film’s most memorable moments.
