Yellow!

Posted by Rebekah Roy on February 26th, 2014

Yellow is all over the high street today. You can see it in the shop windows of French Connection and the moment that you walk into  Zara it’s a sea of yellow. I’m going to wear yellow – it’s been so grey I feel need an injection of vitamin C and somehow a yellow dress might just be the thing that I need. I love black but recently I’ve been wearing a wonderful pink coat from MING and now I feel so desperate for colour.

Lots of yellow in COS and shift dresses are easy to wear in any colour.

Rails of yellow in COS,  including a simple striped 3/4 length top – it’s an easy way to inject a bit of colour in your wardrobe without too much commitment.

There are softer yellows in Banana Republic, an almost lime colour, perfect if  you’re too afraid of yellow and looking loud in an office environment.

I love seeing how shops merchandise their window and how they dress and what kind of mannequins they feature. This week my favourite windows were Zara on Oxford street. Punk and 80’s inspirations – loved the pin curl wig – very Givenchy A/W 13

Since the 18th century Bath has always been a fashionable place but in the past few years the fashion crowds have been making their way back to Bath. This is Bath’s 4th season of Bath In Fashion – and each year it gets better and better. There are so many events including

Roland Mouret in conversation with Susannah Frankel, Fashion Director of Grazia Magazine, Julie Verhoeven in conversation with Iain R Webb and Sasha Wilkins of LibertyLondonGirl will be discussing numerous fashion-related topics at the Guildhall plus I’ll be stying two fashion shows.

This week I’m spending a few days in Bath visiting all the high street shops, looking at all the spring collections and seeing what the shops have to offer. One of the things that I quite like about Bath is the shopping. The city centre is compact and walkable plus many of the streets are pedestrian walkways. The highstreet shop in Bath feels a bit more like a boutique, most of the shops offer the same level of merchandise that their flagship (level 1 shops) offer but what makes them unique is the level of customer service you get in Bath. I’ve grown so accustomed to the indifferent shop assistants in London that good customer service throws me off a bit!

The spring/summer collection in LK Bennette seems stonger than last summer. There are more block colours and a good selection of print dresses. Also surprisingly the length of most skirts and dresses sit just above the knee.

Coast is moving more into occasionwear – which is how I always thought of Coast. For the more fashion forward customer one would wear the dress in the picture above every day – you could throw a jacket over it and wear it to work but for most people this dress would be considered for a special occasion. I think more shops are trying to focus on what they do best – it’s better to be niche than trying to be all things to all people.

Nicholas Wylde has his studio downstairs in his shop and he’s known for the Wylde Flower diamond. The diamonds are ethically mined and really quite stunning as there are 32 more facets than a round brilliant stone. He will be showing the Petal Collection at Bath in Fashion Spring/Summer Collection fashion show.

Bath caters to all age groups and Rowland, who caters to women over 40, has just recently had a shop refit, giving the store a luxury Ralph Lauren type feel but at a mid-price point.

Bath in Fashion Blogger Award!

Posted by Rebekah Roy on March 24th, 2013

 Bath in Fashion Blogger Award!

I’m one of the judges for The Bath in Fashion Blogger Award and I’ve spent the weekend reviewing fashion blogs. I don’t often or really ever get a whole weekend to sit down and read tons of blogs so it’s quite a treat. I love just reading about how people love fashion. Many of the blogs I’m reviewing – the blogger works or is in university full time and just loves fashion – which somehow makes me very happy. I work in fashion and I’m always thinking about the customer – the wearer – will they like something, will it become a favourite piece of clothing in their wardrobe. I still meet editors and PRs who have a bit of attiutude towards bloggers (and saying that I have met some pushy bloggers) but there definitely is a need for bloggers. Not all bloggers want to work in fashion – but they like clothes, share what they’re wearing and their shopping experience with their readers – all of this information is important to those who work in the fashion industry.

Fashion happens everywhere and a lot of blogs are just generally about fashion – what is nice about this award is all of the bloggers considered are based in Bath/Bristol and the surrounding area and the local angle is great: you’d be surprised how many retail fashion shows and in-store events are happening all over the UK. There will be a short list of the 10 finalists and then the winner will be announced at the Bath In Fashion fashion show on Thursday 18 April.

The Duffle Coat & Paddington Bear

Posted by Rebekah Roy on October 30th, 2012

JoeCasely Hayford JohnLewis The Duffle Coat & Paddington BearPaddington Bear was my first introduction to the duffle coat. I think when I was little my brother had a duffle coat in camel too. The duffel coat is a classic but it can look so cool on the right man. Love this Joe Casely-Hayford Duffle Coat for John Lewis in Navy £299.

The coat was a collaboration with the Gloverall coat company with authentic features such as the washed wooden toggles, which are fastened with real jute. Gloverall was established in 1950 and the coat is part of a limited edition, with a numbered plaque from 1-120.
