ARCTIC MONKEYS -AM  ♪  ♫ 

 

Ooooya Ooooyaaaa even though it is not April yet we have already been getting all ready for the music festivals we are going to do this year. Remember you could find us the last year at the Isle of Wight Festival, V Festival, T in the Park, Leeds and Reading Festivals in the UK  and Roskilde in Denamrk? Guess what – you are going to be able to find our stalls over there this summer as well! If you haven’t got your tickets yet, get them as soon as possible and in the meantime you can have a quick look at what you can see this year. Remember – music is life, there’s no better fun than the festivals and a worn vintage look is a must. We presented the festival outfits in one of our posts the last summer. There is not much that has changed – it is still Levi’s 501 cut offs, Barbour coats, worn denim, flannel and aztec shirts, wellies, bumbags, bandanas and flowers in your hair that are a must – make sure you’re already prepared! If not – visit one of our shops in Birmingham or visit Harper and Lewis Vintage Boutique on ASOS Marketplace.

ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL 12-15 JUNE

RED HOT CHILLI PEPPERS   ♪  ♫ 

The Isle of Wight Festival is bringing together more than 75,000 revellers for a weekend of live acts in a tradition going back more than 40 years.

Tickets cost just £1.25 for the first festival on the island in 1968 which gave the 10,000 who attended the privilege of watching the bands perform from the back of a trailer as well as contend with a large open sewer on the site.

V FESTIVAL 16-17 AUGUST

The V Festival is an annual music festival held in the United Kingdom during the penultimate weekend in August. The event is held at two parks simultaneously which share the same bill; artists perform at one location on Saturday and then swap on Sunday. The sites are located at Hylands Park in Chelmsford and Weston Park in South Staffordshire. Although predominantly a rock music festival, a wide range of musical genres are accepted; in recent years pop acts have become more common.

The “V” represents the Virgin Group, with the event being sponsored by Virgin Media. It was previously televised by Channel 4, predominantly on their sister channel 4 Music, although for the 2014 edition of the festival it was announced that television broadcast rights would be returned to MTV.

Coming back to London Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week we would like to make a quick review of what to wear this Spring and later in the Summer as the snow must have melted for good now! Even though there was none this Winter in Great Britain, we are pretty sure all of us felt as freezing as it was an ice age in here anyway! Ok now, we think it is this time of a year finally when you can leave your house in the morning, wearing something light without any hypothermic side effects. Coming to the point – short descriptions and photos. May all of these inspire you to find similar pre-loved pieces at our Asos Marketplace Boutique under the name of Harper & Lewis Vintage. Yes we know, long time no see…Hence, feeling even more excited as always we would like to wish you Happy Shopping! xx

Quick Look Back at the Cat Walks 

Ego-Boosting Louis Vuitton. Our favourite one of all times.

How to Wear: Just Rock’n’Roll it ..

Future Florals House of Holland

Floral prints also seen at: Mulberry, Jonathan Saunders, Stella McCartney, Erdem

Floral prints, 3D blooms and pretty applique botanicals brought lawn borders to the catwalk this season. While some designers went classic with bold prints, others riffed on the theme. Mary Katrantzou’s jewel encrusted 3D posies and Christopher Kane’s phytotomy were a case in point.

How to wear: Team your neon florals and botanical blooms with edgy attitude and offbeat accessories, like metallic glam rock accessories, sky high sandals or chilled-out trainers. The two tribes within this trend are polar extremes – it’s either the lady-like treatment or sassy urbanite styling.

Pink Ladies by Burberry Prorosum

How to wear: Fashion’s fickle eye hasn’t quite moved on from pink. There’s still plenty of style mileage left in the hue that makes boys wink. Best worn as one hero-piece, such as a coat or jacket, or be shameless and wear pink head-to-toe. You go, girls!

Pleats Please Celine

As seen at: Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, Gucci

00290h_592x888

Schoolgirl pleats were given a luxe upgrade at LFW with foiled finishes, ombre’d effects and premium fabrics making the look completely grown up.

How to wear: Go for tight pleats on dresses, skirts and accessories. The broader pleat is a thing of the past… Well, for now.

Matchy (Mis-)Matchy: Alexander McQueen

Shredded Denim

Frayed denim offered a hip update on jeans for Spring. Dresses, tops and skirts looked nonchalent and brought a hint of the street to the runways. The look also offered London’s cool girls a new season wardrobe for Spring.

Pastels

Pretty pastels were pumped up this season with a striking palette of germolene, spearmint and Parma-violet. Head to toe and tonal combinations are the only way to go.

 The Mullet Dress

From left to right: Emilia Wickstead, Antonio Berardi, Erdem, PPQ, Alice Temperley, Antonio Berardi

All party at the front and business at the back, the lop-sided mullet dress has long been a favourite with Hollywood starlets looking to create drama on the red carpet. Antonio Berardi’s mis-matched skirt hems paired with sweaters show that the style is not just for blow out nights – it can also work for a modern take on cocktail dressing.

Hope you feel inspired to get some wicked vintage pieces of Harper & Lewis now – Spring is just by the cornet – GET READY

Happy Shopping, xx
