LFW: Key Trends for SS15

•••
As London Fashion Week came and went in a flurry, we're left to mull over its key themes – a compelling mix of dramatic cutout details, deep-sea shades, and ethereal textiles. Read on to see what colours, shapes and design details will define spring/summer 2015.  While we don't quite want to think about the depths of winter quite yet, we can happily proje[...]

Romantic florals

•••
Trade in your loud summer prints for the daintiest, delicate patterns, with whimsical winter florals all the rage for AW14. Look to the Burberry autumn/winter 2014 catwalk for inspiration; florals were hand-painted and lightweight midi-length skirts swished down the catwalk. Our favourite prints can be found on the softest chiffon, with elegant lace a fab[...]

The grandest 60s revival yet

•••
The defined silhouettes and freewheeling aesthetic of the 60s are back again with a vengeance, yet never have we had such elegant, modern interpretations.  With so many style icons defining the era, everyone from Twiggy, Jane Birkin and Jean Shrimpton, to Patti Boyd, Brigitte Bardot and Julie Christie era’s – all polished, self-possessed, yet more than a [...]

Prince Harry @ 30: A life in style

•••
As HRH Prince Harry turns 30 today, we look back at how the royal redhead's style has transitioned from cherub-faced youngster and boy of Eton and philanthropy, to stylish man about world. Apparently, there was no big bash to date to commemorate the milestone, as Harry's planned party was cancelled due to sister-in-law Kate's severe morning sickness. He had[...]

Steal Her Style: Amal Alamuddin

•••
Immaculately groomed and wildly accomplished, the very soon-to-be Mrs Clooney, human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, was spotted out in London in this stylishly autumnal biker-chic look.  Tough-luxe, gritty glamour is an aesthetic that always holds a place in the heart of every fashionista, and Amal is no different. Taking a break from her usual smart ladyl[...]

Debs @ #LFW

•••
So it's here - and so are we. When we first fell out of our beds this morning we weren't exactly impressed at the sight that greeted us; grey clouds and the promise of rain. But the lure of previewing the SS15 collections more than helped give us that little extra push away from a lazy Saturday at home (it is National Bed month, after all) to the hub of beau[...]

Designers at Debenhams: Happy 21st Birthday

•••
    As we get ready to celebrate the 21st anniversary of Designers at Debenhams - the first collaboration began in autumn 1993 - we got to thinking about what makes our designer collaborations so unique. Is it simply high-end quality at high-street prices, or is there more to it? (There's more to it.) Read on to discover how our designer coll[...]

Dress Like a Bullingdon Boy

•••
If you've not yet heard, the upcoming film The Riot Club  (based on the real-life hedonistic Bullingdon Club which David Cameron and Boris Johnson were members of) promises to be a who's-who of handsome British faces as well as a masterclass in formalwear. Hate it or love it, the Bullingdon boys' impossibly dapper outfits have inspired a new level of smart. [...]

Red Alert for the New Season

•••
  Vamp up your look this AW14 with a splash of red - the go-to way to brighten up your wardrobe and go for bold in the style stakes. Seen at the shows of Victoria Beckham, Moschino, Chloe and Victor & Rolf couture - to name a few - red is clearly a shade to invest in. Whether you opt for a simple statement accessory or a head-to-toe working of[...]

How to get snapped at LFW...

•••
With London Fashion Week starting this Friday, September 12, we're excited for a bevy of reasons. For general fashion industry action, for the spring/summer shows of our own Designers at Debenhams, and for photo ops. Yes - admittedly, everyone loves a street style cred (even model Elena Perminova, pictured above). Here's how to get one.  Street style phot[...]
