Autumn certainly made its presence known this weekend didn’t it? London Fashion Week got off to a somewhat drizzly start on Friday, then on Sunday – gails blew and sideways rain prevailed. None of this is ideal when you have a heels/cobbles situation to contend with.
The weather didn’t dampen our spirits half as much as it did our clothes though and The Apartment got off to a suitably stylish start! Once again, we’ve been temporary residents at a gorrrrgeous location in Covent Garden, just a stone’s throw from Somerset House. The idea is that bloggers come to The Apartment for a well earned pit-stop between shows. They can borrow items from the wardrobe, charge up their tech, get a make-over – all the ingredients to a successful Fashion Week.
Our accessories room has proven very popular with the bloggers, who are able to pick and choose items to add to their LFW ensembles. With a mixture of mannish flats, lace-up boots, embellished heels and knee high riders – our Autumn/Winter shoe collection has gotten loaaads of ‘oooohs’ and ‘aaaahs’ so far! Ponyskin accessories have been a clear winner with the bloggers and many of them have taken the Black Pony Slip-Ons for a spin on the cobbles (note to self: much more practical than heels!).
The dip in temperature has had us all reaching for the the faux fur this weekend too, and luckily there’s PLENTY to choose from this season! In fact, we’ve got a few shelves of it in one of the cabinets at The Apartment – super easy for anyone who want to add a bit of texture to their outfit.
And we can’t not mention our wonderfully blingy jewellery collection either! Dotted amongst pieces in our accessories room and also laid out beautifully in one of the drawers in the wardrobe – there are so many statement pieces to style out. We just want to wear them all at once! (…we won’t, don’t worry).
