  • The Noughties

    With a new season on the horizon we got thinking about the glorious trends of days gone by. If 90s were all about nonchalant grunge then the Noughties were utterly and fashionably fabulous, roll-on body glitter and shag bands included. Remember the Townie and Greebo days of yore? Remember UGG boots, ‘So…? Kiss Me’ body spray, hair mascara and fashion’s most memorable denim duo- Britney and Justin? It was the decade in which Banksy smuggled one of his paintings into Tate Britain, iPods landed and velour tracksuits were the bomb. We can practically smell the over-straightened hair from our desk.

    Here’s a list of memorable moments of the Noughties:

    *SPOILER ALERT* Kat Slater is Zoe's mum

    Ethical Fashion came to the Fore: Esthetica was launched by the BFC, the uber stylish Carrie Bradshaw got second-hand savvy and our Beyond Retro family opened its first home on Cheshire Street in 2002! Recycling became a buzz word and vintage wears stole our hearts! Hat’s off to that.

    Boho Babes: Sienna Miller ruled the fashion agenda. Gypsy skirts and waistcoats were number 1 on our hit list and it was totally common code that every gal worth her salt had to finish off said ensemble with the piece de resistance, a disc belt.

    Ghetto Fabulous: On the end of the fashion spectrum was the super sassy J.Lo* switches on All I Have ft. LL Cool J circa where she dons that lip-gloss. A team of American R&B divas and WAGS wore baby blue zip-ups, ultra mini-skirts and diamonds. On. Errthang.

    The Launch of the High-Street Collab: Shopping frenzies ensued as everyone wanted a piece of as Lily or Giles for New Look whilst the likes of Barbara Hulanicki and Kate Moss worked their magic for Topshop.

    So High: Footwear reached new heights. Shoes were the new ‘IT’ item of the decade. Warning: Tread carefully.

    Oh-so-low-cut: Our love affair with jeans continued. The reign of the baggy bootleg at the beginning of the decade soon gave way to staple super-skinny denim. Low-cut jeans ruled and were totally acceptable on the red carpet.

    On the Decks:

    - J.Lo

    - Amy Whinehouse

    - Justin Timberlake

    - Gwen Steffani

    - Arctic Monkeys

  • New Age Sportswear

    Think your old Kappa tracksuit is destined to gather moth balls? Think again. We’re in the midst of a new age for retro sports gear so we took a peek at our crystal ball for 2015 and can reveal sportswear comebacks and throwbacks galore. Get your kicks ready and look out for the likes of Champion, Ellesse and Fila- they’re hot property right now!

    Shop 90s

    Flashback to Kate Moss for Tommy Hilfiger - those red high-waist hot-pants with the cropped white Hilfiger tee and the oversize printed jacket. Or perhaps you're a little more Mel C in her Spice Girls days, circa 1996 - think scrunchies and popper-studded bottoms. Or else, are DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince more your thing?

    For all the goss we caught up with our menswear expert from the product department, Kevin Soar. We chat 90s gear and Champion’s comeback…

    ‘A new generation of UK youth has embraced the brand and Tumblr is awash with Champion sweats, socks and track pants teamed with the usual Reebok Classics or Adidas Superstars. These brands were killing it in the 90’s, rocked by Hip Hop heads in the Bronx and UK garage kids in Bromley alike’

    ‘What makes the popularity of Champion is the brand’s simplicity. The cuts are comfy, generous to those of us not inclined to a jog and timeless. The simple ‘C’ logo appeals to those that like to flash a cheeky bit of branding as well as those that fancy a bit of basic non-showy sportswear’

  • On the Decks: 1970s Music Icons Part 2, the Babes

    The time-tide is forever throwing us back to the decade of disco and 2015 is no exception (no complaints over ‘ere!). The power of Flashback Friday has us fully in its thrall, so turn up the tunes with a welcome dose of nostalgia that will slot into your SS15 wardrobe with ease. Any Donna Summer fans in the house? Loosen up ‘n’ get down to disc two of our sassy seventies takeover. Forget the GTO’s, this weekend we’re all about taking centre stage.

    Tune into your soundtrack to the season!

    1. Janis Joplin

    Janis is our forever bohemian babe. This countercultural icon embodies the spirit of the late 60s, with her untamed tresses, barefooted antics and eclectic ensembles, the Texas-born rock goddess has top slot in our music hall of fame. Word on the street is that she brushed her teeth with whiskey too.

    Listen to: Pearl, 1971

    2- Linda Rostandt

    She had a mojo to lust after and her wardrobe wasn’t half bad either. Dubbed ‘rock’s superwoman’ and featured on six Rolling Stone covers, Linda Ronstadt was a female superstar in a male realm of pop, rock and country tunes. One hella cool country diva.

    3. Diana Ross

    Counting Studio 54 as a regular haunt, her bedazzled costumes placed Diana as one of the enduring faces of Motown records. At the height of Supreme mania this doe-eyed diva was utterly lavish.

    4. Joni Mitchell

    The Canadian folk musician is our sustainable style icon and was the original free-spirit of the decade. Her affinity for flowing dresses and effortless wears have certainly caught our attention this SS15. Hat’s off to our lady of the canyon.

    Listen to: Blue, 1971

    5. Cher

    From midriff-baring costumes sported on “The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour” to her goddess of pop feathered headpieces, it’s fair to say Cher ain’t a wallflower. The 1970s brought kohl-lined eyes and bodacious attire. Plus, that hur.
