Across The Pond

London Fashion Week came to an end on Tuesday with over 110 designers showing their SS13 Collections over a five-day period. We look to our friends across the pond for inspiration for this week’s Trending Thursday picks.

Fashion

There is just something about this dress from Holly Fulton’s SS13 Collection that keeps me coming back for more. What a gorgeous piece!

Fulton details her signature style and objectives behind her creations here: “The ethos of my work is to capture a couture finish and an attention to detail within ready to wear…The use of decorative surfaces is vital within my work and I am constantly endeavouring to create a challenging yet beautiful surface which pushes the boundaries of modern fashion… My current signature style contains lots of geometric pattern lavished onto simply cut garments; big, luxurious, simple shapes with bold jewellery; bejewelled crystallised dresses and an eclectic mix of modern materials with a high end finish.” HollyFulton.com

I’d say she has definitely succeeded with this new collection.

Music

I’m infatuated with this song by AlunaGeorge. “Your Drums, Your Love” has such a catchy and simple beat and Aluna’s voice adds just the right amount of emotion to it all. It may be played several times a day on my laptop but that’s neither here nor there. Enjoy:

About the duo: “Having had their sound described by one fan as “advanced minimalistic polyrhythmic beats”, the only thing that is already clear about AlunaGeorge is that they can’t be neatly tucked away into any one box, what with bashment, experimental hip-hop, ’90’s R&B and house all dripping into their influence pot. Drawing on everything from Flying Lotus, Chris Clark and (their fan) Hudson Mowhawke to Aaliyah, Destiny’s Child and Mariah Carey, the AlunaGeorge catalogue promises fun times”. – AmazingTunes.com

Art

From illustrations to sculptures, it’s no secret that Arran Gregory has talent. Arran’s WOLF exhibition was featured throughout the entire AlunaGeorge video for “Your Drums, Your Love” and was set in The Victoria Art Gallery. He just finished a solo exhibition at the Print House Gallery in London earlier this month. Check out more of his work at: www.arrangregory.com
