We’ve definitely been missing that Olympic spirit this Summer. So what better way to bring back those 2012 memories with The Tranny Olympics! Although if it’s athletics you’re after this is the wrong place to be, competitions include a wet t-shirt comp, eating competition, lip-sync for you life contest, and a trash talk showdown! And for those that don’t fancy being in the spotlight there will be DJs, performances and artists. For all of this excitement get down to Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club this Saturday!
Trager Delaney is the new young London label making waves for autumn/winter 2013. London born Kim Trager and Denmark born Lowell Delaney met and began their collaboration at Central Saint Martins. Since graduating they have created Trager Delaney, with its undeniably British aesthetic and an added edge of Parisian elegance. The collection uses blacks, creams, blood reds and royal blues, all for chic suits, liquid skirts and nipped-in waistlines.
Yesterday Tiger Of Sweden closed 3 days of shows at MBFW in Stockholm. The 2 gender collection titled ‘Poetic-Punk’ had a neutral colour scheme through the whole show. With womenswear using hard detailing to contrast the barely there pastels, and the menswear had a hard look across the whole collection with micro-patterns offsetting the monochrome. We loved the tartan prints, the mix of leather and sheers and just the whole collection in general!
Adam Selman, Rihanna’s costume designer and helping hand for Rihanna at River Island, will debut his first collection during New York Fashion Week this September. The collection has been described as having a heavy swimwear component but is ultimately ‘wearable’ (unlike some of the outfits we’ve seen RihRih in!).
