So it’s Christmas time…..
Yes -ocnce again, it’s come around quickly this year -and what better way to spread some Happy Socks cheer but in collaboration with our friends at The Three Threads here in London? The guys and gals at one of our favourite local stores here in the Eastern parts of the big city, whipped up a really nice Happy Socks installation in their shopwindow for the holidays. The whole thing was christened with some much welcomed mulled wine and general Christmas treats during their first late night for December on Thursday this week. Further on if you stop by this week end to stock up on some footwear (they have a great selection with everything from Pointer to Clarks) and they may just be kind enough to slip you a pair of Happy “Holiday” Socks for free, how about that!
Decembers issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine has showcased this gorgeous, very sexy red teddy from Hanky Panky in their December issue just in time for Christmas in their “32 sexy bits to seduce in” feature.
One of our favourite fashion sites Selectism, was kind enough to do a feature on our a fantastic Won Hundred Sonic Denim Jacket so if you haven’t already checked out this jacket then there is all the more reason to now.
We have been very busy lately here at Sewn Agency but yesterday injected a little bit of excitement into our day, with numerous press days. The first one on the agenda was hosted by Sane Communications who represent fashion and lifestyle brands, including our very own Happy Sock, Triwa Watches and Glass boutique, who teased with snippets of their fantastic Spring/Summer 2010 collections.
Next on the agenda after a much earned tea break was The Surgery press day, who had out done themselves with some exciting new collection. The highlight of the day was however our very own Won Hundred Spring/Summer 2010 collection, which merited rave, reviews.
All in all the day was very successful with all our brands and Glass Boutique receiving a great reception so expect to see them popping up in favourite glossy magazines very soon.
Yes we know, we know – the cat is out of the bag.
However not even the most well kept fashion secret can stay a secret forever, sorry folks- we feel it’s time to share WON HUNDRED , our first ever protege here at Sewn– with the rest of the UK.
So, what is probably one of the best brands to come across from Denmark in years (a country possibly better known for their liberal take on err.. newspaper illustrations and streaky bacon) will now be a little bit more visible in the fashion press thanks to PR Agency Surgery, who’s team is a very welcome addition to the ever growing number of fans of this super cool menswear, womenswear, footwear and accessories range.
Is Fashion going all arty, or is Art going all “fashion”? Don’t ask us we don’t know, for every Fashion week that steams past we get more and more confused.
-Is that a canvas on your head?
-No it’s a Philip Treacy…
-Is that a very petit studio flat hanging off your hips?
-No it’s an architectural skirt…
-Have you been romancing a Christmas Tree?
-No it’s the new CDG fragrance…
Eternal questions- endlessly entertaining conversations.
Anyway, here to make things a little bit clearer is the brand new and by the sneak preview -very pleasing to the eye-Elephant Magazine. It’s published by Magma Books and with the 1st issue coming out in November it will feature our very own WON HUNDRED which is of course fantastic.
So keep a look out – we’re not just looking forward to this one for the above reason but as you may have understood by the opening sentence of this post -we need this magazine it in our lives NOW!
What’s that in your goodie bag- an everymans Roly Poly? an Audemars Piguet a la Ari Gold?
NO -It’s a TRIWA Lemon Dandy watch!
Well we know they had a whole issue of “arm candy” in this month’s GQ supplement- but we thought rather than battling it out on the same pages as the rest of watch-world, why not give away some of our favourite TRIWA styles to the already spoilt celebs attending the GQ awards? So that’s what we did, we know -there’s no justice in this world. However, the TRIWA Lemon Dandy is slightly more attainable to you and me than your average Swiss time keeper and still seriously stylish at £85 from selected stores accross the UK.
In fact they’re that sweet, they even got featured in this months Vogue-they however chose the “Great White” for the ladies.
Vogued and GQ’d in the same month!? Not bad for this humble Scandinavian accessories brand, see the Vogue feat. below…
If you’ve caught a bit of this seasons fashion flu also known as “Balmainia” (see what we did there) but aren’t quite up for splashing out 1k for a pair artfully destroyed pair of denimes -who is except for La Moss? although hers were probably free.. Anyway if you aren’t that lucky or crazy!? Then you should get yourself hooked up with a pair of these seriously messed up April 77 Records Joeys from ASOS Womens Design section- as prescribed by the October issue of Marie Claire below..
As well as all those Scandinavian and European garms we like to fill up the Showroom with, we would also like to welcome our first British collection on board –Stansfield. Some of you may already be familiar with this well thought out Menswear Collection, with it’s roots firmly bound in traditional tailoring and good old fashion workwear. If you’re yet to discover the Stansfield Outfit Project, waste no time in checking out founder and designer Dom’s blog . As you can see he’s quite obessed -which to be honest, in design and fashion is never a bad thing. Stansfield is all about extensive research and clever but never over worked detailing, and we will have a very special new range here in the showroom from September onwards-launching in stores for SS10. We can’t say too much, but there’ll be slight nudges to the Royal Navy and “The Cruel, Cruel Sea”, some great and very British colabs incorporated- and also a new take on how the range is presented….
