SISTERS MAKE SWIMWEAR WITH A CONSCIENCE

No Comments fashion, health & beauty, lifestyle, my words, sara darling, SoEdited, style

Taking a dip in the Med might still be a dream for all of us based in the UK, during the pandemic, but our waters are warming up and there’s no excuse not to look great on your isolation swim in Costa Del Bournemouth.

One way to wow, is by choosing discerning swimwear- that is kind to the environment at a time when everything is topsy turvy.

TUCCA Swim is a new brand by sisters Helaina and Chloe Thomas, who have pioneered materials from the oceans to create a super soft recycled nylon, made from plastic bottles.

MY FAVE AW20 TRENDS FROM LONDON FASHION WEEK

Comments Off on MY FAVE AW20 TRENDS FROM LONDON FASHION WEEK fashion, my words, review, sara darling, style

LONDON FASHION WEEK has just left the building, and the Autumn-Winter trends for 2020 couldn’t have been more timely! Not that I am wishing my life away, but I could certainly wrap myself up in several of the key pieces right now! Roll on spring….

In the meantime, check out my report for IntoView magazine, and see if any of the collections get you excited…

Fashion is cyclical- trends are recycled and it’s hard to come up with something that is completely new. That is, unless you are deliberately re-jigging something old and transforming it with a new lease of life.

SHOE TRENDS FOR 2020

Comments Off on SHOE TRENDS FOR 2020 fashion, my words, news, review, sara darling, travel

When I was asked to go to Italy and do a shoe review, I thought my all my dreams had come true! After all, shoes and pizza are two of my favourite things…

But I remained completely professional and soaked up the shopping, consumer and style trends from WGSN like an extremely dry sponge… and saw some mighty fine shoes to boot!

Capes are not just for Superheroes

Comments Off on Capes are not just for Superheroes 55Factory, fashion, my words

Helen Howe makes beautiful capes, riding jackets, frocks and twin sets, but they are far from stuffy! 

Constructed from Scottish tweed, they have a lot of personality!

I went to meet her at her studio in Leicester. Check out her designer profile I did for 55Factory here …
