Currently coveting… Pamela Love x J.Crew

Posted in Collaborations by Nneoma Ulu on June 13, 2012

I’m on the hunt for the perfect denim jacket, a must have for the summer months (despite the current UK weather) and also the perfect pair of slightly distressed jeans with a fit that is not quite boyfriend and not quite skinny. Enter the Pamela Love x J. Crew collaboration. Whilst slightly old news, these are two of my favourite brands who have created my ideal denim-based collection. Stuff that my dreams are made of… quite literally.

Currently coveting… Nike x Liberty trainers

Posted in Collaborations by Nneoma Ulu on April 19, 2012

These trainers don’t really require many words. The high top Dunks with concealed wedge are from the latest Nike collection for Liberty and have been remixed with the Lagos Laurel Liberty Print, a 21st century take on Liberty’s trademark traditional paisley prints. The print first appeared in the 1940s but has been refreshed for Nike with the addition of a laurel wreath motif. Move over Isabel Marant, this is how us Brits do it.

I want these now.

Marni x H&M is coming…

Posted in Collaborations by Nneoma Ulu on January 29, 2012

The first ad for the upcoming H&M collaboration with Marni has surfaced featuring British actress Imogen Poots. Likely to be shot in Marrakesh where the Sofia Coppola shot the campaign video, Imogen is lounging in a leopard-print filled room wearing a shiny paisley ensemble. The collection drops in stores on March 8th and I cannot wait.

Marni x H&M: Yes, please

Posted in Collaborations by Nneoma Ulu on November 29, 2011

I have not been that excited about an H&M collaboration for a while. I mean, the collection curated by 10 magazine editor Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou, piqued my interest and Versace completely passed me by. Today that has all changed. H&M has announced they will be collaborating with Marni’s founder Consuelo Castiglioni to create a Spring collection which will hit stores on March 8th, 2012.

This is most definitely more my style. I imagine that the accessories with be amazing, in particular the jewellery and perfect summer sandals. It’s is obvious from the preview video (below), Consuelo will deliver her signature bold prints in classic shapes that suit anyone.

The date is in my diary and this may be the first exception to my ‘I’ll never camp outside a shop for clothes’ rule.

David Koma x TopShop

Posted in Collaborations, High Street Fashion by Nneoma Ulu on February 7, 2011

There is not much that needs to be said about this collaboration except that it’s AMAZING. I met David Koma (of Cheryl Cole fame) at London Fashion Week (a couple of seasons ago) – such a small man but with immense talent and I love that he is bringing a taste of what he does so well to the masses. The catch – only five designs and thirty available of each. The designs, ranging from £100 and  £350, are available from February 16. Now this is one I hope doesn’t make it onto eBay.

Lanvin x H&M Fail

Posted in Collaborations by Nneoma Ulu on November 23, 2010

Oh well… looks like I won’t be getting any Lanvin x H&M. I don’t believe in queuing for clothes so this is it for me! Hope all of you who wanted pieces from the collection are having better luck than me!

Under the radar: Valentino x Gap

Posted in Collaborations by Nneoma Ulu on November 18, 2010

Only 5 more sleeps till Lanvin for H&M hit stores in the UK. Whilst people are figuring out their best method of attack and H&M offering guidelines on how to shop, Gap are quietly preparing to launch a new flagship store in Milan and have collaborated with none other than Valentino to mark this joyous occaion. The collection hits stores on November 20th (same day as Lanvin for H&M in USA) and will be available at Gap’s new flagship store in Milan, Dover Street Market in London, Colette in Paris and Gap’s London flagship. It’s a ruffle extravaganza…
