Burberry Prorsum SS12


London Fashion Week is well and truly in full swing this week with some amazing collections from the likes of Sass & Bide, Mary Katrantzou and Aquascutum but to name a few. However, we all know that TellusFashion and the rest of the fashion world were eagerly awaiting the arrival of the next Burberry Prorsum collection from Christopher Bailey. Its fair to say that we were not disappointed!

For SS12, Bailey took the brand in a new direction this season, bringing us more detailed garments full of print, weaving, braiding, beading and plenty of soft spring colours. Not forgetting the signature trench which appeared on the catwalk in a stunning aqua blue for the coming season.

Have a look at the collection below

Street Style: London Fashion Week

 

 

 

 


Down at Somerset House yesterday, black was the new black…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Peep show…

Seems all the A-list our holding their own private peep shows this week with cut out dresses being the pick of the crop for coveting their fabulous figures. Beyonce wasn’t going to let a little thing like pregnancy get in the way of her style credentials as she appeared at the opening of the Tony Burch Madison Avenue Flagship store.  Pairing both leather and cut-out detail in her edgy dress, she was at risk of looking that little bit too risqué but she kept it classy with the long length of the frock. Kim Kardashian  appeared at New York Fashion week watching her half  sister Kendall’s catwalk debut in her striking silver number and Rochelle Wiseman flew the flag for the Brit girls showing off her impressive cleavage in her Celeb Boutique dress.

So what do you think of the cut-out trend? Will you dare to bare? Tellus…


Emerging Talent: Mungo Gurney

It’s TellusFashion’s goal to promote the newest talent in fashion, whether that may be in fashion design or any other form of artist within the industry (photographers, make-up artists, hair stylists – you name it) so I take great pleasure in introducing to you an extremely talented designer, a graduate of Central St. Martins College in London – one of the most well established fashion schools in the country, and the only school to ever showcase its students creativity and hard-work on the runways at London Fashion Week. Tellusfashion readers, feast your eyes on Mungo Gurney.

Mungo Gurney is renowned for his outlandish prints which are said to be inspired by many different places around the globe. He has unleashed his very first ready-to-wear swimwear collection to the world which presents itself as a bohemian homage to Northern California and Southern Europe.

In a statement from the designer, his spring summer 2012 collection ” sees bold, modular prints created in a vibrant alchemy of rich navy-blues, fresh mint-greens, soft rose and beige, along with graphic primaries. Forms take shape in graphic dots, art-nouveau motifs and block prints drawn from Matisse’s abstract involvement with architectural decoration.”

Looking at Gurney’s collection, it is obvious to state that the shapes of his pieces remain simplistic yet don’t deny the garment of feminine silhouettes (The clever use of print on the dress and the use of darker colours give the illusion of parts such as the waist, being synched in) and could be said as being reminiscent of the 1920s French Riviera look. We absolutely adore what Mungo Gurney has created here and we will most definitely be watching to see what’s next in his creative pipeline. His work is effortlessly cool and can be translated easily from the catwalk to your wardrobe.

Tellus what you think of his work!

Fashion Weekly Update

Hey my tellusfashion junkies, I’m back again for another week with all the fashion gossip.

This week John Galliano was found guilty in Paris!!!!

20110910-031947.jpg

John Galliano had his day in court this week, where a correctional court in Paris, gave the verdict on the none present designer. Which of course came back as “Guilty”, for uttering racist and anti-Semitic comments in a Paris cafe.

The court handed down a total fine of €17,500, which includes €4,000 for February’s alcohol-fueled, anti-Semitic rant in a café that cost him his job as creative director at Dior, and €2,000 for a similar outburst last October. The ruling fell far shy of the maximum fine possible. The designer will also pay over €5,000 in legal fees and a symbolic euro in damages to each plaintiff and to five anti-racist organizations that had brought a civil suit.

As expected, Galliano will serve no prison time. In its comments, the court noted that despite his triple addiction (alcohol, sleeping pills, Valium), Mr Galliano was lucid enough to be conscious of his acts. That the designer had become “a ghost of himself,” and the loss of his iconic status was punishment enough, noted the lawyer for Geraldine Bloch, one of the plaintiffs.

With the trial closed, an announcement is expected from Dior shortly about Galliano’s successor.

On to something not so fashion, but more gossip. During Fashion’s Night Out last evening the Kardashian store DASH, in Soho was surrounded by thousand’s of people and had to be shut down by the police.The Jersey Shore’s Pauly D contributed to the mass hysteria of fans when DJing the party held in the very small store.Things really got out of hand when Pauly D left, causing fans to jump the steel barricades in an attempt to touch the reality star.

Lady in Red…

I’ll be the first to admit that I was more than a bit excited to see not one, not two, but three of my biggest girl crushes; Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez and Eva Longoria on the cover of  October’s issue of Latina magazine. Celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of the publication, 15 lovely Latin ladies posed alongside each other in designer red dresses, bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase, ‘lady in red.’ Other beauties snapped on the cover included Shakira, Gloria Estefan and Zoe Saldana.

A great red dress has the ability to transform even the most shrinking violet into a sex-siren, so why not  rev it up in red and sizzle into Autumn by heading over to Tellusfashion? This Red cocktail dress by Esse-Elle’s stand out colour will allow you to get noticed but the chic and elegant cut and demure length stops it from being tacky. Likewise this dark red little lace dress by Guillermo Leon oozes sophistication but with a fiery and sexy twist. If however, you’re not feeling brave enough to embrace all over red, then a red clutch or red shoes will add a pop of colour to your outfit.

So what do you think of the raunchy red trend? I  love the cover, my only issue being where are Eva Mendes and Penelope Cruz…?
