~ VM WINDOW @ JIGSAW, KINGS ROAD

sushiandsugar:

I stumbled across this ever so pretty and delicate window display on my way back from Vogue Festival. It instantly caught my eye as I am such a sucker for florals and floral visual merchandising arrangements. I love how different brands interpret and incorporate florals into their visual…

VM WINDOW @ 3.1 PHILLIP LIM, SOUTH KENSINGTON

sushiandsugar:

One of my favourite brands visual merchandising window again. Time after time 3.1 Phillip Lim visual merchandising displays and chic and sophisticated ambience, no matter what colour palette or style of clothing.

DYED FLOWER

Beautiful dyed flowers at my hairdressers. Blue dye was simply added to the base of the flower to create this amazing blue petal effect.

Vogue, May 2014

sushiandsugar:

These delicate botanical butterflies really reflect the botanical s/s 14 trend which has been echoed throughout the collections this spring and summer. Both high street and designer alike have adopted this prominent trend which has been translated through not only clothing and accessories but also visual merchandising.

Purchases of the week

sushiandsugar:

Whilst out and about this weekend I really felt the need to give myself MORE retail therapy, but I didn’t want to break the bank as I have the tendency to go over board. To satisfy my shopping needs I went straight to Primark where I managed to pick up some beautiful summer pieces that can be dressed up or down!

ACNE STUDIOS, VM WINDOW @ SOUTH KENSINGTON

sushiandsugar:

Acne always have minimal vm windows and create more of a composition and statement piece rather than solely displaying their clothing. Whenever I have previously passed by the store I haven’t been overly excited about their previous visual merchanding but upon seeing this, I particularly liked the random nature of displaying the a shoe inside a metal wheel.

VISUAL MERCHANDISING @ MELISSA ODABASH

sushiandsugar:

Time to change our window at Melissa Odabash, so we decided to add something minty and refreshing accompanied by a white crochet bikini to echo the white embroidery on the long Marigay mint kaftan. To break up the mint I chose some sweet coral and pink jewellery to add a slight touch of warmth, as well as some white accessories to maintain the refreshing summer vibe we were aiming for.

SEXY SAFARI

sushiandsugar:

Safari wear has been made to look so chic and elegant. I chose to capture this all within one moodboard. Enjoy.

PEACHY & SUNKISSED

sushiandsugar:

Warm and inviting. With spring coming out peachy apricot, orange and pink tones are perfect when brightening up any outfit. Instantly gives a lift to any look and is able to break up dark colours which may be domineering over a certain outfit.

CARVEN, VM WINDOW - SOUTH KENSINGTON

sushiandsugar:

Flower Frenzy going on with Carven’s window display. Chic floral ambience with graphic floral window illustrations which reflect the patterns featured on the clothing. I like the way they have incorporated florals into their VM window without being too conventional. They’ve chosen to showcase florals in a modern and contemporary style, which creates a fresh clean chic look perfectly matched with Carven’s style.

VOGUE FESTIVAL 2014

sushiandsugar:

Vogue Festival 2014. I have been looking forward to this day for a long while now. I attended the talk titled Fashion Legends with Franca Sozzani & Naomi Campbell. It was definitely an inspirational talk and gave some real insight into both individuals as both valued people within the fashion industry and how they view what they do, and their own personal opinions on where the fashion industry is heading.
