What happens when you mix a creative photographic talent with an up and coming womenswear brand? A cool advertorial that would normally be out of reach for a start up brand.
Huxton’s first video was created by James Beattie over just two days, in a tiny studio with zero budget. Without the plethora of models, glamorous location and large budget normally at the disposal of larger fashion names, Huxton’s video stands alongside the fashion giants in a credible way. Beattie and Huxton prove that all it takes is a good idea and an element of creativity to make a fashion video that could easily blow the majority of other films out of the water.
Huxton was founded in 2011 by Joanna Lingham and Rebecca Pickard. Inspired by the idea of Clarissa Pinkola Estes that wolves and women are relational by nature, the wolf became the perfect symbol to represent our brand. Wolves are “possessed of great endurance and strength, they are deeply intuitive, fiercely stalwart and very brave”
The stories of Estes which speak of discovering one’s instinctual self were so resonant that they became the catalyst for the beginnings of Huxton and this wolf-like female strength is ever present in the essence of our designs. From bold colours to stunning prints, micro minis to floor-sweeping maxis, we create clothes for women who want to stand out. Check out the full collection at the Huxton website.

This collection was really fun. It was definitely a throw back to the 60's, which we saw a lot of at fashion week. This kind of reminded us of Ali Macgraw and Ryan O'neal in "Love Story".

Amouage's Library Collection is one of the most luxurious perfume collections in the world. First launched in July 2010, the Library Collection pays poetic homage to the art of living, the collection unfolds a contemporary face to the House of Amouage while preserving the elegance and effortless classicism known the brand is known for. The frangrance house recently launched their sixth perfume, Opus VI. The new mesmorizing scent studies the nature of memory and romantic love. Coming from the frangrance family of amber, woody, leather and olfactory notes of sichun pepper, patchouli, sandalwood, and St Thomas bay. Born of the age-old mastery of haute parfumerie, this enduring and emotional fragrance created by Amouage creative director Christopher Chong was inspired by the power of erasing, destroying and re-inventing unwanted and painful memories. “Personal memories are an eclectic and fragmented journey of our lives. They are a source of profound knowledge in the form of diaries and memoirs deep within the recesses of one’s mind,” says Chong.
The re-formulated amber tone is perfected with the use of periploca which give the perfume a almond-like undertone. Frankincense and sichuan pepper were added for intensity. The base radiates with the a golden warmth of ambranum, rounded off with fragments od woody, leather and cistus notes. The perfume cost around $430 for 100ml bottle. www.amouage.com

(New York, NY) Marchesa Designer and Co-Founder Georgina Chapman and Co-Founder Keren Craig present their Resort 2013 collection, inspired by childhood memories of a beautiful English garden party.
Contrasting rich hues of fuchsia and blue with soft tones of rose, ivory, and grey, the collection embodies an elegant soiree set amongst the bold color of a tulip garden. Designed with lace with layered tulle overlay, corded laser-cut lace with structured shoulders, and draped chiffon with embroidered details, the collection presents a range of options from colorful cocktails and gowns to tea-length evening coats. Using mother of pearl accents, Chapman created a hand-embroidered “abstract flower” pattern that presents a unique view on floral while remaining true to the elegance of eveningwear.
Alongside their ready-to-wear, the designers debuted a complementary collection of their signature handbags. The Resort handbag collection features a range of silhouettes including versatile day-to-evening bags in vivid exotics and delicately embellished crystal miniaudieres and envelope clutches.
