Yesterday we got the privilege to attend the Scoop and the City trade-show, where fresh designers present their spring/summer 2017 lines. Not only did we view the new collections (and speak to the fabulous designers behind them), but we also ran the Twitter and Instagram for the event! Read more to see some of our favorite designers and their work, with themes ranging from Indian chic to soft and flowing with also a hint of asymmetric disco touches.
Using pom-poms, tassels, bright colors (juxtaposed with brown), and even the evil eye, the Middle East was truly captured in in Ruth Erotokritou’s knit wear! Their beachy bags had us truly seeing double!
In creating a paisley type of design, Ziio jewellery uses a combination of semi-precious stones, silver, and Murano glass beads to create her eclectic and fascinating pieces.
While her husband Matthew Gould was the British ambassador to Israel, Celia Gould began taking photos of the beautiful nation. Years later, Celia has taken these images and printed them onto beautiful silk scarves, providing consumers with gorgeous pieces of the country! Definitely one of our favorites from the day.
Corita Rose’s small bags with vibrant, lively colours and patterns had us going mad! The wild and fun nature of these bags encaptured us yesteday.
When walking past Lemon Jelly’s stand, not only were we drawn in by the wonderful scent of lemon, but also the brand’s stunning shoes! From boots to sandals to sneakers, Lemon Jelly produces the most durable, shiny, fashionable shoes that are not only wearable, but comfortable!
Cabinet Jewellery’s vibrant collection for this coming season really caught our eye. The Swarovski Peach Pearl Sequin Pom Pom earrings were among some of the beautiful statement pieces they were presenting.
Save My Bag
Who doesn’t love a comfortable, stylish tote? Save My Bag has created fashionable bags in stunning colors and patterns, that are also washable! This simple but original idea made Save My Bag one of our favorites of the day!
Fun colours, patterns, and textures were all involved in St Erasmus‘s S/S collection. Using pearls, pearls, and more pearls, St Erasmus had us loving their collection from the first glimpse!
When first seeing Knitss’s collection, we were astonished by both the colours and the athletic fabric. This collection is definitely wearable, but with a creative, edgy touch.
We got a sneak peak preview of Lulu Guinness’s collection for this coming season and all we can say is that it most definitely lives up to the fabulousness of the brand.
Ever since 1876, GH Bass has been creating and recreating the loafer, and yesterday we saw a new spin on the style! Using fringe, colour, and other unexpected alterations, these shoes were one of our favorites, as we sure love a classic with a spin!
With pom-poms being a trend for the S/S 2017 season, we were astonished at how Kate Spade took the approach- jewels in the shape as pom-poms! This original approach had us excited for the rest of their collection to come.
Following the African inspired trend that was present throughout many of the brands at the trade show, Sherene Melinda displayed her new leather cross body bags and handbags for the season. Varying textures and vibrant colours were the main focus of the collection with the signature Springbok hair-on-hide feature on every bag.
Since African and Indian themes were in for this season, it’s only appropriate that Petusa Paris played upon these ideas. Using large feathers, raffia, and safari colors, these hats caught our attention!
Draping clothing was a prominent theme at this year, especially seen by Wolford Fashion, who even had their manikins lounging around! These louche pieces were wearable, stunning, and had us excited for S/S 2017
Overall, we had an amazing time at the Scoop Trade Show and added a bunch of new designers to our radar. For more information on Scoop and the City 2016 click here.
