I’ve chosen this pretty floral necklace (from trusty Primark, of course) to dress up a casual jersey dress!
From soft and feminine to military chic there were many different faces to H&M’s most recent catwalk show in Paris this week. The khaki green sweater dresses, knee high black boots and black patent bombers made for an edgier look, although this was occasionally softened somewhat through fluffy fur coats, pretty lace detailing and silky slip dresses. Elsewhere in the show we were shown long, soft, cashmere coats, in both navy and khaki, that were a refreshing step away from the sugary sweet pastel versions we’ve been seeing. Navy seemed like the new black for this show, giving us a classic look, but this didn’t take away from the youthful glow-it wasn’t long before we saw clashing animal print, sequins and pretty turquoise hues (not forgetting those amazing clashing orange/khaki colour combos).
H&M have managed to find a perfect balance through the use of simple shapes, rich colours and the mixing of different textures, for a tough, but feminine, approach to dressing.
A new blog for Trapped- I Love the abstract prints for this capsule collection!
Founded in 2012, Wreck Clothing has managed to establish itself quickly as a luxury streetwear brand thanks to their abstract designs and versatile pieces. This year saw the 17 year old founder release a capsule collection of over-sized t-shirts that range from bold logos and leather detailing to the more abstract digitally reworked prints. The brand holds a unique approach to prints, with inspiration stemming from both art and architecture, including the statues of London, that are then printed onto soft, sports luxe fabric that ensures high quality clothing. Even with such abstract prints, the designs remain extremely wearable-from being layered up to being worn simple for a clean, urban vibe.

This is what I wore for a meal Saturday night. I teamed it with a leather bomber jacket, black tights and black wedged heels! I’ve been wanting a tartan top for ages and this one can be dressed up or down- I love the cute collar detail (I jazzed it up with a chunky chain necklace from Peacocks). I originally wanted a skort to go with this look but I had to settle for this one instead, which is still quite a nice shape.

Well that didn’t take long did it? I knew the McDonald’s inspired accessories from Moschino’s most recent show would make for great street style, but I didn’t expect to see it quite so soon! Here are some of the looks that have been seen in Milan only a few days after that Moschino show that everyone is talking about.
Heavily influenced by McDonalds, Spongebob Squarepants, crisps and chocolate wrappers, it is safe to say that Moschino definitely put themselves back on the fashion map yesterday after Jeremy Scott debuted his first collection for the brand. I have never been so split over how I feel about a collection before, but what I do know is that I’m excited to see what Jeremy Scott will bring us next, surely it can only get more eccentric?
Whether you love or hate this collection, there is no question that it brings quirkiness from Moschino at it’s best; fun, vibrant and unexpected!

We have seen many designers over fashion week change the direction of their brand’s usual aesthetic, but Ferretti has done this the best so far. The usual Ferretti collection would be romantic, light and airy, but at MFW yesterday the collection took a darker turn that led to a luxurious, almost couture, runway show. Inspired by an ‘animated forest’ the collection was full of rich textures, prints and colours to give an enchanting, ethereal feel. With simple and natural silhouettes, the collection’s many textures spoke volumes- we saw feather lined hems, fur lined collars and bark like textures that were created through the layering of felt, silk and chiffon across the whole collection, where even sandals were adorned with soft feathers. This, mixed with the luxurious hand painted prints, intricate embroidery, mossy green shades and dark metallic hues, gave us an inspirational collection that reaches to a wide audience. From fluffy green jumpers, gorgeous ethereal gowns and the clever vine like sandal straps that twisted around the ankles of models, Ferretti managed to outdo herself with this collection, thinking outside the box to create a wearable, but couture inspired, collection.
I wasn’t too impressed with the fashion line up at the Brits this year, but here are the top three looks of the evening…
An edgier look from Rosie Huntington Whiteley, who wore Saint Laurent.
Rita Ora stunned in this yellow, jewel encrusted dress by Prada.
Beyonce shone (as usual) in this glistening Vrettos Vrettakos number.
London fashion week blog for Trapped Magazine!!
British fashion has become world renowned thanks to our eclectic street style, iconic fashion designers and the influential shows that take place during London Fashion Week. Thanks to the likes of Vivienne Westwood’s punk rock, Alexander McQueen’s theatrical styling and Burberry’s classic, but cool, British feel, London Fashion Week is one of the most anticipated events in the fashion calender, and as the most recent LFW comes to a close it is safe to say that no part of the event disappointed. We saw many up and coming designers, such as the graduates of Central Saint Martins , who showcased the fact that British fashion is becoming more innovative, in both menswear and womenswear, although this is unsurprising considering the great fashion heritage and history they have as inspiration. London Fashion Week has allowed us to celebrate our eccentric style and classic heritage, both on and off the catwalks over the…

Frida Giannini, Creative Director of Gucci, has indicated a move away from the brand’s traditional black attire in their newest collection, saying that she wanted ‘a new palette and clean lines’ from their most recent AW14 collection.With a more optimistic, youthful edge, we can clearly see that this has been achieved in the sugary sweet pastel shades and shorter A-Line skirts and dresses that was showcased earlier on today in Milan. With soft pastel hues we saw fluffy shearling coats, double breasted trench coats and adorable, high-waisted A-line skirts in an array of metallic and matte pastel shades. Contrasted against this were darker, more autumnal, shades of olive green and deep red, as well as the obvious appearance of snakeskin, in youthful shades of yellow and blue, printed on both silk blouses as well as knee high, patent leather boots. Despite feminine colours, youthful prints and soft, luxurious textures, this collection aims to represent the modern Gucci woman, albeit with a 60’s edge.
