Pressing on with the press day coverage, I popped over to Exposure’s gorgeous offices to have a quick sneak peek into what we have to look forward to from their clients this Autumn/Winter. What I like about Exposure is that they have a mix of clients from the likes of Basso & Brooke down to more high-street brands such as Biba and Pretty Polly. I’ve just picked a very brief selection of their extensive client list to write about.
I’m not a huge welly fan I must admit, mostly because I don’t have an actual need for them. If I were to head to a festival though, I’d definitely invest in some Hunters…and a private VIP pod-style accommodation with an actual working shower. Thanks to the likes of Kate Moss, the popularity of Hunters has exploded in recent years and they have become the welly-of-choice. Next season, they’re changing the conception of the common welly, coming in a range of lustworthy colours and very twee tweed version.
I didn’t actually know that Exposure represented ToyWatch, new client? I adore ToyWatch and have written about them quite a few times. Coming from a girl who has refused to wear watches for the last 10 years, that’s high praise indeed. For those of you not familiar with these covetable pieces of arm candy, I believe they actually started off life as a cheaper alternative for the jetset, I mean who wants to take a priceless Rolex on a skiing or jetskiing holiday? As you can tell from the gorgeous designs below, they became a bit of a cult hit themselves. My only problem has been trying to decide which colour to go for. Next season sees their signature brights going fluorescent. For the shrinking violets out there, you can opt for the subtle, sleek black with their signature colours making eye-catching accent.
Doc Martins always hold a special place in my heart. I’m old enough to remember wearing them ‘the first time around’, oh the joys of being an 80s baby. I remember begging my mum for the ankle boot version while the other girls wanted the boring flat version. DMs are anything but boring these days, with knee high, floral, bright, opalescent and heel versions available.
Last up on this whistle-stop tour we have the denim powerhouse that is Levis. I must admit, I usually only pay attention to their jeans but having seen the details and textures, I’ve fallen in love with their distressed belts, soft cottons and cosy knits too. I’m not sure if the dungarees are men’s or women’s, but they are just crying out to be rolled up and paired with a pair of killer heels and a fitted vest.
