When it comes to PR companies, Boudoir PR can really hold their own. They represent some of the most fabulous (and affordable!) fashion and beauty brands around. We’re talking caviar manicures, incredible and innovative jewellery, shoes that make statements, and much more. Take a look at some of my favourite products coming up for Autumn/Winter 2012, below.
In order of appearance: Galibardy Jewellery, Lipsy Shoes, Missguided, Elizabeth Galton Studio, Denise Manning, Dolly Bow Bow, Johnny Loves Rosie, DuWop, Lip Rock, Ciate, Nourish Skin Range, Lola, and Nail Rock (with the new Meadham Kirchhoff nail wraps!).
Ed Meadham and Ben Kirchoff are the absolute masters of madness. For Spring/Summer 2012, the designer duo reached new heights of brand-synonymous wonderment. Unlike the tongue-in-chic vintage-bound pieces of their last few seasons, this was a super literal candy-coated extravaganza.
Underneath balloon-coated archways, a school of Courtney Love manqués danced out and routinely applied their rouge. Following them were the ‘real’ models dressed in almost the antithesis of their Spring/Summer 2011 collection; a collection which pushed and brilliantly overdid the ideas of female gender expectation. This season, it was a full embrace of “the women on the cake” (at one point, after another gaggle of schoolgirl ballerinas appeared, there was actually a Busby Berkeley-style arrangement of models on a gargantuan cake). We’re talking starlets, models, showgirls, beauty pageant queens, and princesses. Meadham said he wanted to take them off the cake, and put a real girl – non defined by but indulgent in feminine frippery – up there.
Every look was styled theatrically, yet each garment was individually wearable; checked-out button downs, hot pants, broderie anglaise, sculptured dresses, vintage cartoon appliques, baby-doll mixed with elaborate vintage shapes, and pastel-fluffed marabou coats. A dream come true for anyone who has ever liked the colour pink. There were many eyes that couldn’t stay dry. View Post

excellence, intense make-up
