Held from the 8th-10th July, this was the 4th season for the London based trade fair “Scoop International”. They showcase over 200 international brands to buyers and “fashion-y” people and hope former will buy something! Scoop is located in The Saatchi Gallery on the Kings Road, which is a pretty splendid looking building. Inside it’s a bit of a maze, spread over 3 floors, with different rooms and passages off the main atrium… but getting at bit lost is actually quite good as there are so many brands to fall upon. Have a look at the website for more information (www.scoop-international.com).
There were plenty of well known brands such as Filippa K, Sarah Pacini and Coccinelle but I was looking for something a bit different. Here are a few brands that caught my eye…
If you read my Post “How old is too Old” you’ll know that I rather like Gwen Stefani and her style (she designs L.A.M.B.), so when I read that her collection would be at Scoop I was very excited to see the S/S 13 range. It was sporty/rock-chick (a bit like Gwen), the colours were bright and there were lots of prints. Caroline Brien from L.A.M.B. modelled her outfit below perfectly. I especially liked the pink silk trousers as they’re easy to dress up and down – plus they’re stylish and comfortable = the perfect mix!!
Described in the Scoop brochure as, “A contemporary luxury ready-to-wear line that revels in the splendour of premium silks and knit fabrics in vivid colours and innovating billowing silhouettes.” I just thought that Zayan was incredibly eye-catching in a very fun and playful way, with vibrant colours and unusual fabric combinations. The handbags were amazing as you can see from the photos, but not for the faint hearted! I love the below jacket…
Nocturne Jewllery (www.nocturne.co.uk)
I love bold statement necklaces so this jewellery really drew my attention. The stunning jewellery is from ready-to-wear brand Nocturne who are launching an online pop-up shop dedicated to their accessories on the 5th October (www.nocturne.co.uk/shop).
