Five Minutes With..

We took a few minutes out at our recent SS13 shoot to have a quick chat with our stylist Caroline!

photo

How long have you worked as a stylist?
About 5 years. Before that I worked in buying, but I needed something more creative, so I started assisting on shoots and it kind of took off from there.

What are your favourite trends for SS13?
I am loving the sports luxe trend. Casual sporty shapes and silhouettes in girly fashion fabrics, like chiffons and silks.

Any key pieces we should be buying for the season?
Monochromatic baseball jackets are a key piece for your wardrobe this summer. Not to be taken to literally though, think of a firm nod towards the varsity look with simple cuts and not too much of a preppy influence.

Meet Pop Couture’s new face – Ksenija

We took five minutes to talk Kate Moss and baking with Ksenija!

Stats: Height: 5’ 11” / Dress size: 8 / Birthplace: Russia

How long have you modelled for? 
4 years.

Why Modelling?
My friend who is a photographer asked me to model for him, and I found my passion. I love being in front of the camera!

Who inspires you? 
Kate Moss is amazing, but very extreme. My mother is my biggest inspiration, she is always pushing me to achieve and is definitely my moral compass.

Which designer’s do you admire? 
I love the clean and classic look, so designers like Calvin Klein and I love Dolce and Gabanna, they really know how to create a romantic, sexy, feminine look.

And when you’re not pulling poses……? 
I dance and I bake! I used to dance a lot back home in Russia and I bake a mean carrot cake! I love cake! 

Blue Jean Baby!

A staple piece in everyone’s wardrobe, denim has made the transition from functional work wear to key fashion statement! 

A sure-fire favourite of the famous and the fashion savvy, we take a look back some of the most memorable denim devotees!

1. Marilyn Monroe

2. Catherine Bach AKA Daisy Duke.

Daisy Duke ruled the roost in 70’s cult TV show ‘The Dukes of Hazard!’ and her penchant for denim cut offs became a ‘must-have’ piece for any dedicated and daring Daisy fan.

3. Thelma and Louise.

These 2 feisty friends managed to look effortlessly cool in bleached out mom jeans. The perfect denim double-act!

4. Brooke Shields!

Nothing comes between Brooke and her Calvins!

5. Kate Moss.

It’s thanks to Kate that we all poured ourselves into the skinniest of jeans. We love Kate’s, laidback look in these indigo wash skinnies.

6. Debbie Harry. 

Nobody works the double denim better than sex-kitten Debbie Harry.

Green With Envy

ImageA rich, vivid emerald hue was recently announced as Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2013 (Pantone 17-5641, to be precise). And, what with the much anticipated arrival of Saint Patricks’s Day madness, plus new movie Oz The Great And Powerful taking cinema goers by storm, is it any wonder we are loving green at the minute?!

b6afaf2906fee2551b08e54781f84465This precious gem has connotations of luxury, elegance and sophistication but also signifies growth and well-being as well as prosperity and regeneration; what could be better to improve this current economic climate?
8fa172a834656ab3d33736842cca5648So. What does that mean for fashion? Well, surprisingly this colour goes with everything! Literally. Emerald invigorates every colour in the spectrum. That’s because green is nature’s equivalent of a neutral colour. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute says, “The most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum”.

Emerald is a colour for all seasons making it perfect for those awkward transitional periods when the weather can’t decide. Spring introduces emerald as an accessory, slowly easing it into summer where it takes on a bigger role as a key player. Wear it with crisp white for an unexpected look or go bold in array of bright jewel tones. Autumn sees the arrival of statement layering and coats in key shapes whilst the end of winter brings the return luxe fabrics and textures for the party season.
