    Style Suggestion: Less is More

    0 comments /
    A few weeks ago we did a post on the art of looking effortless. Continuing with that in mind, here's our next tip: when it comes to accessorising, less is more. Accessorising can make an outfit. But it can also break it. Too much and it looks try hard. And it suggests a lack of confidence in the strength of your clothing choices without it. Keeping it paired back shows self-assurance: you know you and your outfit look great, so you didn't need to overcompensate with accessories. One frequent mistake is wearing several pieces of jewellery AND a stand out...

    Made in Italy: Mantuan Street Style

    0 comments /
    I'm now back from my travels in - yes, you guessed it - Italy. During the past fortnight I've explored the beautifully romantic Medieval city and UNESCO World Heritage Site of Manuta. Naturally, I kept a keen eye out for anything style related and the city did not disappoint. I was delighted by the eclectic range of aesthetics to be exhibited, as well as the level of sophistication and attention to detail to be spied even down the narrowest of side streets. I will discuss my discoveries in a later post. For now, I shall concentrate on the Italian street...

    The Art of Looking Effortless

    0 comments /
    Effortless = confidence. Confidence = style. The most important aspect of looking effortless is attitude. Within the men’s style scene the term ‘sprezzatura’ is one of the highest of compliments. The Italian concept encourages a 'sartorial nonchalance'; to hide all care and effort put into an outfit with an air of indifference. And this is just as applicable to women.If you’ve put a fantastic outfit together, but seemingly couldn’t care less about it, that screams confidence. It looks as if you just threw it on without any real consideration and automatically happened to look fabulous. So to achieve real effortlessness,...

    The Fabric of India: an insight into India's fascinating textile heritage

    0 comments /
    On Saturday 3rd October, the V&A opened its doors to its latest star exhibition: ‘The Fabric of India’. I had the pleasure of previewing it and, given the V&A’s reputation for exceptional fashion exhibitions, and the fact this was the first major exhibition ever that has purely focused on Indian textiles, I had high expectations.My standards were also set by the fact I travelled around Northern India last March on a once-in-a-lifetime trip and, whilst it didn’t focus on them, textiles were a recurring theme. In Jodphur I visited an amazing warehouse producing the finest quality pieces for international names...

    Dear Fashion Labels, Coolness doesn't have an age limit

    0 comments /
    Last August, before The-Bias-Cut.com's founder Jacynth discovered the fantastic designers featured today, she set out to understand more about age-prejudice within the Fashion Industry. What she discovered was disappointing, but only spurred her on more: A few days ago I went to some trade shows to uncover labels ideal for The-Bias-Cut.com. But, whilst I was presented with hundreds of stunning collections, I left bitterly disappointed. Expectantly there were a limited number of designers whose outfits would be ideal for women past their 40s. But I was also dissatisfied by the clothing that supposedly spoke to the over 40s market. There...
