New Balance celebrates Grey Days throughout May

New Balance has  embarked on a multi-week celebration of Grey throughout May, shining a spotlight on both the new and classic expressions of the brand’s enduring legacy in its signature hue. The deliberate choice of Grey traces back to the 1980s when New Balance sought to craft superior running shoes. In a move as meticulously considered as any performance feature, Grey emerged as the color of choice.

Embodying the fearless independence at the heart of the New Balance ethos, Grey distinguished itself amidst competitors while seamlessly blending with the urban landscapes of concrete and asphalt where runners tread. Its versatility soon became apparent as Grey running shoes proved to be stylish staples suitable for any setting. Over the years, as models evolved with advancing technology and materials, Grey remained a steadfast emblem of New Balance’s timeless quality and style.

Photographed amidst the lush greenery and vibrant blooms of Parisian gardens, Petal invites us to immerse ourselves in the sensory delight of nature’s bounty. Each garment in this exquisite collection is infused with the essence of floral beauty, reflecting the intricate patterns and hues found in petals and blooms.

But Petal is more than just a celebration of floral aesthetics; it’s a journey of introspection and contemplation. Inspired by the profound lessons of gardens, the collection encourages us to embrace imperfection and embrace the cyclical rhythms of life.

The conscious brand you need on your radar

Redan is one of many brands hoping to re-shape the fashion landscape with its dedication to improving environmental responsibility.

In an era where fast fashion often fosters a culture of disposability, Sonali Prakash, the founder of Redan the Label, presents a refreshing alternative.

Redan aims to epitomise Sonali’s ethos of slow fashion, placing emphasis on craftsmanship, ethical sourcing, and longevity over fleeting trends.

Sustainability is not just a buzzword at Redan; it is a fundamental principle that Sonali hopes to become synonymous with her label. From endorsing small-batch production to using eco-friendly materials like organic cotton, many facets of Redan’s operations reflect their ongoing commitment to sustainability.

By forging partnerships with suppliers who share Redan’s sustainability ethos and prioritising fair wages and working conditions, the brand wants to cultivate a culture of responsibility across its supply chain. Details such as packaging choices—from cardboard to bio-plastics—are a deliberate steps towards minimising environmental impact.

New Now WOW from Marle

Drawing inspiration from the realms of poetry, sculpture, and design, Collection 02 embarks on a journey of exploration, seamlessly blending sartorial elegance with sculptural elements. Each garment serves as a canvas, evoking a sense of curiosity and inviting the viewer to delve deeper into its intricate details.

The collection artfully marries structural lines with an air of nonchalance, juxtaposing relaxed silhouettes with delicate accents that speak volumes when words fail us.

Oversized, textural pieces beckon us inward, offering a sanctuary of comfort and warmth amidst the chaos of the world. Feminine twists, intricate knitwear, and exposed seams intertwine to weave a narrative of inspiration throughout the collection, effortlessly oscillating between gentle hues of Water, Lakeland, and Sand, and timeless neutrals of Black, Ivory, and Buff.

Much like the ever-shifting perspectives of a piece of art, Collection 02 reveals new dimensions with every glance, speaking to the intricacies and nuances of its wearers. Defined only by our individuality, this collection celebrates the beauty of self-expression and the limitless possibilities that lie within each of us.

Nick Von K Unleashes The Kraken

Nick Von K designed a Kraken pendant in his very first collection when he launched the brand back in 2010.  Since then Nick has released many octopus inspired pieces which always manage to sell extremely well and Nick’s new range ‘The Kraken’ builds on this demand with a statement making collection of solid sterling silver and freshwater pearl pieces. 

“In this collection I’ve paired the kooky with the classic – luscious cultured pearls with the solid sterling silver Kraken front and centre. Pearls are the treasures of the ocean so it makes sense, but there’s something unusual going on with the combo that I love, the juxtaposition of the classic with a symbol of mythology, risk and adventure is what makes it work so well” says Nick.

The Kraken represents the ultimate sea beast that even the most fearsome of pirates feared, and the new Kraken collection makes a truly unique statement. “The Kraken is a symbol of high adventure, a true pirate accepts life comes with a risk – and the greater the risk, the greater the reward” enthuses Nick. Perhaps the Kraken is a metaphor to life, there’s always risk and potential devastation lurking underneath the surface, yet we choose to brazenly set sail regardless, leaving safe harbours behind for excitement and adventures unknown.

The Kraken collection includes a statement necklace; a giant solid sterling silver ring, plus a smaller, more easily wearable version too, drop earrings with a brilliant blue topaz, and sterling silver studs for everyday wear.
