2014 World Cup jersey collection: My Bro

In June, Brazil will play host to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and My Bro have created a wonderful collection of athletic jerseys for dogs. There are 32 designs in total each representing the qualifying countries for this years World Cup.  Each item is created with the same quality and attention to detail as real jerseys. Using sublimation printed panels on active dry mesh, for lasting prints. Active, athletic polyester mesh, with breathable qualities for comfort and movement, all held together with a heavy duty construction - these jerseys are built to last!

All of My Bro jerseys are made in Brooklyn, New York by “Alexander Campaz, dog enthusiast, designer and maker of cool things”. Campaz began designs sports wear at just age 12 when he created the apparel for the football team he played for alongside his brother and father. He has many brands under his belt of design and is now attempting to launch My Bro as a new brand.

Campaz used the worlds largest fundraising platform for creative projects - Kickstarter - to try and raise $16,000 in order to cover the cost of printing, manufacturing and sewing these incredible garments. Unfortunately the campaign was unsuccessful, but never fear you can still keep up-to-date with the My Bro goings ons by checking out their facebook page.

What makes these jerseys amazing is their cute factor. As soon as you see the doggy photoshoot of sweeties Bacchi and Maya in these tops you can’t help but let out an “aw”! They’re super adorable and judging by the fabric used and the way they’re made, they’re going to be durable too. The jerseys come in a range of sizes meaning every single one of your little champs can be properly kitted out for the FIFA World Cup!

WILDSTAR Clutch Bags is a unique handmade accessory brand that has launched their S/S'14 collection on the first of February this year. Each piece is a one-off using recycled leather that is crafted and handmade by the creative director and founder of the brand Sam Austin-Cooper. His vision was to create a collection of handmade leather bags in luxurious colours and textures. With the addition of sumptuous velvet stitching, satin, studs and fringing means that owning a piece from WILDSTAR will ensure a feeling of safety in knowing that you will never be caught with another fashionista wearing the same bag.

Created with a philosophy stating that everything deserves a second chance, their incorporation of reclaimed and recycled leathers means a sustainable product that benefit not just the customer but everyone: “recycling helps our future and the generations that come after us”. The leathers used are inspected to give a high quality performance when made as clutch bags and have a brilliantly soft and vintage feel.

In their next season’s collection, stunning pastel hues will be added and enriched with velvet and studs, making it the most striking summer combination to date! Available via their website and through their various stockists such as Fall in Love Fashion, this new collection continues to impress.

WILDSTAR has also been listed in a number of celebrities’ favourites including Penny Lancaster who was seen several times with Rod Stewart holding a CAPRI Crocodile Clutch Bag, which is sure to make trends on the red carpet.

Gorman: A/W'14

This fashion destination knows no limits, with quirky collections that play with patters, fits and materials; you couldn’t have more fun when getting dressed.

 The collection starts with a Winter Harvest theme, which a deep blue background and eye-popping vegetables in multi-colours dotted around. These can be paired with something equally vibrant and plain, or be mixed with another pattern, creating fashion mania. The A-line dresses showed in this collection have a sense of class mixed with youthful fun, making playtime not just for toddlers.

Denim and deeper colours of burgundy and rust make an appearance also, with a more structured tone to them, suggesting rigidity, but mentioning nothing about boredom in the patterns. The dresses introduce a flared aspect, with a ruched in waist that enhances the figure, retaining the playful vibe.

The patterns then become more eclectic again, with a vintage tee dress being paired with a modern blue jacket, and a paint stroke pattern, an autumnal feel can be seen through the clothing. Oversized clothing is also displayed in this collection, hanging off the frame but layering over the other items. Another loud pattern is displayed, with the same blue background, but with rich yellow, red and blue rough patterns of leaves, trees and lines scattered over the items, again looking fun.

Finally, a touch of pale, metallic glamour is introduced into the collection, with a long-line cream lace dress, contrast colour pant-top ensemble, metallic spot jumper and another pattern clash to finish the collection. The brand resonates easy-going fun, and any buyer would automatically be ready for a good time, any time. So prepare early for the after-summer anti climax, and get playful with Gourman.

Wild Things by Kirsty Hartley

Wild Things is a new dress label for children offering simple, versatile clothing and accessories with a fun and funky contemporary twist. 

Your little ones will love to wear the strong colours and simple imagery shown on these clothes and grown-ups like the subtle retro influences and elements of childhood nostalgia.

The collection is influenced by the simplicity of Scandinavian design, 60s and 70s styling and random naïve elements and whimsical details that appeal to children.

All items are made in batch production scale at the heart of Lancashire, England. Clothing is available in sizes 0-8 years. There seems to be a signature design embedded on the children’s clothing; we adore the apron-like feel on the majority of the girls’ collection as well as the infamous onesie incorporated for both girls and boys. 

The simple yet eccentric designs of the depicted wild animals work very well for any children wearing it so if this isn’t included in your must-have list, then we're not sure what will!

The brand is short listed by Junior Magazine for Best New Brand – Emerging New Talent 2013 and has been mentioned in Mollie Makes as well as the newspaper, The Guardian as a suggestion listed for Top 10 Christmas Gift Guide for toddlers.

Kirsty Hartley, the owner and designer of the team at Wild Things said, “I pride myself on creating colourful contemporary clothes with a truly handmade feel, using detail and techniques which show true craftsmanship, enlisting the support of two outstanding machinists during busy periods.”

The statement collaboration: ASOS x HYPE

Widely recognised as an urban label with a global influence, Hype is a fashion brand with attitude.

The renegade fashion label which started mid-2011, has announced its collaboration with online fashion and beauty retailer ASOS. Comprised of a fully monochrome palette and entirely print free, the collection manages to retain all the insubordinate inclinations of the brands previous work.

This collection gives us a taste of mystery. With a dark aesthetic, we see tense, edgy lines contrast with bold, brassy branding. The pieces are ubiquitous yet still totally unique- working to the brands strengths. Shadowy blacks wrestle with blinding, moonlight whites while all pieces remain minimal yet sumptuous.

What with Arab culture becoming more and more prominent, especially in the cyber world and int he fashion world, we also see the use of arab-inspired calligraphy to create a modern twist on the Hype slogan, emblazoned across plain white tees. Prices range from £25 to £40; totally affordable and worth it.

Marium Ul Haq

Containing 18 statement, must have pieces, the collaborative collection is on sale now, available exclusively from Asos. You can also watch the short collection video here.
