Happy mid-week guys, I am still in the midst of Istanbul and loving being here. I really enjoy spending time with our Turkey team and actually chatting face to face with them instead of over email. I already know for sure next time I come here for work I will be staying over the weekend to visit more places and do more tourists things. I may even be persuade Joe to head out on a Friday to meet me out here for a weekend of exploring! Being out of the office visiting fabric mills and sourcing techniques always gets my creative juices flowing again. Seeing a fabric or technique gets me excited to design a whole new range! Being creative is my number one passion, I don't mind whether it's designing clothing/graphics or styling outfits, as long as I am being creative I am a very happy girl.
Knowing how much I enjoy seeing a project come together as a whole I always want to support fellow creatives in the same field as me. So when John Lewis asked me to be apart of their SS17 Kin campaign I jumped at the chance to support fellow creative like Jane Slater. This collection is casual meets formal with an artistic twist. The limited edition Kin collection has beautifully painted brush strokes for prints, making you feel like you are wearing a piece of art. The silhouettes are simple but have a very powerful touch to each piece.
I decided to pick out this printed oversized t-shirt and create a look very true to my own style and pair it with some boyfriend jeans. Here the washed jeans sit nicely against the blue tones of the printed t-shirt and to give me some height to this whole I have teamed my chunky wooden heels. I would love to know your thoughts on the collection which I included some key pieces below and on my outfit I have put together.
