I'm not usually one for motifs, or colour in fact, but that's starting to change and 3.1. Phillip is responsible. Ever since Elin Kling sported his 'Ka-Pow' sweater during New York Fashion Week, I've been sold and so how everyone by the sounds of it. Both that style and his 'Break-Up' sweater have been seen on just about everyone and have been selling like hot cakes since hitting stores.
You can tackle the style in one of two ways. If, like me, you're still new to the whole statement prints and motifs game, make the sweater the statement and keep everything else muted. Alternatively you can go full-hog and team it with a statement block coloured skirt or pair of the printed trousers that we all can't get enough of this season.
Last week I was amongst a handful of journalists invited to celebrate the launch of MiH Jeans' new pop-up shop at The Gallery in Anthropologie. 'Coming Home: The Original London Jean' was the perfect name for the event, as the pop-up shop sits in the exact same spot on the Kings Road where the original London Jeans were first sold back in 1969 in what was then called, Jean Machine.
But that's not all. Alongside showcasing the London Jeans, the pop-up also featured a special selection of pieces from their new SS12 collection as well as their new Portobello line which is features a good selection of practical and easy to wear wardrobe ready pieces.
With the weather outside looking so dreary it's easy to forget that a thing called summer actually exists but MiH Jeans have given us faith with this behind-the-scenes video from their S/S12 look book shoot that they shot last summer. The short video shows model Ruby Aldridge running around in the countryside and basically doing everything we wish we could right now. So if there's anything that's getting us excited about summer right now, it's this.
