LFW Style and Visual Observation

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: October 2nd, 2012

London Fashion Week kicked off to a good start, catwalk shows and presentations being presented hour by hour or overlapped, the courtyard at the Somerset House venue was a perfect place for style hunters to snap fashionistas in interesting and bizarre attires, key statement accessories, catch up with friends and make new friends…of course with the perfect backdrop of the Regency architecture creates ‘the shot’.  Here are some of the snaps above.

 Benetton: Vogue’s Fashion Night Out

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: September 17th, 2012

How was your fashion night out? Did you have a great time?  I heard it was buzzing, lively, busy and bigger than before.  At the flagship store on Oxford Circus, Benetton hosted a mini catwalk with models wearing the store’s latest Autumn Winter collection, there were yummy snacks gobbled up quickly by customers gone within seconds, sipping free drinks whilst being entertained by a live DJ set, shopping discount, and Queen of Hearts performed in front of customers and guests.  See you again next September!

 Style Me Amaze Me!

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: September 13th, 2012

As Autumn is fast approaching, it’s time to stock up some neat looking jumpers, knitted hats, snuggly scarfs and gloves.  Last week on Vogue’s Fashion Night (a full coverage to come soon), Benetton has launched their ‘Style Me Amaze Me‘ promotional campaign, it will be running until the 17th September.  Giving the customers the opportunity to mix and match one of their melange wool sweaters, such as a punchy orange Shetland with a contrasting purple chino, as seen in the campaign.  The point is, when you remix, you’ll win.  Purchasers of any top/bottom ensemble you will be rewarded a knit scarf as a free gift.

 Benetton Style: Nude

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: August 28th, 2012

There are days where you would dress in frumpy black or bright colours vice versa to suit the season and mood, but on a blasting hot heatwave it is impossible to wear dark colour letting the colour say black, absorbing the heat from the sun and end it feeling like steam sauna underneath a clothing, and bright colour that will blind others.  Neutral tones like white, off grey, beige and nude will help your body heat to cool down, tried and tested as seen above.

Shocked and disbelieved, the fashion world mourns the death of a style icon and fashion journalist Anna Piaggi, who passed away yesterday aged 81.

Vogue (Italia) Contributor Anna Piaggi, was a fashion commentator and contributed to various established Italian publication titles such as: La Settimana Incom, Epoca, Arianna and the like.  An eccentric fashion figure known for her pale blue hair, vibrant-flamboyant clothes and bright coloured make up.

Anna’s incredible styles will always be remembered and a perfect example of a true style icon. RIP Anna Piaggi.

 Benetton AW12 Man Collection

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: July 31st, 2012

Sophisticated and metropolitan, in perfect British style: the new United Colors of Benetton colletion for AW12.

In Britain, menswear is known for its eccentricity and unique taste in styling, matching and mis-matching patterns and textures, casual and smart, inspired from the popular culture such as music in East London.  You gotta love the indie-style denim looks here….how very James Dean.

 Benetton Style: Aquamarine

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: July 24th, 2012

Come rain or shine, the two month wet atmospheric downpour has come to an end… maybe, yesterday London has experienced one of the hottest temperatures this month at 26′C, today the heat will rise up to 30′C.  So, in tribute to the wet season finale I’m wearing head to toe in contrast in aquamarine colours – blues and greens, which reminds me of Benetton’s AW12 colour palette.  A big welcome to Summer, now I can’t wait to wear my flip flops.
