Ben Sherman Spring 11- another sneak preview!

November 5, 2010

This week, BiglightBuzz was invited down to the press day for… you’ve guessed it… Ben Sherman’s new collection.

For Spring they’ve built upon the brand’s strong heritage but really let loose with the colour, picking up on wearable workwear staples, and all the things you really, really want to wear, from parkas to plaids to double-breasted cardigans.

First up, they’re offering their signature desert boots in a rainbow- literally- of colours. Can we have them all?

Here’s a Ben Sherman poncho– that’s a lightweight, summer cape! It’s great to see Ben Sherman pushing out into more directional pieces. We’re looking forward to seeing this in a fair few fashion shoots next season- and hopefully on the backs of some fashion-forward males come festival time.

There’s some beautiful checks for next season, plus ace watches, sunglasses and leather wallets.

We’re loving the trend for thick, chunky-soled shoes too. Wear with rolled-up chinos, bright socks and plaid shirts for the coolest take on the workwear look- mixing brogues and boots in soft suede, we think they’re gonna set the blogosphere alight.

Last but not least… some checked hats and a checked satchel to finish things off. These will all be dropping into stores and online from after Christmas, but like always, feel free to post on your blog and sign up as an affiliate here to earn commission from your blog.

A sneak peak at Ben Sherman Spring 11…

November 1, 2010

This week, Buzz will be going around the twice-yearly fashion press day circuit, checking out the latest from the greatest. We’ll be having updates from all the brands, including Firetrap, Fullcircle and Fly53.

Meanwhile, here’s a peek at Ben Sherman‘s new collection. Suffused with bold, zingy colours that haven’t been around for seasons, it picks up on workwear detailing with cool, lightweight anoraks, knits and rolled-up chinos for a fresh take on Ben Sherman’s dapper aesthetic.


For autumn 10, they’ve also got this Limited Edition classic Prep-style blazer, exclusive to their Savile Row store for AW 10. While it’s not online, there’s similar patterned numbers including this cool check blazer and some dapper peacoats.

“The inspiration came from the old school, back-to-college prep look. The traditional blazoring fabrication is wool blended with cotton, in a bold stripe in classic preppy colours. It is cut on the short Camden block, with three-button fastening and blazer buttons, 5-button functioning cuff, patch pocket on the chest and jetted front pockets.”

The crest was created by Ben Sherman designers, and is a crown with a laurel wreath encasing a globe, to represent a global brand with strong British roots.

Hed Kandi: Fur Coats and Stephanie Davis at the MOBO awards

October 29, 2010

Hed Kandi fashion is just getting bigger and bigger. Hollyoaks’ Stephanie Davis (aka Sinead O’Connor- no, that really is her character’s name in the hit soap) was rocking this amazing jewel-encrusted, party ready frock at the MOBO awards, £75. We want one now! Perfect for the ever-looming circuit of winter festivities, office parties and of course, Christmas. Because there’s nothing we love more than a bit of festive bling. See more details here.

Fabulous magazine is also loving Hed Kandi’s hammered diamante cuff- well, why wouldn’t they? With a dash of 90s dressing-up box and just a sizzle of Dynasty-era Joan Collins outrageousness, this immense cuff is just one one of Hed Kandi’s ginormous selection, taking in studs and spikes, glitz and glamour and best offset with their animal head cocktail rings. Phew!

Hammered Diamante cuff, £20

Finally, the brand is also generously tooling up the nation against the cold in fabulous style by offering £20 off all their fur-coats. Some of the best-selling pieces so far from Hed Kandi, these give off more than a dose of jet-setting, vintage Carrie Bradshaw cool. We heart the Snow Leopard belted coat most, now at £100, but there’s gilets, shrugs and cosy mohair jackets too.

As always, click the link here to join up for free and contact us for any more information.

Snow Leopard coat, £100
