So February has arrived and true to form it looks like being a full on month of fashion for Gather&See. From stylish Valentines Day gift ideas and a sample sale to end all sample sales to a preview of London Fashion Week and new arrivals at G&S, we have a whole lot of love for this all too short month. Get stuck in right in….
WHAT TO DO….
Ok so Valentines Day can be a bit of a damp squib. Men never understand that ‘I don’t want anything, don’t worry about it’ actually means ‘Yes I want something and it better be good’ (to be fair, why should they?!) and expectations are invariably unmet. It is also possibly the worst night of the year to go out - overpriced menus, naf music and restaurants full of couples whispering sweet nothings doesn’t really do it for us. So the solution?! A simple, stylish piece of jewellery from Gather&See that will blow droopy garage bought carnations out of the water, of course!! We are making it even easier to get right with 10% off all accessories until 14th Feb. Promocode: ‘LOVE’.
WHAT TO DO….
London Fashion Week at Somerset House
We might be a touch biased but of all the Fashion Weeks London HAS to be the best. Full of creativity, exciting young designers and with an eye watering schedule, it is certainly one not to be missed. We recommend checking out Christopher Raeburn who produces stunning, sustainably produced pieces - the SS15 collection was fabricated from recycled silk parachutes! If you can’t wangle yourself into a show be sure to grab a coffee and do some people watching - poseurs, editors and bloggers all dress up to the nines for the street style photographers making for amusing viewing.
London Fashion Week - 20th - 24th Feb http://www.londonfashionweek.co.uk/
WHAT TO EAT….
CAKE, at Gather&See Sample Sale at The Pigeonhole, Camberwell!
After a successful first sale at our very favourite cafe in sunny Camberwell, we are delighted to be back for more. The sale will include massive reductions on AW14 and SS14 with a few previews of our exciting new collection. Not only that but The Pigeonhole Cafe serves the very BEST coffee in London and truly exquisite cakes. Enough said. Saturday February 21st, 1pm - 9pm @ The Pigeon Hole Cafe, 2 Datchelor Place, SE5 7AP
WHAT TO WEAR…
New Season Beaumont Organic & Lalesso
We are delighted to have received our first taste of SS15 stock from ethical fashion heroes Beaumont Organic and Lalesso. Beaumont Organic’s beautifully made organic dresses will be our go to pieces for now and the spring - minimum effort is required with these little numbers and they are great for layering. For those of you heading off for a little winter sun (lucky devils!) Lalesso’s bikinis are simply divine, and of course eco-friendly and fair trade made in sunny South Africa. Swoon.
