Fashionistas favourite Blue Tones

London Fashion Week was just one of the September highlights but there are others to look forward to. The Autumn Equinox, when the daylight hours were as long as the night, was yesterday there is also a Red Moon soon and a Harvest Moon at the end of the month all signs that tell us Winter is on the way. There’s a nip in the air and the sun seems to have disappeared. Are you feeling a little blue? Good because so are the fashionistas and celebrities who have been having some very stylish blue moments. From the misty morning to the midnight hour the colour navy blue has become the new black in 2015. Victoria Beckham was spotted early on in a navy silk jumpsuit, a style that was also adopted by Alexa Chung on the front row at London Fashion Week. Always ahead of the fashion pack Kate Moss been snapped in a midnight blue suede dress and - wait for it -flat shoes. The other Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge meanwhile always carries off the smart but casual look in denim and a double breasted blazer and it looks as though this navy style has been adopted across the pond as seen on actress Jessica Alba. Midnight blue has also been the top tone for the premiere glitterati Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, Eva Longoria and Sandra Bullock have all sashayed down the Red Carpet in elegant eye-catching gowns. Sandra Bullock, who was nominated for an Oscar for her role in ‘Gravity’, wore, what Marie Clare described as “one of the most expensive Oscar dresses of all time”. The midnight blue Alexander McQueen gown cost a staggering forty thousand dollars!

The colour blue will help you make that transition into Autumn, perfect for town or country, dress down work days or dress-up evenings. We may no longer have blue skies but the blue tones are here to stay, check out some of our staple wardrobe favourites from Atterley.

Well Spotted. Front Row Trends from London Fashion Week

I'm loving the fact that I can now watch London Fashion Week on the Live Stream. The only teeny downside is not being able to see the textures, intricate details and embellishments up close so that I can truly appreciate the immaculate designs. Not so for celebrity fashionistas like the FROW Party at the Topshop Unique SS16 show which featured sharp tailored jackets paired with soft floaty dresses in loud spots and quiet delicate floral prints plus slick tailored jumpsuits and head to toe ‘70s vibe with leather and sumptuous faux fur accessories.
Joining Sir Philip Green and daughter Chloe on the front row were the doyenne of fashion, Anna Wintour, the darling of the fashion pack Alexa Chung, along with Suki Waterhouse, Cressida Bonas, Bella Thorne, Poppy Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn

Seen here Alexa Chung looks particularly relaxed yet demure in a navy jumpsuit. If  I was choosing an alternative outfit to fit her style I'd go for the pretty woodland print dress and a pair of soft suede loafer boots with that '70s Belted Duster coast slung over the shoulders.

Celebrity Seen. Step forward FKA Twigs

Step forward Tahliah Debrett Barnett, best known by her stage name FKA Twigs, a British singer/songwriter/producer and dancer. Just once in a while a truly unique artiste comes along, for me the last one was the 90s Icelandic experimental singer Bjork. 

I first saw FKA Twigs perform on BBC's "Later with Jools Holland" in September 2014. A beautiful mesmerizing performance both ethereal and striking with a dazzling sense of style. This flowing elegance and energy has seen her attain many accolades including:
  • Nominated for Mercury Prize Best British Album of 2014
  • Nominated for Brit Award 2014 - British Female Solo Artist/British Breakthrough Act
  • Nominated for NME Award 2015 - Best New Artist Best Video Clip (Two Weeks)
  • Nominated MTV Music Awards 2015 - Best New Artist (Pendulum) Best Cinematogrophy Best Visual Effects "Two Weeks"
  • Won You Tube Music Video Awards 2015 - 50 greatest artists and YouTube performances 
As if that wasn't enough in 2015 she and the equally gorgeous "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson became an item thus thrusting her into the global spotlight.

On Thursday she put on what was descibed by the press as a "racy show" at an exclusive party by MAC Cosmetics in celebration of London Fashion Week SS16. On stage she can be seen in fishnet bodysuits and bralets but she has also mastered an edgy street style as seen below at the BBC Studio in London, September 2015 wearing 'Wolf' by Carvela Kurt Geiger.

Add an edge to YOUR style with these chic over the knee boots from Carvela Kurt Geiger. Pushing boundaries, these striking velvet boots are sure to be another showstopper this season!
