On the other side of the pond #NYFW has been trending on our social media, showcasing the latest collections from designers around the world.
Let’s bring that focus back over here to the UK and check out the AW15 collection from one of the most popular new UK brands popping up on our news feeds. If anyone can give you inspiration on a Monday morning it’s this lot: From a young UK designer who had seen a gap in the market for their style, starting out with just an online presence, teaming up with bloggers and fashionistas to promote themselves and gain fans – you will probably now recognise the Hot!Mess brand being marketed on a Topshop shop floor near you!
Created by a young girl in Leicester who would raid her Grandma’s wardrobe for fashion inspiration after failing to find garments that excited her or were unique enough on the highstreet. Tayla Blue created the concept of Hot!Mess in 2013 and now has many celebrity sporters including Cara Delevingne, Pixie Lott and the Little Mix Girls, even Kylie Jenner has been spotted in the brand!
After starting out with some sporty pieces which included the Baziic range of hot pants and crop tops, last season moved towards a more colourful, summer tone and was all about sexy swimwear and colourful two pieces (the apples n pears set was one of my summer favs! https://instagram.com/p/2s2eFxqZQz/?taken-by=lexiecarducci along with the popcorn tee which I wore on my Birthday https://instagram.com/p/2eOnwoKZdT/?taken-by=lexiecarducci).
Hot!Mess have just released their Autumn/Winter collection and it’s gorgeous! Moving away from the sportyness for the minute, this season sees thick jumpers, cowl necklines and suedette take centre stage, all in neutral colours so perfect for purchasing basics, of course there are the few absolute stand out gems that catch the eye too! Here’s my favourites…
Smoke Knitted Jumper – £45
Bodycon Knitted Dress – £38
Suede effect skirt – £28
Knitted vest – £34
Suede effect leggings – £32
I’ve already taken fashion inspo from this season, here’s my take on the casual knit jumper with thigh high booties!
The collection is available online and in some Topshop stores in the UK (including Oxford Street, Lakeside, Cardiff and Leicester) as well as Selfridges Manchester and Birmingham.
