THE NOVEM & KNIGHT LAUNCH


We have been working on Novem & Knight, our new clothing brand, for around a year and a half and we are now finally open for business! We wanted to start it off with a bang so put lots of effort into trying to put together a fun, stylish and inviting launch party and I think it went well!

So many lovely friends came to see the collection and have a few drinks with us and I'm so happy to have so many people's support - Thank you to everyone who came!
(Also a massive thank you to Mahiki for our bespoke cocktails and our afterparty!)







If you haven't heard of our new range, it has been created and designed by myself and my partner Jason.
It is hand-made here in London and our aesthetic is to be minimal, clean, stylish and also easy to place amongst your own wardrobe.
This is only the beginning, we have so many big plans for N&K and many more collections on the way. If you'd like to know even more check out our website at http://www.novemknight.com.

I want to thank you all for your support, those who have already bought a piece, or those who have tweeted or messaged us about the launch with so much positivity!

We hope very much that you like the pieces and the website :)

THE WHITE ROLL NECK

Jumper - GANNI | Skirt - Urban Outfitters | Shoes - River Island | Bag - ASOS

I did feel slightly like I was about to step into someones wedding...but I really wanted to style up this beautiful floral skirt from Minkpink and we were headed to check out a cute little town near us which I thought rather complimented this outfit.
It was quite breezy so I didn't really want to wear a crop top or something teeny on top so I balanced out the femininity of the skirt with this cosy roll-neck jumper and just tucked it in so that it wasn't totally unflattering with this skirt.
I wanted a bit of height and these heels from River Island are perfect because they're really comfortable (a MUST for me) and very minimal looking but with a small heel.
 It feels like summers on its way!

THE LACEY MIDI


Top - Brandy Melville | Skirt - Zara | Heels - Topshop | Bag - Topshop | Jacket - Allsaints



It took a while to hunt down this skirt in my size but I finally got there! I found it in Zara, I am ecstatic that crochet and lace are very 'on trend' this summer because I adore the fabric and the whole aesthetic.
I nabbed this bag from Topshop, I reminds me of the Alexander Wang styles and the colour should go with anything I choose to wear during summer.
I was trotting around Soho and found myself in a haberdashery shop where I spotted this fluffy...pom pom ball? Anyway, It reminds me of the fendi accessories but is MUCH cheaper!
I got it for £20 which I think is rather good as it looks and feels very nice quality.
I felt very feminine and slightly retro in this outfit and I loved it. When the sun is out it just feels right!

I ADORE...

Sometimes I don't have a particular product or outfit of the moment that i'm coveting, but rather multiple things that I am currently enjoying in life or which are new additions...
1. I was re-watching 'The September Issue' recently and it reminded me that I had wanted Grace Coddington's book for ages. It was something I never took the plunge for, so I plodded down to Waterstones and picked it up (£10 off because it was scruffy - yey!)
 Grace is a former fashion model and is currently the creative director of American Vogue, Loving this beautiful memoir so far. 

2. Tom Ford's Fleur de Portofino is unlike any other perfume I own. Every time I smell a new Tom Ford perfume I tend to think the same thing! This one is the polar opposite of my Velvet orchid and is a new addiction of mine now that it is warming up, but also who can resist this precious bottle? 

3. This Fedora from ASOS is such a beautiful colour and is seamlessly designed. Most of all I love it because it fits my larger-than-life head as it comes in two different sizes. (It also comes in different colours) *Its sold out in this colour now! 

4. I'm back to light salads for lunch alot of the time as summer approaches. I'm forever creating new wacky and wonderful creations. Perhaps like a salad version of Willy-wonka but instead of planning what i'm doing, i'm usually pulling old cans of beans and tuna out of the kitchen cupboards to pull something (anything!) together. 


6. I've been slowly filling up the sad and lonely looking frames scattered about the house which I often flit around London collecting. Printing photos always takes me back to the 'old days' and makes me appreciate the act/art of photography alot more.
(Frames are from Homesense + Oliver Bonas)

7. I picked these up from Anthropologie (< Link) and not much more needs to be said, other than I am waiting for some goddamn British sun! Camaaaaaaan!
(They are sleepwear technically but I care not!)

8. Tis' the season for pretty flowers. I often just hunt for ones which are on sale in M&S or Sainsburys and as long as they don't look like they are dying I take them home and give them a little love!

Hope you enjoyed this post, do let me know what you're adoring at the moment :)
