The Queen’s collection FW13 – by Pretty Little Things

(BAHRAIN, 2013) – ‘Pretty Little Things’ launched their FW13 collection, “The Queen’s collection”. The collection was inspired by Nada’s latest summer vacation to London, United Kingdom where she was inspired by the royal British Empire, Victorian buildings and castles. Queen Elizabeth II is known and admired for her elegancy and jewelry. The Queen’s collection is a hand-picked selection of statement necklaces and accessories that brings out the royal and elegant side of every woman.

The collection adds a splash of color and character to Fall/Winter’s dull outfits and is truly a statement. The collection is displayed as the Queen’s dressing table, with silver shabby chic jewelry boxes, silver side mirror as well as some British inspired props.

Pretty Little Things initially started back in March 2009 by two friends Nada and Noora where they made the headbands as a hobby. The brand started on the basis of handmade headbands which was the trend back in 2009, then expanded to different types of statement accessories and customized jewelry. Earlier this year, the brand celebrated its 4th anniversary with the floral headbands collection.
Today, Pretty Little Things latest collection is available at PINK Boutique in Al Aali Mall, Yazi in Seef Mall Bahrain as well as Walkin Closet in Burj Jassim Kuwait. For more information, follow @prettylittleposts_bh or email prettylittleposts@gmail.com

MULBERRY AUTUMN WINTER 2013 – Behind the scenes

Mulberry Autumn Winter 2013 - London Fashion Week - Arrivals & Front Row

Mulberry returns to the earthy landscape of the English countryside for
Autumn Winter 2013, exploring nature and the great outdoors. Botanical-inspired
prints make reference to the science and sorcery of flowers, with a rich dark
palette threaded with crisp and fresh accents. Inspirations include childhood
fables, flower fairies and the magic of the night sky. This English countryside
scene, so familiar in the daytime, becomes dark, seductive, powerful and
mysterious by night…

Woven into the Autumn Winter 2013 story is an autumnal palette of colour. Oxblood,
Midnight Blue and Black deepen classic Taupe and Camel. Flashes of jewel-like Emerald and
Neon Yellow appear, alongside preppy Oxford Blue.

Prints stem from iconic roots. English check is key, and uses size and scale to rework classic
check patterns in multiple fabrics. Bespoke prints translate seasonal inspiration into beautiful
visuals. Mini Meadows is a mass of woodland flowers, printed on black to offset colours
borrowed from the countryside by night. Finally a butterfly design uses contrast tones for
a repeat print on Midnight and Camel for a graphic print-blocked look.

Both print and check textures are used to build bold looks. Check is layered on check and print
used top to toe to bring new life to classic tailoring and traditional shapes. Layering is an
important part of the collection’s story; it gives depth to the print blocked looks, and plays
with the design juxtaposition between structured and relaxed styles for new proportions.

Outerwear makes reference to traditional English style with its chic nonchalance, throwing on
luxuriously soft, warm and beautifully cut coats to wrap up against the cold. Full bell sleeves
add drama to silhouettes, as does sumptuous Toscana sheepskin featured in multi-form on
coats and jackets for textural trim. On the same theme of casual elegance, capes are
introduced, cut in signature Mulberry leather, a continued interpretation of our craft heritage.

Leather subtly weaves through the rest of the ready-to-wear, on skater skirts and blouses and
on long leather gloves with trompe l’oeil detailing.

Knitwear is varied and detailed, from oversized mohair pieces to bonded compact-knit dresses
with a subtly structured shape. Trouser options are streamlined, kept to a classic crop or fitted
flare for the catwalk.

Accent detailing is intricate and elegant. Full sequin dresses and tops play with signature
check for a dazzling dash of sparkle, and the meadow flower inspiration is used for
delicate embroidery.

The Catwalk Collection introduces a new bag for Autumn Winter 2013; the Suffolk. Taking
inspiration from our iconic Bayswater, with its postman’s lock and internal leather strap detailing,
the Suffolk is loaded with heritage detailing as well as a new frame-topped closure to
complement the structured leather shape.

The Bayswater Shoulder also revisits our bag icon, in a neat shoulder bag style with a chic
top handle. On the smaller size the postman’s lock is replaced with a seasonal accent – two
intricately carved ladybirds taken from the Mini Meadows print design.
The Tasha collection’s clipper-inspired shape was introduced for Autumn Winter 2013 Main
Collection and is seen on the catwalk with a statement twist. Beautiful hardware is brought to
the forefront, reworking new metalwork such as the front luggage tag and buckle detailing.
One new shoe style is introduced on the catwalk, a high heel loafer with contrast coloured
lacquered heel and a range of colour and leather options. The style takes the iconic men’s loafer
detailing for a completely new Mulberry shoe, with traditional front plaque accent.
Finally, Max the dog walks for Mulberry once again, debuting both a cosy check and butterfly
print-blocked coat to match his accompanying model.

On the 13th April 2013, Lacoste invited guests to join them for a Garden Party to celebrate their 80th anniversary.

The Garden Party took place at Block 338 Restaurant & Lounge, in the garden courtyard. Among the guests were VIP customers, JC tennis academy members, and key print and on-line publications.

During the event, guests mingled in the garden and enjoyed cool cocktails and canapés during sunset. As darkness fell, the resident Jazz band at Block 338 performed classic melodies.

To celebrate Lacoste’s 80th Anniversary, the 80th guest to enter the event received a gift worth BD 100 from Lacoste Bahrain. In addition, a raffle draw took place for a grand prize of BD 100 voucher to be redeemed in any of the Lacoste outlets in Bahrain.

As guests left they were presented with a variety of Lacoste 80th birthday gifts.

I enjoyed planning each and every part of this occasion/event. It was hectic turning the venue to full branded by Lacoste however it turned out to be really nice! Paid attention to small details like having croco gummies, branded mini cupcakes, croco lollies and branded cushions which added that extra touch to the event. It is certainly an accomplishment..

Lacoste event –> CHECK! Will keep you posted on the next event planned! Keep reading…

I cant believe its already been four year since me and my friend Noora launched PLT back in 2009. We were inspired by the TV show Gossip Girl back then and Blaire’s beautiful bow headbands (we are TOTALLY over that phase). We decided to start doing them at home – this just started as a hobby but then with the encouragement of family and friends and their support it started to expand into a business. We expanded to different kind of accessories and jewlery and participated in many many exhibitions and charity events. Four years later- HERE WE ARE- bringing the headbands back!

‘Pretty Little Things’ just launched their SS13 floral collection in celebration of the brands 4th anniversary at one of Bahrain’s most famous monuments – Bab Al Bahrain. The launch took place at Bab Market at Bab Al Bahrain – an event organized by Ministry of Culture in Bahrain which is also part of “Spring of Culture” initiative. The floral collection consists of a selection of handpicked artificial flowers and put together into a beautiful headband which is hand made by the designer herself. The collection is inspired by the artists Frida Kahlo and Lana Del Ray- two iconic artists in history and in our modern world which has a very similar style of the SS13 collection.

Pretty Little Ad- BCC summer campaign

Woke up this morning with this in my inbox..

So excited about this Summer campaign by Bahrain City Centre. Not only because its SALE SEASON, but also  because the beautiful model in the advertisement is accessorized by our brand Pretty Little Things, wearing a hand made double statement necklace. The mix and match of the statement necklaces is so pretty and is a great addition to her colorful summery outfit.

She’s wearing a Fuschia multi-sized beads in addition to the multi-colored stones statement necklace. They’re both available at Pretty Little Things corner in PINK Boutique in Al Aali Mall.

 The ad is all over the newspapers, internet, and outdoor media in addition to the in-mall banners and drop downs. Notice it the next time you pass by and remember us 🙂

Peace, love & high-fives,

NT
