The weather in London has been a dream recently, and the TwentyFour team are lapping up every minute, rumour has it that the sunshine is here to stay for a few weeks too which will be incredible. Since our last blog post the team have been working hard on some new designs and finally we are ready to share them with you.
Last week we had a photo shoot, and as always it is amazing to see the pieces brought to life. Photoshoots are also helpful to gauge what works styling wise with new designs. We opted for some contemporary glamour in our styling on this shoot.
By maintaining the same design ethos as we have done in our past designs. The pieces have been developed to take you flawlessly through from day to night. Some pieces are more daring than we have attempted previously, a reflection of the growing confidence and strength of our novice design team.
The first designs that I am going to share are definitely up amongst my favourites by TwentyFour. The whole outfit works so well and is an example of how our design team set out to create pieces that work together, individually or as separates. Starting from the top of the outfit, we have a semi sheer shirt with the statement black binding and statement black collar button. For me there is something so classic about a woman in a crisp blouse, however this entwines the classic and the contemporary. The structure of the collar and the statement black button adds modest aesthetic while the sheer body of the fabric creates a statement of its own.
There actually isn’t a lot to say about the skirt, it is super versatile. One of the coolest things about this piece is that it gives the illusion of a pleats, cleverly it is the pinstriped mesh layer that creates this illusion. Whilst the shape of the skirt is elegant, the fabrics and styling adds some modern texture.
Let’s talk about the trousers (pictured above and below). Style wise these are super flattering, their navy colour, the high waist band accentuates the waist line and the slim leg is lengthening. The gold back zip at the back of the trousers adds a subtle statement. Paired with a thigh length shirt and heels (see above) it looks super stylish and perfect for an evening with friends or a dinner date. For a more casual and cool vibe we paired it with on trend chunky trainers and tucked in the shirt. This is a great way to style these trousers if you have small waist and hips as it accentuated the waist. Or for a look that is more demure and sophisticated wear a thigh length shirt, over the trousers and loafers.
Over the coming month we will be developing more new designs that we can share with you in next month’s blog post. You can keep up to date with what we are doing on our Instagram and Facebook pages. Looking forward to sharing more with you soon.
