Red or...Dead

Red or Dead is one of those british brands who have a strong history, but seem to have been forgotten in today's fashion world. Back at the beginning of the noughties Red or Dead was very much on my fashion radar and everyone elses for that matter, I was completely obsessed with their rainbow slingbacks.

The brand recently produced a retrospective exhibition just of Brick Lane; which I happened to walk past. I went a bit crazy and took all of the photographs below so its almost like you were there:

My Top Three

On a recent trip to New York for work, I went on a mission to find a new Marc by Marc Jacobs bag. I already have two, and I guess I am one of those people who when they find something that works I stick with it. The price point of the bag is a substantial amount, but not enough to bankcrupt and the quality is equal to that of a Mulberry or Fendi. I quickly feel in love with the Maverick Blizzard bag, which is perfect for everyday wear and has a slight edge to it! The matt silver hardware was a major tick as well. The bag is now being readied to go under the Xmas tree!!!

Now to my wish list, this grafitti style War and Peace elephant t-shirt is amazing. I love the casual nature of the long sleeved t-shirt come dress. It would be perfect with a pair of tights or leggings and some gigantic wedge heels. I shall start saving my pennies now...
Finally these leopard print horse hair hi tops from Topshop are 'E-P-I-C', complete with a metallic foot strap and studded toe these shoes border on trashy but definitely a necessary purchase. Five days until pay day...

FL Loves KTZ

I love finding new interesting designers; my latest discovery is KTZ. The label was founded by design trio Koji Maruyama, Sasko Bezovski and Marjan Pejoski. The brand is based in the UK and they are now in their sixth season of showing at London Fashion Week. It's difficult to describe their clothing it's somewhere between high fashion and street wear.

There current collection for AW12 errs more towards the street wear, with similarities to Boy London with its white on black iconography. See pictures below:

My favourite piece is this hooded dress that costs £175. Both comfortable and fashionable the ultimate winter dress. All you need is a belt to cinch the waist in and it would be perfect.

Check out their Spring/Summer 2013 collection in the video below:

The clothing is available to buy at their Kokon To Kai shops in Soho and West London or Opening Ceromony as well as online.
