Christopher Ræburn is a luxury fashion label that prioritizes the three R’s – Reduced, Remade, Recycled – without compromising on style. To celebrate studio Raeburn’s striking Spring/Summer 18 collection shown this month at London Fashion Week Men’s, I looked back on his past projects and collaborations and explored the various ways that the British designer is championing sustainable fashion.

Ultimate Summer Fashion Wishlist, Show Studio Internship

Urbanity Blog x A Couple of Photos

In just a couple of days, I am moving to London for 2 months for an editorial internship at Show Studio. I am so excited to work with such an innovative and exciting company, but I’m also nervous because, its high, and, well, what the hell am I going to wear! A (poor student) girl can dream…so what better than a wishlist? Here I’ve pulled together a collection of clothes, shoes and accessories ready for a Summer in London!

N.B. If you’re thinking – wait, I though Ruth had short ice blonde hair not long curly pink hair – this is an old photo from August 2016 by Jasmin Bauer from A Couple of Photos, it was the most summery blog photo I could find! I hope you enjoy this post!

Mermaids and Metallics

Mermaid-Dress7

Metallics are just one of those trends I absolutely adore. From shiny silver ankle boots to shimmering sequin skirts, I love rocking something super reflective and eye catching on a night out. While shopping at The Centre Livingston last month, I immediately fell for this unique mermaid mini dress on the Topshop sale rail, and decided to go matchy-matchy and pair it with my metallic cross body bag from Covet Edinburgh.

Stella & Dot Summer Collection

stella and dot jewellery   Stella & Dot is a New York based accessories brand selling through their website and through freelance stylists and trunk shows. The label was founded on the idea of versatility; both with allowing women to run their own sustainable business, and in terms of the jewellery itself, which is totally multi-wear and customisable.  These beautiful bohemian earrings from the new Summer collection can be unhooked and taken apart to wear as studs, small dangly earrings or full-on fetival chic drop earrings, so you basically get 3 in 1!

Street Style on The Shore

street-style

The Shore is probably on of my favourite places in Edinburgh. Beautiful modern buildings and amazing pubs and restaurants overlook the Water of Leith and the whole place looks like a mini Amsterdam. I had a great time shooting this outfit with Lyndsey from Edinburgh lifestyle blog The Quiet Resolution This was probably the first time in 2017 I’ve worn a dress without tights because Scotland is cold as hell. Looking at my pale legs you can also see why I usually choose to cover up in black! Scroll to the bottom to shop the look, which features Mandi Candi Boutique and Stella & Dot. I hope you enjoy!
