How to Style: The Nu Blvck Handbag

A few weeks back I had the opportunity to collaborate with some of my favourite Scottish fashion industry practitioners: Rebecca Flory and Andrew Vincent (founders of womenswear accessories brand Nu Blvck), Kirsty Halliday (renowned stylist part of of I’ll Be Your Mirror), Hannah Louise Baxter (fashion designer at her eponymous label) and talented photographer Holly May Wesley. Scroll on to see the results of our ”Ways to Style” photoshoot featuring two of my picks from their latest collection: The Grab Bag and The Knot Bag. I styled these handmade, locally produced lustworthy handbags with a classic Burberry-style trench coat, cosy woolen scarf, chic leather gloves, and of course freshly dyed silver-blue hair by the wonderful Austen Thomson.

Cross Cashmere

Since publishing a book about the rich heritage of cashmere in Scotland, after years of working for a Scottish mill, journalist (and total #girlboss) Lynne McCrossan decided to practise what she preached, and create a capsule collection of the highest quality Scottish cashmere. The collection consists of 6 essential and versatile styles in beautiful knitwear, made for man and woman alike. Here are the shots from an editorial for Cross Cashmere with myself and Paul Keenan (of mens fashion and lifestyle blog thekeenanone.com) modelling for fashion photographer Julie Howden. Let me know what you think, and look out for Cross Cashmere featuring in an upcoming episode of Iluminate for BBC The Social.  (more…)

Outfit styling with Mandi Candi Boutique

 
Mandi Candi is a Dundee-Based boutique providing a huge range of trend-led collections by various independent fashion designers. After discovering Mandi Candi Boutique on Instagram (check out their stylish feed here!) I was keen to collaborate, so together with  creative mastermind Daina Renton (@dainarenton) I styled up some outfits and ventured to the Morningside Wild West, a strange little derelict avenue near my flat where the buildings all resemble an American cowboy town, and shot the three looks, featuring a black pinafore jumpsuit, a suede mini shift dress, black and silver heeled boots and a gorgeous embroidered biker jacket.
