Six London

Six international bloggers

Six shoe designs

And a new step into the blogging world. We love their style, hype their looks and now wear their designs.

 

Foreign Language ft. Jess

Not only is it a brilliant song featuring Jess Higgs, the video is the reason I am posting.

With the new James Bond coming to our screens, as well as a new Batman film (action/heroes/villains…vaguely fits in there somewhere), this video is very fitting. The 70’s era is constantly on the catwalk and the denim market are seeing a rapid increase of 70’s style flared jeans being sold.

Possible marketing inspiration…

Fashion houses are the latest to be hit with scandal about not paying their intern enough. HMRC have been writing to a number of designer labels that exhibited at London Fashion Week in September 2011, warning them about non-payment of the National Minimum Wage.

“These letters give fashion houses plenty of warning that they are under scrutiny. If they are not playing by the rules, now is the time to put things right. Non-payment of the national minimum wage is not an option.

“Our message is clear: don’t wait for us to come knocking on your door; put things right now and avoid a penalty and possible prosecution.”

Michelle Wyer, HMRC’s assistant director for National Minimum Wage

Flashback: Tommy Hilfiger remembers his first shops – Telegraph.

We are all well aware of economy crisis at the moment, it has hit most of our pockets hard and it has now hit Sir Philip Green’s. Arcadia reported a 38% fall in annual profits leading to the decision of closing down 260 UK stores. This will happen over the space of 3 years.

“We have got, from my memory, 450-460 stores where leases expire in the next three years, and I think in our latest summary we will close more than half of those. So I would say I’d expect to close 250-260. I’d say there may be other opportunities that turn up, but in terms of our existing portfolio, that’s what I’m thinking.” Sir Philip Green.

Arcadia’s stores:

  • Top Shop
  • Top Man
  • Miss Selfridge
  • BhS
  • Dorothy Perkins
  • Wallis
  • Burtons
  • Evans
  • Outfit

Definitely appropriate.
