Hello Loves,

In the past week I was tasked in my Art Direction for Fashion Class at CSM London to find a SS15 fashion trend that I personally find very strong and that will most likely make it to High Street. A big thanks to my wonderful teacher Schelay @fashiontent – I am loving your class!

{SS15 Trend: Modern Romantics – 3D Translucency}

I screened my favorite magazines Elle, Vogue, Bazaar for trend overview as well as the Vogue’s Latest Trends 2015 featured from the hottest spring summer catwalk shows. I looked for something that caught my eye immediately and checked if it repeated in diverse fashion shows. What I found and fell in love with is translucent materials mixed with draped shapes that look as if they were 3D printed – so charming and beautiful. Here is my trend chart – 3D Translucency:

Corinna’s Top Trend Spring Summer 2015

{Concealing and Revealing}

In various fashion shows ranging from Balenciaga, Michael Kors, Akris, Galliano and Erdem, translucent materials with three dimensional shapes added as another layer were shown.

The play between concealing and revealing skin and figure is key element of this trend that makes it very appealing to both, the person wearing and the one observing the outfit.

Michael Kors SS15

{Fragile and Powerful}

The translucent aspect of this outfit composes a well-rounded softness that adds just enough sensuality to express femininity.

{Architectural with a 3D Printed Feel}

The sculptural almost architectural feel of the design creates a more rigid image of clothing. Strong structures seem to be almost as fragile and inflexible as if 3D printed.

{New Patterns Sugarcoating The Figure}

This trend is very powerful as it beautifully outlines the strong and sensitive world of a modern woman. She is very much in control of exposure of her beneficial aspects not allowing the viewer to see it all. Through the loose pattern over translucent fabric details don’t show – It is so beneficial wearing it for a long skirt.

{Outstanding with Sensuality}

The modern woman carefully expresses her sensual appeal through clothing revealing what is hers in a controlled and impactful way where she stands out as the object of desire.

I think this will be a great trend this spring and summer and I am already looking forward to be finding translucent and 3-dimensional shaped items in stores soon. So, stop sales shopping now and safe up for the next season’s trends – They will make you look amazing!

So much for a Sunday night. Hope you like my selection and analysis! Let me know if you want to see more of it.

Hello Loves,

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends gifting and receiving love and nice things. Right after Christmas and around New Year’s is the best time of the year when to find great markdowns at your favorite stores. If you have some savings left out of your Christmas bank or maybe received money gifts from your family, I know a place where to spend it splendidly. All my selected items I find great for the office and also for off-duty, except for the hat, of course :).

Here is what I am totally loving at Tory Burch Winter Sales:

Have a good day,

“Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars, place your head on my beating heart…” – Music always gets to me like this; I am such a sucker for lyrics!!!!

This song is one of those beautiful ones just like Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” – they get to me right under my skin and make my tears pop. Love is a beautiful thing.

 

For everyone who is missing someone on a Thursday night – turn up and think out loud.

Just because it is Monday and I like to plug in and blend away the week’s workload.

“Let’s go down to the tennis court and talk it out like Yeah!”…and yeah…listen to the first line of the song – definitely worth it playing over and over again! “Don’t you think…”?!

Hello Everybody!

Let’s say you live a true corporate life, then most of your friends are friends from work. They aren’t necessarily co-workers but somehow related to your office ecosystem. So speaking my colleague asked me today what I was thinking of one costume she found online….a large human size PE***IS! Obviously she was joking, but hey, there are many costumes out there with similar style.
Just consider, even when going to a private Halloween party, there will be most likely office people around. This meaning you should think twice when choosing this year’s Halloween costume as it might shape your business image forever! LOL

Today At The Headquarters

Currently looping on my ears: Le Youth with “Cool“. Whether it is a presentation I have to finish or when being on my way back home after a long working day…this is the sound right now. First you need to get used to it but once you are into it you are hooked for sure.

Enjoy!

Hello Everybody,

Designer labels are great – don’t we just love high fashion and either wear or want to wear those couture pieces from big labels right from #fashionweek….jap jap, that’s what I want. But as big label shopping isn’t always what we are seeking for in equipping our business attire, I love shopping at Zara and else.

However, recently I merge into more conversations of ethical sourcing, sustainable materials and green process and where to actually find it besides the H&M conscious collection.

I started researching and tabbed into young designer labels that are unique and affordable – something special I can L.O.V.E. knowing that behind the scenes there are people who put lots of passion, thoughts and skills into a specific product for me to fall in love with. Ordering from them almost feels as if they hand sewed it just for you, delivered with a personal note. Ahhhhh I find this so nice.

Young Designer Label RIYKA

Looking for young designer labels with quality, ethical values and love to their products, I came across RIYKA.

RIYKA is London based producing timeless British style with a historic yet modern twist. They use vibrant contrasting colors and geometrical patterns inspired by our modern fresh and lively culture. Find them on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest to follow some cool stuff.

I really like how they play with geometric lines. Their clothing is showcased as sporty on their website but I think the shapes are also great to be dressed up with accessories and heels.

The Betty Dress

“The Betty Dress is a slightly shorter version of our classic midi length, an A-line cut with a sweet peter pan collar, full length & tapered sleeves, with contrast geometric paneling on front and back of dress, made out of 100% navy cotton drill with a slight sheen to it in contrast to a mat green cotton on the geometric detail.“

Unfortunately this particular dress is sold out. As they only produce a limited amount of their clothing it says no mass production, which I really appreciate. Maybe you can ask them if they will make more. I think their dresses are pretty awesome and might also evolve into timeless pieces as their design playfully reaches out into diverse epochs.

Today At The Headquarters

 

I fell in love with this dress immediately. It is the essence of modern elegance during daytime paired with enough cuteness. It is slightly shorter than the classic midi-length and cut in an A-line shape. This dress was strongly inspired by the great beauties of the sixties and its cute naïve style of that era. I really like this style on my figure. The peter-pan collar adds so much cuteness into the architectural lines. I also really like the contrast geometric panels on front and back of the dress. The fabric used is cotton with a slight sheen to it – downside to cotton always is the wrinkling of material.

Strong geometric lines speak out the RIYKA’s signature. I really like their style mix and the fact that I can easily elevate this dress from casual to chic – business and off duty.

This dress is fun, easy and striking.

@riykalondon, I’d love to see more Betty dresses on your site.

 

Follow along and Enjoy!

Hello Everybody!

Today at the headquarters I’d like to share a wonderful innovation with you. A ring that will transform your social life into quality time – worry free of missing out on anything that is important to you.

Today At The Headquarters

 

Let’s face it. We all do it. We check our phones all the time – when getting up, at work, at lunch, at dinner, in bed…just always. We live hybrid online-offline lives and enjoy it. Being offline just isn’t okay for us at all but we also enjoy one on one face time with our loved ones. Also on the job some people might not appreciate you checking your personal messages constantly. So far so good. But what are we going to do with this?

Today At The Headquarters

 

I want to introduce to you Ringly. The smartest and most beautiful way of staying online while being there in the the real world facing real people and real stuff. So, let’s say you are going out for dinner, you could build a phone tower with your friends jointly resisting the digital urge. Or you could wear a fancy statement ring that is designed to look beautiful and holds the technology that will discreetly notify you whenever you get a phone call, a text, an email or a tweet you care about. You could then reach out for your phone only when you really need to.

 

Today At The Headquarters

 

After reading about Ringly I directly ordered one for myself which I will get around October. As this is an entirely new product, you can pre-order until September 1st for a special price with this link.

Today At The Headquarters

 

 

I will write a review about the ring once I will have it in my hands and will let you know how I make use of it. Thank you, Ringly, for designing such a great product. I am already very excited about it and cannot wait until I get it.

Enjoy Beauty!

Hello Everybody,

Have you ever been interviewed for a YouTube video? Guess what, I have not until a couple of days ago. Imagine how nervous I was when I got spontaneously interviewed on TATH.me at the DLD women’s conference. #firsttime #neverforget :) Aaaaand here it is – in German – Enjoy!

A big thanks to you, Jeanny, for interviewing me and putting me out there.

 

Today At The Headquarters

I checked on some of my friends who work in PR, thanks Anto!, and got some really easy tricks on how to do better. See my review video below

 

5 TRICKS TO MASTER A SPONTANEOUS VIDEO INTERVIEW

 

 

1// UPRIGHT POSTURE

I had the situation that the interviewer was on her knees under me and I looked down to her and also bend down my shoulders. It is much better if you sit or stay really straight and pull your shoulders back.

 

2// SAY YOUR BRAND NAME

Right in the beginning say your company or product name. I missed saying where you find me right away, e.g. “I have a blog called Today At The Headquarters. On TATH.me or todayattheheadquarters.com I document business outfits.”

 

3// MAKE A POINT

Short sentences are key. Package one statement or thought in short sentences. Pause when done and wait for the next question. It is easier for the postproduction to cut the interview in a nice way and will make you look you know what you are talking about.

 

4// MISTAKE? – START OVER

If you express yourself in a wrong way – stop – and start over again. The video will be edited anyway and they can cut this part out easily. Obviously this only applies when it’s not a live interview.

 

5// TRUST YOUR INTERVIEWER

Your interviewer will help you understand what to do. I was told not to look in the camera and instead focus on her.

 

…and jap, I think it is common sense to always be friendly – especially when being interviewed. Also make sure to ask the interviewer before or after the interview: What the video is used for and where you can find it to spread the word about it. And the rest will be practice, I guess.

I hope this was interesting or useful for you. Let me know your tips and tricks.

Find me on Facebook under TATH and follow me there.

Thank you DLD for getting me out of my comfort zone and enabling me to explore new things! If you also like to push the envelope of content and connections head on over to their website dld-conference.com

 

XOXO,

Corinna
