Of course, the number 1 reason why we should go to London Fashion Week is because it is London Fashion Week. As much as we like to shrug off how in a matter of weeks, there will be all influencers, buyers and designers styling up one of the fashion cities in the world, we know deep down we want to be there…
Worldwide fashion designers such as Maison Margiela, House of Holland and Mulberry will be showcasing their newest collections to all of us fashion divas and inspirationals. But as much as we crave to get even a seat at the back behind the tall guy, LFW will be letting local designers showcase their collections as well. Being mentioned as ‘stars’ and ‘commercially ready’, I can’t wait as much as you to see the competition the catwalks will grace us this year. A few of the 10 local designers will include Andrew McAllister, Emma Kirwan and Emma Curtis.
Think we are all in the same boat, when we get the golden ticket to the worldwide known fashion event and stress ourselves out over what to wear. WHAT DO WE WEAR?! With bloggers, celebrities and influencers getting papped outside as they are the face of future trends, we need to make sure we are ahead of ourselves and in front of the line with street style. Do we go with our instincts and put on our favourite jazzy pants? Or do we look at predicted Spring 18 trends? Let's go with question 2! Spring trends at the moment are definitely making 2018 a great one already. With the likes of lavender, ice cream hues, saturated block colours and designers being influenced by art such as Picasso and Andy Warhol, we have a wide selection that will prepare us for being papped. Just maybe don’t add the oversized shades…
Have I made you want to attend the event even more? Thought I might… Check out our latest article on what designers will be showcasing their collections, so you can secretly pick your favorites.
Christmas is evolving, and while the thought of getting the decorations up in November might seem strange to some, it is all part of tradition for others. It’s probably true that Christmas is becoming much more westernised and such things that we would never have thought about doing here in the UK 20 years ago, have now travelled over the water and have been picked up by some of us Brits.
Nothing beats getting in the festive season (sorry grinches) but if you are a Christmas lover, you can’t beat getting the decorations out, putting them old Christmas songs on full blast and singing your heart out all the while, making your house look like the next grotto.
Whether your style is chic, vintage or simple, there is so many decorations to choose from so here at HUMBE, knowing full well how difficult it is to try and buy every decoration you see, we have put together The Best Christmas Decorations For Your Home. Check them out below.

The new high street collection - Erdem X H&M
Waiting for what H&M pulls out of the bag in terms of their collaborations, always seems like a decade too long. From the show studded past collaborators, it has to be said this was one of the most anticipated ones yet. London based designer Erdem Moralioglu teamed up with H&M and looking at their collection together, it was one that was easily wearable for all trendsetters and style influencers.
Erdem has a flare, that not many designers can carry off. His inspiration comes from what he sees and invisions with his own memories, designed signatures and what all city folks secretly love… The countryside. Erdem said “It is very personal. The collection reinterprets some of the codes that have defined my work over the past decade, and it’s also inspired by film, music… things i loved growing up”.
What can we expect from this collection? If you haven’t already been refreshing the H&M homepage since it came out, then most likely your new favorite designers collection will be one you will get green eyed over. Coming out on 2nd November, it is now available both online and in 220 worldwide stores. So it is about time you get hunting for that tea party tweed set. The sharp tailoring throughout the pieces screams silhouette, whilst the feminine florals are an interpretation of his catwalk collections saying how he has always been fascinated by femininity “I’ve always been fascinated by the language of femininity, whether it’s lace or flowers or aesthetics of beauty” says Erdem.
For H&M, Erdem went into designing a wardrobe that was versatile for the woman and man (yes, for the first time ever, a collection for men). Think romantic meets modern. As much as I would love to buy multiples of each piece in the collection, I have to put the selfishness aside and remember others have to shop as well. For matter of a fact, ERDEM x H&M purchases are limited to a maximum of one of each item per person. This applies to all items in the collection including accessories, shoes and bags.
Happy shopping and et's hope your bank balance agrees with your style. We can blame it on Erdem. It isn’t our fault we like to look pretty.

Rihanna's Fenty x PUMA AW17 Runway
It’s a not a surprise that the Rihanna Fenty x Puma AW17 collection took the crowd by storm. Rihanna in her own words wanted to create a "Marie Antoinette at the gym" look for Paris Fashion Week.
The show was held in the magnificent Paris National library and we instantly, thought of preppy/sporty American high school fashion, but with Rihanna’s and Puma’s badass version of it.
Singer turned fashion and beauty icon has been raising the bar for designers and brands for quite a while now. This anticipated collaboration made us fall back in love with the cult sportswear classic, Puma.
Classic pieces like tartan fabrics and wellington boots were paired with American style shirts, puffer jackets, and the classic Puma logo. Makeup was just as important as the pieces, warm-toned eyeshadow and cool toned lips was used to revamp the fall trend.
Each model was seen on the catwalk holding an item in relation to the theme, some held teddy bear backpacks, books, and skateboards adding that cute geek chic. Alongside traditional tartan motifs, we saw bursts of loud primary yellow and orange colours, resembling familiar basketball shirts, worn by the Lakers.
Sport’s wear has come a long way since the 70’s where it was first popularised. Rihanna x Puma reinvents this style by bringing together old school looks, reviving it with a fresh 2017 style.
