Let this Season's Trends Inspire Your Style

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Seasonal trends aren’t just for your home they affect all aspects of our lives and are often more connected than you thought. Even if you believe that you’re not influenced by current styles or trends they will have crept into your life without you evening noticing. There is a great scene in “The Devil Wears Prada” when the naive intern (Anne Hathaway) sniggers at two belts that look the same only to be snarled at by the notoriously fierce fashion editor, played by Meryl Streep, who then goes on to eloquently and calming educate her on her own choices of fashion. The devastating monologue suggests that what you wear is actually a direct result of the decisions made by high-fashion designers and editors and this is probably true for most industries. Ideas and styles are always copied and imitated as certain designs and colours become more popular than others, this then influences other designers and trends are made. Our picks of this seasons collections run through every aspect of your life including your home, fashion, beauty and technology. You will see how they are interlinked and that Eat Sleep Live’s newest collection might well be a big part of this seasons latest trends. Home Obviously each season we see strong trends that are apparently set to take over our home but unless you have a never ending money pot sometimes these crazes are out of reach for us normal folk! We would all love to have a statement bathtub or personal library but instead we are focusing on the home trends that are a little more accessible. Neutrals, contrast, distinct are all words that are being used in the interiors world this autumn. At Eat Sleep Live we use a perfect word to describe our new Prestige Collection and that word is, juxtaposition. Seamlessly our pieces fall in line with the aforementioned words, neutral, contrast and distinct combing them all to make them warrant their juxtaposed description. For example the new Prestige dining table includes Limed Grey and Natural wood finishes, the contrast between wood and brushed stainless steel is clear to see and the modern design of the overhang butterfly effect top is stunningly distinctive.

'Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.' This quote translates beautifully between home and fashion and is something that I always follow myself, you must love everything that you buy whether you’re going to wear it or live in it. To relate once more to our home trends this season Mulberry are fascinated by old English houses and how they lived through the decades. At Eat Sleep Live we can appreciate their need to change and evolve through the times and fashions with our new collections whilst still using our reclaimed wood. For their Autumn/Winter Catwalk Collection Mulberry have stepped into the world of Georgian interiors, as fashion inspires your home interiors also inspire fashion with their elegance, lightness and stylised flair.

Estee Lauder have embarked into a new young fresh style of makeup reinventing themselves for the younger market this autumn. You may have noticed that their new cover girl is a member of the famous Kardashian family, Kendall Jenner, proving that their latest “New Dimension” is certainly that. Their new products feature words like, perfection, pure and their new fragrance is called Modern Muse. Once again we see that beauty brands, much like Eat Sleep Live, are adding a modern twist to their creations.

In fact there seems to be something new “trending” every day, however once or twice a year the big named brands still reveal their latest collections which obviously immediately start trending. On the 9 September, I was one of those people eagerly transfixed to watch the release of Apple’s newest collection.  The new iPod Pro, Apple TV, iPhone 6S which sent the tech world into a frenzy. As leaders in the their industry their launch is far different to beauty and fashion, style and trends become less about taste and more about science and intelligence that’s more about how we live rather than how we look.  We are always seeking ways to innovate at Eat Sleep Live whilst staying true to our heritage, because we want our products to last a life time not a season.

Your next home, fashion, beauty or tech buys might just surprise you.
