Now, in collaboration with Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, I’m looking for a new generation of rising stars, who embody the spirit and passion it takes to succeed, in whatever they put their mind to. Putting down the camera, I’ve designed a photobooth which is a new and different way of shooting for me. It's something I've always wanted to do. Through special treatments and lighting, I will capture the celebratory moments of today’s rising stars - I am really looking forward to seeing the results.”

 

Flying the flag for Great Britain at the star-studded celebration was Gwendoline Christie who said: “I am delighted to attend this evening’s Vanity Fair Party to support the launch of this exciting collaboration to find Europe’s next Rising Star. I feel very passionate about supporting the next generation of talent and it’s fantastic to see a project that shows such support for this.”

FALL/WINTER 2014 BOOMERANG WEEKEND HIDEAWAY





In the Autumn ´14 Womens- and Mens collections Boomerang have chosen to set classic

against modern influences. Well behaved cuts in rebel colours and smart

high-tech fabrics next to traditional natural fabrics.

 

The women's collection includes luxury mohair- shirts and quilted lumber jackets, sailing sweaters in merino wool, maxi cardigans in bouclé and classic white shirts. Featuring sporty crewnecks appearing on dresses, shirts and knits, and a wealth of luxury, tailored jersey garments, mixed with simple, comfortable family favourites. Inspired by the classic ski resorts of Gstaad and St: Moritz: offering a timeless sporty elegance, interpreted for the here and now!

 

On the men's side they see checked shirts in twill and wool roll-necks. The updated down parka and grey denim, finds the excitement lies in the contrast, the unexpected and tantalizing. Colours range from creamy panna cotta and smoky blue to a bold bright red and sober midnight blue.

 

The silhouette is slim-tailored, accessorised and accented with leather gloves and sweeping scarves in soft wool. But Boomerang is not just about the exterior. When they started almost 40 years ago, they understood understated fashion, creating impact through quality materials and raw materials, elaborate details and a sort of natural simplicity. As part of the same philosophy, ‘The Boomerang Effect’ was, and still remains about sustainability and the eternal cycle. ‘The Effect’ means that you can give older Boomerang garments back to their stores.

 

In return this provides discount on new garments - which then after years of use are given the chance to live on through Boomerang Vintage , or perhaps re-used in the Boomerang Home Collection.  The Boomerang Effect is genuine validation of the high quality and durability in their products.

 

Boomerang’s first UK Store is at 7 West Street, Farnham, Surrey. Tel: 01252 725200
