Friend or Faux AW14 collection.



Established in 2011, Friend or Faux is a London based graphic orientated young menswear brand stocked in some of the most prestigious retailers across the UK and beyond.

 A design collective, a tributary of talent, Friend or Faux brings you fashion ideals and concepts with cutting edge creativity and confident originality. Life without the pressure of reality, clever and curious, and ready for our world. Our vision is global, our criteria is universal.

The AW14 collection “Raising Hell” is a head banging nod towards late night revelry and debauchery, fonts inspired by classic 80’s heavy metal tour tees executed with print techniques including sublimations, pixilation, faux dip dyes, signed off with branding vehicles cleverly cut out within all over prints. 

Shapes include ¾ sleeve raglan tees and a sweat package for those autumnal nights and fabric bases include our ever-popular space dyes. The range has quite simply been “designed, crafted and engineered with pride”. 

Friend or Faux has one mantra, “don’t be fake, befriend!

Alexandra Harper Millinery releases second Disney collection




Following on from the success of the ‘Maleficent'-inspired collection, milliner to the stars, Alexandra Harper Millinery has created a striking new micro range inspired by the mischievous Disney character, Tinker Bell. Entering into Disney’s world of fantasy, imagination and escapism, Harper has designed five one-off creations that encapsulate the minute and globally renowned Disney icon.

Tinker Bell is a notorious Disney personality with her own unique and quirky style. Since 1953, she has been recognised for her temperamental and sparky disposition and Harper has perfectly captured Tinker Bell’s essence in this latest collection. Iridescent hand-cut ‘wings’ shimmer from a classic velvet crown. Another headpiece sees Tinker Bell herself sat atop clouds of black veiling and pleated crinoline sprinkled with gold leaf. Sneaking into the garden, another silhouette of Tinker Bell can be found on a cream dupion silk headpiece with cream jinsin loops, hand-tooled silk flowers and faux blossoms in pinks, greens, creams and purples. A magical mini pillbox in light gold is adorned with tulle and tufts of veiling with a hand-beaded star in a palette of golds.

The ongoing partnership with Disney is an ideal match. Alexandra Harper has used her expertise and contemporary techniques to create an enchanting range. Bridget Robertson, senior commercial manager - fashion accessories and home at The Walt Disney Company UK comments that Disney is, "delighted to be working with Alexandra Harper Millinery to bring the Disney fairytales to life through her incredible hats."

"Working with Disney is an amazing opportunity,” explains Harper. “I’ve always been drawn to hats and to the fantasticalness of Disney. To be able to combine the two is pure magic."  

Alexandra’s first capsule collection for Disney was a collection inspired by ‘Maleficent,’ starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning. Alexandra will be producing several collections for Disney over the next two years.
