Kildare Village - Globalista

20 June 2013
Hey guys,
Just wanted to share the latest video from Kildare Village Outlet, it has such a summer vibe and is definitely going to provide some outfit inspiration for those rare sunny days. This video is part of their latest Globalista campaign, which is all about those who have a love for value retail, fashion and travel (who doesn’t?). The video also stars the beautiful  Milla Jovovich and art director Julia Restoin- Roitfeld, both looking incredibly glam as they go about their fun filled day of Chic Outlet shopping . I would seriously love to live out a day in those ladies’ shoes!
I particularly love how both women managed to work a bold aqua colour into their outfits, whilst still maintaining a more minimal silhouette. This is just a small taster of the wide selection of clothing on offer at Kildare Village Outlet, I must admit I’m eager to see what other pieces they have in stock. I can’t decide if I love the embellished cropped jacket or sleek white blazer more, someone help me decide? Knowing me I’d probably pick up both jackets, I can’t resist a good bargain. Kildare Village is all about providing fashionable items at reasonable prices, and also ensuring that customers have a luxurious shopping experience.
I’m planning a trip this summer for sure, I’ve just graduated with my honours degree so it’s the perfect excuse for me to pick up some more ‘grown up’ pieces.
Check out the video, I’d love to hear your thoughts on whose outfit you preferred. Have you ever shopped in Kildare Village before? What are your thoughts on this more glamorous approach to outlet shopping?

The Return of the 90s Shoe

10 June 2013
We’ve all seen it creeping in slowly at the seams of fashion; the 90s. Now, it would seem, the decade is exploding onto our catwalks and high streets. We can see the trend in everything from scrunchies to crop tops, from jeans to sportswear, but the area of fashion it has disrupted the most has to be... shoes. People’s feet everywhere are clad with chunky soles, with jelly and with trainers; it’s 90s galore down there at we here at Luxe Models love it.  So we’re here to take a look at what exactly is so 90s about our footwear this summer...

Doc Martens
It started out as just a hipster thing (as all the great trends do), but now it’s official: DMs are back, and they’re badder than ever. Owning a pair of DMs is an investment; if you actually owned a pair in the 90s, I’m sure as anything that they’re still good to go some twenty years later! They’re quality clompers and they go with just about anything. We saw a revival of 90s grunge and punk on ss13 catwalks, so don’t be afraid do wear a pair of Doc Martens with little black dress; it works this season. And you don’t just have to go for boots; there are some super cool DM shoes kicking around too; we particularly love their spike-studded variety!

Yes, you heard right. And by Kickers we mean the school-yard throw backs that formed a big part of so many of our childhoods! If you go into any Topshop right now, you’ll find their shoe section littered with big chunky rubber and epic soles that eco our favourite school footwear to a T. What’s more, Kickers themselves has paired up with Lazy Oaf (the impossibly quirky and lovable London based brand) to produce five shoe designs that would put a Spice Girl to shame; they’re that 90s. Luxe Models fondly remembers donning a pair Kickers with our summer dresses, and we’re pretty sure they can be worn the same way today.

Jelly Shoes
Is it just us, or are jelly shoes amazing? We’re wondering why on earth they ever went away. Again, Topshop is doing what it says on the tin and acting as the top shop in which to pick up quirky trends like this one. They have a range of cheap to expensive jelly shoes, all of which look retro-chic with bikinis, shorts and crop tops.

Ah the memories! Asides from making 90s children feel old, we feel this comeback is the best one yet.
