Although Spring/Summer 2016 seems so far away, for the fashion industry, preparation for next year’s magazines, photo shoots and blog posts are well underway. Our wonderful press team held an event in their London showroom to present our brand new styles, which was an absolute success!
The event took place on 18th November at the B Teams Head Office, welcoming more than 200 guests throughout the day. Set designer Yasmin Kurunis transformed the showroom into a chic inspired Moroccan haven, with cascading plants and pops of bright orange and blue.
Gails Artisan bakery catered the event with beautiful bowls of fresh fruits, granola and yogurts and smoothies followed by beautiful lunchtime salads, gourmet sandwiches and sweet afternoon treats. The B Team also made delicious double chocolate brownies. Nail Berry manicures were offered to all guests along with Sienna fake tan contour and sculpting demonstrations.
Apart from the delicious food there were also some very exciting new shoes on display! For SS16, we’ve got LOTS of new styles to show you! We don’t want to give the game away but we’ve got the hottest new styles landing next season… think bright leathers, metallic and brand new silhouettes!
Keep your eyes peeled for the latest new footwear trends for women, men and kids!
This week saw the seventh London Collections Men take place over four days at various locations across the city, showcasing the best Britain has to offer in menswear. Between the catwalk shows, presentations, showrooms, extravagant parties and the streetwear seen around each venue, it was something for Britain and the fashion world to be truly proud of and something we were constantly inspired by.
London Collections Men is produced by the British Fashion Council and is the menswear alternative to London Fashion Week, although feels more raw and edgy. To quote the British Fashion Council “London Collections Men emphasises both the creative and commercial importance of British brands and emerging talent as well as the rich cultural landscape that contributes to the inspiration and success of this sector.” With shows ranging from the most innovative up-and-coming young designers, to the global powerhouse brands, from the most eccentric and out-there outfits to more wearable pieces, it wasn’t to be missed.
With London being at the forefront of the fashion world, always pushing forward and offering young fashion creatives first class education and funding opportunities, it’s no wonder New York has decided to take our lead and will be running their own dedicated men’s fashion week next month.

With two existing designs, a new design for SS15 dropping next week and an exclusive design for Office shoes available in-store and online, our men’s collection is growing and our SS16 update is already being worked on between our London designers and traditional factory in Menorca.
