Whether it is silvery hues at Whistles or hard and structured metallics at McQ, Sports Luxe is still trending for Spring 15. The London catwalks were a wash with this lustrous colour and we couldn't be more excited as we are just about to launch our Lottie Tote, in Crackled Silver!
Spaghetti-strap shift dress in iridescent organza and draping duster coats in jersey and silvery crepe combinations, Thomas Lyte loves this more feminine direction that Richard Nicoll’s has taken.
While Nicolls moves away from his signature androgynous style, Whistle’s cements their image as the go-to working women’s brand. By situating their catwalk at the entrance to King’s Cross tube station, they put the model into the context of their customer: a women who effortlessly mixes style with practicality just like the way they mixed silver hues with classic shapes.
While we like to see the softer side of silver, we just can’t ignore our love of it’s harder, more Sport Luxe edge, as shown by the structured oversized jackets and miniskirts of McQ’s new collection. Simply add a silvery accent with our Cracked Silver Lottie Tote, available online very soon!
London Fashion Week is around the corner. The elegant, the eccentric, and the fashion-forward are slowly making their way to the capital, and London is more than ready to embrace them.
However, during this joyous time of fashion shows, exclusive parties and celebrity encrusted events, one question lingers on every attendee’s lips. What. Do. I. Wear?
But, do not fear. May we introduce the Olivia.
Stylish, contemporary, and finished with traditional British craftwork, this exquisitely made bag is not only versatile, but a must have for this season, sure to make any outfit suitably on trend.
The Thomas Lyte team have also created a selection of Black and Mustard must haves (I know, we do spoil you), so make sure your Olivia is fully stocked with these beautiful sought after accessories, and and have a very happy fashion week!
Last Friday, ambassadors of the luxury industry, from all over the world, descended upon the iconic Langham Hotel for the 2014 Luxury Lifestyle Awards.
The TL men were looking debonair in their tuxedos and the ladies were armed with their Caro Clutches, as they joined a star-studded crowd of some of the biggest names in luxury.
Having mingled over cocktails and gold champagne, we indulged in a delectable three course meal and enjoyed an array of Casino Royale entertainment. This was simply the warm up, as the main event was still to follow!
Acknowledging the achievements of luxury leaders in the industry, from boutique hotels and restaurants to jewellery and designer brands, the Luxury Lifestyle Awards are a prestigious event in the luxury calendar.
With our gracious loosing faces rehearsed and our winner’s speeches (you know, just in case!), we waited with anticipation for the winner of the UK National Brand to be revealed.
Up against the likes of Elemis and House of Hackney, Thomas Lyte is delighted to have won this prestigious award, which will stand proudly in our Burlington Arcade store.
Congratulations to all the nominees and winners of the 2014 awards. We look forward to seeing you next year!
Lights, Camera… Strike a pose.
The Thomas Lyte office goes into overdrive as we prepare for our next photo shoot. From sourcing the set and props to ensuring the samples are looking their best, a photo shoot is never an easy feat.
However, the makeup has been removed, the lights have been dismantled and the new collection is back in its dust bags. After 3 exhausting days, the Thomas Lyte team have finally called it a wrap!
With the launch of our new products, there are some very exciting things coming your way. So, if you haven’t already, follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, because you don’t want to miss what we have in store for you.
