CHARLIE MAY AW14 CAMPAIGN



YES. The campaign is finally out, as well as the new collection being online - (knitwear and coats to follow next week). I am so excited, every season I am more and more happy with the brand and the exciting direction it’s taking. I loved the opportunity to work with two models for the first time; it creates a really great dynamic within the images I think. Gotta go as super busy with the new collection on the run up to fashion month just around the corner!

Make sure you sign up to the Charlie May newsletter the hear all about the newest items added to store every day :)

BAGGY LEATHERS



YES! I have exciting news my friends, after taunting you all this week on instagram with these leather trousers from my AW14 collection, they are now available to buy! Finally hey :) We still have an insane sale going on, trying to clear out the studio so all SS14 and back prices are 70% off and more.

I am really quite obsessed with these leathers; drop crotch, padded knees and welt zip fastening with matte black hardware.. I could run away and join a biker gang right this moment.

THE CHARLIE MAY MOHAIR KNIT


Wearing: Charlie May mohair knit on Vanessa of The Haute Pursuit

The insanely beautiful Vanessa of The Haute Pursuit wearing my new season mohair knit. So happy that this small styling piece has turned into a major collection must have – from the front page of the Telegraph magazine to my first piece shot by Tommy Ton on Style.com streetstyle. The delicate fabric is composed by tiny strands of intertwined cotton, looping together with mohair trapped in between, very beautiful, I think you’ll agree.

WHITE STRIPES



As the last of my spring/summer collection is disappearing into sale, I’m happy as the weather is finally good enough to permit me to wear it all here in London. A few pieces Ive been wearing to death is the cami dress (perfectly breezy), the raw v dress (raw silk always gets me) and the croc embossed raffia bomber (need I say more?). This feature comes from a meet up with Coldlilies to shoot my favourites from their site. You can find the online curation here. So many perfectly delicate pieces, when it’s too hot to wear anything else.

FELT SLIDES



Before I left for Paris these new felt sandals from Marni fell heavily onto my radar. Hello new shoe obsession! Accompanied by these shorts from Haider Ackermann I found heavily marked down in the sale, I’m completely in love with the bizarre deign; they have an inside belt/waistband/facing that buttons up leaving the outside to droop like an oversized pair of shorts. Amazing!

Also new on my radar is this new Céline shape from Smart Buy Glasses, usually I’m all about the round or cat-eye but Céline’s new angular shapes are just too gewd. I often like buying from stores such as SBG as their selection is global and I’m a serial late night shopper on the web. So happy the weather has turned in London! Goodbye winter wardrobe for good..

MINIMAL FUSS


Featured: Telegraph Magazine, styled by Aurelia Donaldson

So insanely excited to have my AW14 mohair top featured on the cover of the Telegraph magazine a couple of weeks back. My first ever cover and hopefully not the last. Super happy as usually these covers are graced by celebrities and not chic minimal fashion stories, wahoo!

SPECKLED LIGHT


Wearing: Charlie May jacket and top, Acne jeans and sunglasses, Vagabond slides.

Enjoying the speckled light in Dalston one fine evening, attempting to recreate this genius by Yuvali Theis, SO good though! What a talent. Happy it’s finally hot enough to wear more of my SS14 collection, although looking a bit #normcore in my mom jeans. Cycling favours the trouser, ok!  

Haven’t had much time to post, currently casting for my AW14 campaign (as well as starting SS15! Excitement.) And headed to Paris tomorrow for mens collections. Life is busy but good.

FLIGHT MODE



That summer itch when all you want to do is have a holiday but in actual fact you’re knee deep in work and have nothing planned. The balloon sleeves on this dress quite make me look like I’m about to take off anyhow. Living in all black Y-3 and gleaming white Adidas for the last few weeks, until the heat wave struck and now I don’t quite know what to wear. I think my girl India is rubbing off on me a bit! I was always sporty spice in my school friends group anyway.

METALLIC


Featured: In Style

The two piece metallic short suit from my SS14 collection featured in In Style a while back. Never thought I’d be so into metallics but this pink is the perfect punch for Spring. My friend Anna wears the skirt two piece perfectly, matching sets always look so damn good.
