NEW ARRIVALS: MIXED GRAPHIC AND TROPICAL ABSTRACT PHONE CASES

This week’s new arrivals are mixed graphic and tropical abstract prints for the phone cases.

Mixed Graphic

The inspiration derives from geometry, which, in combination with polka dots, creates a modern representation of the Mixed Graphic in four colour ways.

The aesthetics of geometrical shapes and minimalist animal prints, combines Harper&Blake ‘s styles harmonically.

Tropical Abstract Phone Cases

Drawing inspiration from tropical tree leaves and a number of hand-painted prints, the Tropical Abstract print was created in 4 bright colour ways.

The intensity and variety of colours definitely suits the Blake style!

Harper & Blake Stylist: New Arrival Must-Haves

So if you follow our Harper & Blake Stylist- Sophie then you’ll know she’s the ultimate minimalist channeling everything Harper. Here she returns with her guide to achieving her signature style with her favourite Harper & Blake new arrivals!

Living by the fashion law of Black, White, Beige, Grey my wardrobe is one where accessories are key to achieving my signature look so when I first saw the Harper & Blake AW16 Collection I couldn’t wait to get my hands on half of it!

My favourite accessory at the moment, a simple scarf can bring together any outfit by taking it from ‘just thrown on’ to ‘styled and sophisticated’. From double wrapped around the neck to tied to the handle of your staple handbag, a scarf is the perfect accompaniment for adding colour, detail and style.

The Harper ‘Octopus Print Silk Scarf’ is my favourite of the season, the unique print matched with its silk finish makes this my ultimate staple; sophisticated, complex and luxurious! Teaming with a white shirt/ black suit combo, the detail from this simple accessory adds the perfect amount of femininity to a very masculine, yet one of my favourite final looks. And who says scarves are just for wrapping around your neck saving you from this awful weather? Hang off one shoulder and knot at the other, like a side cape of sorts- what’s the point of having one of these gorgeous scarves if you’re not going to show off its pretty print!

Another of my new arrival must haves is the Zebra Print iPhone case in Monochrome. My secret obsession in terms of fashion has got to be a bold animal print, so when there’s one in monochrome it was as if it’s made for me! Strong, detailed yet minimal this case is one definitely going on my wish list, if you’re a fan of this then definitely take a look at the Harper & Blake Leopard Print case, an accessory I’m never seen to be without!

Harper & Blake Debut Autumn Winter 2016 Scarf Collection

LFW AW16 - harper & blake -Olesya Asanova-3

Over the last few months we have been showing previews our debut collection of Autumn Winter 2016 fashion scarves titled “PREDATORS”.

The collection was officially launched last Saturday, at our exclusive London Fashion Week showcase in Shoreditch, in the presence of press, bloggers, fashion buyers and two lucky winners from our subscriber lists.

We also presented the collection to the general public yesterday and had a really great time at the weekend.

If you were unable to attend our event, the scarves were designed by Alina Zamanova, a hot print designer based in London and Ukraine. Half of the collection are designed in order to reflect Harper’s minimalistic and classic personality. Whereas the other half represents the experimental and adventurous Blake’s  style that is more fluid and ever-changing. The collection consists of eight silk scarves inspired by nature and wild animals. The prints include a raven, leopard, crocodile and an octopus.

Now that we have shown the collection, our next step is producing the scarves. This will be between May and August for delivery between July and September. However, before then we are offering our customers an exclusive chance to pre-order their Predator scarves now and save 65%.

New Products for the New Season

At Harper & Blake we have been working tirelessly on our new design ranges based on artistic and urban inspiration from our design studios in the centre of London. We are very proud to show you the first look at one of our many new phone cases that we have just released.

Featuring a minimalist brushstroke design in a vibrant red shade, it proves that something that is eye-catching and original doesn’t need to be intricate and complicated to garner attention, totally encapsulating the synergy of the two personalities of Harper and Blake in a subtle but interesting design.

Available for iPhones from 4S to 6S, it retails at £15 and is available to shop internationally on our website

Last week we announced that we were printing our Autumn Winter 2016 designs onto silk fabric. Today has been very exciting as they’ve arrived and we have finally gotten to see them printed on fabric. However, before we can show you we wanted to let you know a little bit about the event which we are holding in order to showcase the collection.

As part of London Fashion Week, we are very excited to announce that we will be showcasing our Autumn/Winter ‘16 collection on the afternoon of Sunday 21st  February in Shoreditch, at London HOUSE Studio and we are making this an open event for everybody to come and have a look.

As you may already know, the collection is inspired by predators of the wild and consists of eight silk scarves designed by one of London and Ukraine’s rising talents, Alina Zamanova.

The collection will be presented within a specially constructed set, designed by Alun Davies  and Joseph Stephen, who together, have built sets for clients such as Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Tatler and Harpers Bazaar Magazine. The set will be designed to reflect London as an urban jungle, tying in the theme of the collection and the city in which it is being launched.

Guests will have the chance to view the collection, speak with the designer and to also get a first hand feel of the new and exciting direction that we are heading towards for the future.

We’d love to see you there, so if your interested, please go to our facebook event page: facebook.com/events/1744906175721177/

Earlier this week, we revealed that we are launching our first collection of scarves for the Autumn Winter 16.

The collection, titled “Predators”, is inspired by nature and its wild animals and features references to the key foundations of our brand which are strength and ambition.

The collection features eight original hand drawn silk scarves. Four of the scarves are of minimalistic style to reflect Harper’s personality and the other four are edgier to reflect Blake’s personality.

All of the prints have been designed by hot print designer, Alina Zamanova who once worked under the print textile department at Alexander McQueen. Prints within the collection include birds, leopard, crocodile and octopus.

Currently, the scarf designs are being printed onto fabric at Silk Bureau and we plan to have some samples made next week in time for a photo shoot.
