Liv Loves: Project 2 by Miss Selfridge

project 2
postoutfit
After doing some pieces with Miss Selfridge in the past, I was hugely flattered to be asked to work with them for their new collection, Project 2. Designed by the assistant buyers, project 2 is a purely British inspired 90s collection, with inspiration taken from Kate Moss' young signature style, Liz Hurley and that safety pin dress, cool neon graphic print all rolled into something completely modern and fresh (something that wouldn't look unfamiliar in a certain Rihanna's wardrobe...) With pieces for every occasion; festivals, parties, a 'hot date' and even some cool pieces simply for every day wear, there's something that could slip into anyone's wardrobe.

So, when I was asked to style and shoot the pieces for the press images I was stunned- and simply couldn't wait to crack on! There were some amazing flowing and fitted shapes and styles, and even the pieces that I knew would be out of my comfort zone made it all the more exciting, and I simply can't wait to mix it with my everyday wardrobe.

Additionally, the team have also created some amazing accessories to coincide with the collections release and to pair with the mainline pieces. Creating studded bowler style hats, bucket bags, studded jewellery and slogan belts and wrist cuffs. I'm also a little bit in love with the tribal collar necklace and love the fact it really brings something fresh and modern to a 90s inspired collection.

I also thought I'd be pretty fun to create a mini playlist (see above) to go along with the collection. With the 90s, grunge and surf style music playing a pretty huge role in my iTunes at present, I thought I'd pick my favourite tracks; past and present, that I feel sum up the collection and make for some pretty nifty listening.

    I love everything I think miss selfridge are such a contender at the moment I prefer them to topshop as their prices are more affordable! <3
