Kurt Geiger Summer 2017

By | SSI Group Inc | No Comments

 Courtenay Sohatee, International Retail Manager Wholesale Franchise and Nadia Colville, Wholesale Account Manager, showed us the Summer Collection of Kurt Geiger

Kurt Geiger (1)

Edie Campbell fronts Spring-Summer 2017 campaign
Kurt Geiger unveils new Spring-Summer 2017 campaign featuring British supermodel, Edie
Campbell. The campaign shot in London, stars Edie as the heroine of Kurt Geiger’s fashion fairy-tale. When designing the new collection Rebecca Farrar-Hockley was inspired to look to the new year as a fresh start and see the world through rose coloured glasses and the lens of ‘love, magic and enchantment.’
“Excess is unapologetic in the form of crystal embellishment, exaggerated bows, an abundance of pearls and vintage-inspired hand sewn appliques. A tiny glitter bag in the shape of a heart can be worn as jewellery, with platform wedges so high your head will be
in the clouds!”
Rebecca Farrar-Hockley Spring brings nature, which Rebecca chose to celebrate through pretty oriental prints, hand-sewn floral embellished appliques, whilst humming birds, eagles and swallow motifs adorn chain shoulder bags, backless slippers, luxe summer sliders and Kurt Geiger’s iconic fashion sneakers.
Fabrics are decadent with rich silk satin, Italian grosgrain, suede and soft calf leather. A pretty colour palette of English rose, rich berry, khaki and midnight blue clash against hot pinks and bright fuchsia. Blending casual with formal, the realms of day and eveningwear are distorted to create statement shoes designed to be cherished, but worn everyday. “I had a lot of fun dressing up for this shoot and loved the statement pieces chosen by Rebecca.
The collection is all about an element of surprise and an escape from the
everyday – which seems to perfectly embody the new mood for Spring.”

For Spring/Summer 2017, Gucci launches a series of bag designs that includes several brand new models and fresh versions of three classic styles. All feature the type of decorative treatment that the house has made its own – an eclectic mix of motifs, materials and graphics.

In keeping with creative director Alessandro Michele’s fascination with animals, the key bag design for the season, the Broche, features a shiny brass fox head, with eyes of Swarovski crystal, or pearls. All versions have a distinctive, rich, shiny gold-finished metal chain shoulder strap. A top handle model in shiny, smooth calf leather has a Gucci bamboo handle, referencing a historical feature of the house, and a reptile-skin detail on the flap. Brass studs outline the entire shape. Another top handle version is characterised by a bi-colour petal design on the flap and comes in both snakeskin and GG Supreme material. In addition, lobsters and helm french wire embroidered patches stand out on the surface of this style creating an unexpected complement to the fox heads. Finally, there is a smaller, white shoulder bag with a chain strap and a flap decorated with the petal design, which is here enriched with details in snakeskin. This style features an additional torchon strap.

GUCCI LAUNCHES NEW HANDBAG MODELS FOR SPRINGSUMMER 2017Undoubtedly, backpacks are enjoying a renaissance at the moment. Gucci launches the techpack – a backpack in the purple Rinascimento brocade featuring a feline head and the House web. Additional models include a small flat drawstring backpack with torchon shoulder strap and frontal pocket in green glazed Rinascimento brocade, embellished with a rich bow covered with yellow Swarovski crystals, and, in a larger size, backpacks that combine different brocades and the application of text reading ‘modern future’. All drawstring backpacks are provided with leather top handles.

As well as new styles, Gucci continues to evolve its classics: the Dionysus comes as a chain bag trimmed with exotic snakeskin and a top handle with bamboo handle and floral motif in stripes; the Sylvie top handle comes in a surprising green jacquard brocade with multi-coloured flowers, and a mini version in white leather with an extra blue-red-white torchon shoulder strap; the GG Marmont now comes as a large briefcase and medium-sized shoulder bag in quilted jacquard brocade, and, in the briefcase style, a quilted leather featuring a trompe l’oeil print.

Pottery Barn x Habitat for Humanity ReStore & Spring 2017

By | Giving Back, SSI Group Inc | No Comments


Surround yourself with the classic beauty of English Colonial furniture that has been updated with modern details when you add pieces from the Crosby Bedroom Collection to your sleep space.

Pottery Barn x Habitat for Humanity ReStore & Spring 2017 (7)Choose the entire collection, which includes a bed, tall dresser and bedside table in rich espresso. or, choose your favorite pieces from Crosby and mix them with other traditionally styled espresso or white bedroom furniture from Pottery Barn to create the exact look you want. Then, to maintain that look, dusting the wood with a soft cloth is all that’s needed to keep it looking like new. 

The bed is typically the focal point of any bedroom, and doubly so when it is an elegant sleigh bed. The Crosby headboard features a delicate curve and understated, beautifully-proportioned molding details. This bed comes in king and queen sizes to accommodate the size of your room, and its slat-roll support system supports your mattress with or without a box spring. This lets you position the mattress higher or lower as needed to suit your needs. Complete the look and settle in for a good night’s sleep with soft sheets, a cozy throw and a comforter or duvet from our bedding collections.

Put your alarm clock or phone-charging station on the bedside table within easy reach for convenience. Adjustable levelers make it easy to ensure the top is level so your things stay put. Crosby’s night stand has simple, classic lines to complement the sleigh bed. It is crafted from poplar wood with a silky-smooth finish. Tongue-and-groove frame construction and English dovetail joinery in the drawer makes this bedside table a quality piece. In addition to the drawer, this stand provides storage space on its lower shelf, where you can stack your favorite books or put a basket to hold small items.

Keep your room organized and neat when you store your clothes in the tall dresser from the Crosby collection. The dresser has five deep drawers with plenty of space to hold your items. The hardware comes in a nickel finish on the white models and glowing bronze on the espresso pieces, adding some extra eye-appeal. Adjustable levelers make it easy to set up the dresser, and, like the bedside stand, it features English dovetail joinery drawers and tongue-and-groove frame construction. Half-moon stops in these items make sure the drawers stay in the frames.


Imagine coming home after a long day and breathing a sigh of relief as you walk into your bedroom. You’re enveloped in the gentle, understated elegance and beauty of a wine country inn. That is precisely the experience you get when you make the Calistoga Bedroom Collection from Pottery Barn a part of your bedroom decor. The Calistoga collection features the look of natural fibers and stunning wood grain with the warmth of oak. Match these furniture pieces up with adornments that speak to you, including earth-toned drapes and comforters. Spread natural-fiber rugs on the floor to complete the look.

Pottery Barn x Habitat for Humanity ReStore & Spring 2017 (3)The Calistoga bed combines the elegant curves of a sleigh bed with the modern flair of an upholstered headboard. The main part of the headboard is upholstered with a layer of washed grainsack flax fabric that provides a neutral-toned backdrop to enhance the rest of your bedroom decor, such as throw pillows, sculptures and lamps. The headboard and footboard of this bed are attached to the side rails with a strong hook system, and the slat roll foundation means box springs are not needed to support your mattress. Strong Queen Anne S-shaped legs support this bed, which comes in your choice of sizes to fit your available space.

Set up your room with the extra-wide dresser conveniently positioned along one wall so you can easily access your clothes and stored items. This dresser features six curved-front drawers, and each drawer can hold up to 26 pounds. The dresser is crafted with English and French dovetail joinery techniques, giving you the strength and beauty of an heirloom-quality piece of furniture. Solid wood glides make the drawers slide in and out smoothly when you pull on the hardware handles.

Roll over in bed and turn on the lamp on your Calistoga bedside table to illuminate the room. This bedside stand features one curved front drawer and one shelf to keep important items close by at night. This table is lightly curved on the front edge of the tabletop and its S-curved legs to complement the other pieces in this set. The drawer is able to hold all of your essentials, and the strong shelf has the capacity to hold larger items or those you prefer to keep easily accessible in baskets – you can stack it with books, put a stone sculpture on it or fill a decorative box or basket with items you want to keep stored in an out-of-the-way spot.
