• It's All About ASOS

    ASOS Revive 


    We have been very busy here at YS Towers these last few weeks but I did manage to slip away and check out the ASOS spring/summer 2012 press day. I think it's fair to say that ASOS are killing it for nest spring/summer, especially with their specialist collections ASOS White, Black, Africa & Revive. It was pretty hard to pick a favourite but Black & Revive look set to cause some havoc with my bank balance.


    More neon light YS love 


    ASOS Black is a collaboration with print designer Lauren McAlmont, expect a clash of patchwork, print, stripes, rubber & foil, all presented in a collection of truly gorgeous dresses. ASOS Revive teamed up with guest designer Ebru Ercon to produce a 90s inspired collection of oversized proportions and a pair of baggy shorts so good I wanted to stuff a pair in my bag and run! Loved the way the product was lit up by ultra violet neon lights - we seem to have a thing for that!


    ASOS White gets sporty


    ASOS Africa 


    Alongside all of this, there are collaborations with Sophia Kokosalaki & Piers Atkinson, ASOS main collections and new designer brands added to their already impressive brand mix. I think that makes ASOS one of the most exciting places to shop, don't you?! The good news is we have a few months to start saving!

  • Underneath The Neon Sign

    Hannah preps the area 


    As you know, Yasmin is now a mum so the great VOGUE.COM blog honour is now with Hannah & I for the time being, we hope you enjoy!


    Template is up - thanks Athena! 


    A few weeks back, we blogged about our neon sign and we are pleased to announce the sign is now finished, up and looking wicked.


    Our friend from Neon Circus showing us how it's done 


    We chose the Voltaire quote, "Paradise is where I am", (penned by our wonderful neighbour and friend Athena Procopiou). It's such a nice thought to start your day with.
