INTRODUCING JEANOLOGY: AN INTERVIEW WITH THE DESIGNER

Denim Destination

interview with Rio

We grabbed 5 minutes with Rio, our Jeanology design talent.

What’s the typical design process for a pair of Missguided jeans?

The first thing I do is look at the fits and what core denim pieces we need to cover all the different types of body shape. Then I’ll decide which fabric suits each fit. For example I like to use a fabric to hold the shape in and give support for a skinny jean. In comparison, for the looser, more vintage styles, I want to get a true denim with no stretch to achieve the true vintage feel.

What’s the thought process behind the denim branding?

We wanted the branding to be understated and simple, without taking anything away from the look of the jeans. We gave each jean a memorable name and a colour linking to the specific style, which should make it a lot easier for our customers to determine which jean is for them.

Describe your denim style…

My own denim style is a simple skinny leg, high waisted and ankle grazing.

Where did you take your inspiration from when designing and naming the jeans?

I wanted the name to relate to the style of the denim with a cool style icon, and I wanted there to be a history behind the designs.

Which Missguided pair of jeans would you pick for yourself?

Edie is definitely the one for me.

How do you decide which jeans come in which washes and colours?

We look to which denim each customer would wear, what would be their staple piece and which would be the strongest seller.

Who’s your ultimate denim icon?

Kate Moss – unreal.

How important is it to consider body shapes when designing the different styles?

I think it’s very important. We want each customer to feel confident in what they’re wearing.

What does the future hold for the Missguided denim collection?

This is only the beginning. We really want to push the denim range, and for the customers to relate great denim with Missguided.

GET SET FOR THE RACES

Dust off last year’s festival flower crown or borrow your mum’s favourite fascinator and get set for the start of race season. We’ve asked our in house stylist Sara to create 3 race ready looks fit for Ladies Day 2014.  Jump to it in a jumpsuit this weekend at Aintree, look cool in co-ords at Cheltenham or have a midi moment at The Royal Ascot. Get set & go all out- the Missguided way!

Look 1 – It’s a Twin Thing

Lacey Crop Top // Elanor Midi Skirt // Nanase Box Clutch // Jemima Snake Skin Sandals

‘Co-ordinates are huge for SS14 and this lady-like set is perfect for race side strutting. Add a white longline blazer over the top for when the chill sets in.’

Look 2 - Jump On It

 

Matyle Metallic Jumpsuit // Doroteia Clutch Bag // Jemima Snake Skin Sandals

‘For no fuss, no brainer styling – throw on a tailored jumpsuit. This metallic croc-print number has a real catwalk ready feel and the hint of colour will be brought to life in the sunshine.’

Look 3 – Midi Moment

 Maria Leather Tee // Skyla Split Skirt // Clara Heeled Sandals

Leather is a wardrobe staple and we are all over white leather this Summer. With the boxy shape and simplistic bodycon skirt this plays with your silhouette but ensures a strong finish. The sunglasses keep you looking cool even after a long day.

OUT OF SHORTS

The clocks have changed, and the sun is shining, which means spring time is officially upon us! It’s time to give that Winter silhouette a shake-up, with the perfect Sping/Summer staple: Culottes. Think relaxed tailoring, and fluid fabrics – whether you go with a bold print, or simplistic black, culottes are the perfect piece to throw you into the new season. So free your legs of those skinny jeans, and embrace this season’s easy breezy trend.

Still unsure? Check out these street style beauties for a bit of inspiration..

WORD UP

Designers dug out their dictionaries and added some expression to their SS’14 collections.  This season is bursting with sportswear chic so it’s no wonder that the streets are littered with slogan tees.

Ashish, Alexander Wang, and Christopher Kane all showed us how it’s done.  But a word to the wise, leave head-to-toe lettering to the pros and opt for printed pencil skirts and slogan sweatshirts instead.
