With the summer season hovering over your head and sweat dripping all over, there is at least one thing you can all rely on that won’t disappoint – the Rowing Blazers and Sperry’s new summer collection. This new collaboration between the well-known footwear brand Sperry and the clothing giant Rowing Blazer is everything you could ever ask for.
The New Collection
For this season’s collaboration, the brands have decided to take some inspiration from the past. Both brands have worked together on both Cloud CVO deck sneakers and Seamate canvas boat shoes. And while talking about the collection, Sperry said that their new collection is inspired by the ’80s and ’90s and is nothing but a huge celebration of colors, patterns, and textures. Their Cloud CVO deck sneaker includes three different looks. One of the looks is inspired by the 1980s cover of Lisa Birnbach’s “The Official Preppy Handbook,” and then there is another one that has the names of different cities embroidered on it. For the third one, they decided to keep it simple and went for the all-time famous ’90s color block. And their Seamate canvas shoes have an upper made of Blackwatch tartan madras. All of these range from $90 to $130 and are easily available on Sperry.com and Rowingblazers.com.
If you are curious about what the boat shoe brand has been up to other than their new collection with Blazers, well, they have been busy curating other amazing collections for you. They have been actively collaborating with other brands to make sure their fans do not have to wait long to get their hands on the brand’s other designs. They recently collaborated with Brooks Brothers on a limited-edition shoe line; this collection was made public in March. For this one, the brand came up with a total of 17 pieces, all inspired by Michael Bastian’s spring 2013 Brooks Brothers collection.
Despite the fact that lockdown squashed her extravagant wedding plans, Princess Beatrice finally married the man of her dreams in July 2020. This may not have been the day that she had hoped for, but it was clear to see that she was over the moon to finally call Edoardo Mozzi her husband – and she looked absolutely stunning on her big day. What most people haven’t realized, though, is the fact that the Princess officially became the Queen of recycled fashion on the day that she tied the knot.
Looking Her Best
Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day, and there’s no doubt about the fact that Princess Beatrice stunned everyone with her bridal look. She looked absolutely immaculate as she posed for photos with her new husband, and while most people were focused on the love between the newlywed couple, there were others who couldn’t quite take their eyes off her dress and her accessories. This was not just because they were beautiful, but also because they looked pretty familiar…
Recycling Her Wardrobe
In a world where fast fashion and the fashion world are coming under fire for their environmental impact, it seems as though everyday people aren’t the only ones making sustainable changes. For her wedding day, Princess Beatrice decided to ask her grandmother – the Queen – whether she could wear one of her old dresses. While she made it her own by adjusting the hemline and adding some sleeves, that’s exactly what she did. She didn’t buy a new dress, and she didn’t ask a famous designer to make something new for her. However, it didn’t end there. According to reports, Beatrice also borrowed one of her grandmother’s tiaras and wore shoes that she has had in her closet for years and worn countless times in the past.
How amazing is that? Hopefully, Beatrice can inspire more people to recycle their wardrobes.
