The Re:Mark: Welcome, 2017!
It’s a new year: the festivities, parties—and for me—sun drenched vacation time have all come to an end. Anyone would forgive you for feeling blue, downtrodden and downright depressed. But if you ask me, it’s all about restarting, realigning your #goals, and giving yourself another shot at reaching for your dreams. Post-vacay I’m feeling refreshed and full of optimism for my year ahead. My resolution list is long—but my "Worst of 2016" list was luckily short, so really it’s all up for grabs.
For me, 2017 is all about getting my flat renovations started, and—fingers crossed—completed. That first flush of excitement being in a new place, and living with all its little flaws? Well that's totally all over: now I’m a woman on a mission. This month the bathroom work gets started, and I couldn’t be more excited! I’m going monochrome: white, gray and marble, with a splash of my accent color—mustard, obvs.
Speaking of which: our latest Homeware shoot has me thinking all kinds of acid-yellow thoughts. Whether you call it lime, gold or amber, yellow is having a serious Homeware moment, and I couldn’t be happier! If copper, navy and all things pineapple also float your boat, then Hawaiian Noir is the décor addition you need this month to beat back those January blues.
For all you true romantics, you’ll be thrilled to hear that pink is having a comeback. Not just on the catwalks, but for athleisure and homeware, too. And no, I’m not talking about sickly sweet bubble-gum (though there's a little of that around)—I’m talking super-sleek and grown up blush shades for miles. Our Womenswear athleisure collection is flirting with soft pastel pinks, for a nod to off-duty ballerina style. Something tells me that this will soon become my Sunday loungewear look: dreamy.
If "sugar and spice and everything nice" warms your heart, then you hard-core romantics will fall head-over-heels for this hot new décor trend.
Was your resolution to hit the gym more and look like your best self? You're in the right place. Girls: find your perfect sports bra, grab your fab accessories, and add breathable, sweat-proof makeup to your gym bag. Guys: top up your tracksuit basics, and make sure your loungewear's on point.
Others may still be shivering in this winter chill, but I‘m already thinking ahead to spring and how I can do a wardrobe refresh—with key pieces that won't break the bank, but will tell the world I’ve got my game on. Sometimes easier said than done!
Forget following trends for a sec: it's all about the core pieces. Feel like your Jan payday is taking forever to show up, but itching to make some new buys? We have a suggestion: the cult-classic biker jacket. Somehow this little baby looks great on everyone and never goes out of style. Investment piece? I think so!
Welcome to 2017 – I think I’m going to like it here.
