Trilogy Chelsea Launch Party

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

Following the huge success of our first ever Trilogy store on the Duke of York Square in Chelsea, we have decided to expand our horizons to being greater and even more ambitious lovers of denim. Next door, to be precise!

The opening of our brand new Flagship store on the Duke of York Square allows customers to indulge in an even better denim experience, and gives us the room for amazing denim consultations for those who can ‘simply never find the perfect pair of jeans’!

The much anticipated launch was bursting with denim colored macarons, fun manicures provided by nails inc., delish never ending snacks and bubbles courtesy of Manicomio and gorgeous celebs trying on jean after jean!

As the evening proceeded, Londons who-is-who rubbed shoulders while fashionistas and celebrities invited had a ball browsing through new collections and all-time classic must-haves!

A definite favourite of the evening and total trend of this upcoming Season was everything from Jbrands ready-to-wear white leathers that the lovely Cara Delevigne picked up, to leather optic and fabulous coated denim!

The large selection of exclusive to Trilogy jeans including brand new Luxe Sateen styles by Jbrand, gorgeous Paige denim and a super cool exclusively designed boyfriend jean created by FRAME and The Stylist, as well as custom made ‘Born on the Kings Road’ sweaters and super cute ‘Lover of Denim’ tees turned the evening into a special treat for absolutely everyone involved!

The launch was a wonderful success, and we had an complete blast celebrating our new Flagship store! Thank you to everyone who helped make this evening the best possible start to a new denim story. This is only the beginning! May the power of the denim experience be with you!

 


Trend alert: It’s all in the details

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Zips are certain to be a big trend for 2013. You will have seen them adorning garments and accessories already this season, while they’re only set to get bigger as we head into fall. This trend is made wearable for pretty much anyone to adopt as brands have added zips in all sorts of places from the subtle to the statement.

Paige and Rag & Bone add zips at the hips. Tuck a shirt in and wear them with ankle boots.

Paige and J Brand offer zip details at the ankles if you prefer a more subtle approach.

    

The latest runway shows conceded that the shinier the zipper the better, which is why we love J Brand’s new couture inspired silver zips that are the same as those used on Balenciaga bags.

  


The Perfect Shirt?

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

We can see why Current Elliott have given this shirt its name; it is unquestionably the most perfect denim shirt around, offering you a great fit and endless style opportunities!

Wear it open over a sundress or jeans, with skirts from mini to maxi, tied up, tucked in or out. We love how Drew Barrymore styles it with a bohemian white maxi (bottom centre), and how effortlessly cool it looks worn with simple blue jeans and wedges ala Haylie Duff (top left).


Trend Watch: Think Pink

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

There are a few colours that are set to be big for spring and amongst them is our inner little girls favourite, pink! All shades from the softest marshmallow and candy to vivacious fuschia and watermelon are set to be big for spring and we think that all of us could do with a splash of this uplifting shade.

Top left: J Brand 811 in Pale Watermelon.

 Bottom left: Iro leather jacket (available in store only)

Tips for wearing pink:

Find a shade that suits your skin tone. You have so many to choose from that you are guaranteed to find one that is right for you.

We’re not suggesting head to toe. Pick one item and make a statement of it, whether than be your jeans, t-shirt, scarf or belt.

Wear it now with dark grey or indigo to make it work for winter. We love J Brand’s 811 in Pale Watermelon with a chunky knitted sweater and black ankle boots.

Check out out selection of American Vintage for easy and affordable tees to capture the look, or get inspired by our Spring Pink webpage online.


New Arrivals from J Brand

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

We love the new arrivals from J Brand, in particular these colourblock skinnies as modelled by Alba.

She is wearing the Slick skinny in greyscale with a leather trim blouse by Elizabeth and James and a Helmut Lang leather jacket.

These jeans make quite a statement, but we think the patchwork is really flattering. Plus the use of black and grey means that you can add colour to your outfit easily enough.

We would wear these in the day just as shown with either a leather jacket or blazer and ankle boots. If you want to adopt the patchwork trend this season these are definately a good option.


High Class Advice from your Denim Specialists

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

The qualm we hear most about high rise jeans is that they remind you of your mum; they are coined with the opinion that you need to be much older to wear them. However, this is usually uttered by those who have never tried a high rise jean, as most of you can and have been converted.

The fact is that high rise jeans are not only super comfortable, but incredibly flattering. You don’t necessarily need to flaunt that you’re wearing a 10″ rise by tucking something in (although this looks great too). Wear a t-shirt or blouse loose over the top and no one is any the wiser that your smooth silhouette (which is fabulously muffin-top free) is a trick of some great fitting denim!

Brands are cottoning on to the trend, which is great news for us as it means so much more choice than a few years ago. We love that Citizens of Humanity gave us the Rocket skinny (seen on Jessie J above) so that high rise lovers could also buy into the coated denim trend.

At Trilogy we have high rise jeans in every shape to suit your need, from skinny to flared. Shop online for the latest or come in store for advice from the team.

J Brand and Goldsign offer a good selection of high rise skinnies. J Brand’s Maria and Major have been favourites at Trilogy for seasons! We think they are the perfect accompanyment to a floaty blouse or oversized knit, whilst the narrow leg shape is so easy for tucking into your winter boots.

 

 

James Jeans’ Hunter is a fantastic high rise straight leg. Always available in a clean, dark wash these jeans are ideal for the evening or as a timeless everyday essential.

 

 

 

 

 

Our favourite high rise bootcuts are available from Goldsign and Paige. The Hidden Hills (right) is a classic bootcut that looks amazing with heels and the double waistband ensures the high rise is even more comfortable. Goldsign’s Quinn is a slimmer alternative if you are more petite or are looking for an easy option to wear with flat shoes.

 

 

 

The Marrakesh by MiH is the perfect flared jean. Make a statement of the high rise by tucking a blouse in, or wear something fitted and tucked out. These black Marrakesh look great in the evening, or opt for a lighter shade ready for your summer wedges.


Style Advice with Alba

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Meet Alba, the assistant manager and visual merchandiser of our Chelsea store, and prime benefactor of excellent style advice. We caught up with her this weekend to ask her advice on styling the boyfriend trend.

Alba loves the Rolled skinny by Current Elliott, as it has a slimmer fit than other boyfriend jeans. She has teamed them with a silk top by Joie and an embellished blazer by Elizabeth and James.

With a splash of bright blue on the top and the addition of an electric blue belt (exclusive to Trilogy, and did you know that our belts are made with the same snakeskin as Victoria Beckhams handbags?) this look hits both the Boyfriend and New Season Blue trends right on the head!

This outfit will look great with wedges or ankle boots and when the weather gets warmer you can wear the silk tee and jeans alone with a pair of converse.

We love this look from Alba and hopefully it will give you a little inspiration for the new season!


Get ahead of the trend with Boyfriend Jeans

Friday, December 7th, 2012

As you will soon be aware, boyfriend jeans are set to be a big trend for summer. We already have a selection arriving in store and we believe theres nothing to stop you chanelling the trend before the weather gets a little warmer. The myth about boyfriend jeans is that they are more flattering than slimmer styles because they are loose, but this is a faux pax fellow jeans wearers! To get it right you need a good fitting pair of boyfriend jeans. Don’t buy them too baggy as they will give just like any other pair of jeans. You want them slouchy, but not ill fitting. Check out Trilogy’s latest selection from Citizens of Humanity, Rag and Bone and J Brand here.

In our humble opinion, the best way to style your boyfriends in winter is rolled up with an ankle boot with a bit of a heel. Jeans always look great with heels (recall how we’ve always got a few pairs on had in store?) and it’s no different with this style. In fact the contrast of heels with this masculine cut looks great and is right on trend. You will look effortlessly cool teaming your jeans with ankle boots, a slim fitting tee and a cardi or blazer for a smart day to evening look.

Above: Easy options that will looks great with your boyfriend jeans. Click the links to buy online… Me & Kashmiere scarf; 360 cardi; J Brand jeans; Sara Berman blazer; American Vintage white tee.

While we’re aware not many of us are lucky enough to have the drop dead figure of the rich and famous, inspiration is always good; Rachel Bilson shows us how to wear them in three different ways, suitable for when the weather’s a bit cooler.
