Party Large! Ideas for festive outfits in Lindex extended sizes

Party Large! Ideas for festive outfits in Lindex extended sizes

What time is it? It’s Glam time! This is the most glamorous time of the year where parties are all over allowing us proper excuses to shine even more (not that we need excuses to shine, but, anyways…) and I am glad to share some party outfits I picked up in the Lindex collection currently in stores.

The idea is to encourage ladies like Moi, that dress larger sizes, to try some new ways of pairing pieces ad creating unique outfits. Even when most of the clothes in the stores are black, you can still try something new for you, that channels glamour and fierceness.

The truth! Plus Size Top Model Scandinavia

The 2016 Scandinavia’s Next Top Model season was all dedicated to the plus size girls. The winner got a contract with the British agency Milk Model Management, which is one of the most respected agencies in the industry, plus a cover in the Slink Magazine and campaign with lingerie chain Change.

The contestants – from Norway, Sweden and Denmark – ranged between 20 and 27 years old, they looked all very beautiful and determined to be the next Top Model of the coldest area of the world :-)

A plus size girl and the #KenzoxHm collection

I was ready! Elbows sharpen, combat mood and adventurous spirit on! It was 19h, 2 degrees when I left my apartment in a central location in Oslo heading to the only H&M concept store in town. It was a preshopping event, from 20h to 22h in which the hundreds of people queuing in the cold would be divided into groups to have 10 minutes to shop the Kenzo collection before everybody else. It did seem like a great thing for me. There I was, super cold, enjoying warm coffee and colourful doughnuts that were served for the poor lucky pre-shoppers.

I was in the second group. From the window,  I could already spot the location of the pieces I really wanted. The idea was to run and score my favourite dress, jacket, boots and socks. I also had the mission of buying something for my husband. It could be anything I thought he would wear. 

By the time I finally got in the store, I and dozens of too excited Kenzo fans apparently had the same strategy. When they opened the fence I really wanted to run and grab that dress, I really wanted. But I just could not be aggressive with the other ladies and the desired piece was not mine. It ended up in someone’s faster hands. But in a world where good connections are everything, my girl went to the storage and I got all the pieces I wanted, in the largest sizes.

Turning summer into autumn and the perfect fit

Turning summer into autumn and the perfect fit

 

The fit is the whole big deal when it comes to clothes. We want to have them embracing our curves when we buy a new piece, right? Fit is magic, is key. For this reason, it can be the biggest challenge for the plus size production.

In years of experience as an insider in fashion brands, I learned that if you want to produce plus size clothes, you got to cut for it. meaning that when designing a new piece, you must fit for the size you cutting. Seems obvious but there is a lot of brands out there working with what we call scaling – like fitting for 36 and increase the sizes using a table, a scale, and that just doesn’t do. You end up with shoulders by the elbows for instance.

Shinying in October Pink

Shinying in October Pink

October is a special month in fashion. It is when the industry supports the fight against breast cancer by donating part of the sales to research and development. Lindex launched the special Pink Collection and it is just great that the Finish house is contributing with fighting breast cancer with its own designs this year.

The pieces are a modern, feminine and strong conceptual range of carefully-selected garments and accessories in an exciting palette of colors with 10 % of the price being donated to cancer research.

Romantic & shiny curves

This top is all things romantic, the white plus lacey details added to the bell sleeves fit brings my thoughts to a romantic date in the seventies. In this context, a pair of discrete lurex pants and golden heels feels just right.
