Gemma Critchley: Tangerine Dream

January 8, 2012 by


Pantone’s colour of the year for 2012 is 17-1463, or Tangerine Tango. The Measure in the Guardian remains to be convinced, but I reckon this hue definitely has legs. Not quite subdued enough to be one of spring’s hot pastels yet not bright enough to scream summer holidays, it’s an unassuming, subtle hue that is […]

Gemma Critchley: The party dress edit part 1: the high street

November 10, 2011 by


I love dresses. I love parties. I love Christmas So it’s only sensible to (rightly) assume that I love Chritsmas party dresses. You simply cannot beat the feeling on getting ready to go out to an awesome party, especially a festive one. It’s a legitimate reason to wear as much glitter as your body can […]

Gemma Critchley – Advertising: Marks and Spencer Christmas TV ad 2011

November 6, 2011 by


I saw the 2011 Marks and Spencer Christmas TV ad tonight for the first time. Even when I didn’t work in advertising, I always looked forward to the annual ‘fabulous-off’ from the big brands, and of course I always anticipate the Christmas Coca-Cola TV ad featuring those wonderful red trucks. When you hear ‘holidays are […]

Gemma Critchley: Friday Fash – winter wardrobe

October 28, 2011 by


The Guardian and the wonderful Imogen Fox have your winter wardrobe all sewn up in ten easy steps. My favourite: Lose the irony when it comes to Christmas-style jumpers. Just enjoy fashion for what it is, don’t wear anything in a ‘I don’t really like it but I like it because it’s cool’ way. That’s […]

Gemma Critchley: Seeing double (dots)

October 20, 2011 by


Here’s a little bit of polka dot porn courtesy of the ever-wonderful Marc Jacobs. He says FW11, they say AW11, I say AWES11! Double dropping dots, dude. It’s the way forward; and it’s work friendly, which is even better. Photo credit The Sartorialist. Are you into it? Think it’s ridic? Leave a comment and tell […]

Gemma Critchley: What’s your room number?

October 17, 2011 by


Today’s post is nothing more than an indulgent nod to one of my favourite films of recent years, <a title=”marc jacobs for louis vuitton wes anderson the darjeeling limited hotel chevalier jason schwartzman natalie portman” href=”; target=”_blank”>The Darjeeling Limited</a> by Wes Anderson. Or, more specifically Hotel Chevalier, the short film from the start of the […]

Gemma Critchley: X Factor dress hunting

October 9, 2011 by


The advent of X Factor has stirred up a few fashion memories… <a href=””><img title=”x factor logo janet devlin dress xfactor live shows white cream fringed dress” src=”; alt=”x factor logo janet devlin dress xfactor live shows white cream fringed dress” width=”241″ height=”135″ /></a> I’ve spent tonight reminiscing about the days when it used to […]
