Millie

Did you see Millie from Made in Chelsea looking gorgeous in LOOK magazine this week?

She just so happens to be wearing our sequin peplum top which is perfect for the impending party season. And it’s just arrived online and instores for £65 – are you ready for your new season sparkle? (And no, unfortunately, we can’t throw in her current squeeze Professor Green for free….)

Want your inside celebrity style tip? Hot off the press, Millie has just created her very own eyelash range using her experience as a makeup artist. Millie Mackintosh for Nouveau Lashes are available here.

Speaking of Made in Chelsea, the new series is due to start in a few weeks.

A CUP OF TEA WITH ROSIE – MEET THE ILLUSTRATOR BEHIND OUR LATEST COLLECTION

Rosie

We discovered illustrator Rosie Lovelock whilst she was selling her prints and wares at Brick Lane Market. Rosie by Oasis marks an exclusive collaboration, inspired by Rosie’s love of fine line, pattern and fairytales. We caught up with this lovely lady to find our a little bit more about her favourite things…

1. So tell us a little bit about how you started illustrating…..

I always loved Art lessons at school and used to take a sketch book everywhere I went. After completing my Illustration degree I moved to London. I have since started up an online shop with a fellow illustrator, selling illustrated bags and cards and am part of a collaborative project at Studio Lovelock with a short animated film in the pipeline.

2. What or who inspires you?

I take inspiration from SO many things, but most of all love anything with line, pattern or detail. I am also inspired by… Wes Anderson films, old family photographs, fabric patterns, Indian block printing, Grimm’s fairy tales, Bjork, London and its many chimney tops, fashion, conversations on the buses, other peoples clothes, Peter Blake, my grandma’s anecdotes, Tracey Emin, Bauhaus, old packaging, old circus posters and rides, botanical illustrations.

3. How did your collaboration with Oasis come about? 

I had a market stall at the Renegade craft fair in Brick Lane. Clive (the Design Director at Oasis) bought one of my lion tote bags and black rabbit tea towels, and said that he would like me to do some designs for Oasis. They’ve been the dream client, allowing me complete creative freedom. I was able to stay true to my style and really indulge in what I love drawing; patterns and lines with the odd animal thrown in. I was thrilled to be part of this project.

4. What did you want to be when you were growing up, has illustrating always been a big part of your life?

Yes, illustrating has always been a big part of my life despite my dream to be a cheerleader!  I used to draw inside my Rupert the bear books until I discovered magical things with blank pages called sketchbooks. Being an artist was the life for me (I soon hung up my pom poms). Since then I’ve always had a sketchbook on me where I can get lost in my world of intricate owls and lions in pyjamas.

5. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? 

There isn’t much spare time but I do love exploring the V&A Museum followed by a lavender cupcake. I also love knocking out a few freeform Kate Bush moves in the living room.

6.. What’s your favourite piece from the collection?

Very hard to pick….. I love the deer dress, it’s so elegant.

STREET STYLE: OUR SCARF PRINT BLOGGER EVENT

OASIS_BLOGGER_SCARF_PRINT

We had a lovely time with a fab group of Bloggers at the Fashion and Textile Museum this week. To celebrate the launch of our Scarf Print Collection, we hosted a live Q and A with Nicky Albrechtsen, the author of the books Scarves and The Printed Square which inspired the range, and our Design Director Clive – chaired by none other than Grazia’s Fashion Editor at Large Melanie Rickey. It was wonderful to host the event within the Museum, where Nicky’s scarves are currently on show, alongside key pieces from our new collection.

We were wowed by everyone’s style on the evening – here’s a peek at some of the most fabulous looks on show.

See all the photos from the event on our Facebook page here.

MADEMOISELLE ROBOT STYLES OUR LOOK DRESS

MADEMOISELLE-ROBOT-STYLES-OUR-LOOK-DRESS

It’s been one of our most popular pieces online and we couldn’t wait to show you how Fashion Blogger Mademoiselle Robot has been wearing her Look Dress.

You know the story – we asked Look Magazine readers to create their dream party dress, and from 17,000 entries we fell in love with Melissa Gormley’s cute and kitsch design. Mademoiselle Robot has been wearing her dress differently each day, and from her 60s inspired twist for a day out, or the chic and cosy touches for a casual day at home, we think she looks just lovely.

Read Mademoiselle’s Blog here and buy your Look Dream Dress here… but be quick! They won’t be around for long…

Mademoiselle Robot loves our Look Dress!
