KEEP CALM & BUY BRITISH
Why it’s hot to be patriotic this summer.
2012 is Britain’s year - with the Diamond Jubilee, Olympics and Wimbledon, we are seeing the red, white and blue everywhere this summer, finally instilling some much needed patriotic pride into Britain once again.
Despite a crippling economy, unpromising weather and being hopeless at football, Britain has not lost it’s cheer. There’s an excitement in the air as the Olympics approach and the eyes of the world are upon our humble shores. Time to get battered by bunting and get flag waving.
And the best way to show some patriotic pride? Wear it of course.
MYFLASHTRASH have some divine offerings for this summer if you’re not prepared to do a Ginger Spice and sport a similar (iconic) Union Jack flag dress at any point.
Cannes Festival. One of the major fashion events in the calandar. We love nothing better than scrolling through Getty Images as the photographs roll in from the many photographers documenting the nine day long festival.
Our favourite dress so far has to go to the beautiful Diane Kruger in her mint green flowing dress. She paired the dress with simple diamond earrings and a matching bracelet which complimented her natural makeup and hairstyle.
Tilda Swinton wore her gold dress with minimal accessories only wearing rings on her fingers, similar to Virginie Ledoyen
who chose to wear her green dress with chandelier earrings.
Diane Kruger impressed us again and again with her style choosing to stick with her diamond watch and wear no other accessories, Frieda Pinto followered her lead too choosing to let the dress do the talking.
In celebration of World Fair Trade Day 2012 My Flash Trash are launching a range of poetry bracelets hand made in Guatemala featuring lines of poetry from up and coming Brit talent Greta Bellamacina.
These beautiful ethical handwoven bracelets support a local Guatemalan fair trade organisation with a percentage profits donated. Set to be a hit at this years festivals, fans include London's boho Portobello and Primose Hill set. Picking up on Summers South American Navajo Trend trend, give every outfit a poetic pocahontas edge.
Amber and Greta are best friends who were inspired on their travels together. Greta said: 'Traveling with Amber my trusty backpacker, has opened up a boundless world of all things unique.
I feel that poetry can capture the sensation and escape of exploring the unfamiliar- where the colliding worlds become alive.'
Amber and Great visted Guatemala and discovered the inspiring handwoven trade and met the locals. Their travels inspired them to work with local charities to help trade in the area. These bracelets will make you look good and feel good – what could be better?
