COLLAB / Amsterdam, Berlin & London

Wednesday, 30 November 2016

sponsored post*

Throwback way back to what seems like two minutes ago but was actually August, I spoke about the beginnings of my collaboration with the Danish denim brand, Noisy May.

There had somewhat of an oversized, black, denim void in my wardrobe since helping co-design the collection and needless to say, I was looking forward to filling it. Despite feeling slightly apprehensive about the fit of the samples, I needn’t have been. Each piece has been on heavy rotation in my wardrobe since receiving them.

In order to shoot some content as part of the collaboration, a whistle stop tour of Amsterdam, London and Berlin was planned. Sort of like a road trip but with planes and fueled by airport food and coffee. Revisiting Berlin has only cemented its status of my favourite city I’ve visited thus far but does everyone say that? Debuting the samples in the different cities meant I gathered a feel for how the pieces would work in my own wardrobe. Whether it was battling the bitterness of Berlin, travelling from tube station to the next in London or pretending I knew anything about cycling in Amsterdam.

Looking forward to sharing the photos and show you what we’ve been keeping under wraps.
Keep you posted.

the two daniels

Tuesday, 18 November 2014

daniel wellington watch*, daniel footwear shoes*, monki trousers, rimmel soul session nail varnish.

It's time to welcome two timeless (pardon the pun) pieces to my wardrobe. Step forward Daniel Footwear and Daniel Wellington, my two new favourite men that my boyfriend needn't worry about. After the ladies counterpart served a hefty three year sentence on my wrist this menswear piece provides a sturdy alternative without swamping the wrist. I have a sneaky suspicion you may be seeing a lot of these two pieces in the future. The team at Daniel Wellington have been kind enough to offer 15% off their full collection when you use the code 'iamcharlottemartin' at checkout up until November 30th.

zara pointed boot

zara boots.

Who knew that a shoe could evoke such feelings of lust? Well, me apparently. If there was ever a time to run screaming to the checkout that time would be now. I've made a conscious decision to invest in items and these black pointed boots couldn't have came at a better time. You can find them here.

life / daniel buren baltic exhibition

Tuesday, 26 August 2014





daniel buren at the baltic, ends 12th october.

On the South bank of the River Tyne and in my hometown of Gateshead sits the Baltic Centre of Contemporary Art. A former flour mill boasting large open exhibition spaces, clean lines and a strong design aesthetic especially for the graphic enthusiasts the Baltic plays host to a range of ever changing events and exhibitions all under one roof. Here are a quick two photos from the Daniel Buren exhibition which runs over two floors and features 'works in situ' displaying Buren's innovative use of light and colour.
