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
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.

It wasn’t long ago that an e-mail dropped in my inbox that really excited me. Fast forward one month later and I’m in Copenhagen attempting to manoeuvre my way around co-designing a 5-piece collection with Danish brand, Noisy May. How did that happen?
For those of you who may not be familiar, Noisy May is the directional and younger sister brand of Vero Moda. With a focus on denim and laid-back styles, Noisy May boasts a pretty impressive collection of great basics and staple styles. Having already been familiar with the brand after it integrated its way into my wardrobe in the form of one of the only 3 dresses I own, I knew myself and Noisy were a good fit.
After arriving in the midst of Copenhagen fashion week and subsequently sobbing internally after admiring the beauty of Denmark, it was time for some work. Admittedly, I hadn’t overthought the outcome of the collaboration. Instead, I chose to focus on developing key pieces that I knew would fit seamlessly into my wardrobe, and hopefully yours. Amongst the collection are some Holy Grail pieces that I constantly covet but can never find but also some of my favourite picks reworked in new ways. It shouldn’t be much of a surprise that you can expect a lot of oversized fits, a certain lack of colour and denim heavy gems to make an appearance. You can guess the rest.

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.

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.
