Why do you use Instagram? Do you adorn photography? Enjoy exploring? Simply love taking pictures? Or maybe you use Instagram to follow the lives of people you admire, using it as a way to create inspiration and share styles.

Quite possibly your usual weekly Instagram activity may consist of the following:

Monday: Showing the world what nutritious meal and organic drink you decided to treat yourself to as you loosen your vintage work tie for lunch. #RalphLauren

Wednesday: Photographing the weights you supposedly got 6 reps out of while sporting colour coordinated gym gear. #NikeFreeRun

Friday: Then onto the bucket of ice encasing a glossy bottle of rosé you split between your squad. #SaintLaurent 

Instagram users have rapidly shaped the app into an influential and inexhaustible hub magnifying whatever is popular. However, the impact it has had on the fashion industry was unforeseeable to say the least.

Although, a conjoining thought from seeking pleasure is to receive recognition and for people to naturally #Like what we do. As a result, our efforts and attention into the way in which we dress, whether it be for sport, dinner or casual wear has increased naturally. We now see the way in which we dress as an image from the viewpoint of others as we scroll through life.

#Follow: Our styles are taken from what we see on TV, magazines, the Internet and now Instagram. The app gives you the chance to express your style and share with others.


@BryanBoyCom
is just an example, starting his fame and fan base on the Internet; he has now become one of the biggest influencers on Instagram posting updates daily. The majority of us follow the more conventional profiles depending on our personal taste. We cannot help but be #Inspired.

#InstaVideo: A fairly recent addition to Instagram that has been embraced by the world of fashion, especially writers and bloggers at fashion week, shows and collections.


The new feature gives us instant ‘front row’ footage of the latest runway styles before any magazine or website and provides a personal insight to current ins and outs, as well as inspiration for our wardrobe.

We cannot escape fashion throughout our everyday lives, not to mention on Instagram. Trying to avoid fashion on Instagram would be like trying to avoid getting wet when going swimming #Fail. Vivienne Westwood consistently spoke of fashion revolutions that change the way in which we apply, perceive and interpret fashion. Instagram has done simply that. Defined by Tinie Tempah as the influential ‘fashion culture that holds no literal existence,’ Instagram is precisely changing the requisition of fashion and is once again another social matrix added to our home screen with double tap approval.

The REBEL8 collection for Spring 2014 sees a range of T-shirts, hoodies and sweatshirts sporting the brand’s signature logo and script.

114-LB-Blog-06[1]

Easy to wear pieces, this collection would slip seamlessly in to any man’s wardrobe.

The lookbook is styled over a monochrome background made up of Mike Giant’s hand drawn illustrations. This style enforces the brand’s affinity for street style, and appeal to creative individuals.

The use of denim and hardwearing fabrics give the collection a gritty, grungy feel, and we at PAUSE like the versatility of their red tartan shirt, which could be worn both dressed up and down throughout the day.

REBEL8 Spring 14 is now available in all UK stockists and online at www.rebel8.com.

Pharrell is a clear fan of the Adidas brand, so naturally a relationship between the singer and sportswear giants has been rumoured.

The star was seen sporting a white Adidas zip up with the word ‘GIRL’ written in a floral font (also the name of his latest album) at the Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards.

These rumours have been confirmed with a collaboration to take place Summer 2014.

Adidas have never worked with a designer who owns their own textile company before. Pharrell’s company ‘Williams’ produces yarn made from plastic debris found in the ocean, page and is likely to be something they use in the products for this collection.

Details of the upcoming project are still unclear but we hope to gain more details over the upcoming weeks.
