The Raw Edge Team Loves... Lianne La Havas

Spending a lot of time at REB HQ as we prepare for the launch of our Spring/Summer 12 Vintage Collection. On heavy rotation are Lianne La Havas E.P's Live in LA, Forget & Lost & Found! Loving her soul/folk vibe which translates from her music into her style.  From her appearance on Jools Holland, Lianne has caught the attention of critics, leading to her listing as a BBC Sound of 2012 artist and is now selling out gigs worldwide. Cant wait for her debut album release later this year. Would love to see her live. Check her out...

The Raw Edge Team Loves: Heeled Hi-Tops

You may have noticed here at REB HQ we appreciate a good chunky platform heel/boot/court, but hi-tops?  The whole trainer heel combo, on paper,  sounds like one of the many trends that need to be left in '96. However fashionistas & celebs all over are reaching into their inner spice girl and slipping on a pair of heeled hi-tops! My favourite are the pair of Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony below. Leandra's (Man Repeller)Isabel Marant pair are a popular choice & the 'do it yourself' platform converses are taking tumblr by storm. The Raw Edge Team may need to attend to their inner 90s kid and get involved. What do you think?
