Despite an Argentina and Germany World Cup final, there’s a distinctly French theme to this week’s proceedings with quirky slogans and national holiday inspiring us for the weekend. For the Francophiles amongst you and those with a more British based lineup, here’s a look at what’s on the NL Daily radar this week…

 

 

LA FÈTE NATIONALE
Though the actual fete day is Monday, there is bound to be plenty of French-influenced partying going on this weekend in honour of Bastille Day! Celebrate the French revolution with epic cheeseboards, traditional rillettes and “pissaladiere”, a French style pizza with caramelized onions, anchovies and black olives.


DUST TO DUST
“For the ultimate trans-seasonal look, the duster coat is the must have.  Layer this vibrant orange coat over a printed tee and blue ripped boyfriend jeans. Black pointed heels work best for night whilst metallic sliders are a fun choice for day.” – Camilla Hunt, NL Daily



BLOW YOUR OWN CRUMPET
Forget the social events and festivals, the highlight of any weekend is the long awaited lie in. Lazy Sunday mornings aren’t complete without an indulgent breakfast, and if a full English isn’t your thing, you can’t go wrong with crumpets. Just look at them, such bizarre buttery treats!



LIQUID DREAM

Pure liquid metallics, especially on nails, are driving us wild for summer. Effortlessly glamorous with a tough edge, check out the Barry M Aquarium range for oil slick delights.

 

COLD SHOULDER
Whilst trends may come and go, along with models of the moment, there are some figures that truly stand the test of time; and right now Brigitte Bardot, French actress and smouldering 60’s style icon, is once again inspiring us all. Find out the best way to wear with our guide!



ON TAP
Tapestry prints and embroidery make up the finest details for folk inspired styles. Think kimonos and free moving skirts, paired with crochet.

 

ZUT ALORS!
Continuing with the French theme, our menswear range is shouting loud and proud with quirky slogans thanks to this Sacre Bleu sweatshirt. Team this statement sweater with slim fit jeans and white plimsolls for effortless style this season.

 

ART SHOW
Mummenschanz's 'Musicians of Silence' is a show 'for children who think they are adults and for adults who still believe they are children at heart.' (New York Times) – what’s not to love about that? Their performance may be silent but it's super creative as they experiment with form through sculpture, shadow and light, and even the odd toilet roll apparently.
