Batman, being the main character in one of the most anticipated films this year, has once again become a trendy figure of popular culture. And while comic books and film memorabilia sales were expected to rise, it’s the Batman influence on fashion that is the topic of the post.
Over the last few weeks we saw Cheryl Cole stumble out of Rose Club in London wearing a dress covered in Batman logos followed by rising stars Perry and Jesy from Little Mix sporting Batman inspired attire. And however geeky you are inside I bet most of you suddenly want a piece of that comic book character! Well we are in luck, since the Batman inspired collection is made by affordable East London brand called Lazy Oaf. They started their journey in 2001 and since then have been producing graphic apparel and cheeky accessories. But it is not until their latest collection that they really caught my eye and I bet you can see why.
Below I picked out my favourite items from Batman collection: dress as seen on Cheryl and Jesy (£60), monochrome shirt (£60), t-shirt as seen on Perrie (£40) and logo shirt (£65). Shop my picks and see the rest of the collection here.

I’m slightly excited about Cheryl Cole’s return with her new album. Not because of the music she will be bringing out, but because she is coming back to spot light and I have indeed missed my favourite clothes horse. And that is compliment. Her petite figure and natural beauty allows her to pull off practically anything and makes me (and I am sure many more like me) lust after every single thing she wears.
Last week sneak peak shots of her new video flooded the web and I could not be happier with what she is wearing: mixing up patterns, tropical prints and neon – she is ticking every trend box. Indeed it did not take me long to find pieces she was wearing, and all the fans with money to spend can easily get their hands on the outfit at net-a-porter.com!
On the picture above she is dressed in Finch tropical-print cotton-blend blazer by Altuzarra(£1040), Dolce & Gabbana leopard-print high-wasted bikini briefs (£150) and Brian Atwood Alima neon patent-leather pumps (£670). So if you have £1860 lying around you can steal her style, something that does not happen often with stars in music videos who often get pieces designed just for them.
But of course I would not tempt you with high price items without providing an affordable alternative. I searched the high street for similar pieces and here they are: Topshop tropical floral blazer (£65), Motel high waist hot pants (£20 at Asos) and Office Krazy paving neon heels (£78). Grab an outfit inspire by Cheryl for more affordable £163!

But this project is different: the process of purchasing is not what you are used too. To access the online shop you have to fill in a questionnaire that determines your style. But do not worry, it is easy – all you have to do is decide what picture is more ‘you’ and after less than a minute you are on the results page. Here is where you can shop the shoe range – but not all results are shown, only those that suit your style.
This interesting concept is already adopted by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen T-shirt line, Jessica Simpson Beauty range and soon to be adopted by our own Cheryl Cole – she is unveiling her shoe collection on 6th December (more of which in the later blog post). I am not 100% sure I am ready to shop only the pre-selected range, but nevertheless I am ready to give it a go.
Above is my favourite shoe from the collection – The Pauline in Wine Suede. And the price – $79.99 (about £50).

Kandee Shoes. If you haven’t yet heard of them – learn this name.
Established in 2010 the aim of the designer Josh Wayman (who is 21 years old by the way, massive oh my god moment) is to create eye-candy shoes, which he has succeeded at doing – every pair is delicious and absolutely fabulous. The brand already has a large celebrity following: Cheryl Cole, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna and Victoria Beckham to name a few. But even though A-listers wear it – the shoes are still accessible (price wise) for the high street lovers.
So ladies, time to add a new name to the wishlist. And a new pair of shoes to our shoe closet (you will probably end up with more though, they are irresistible). Go to http://www.kandeeshoes.com to see the full range.
