Peacocks suits the mood - Drapers article heaps praise

The clothing industry's trade periodical carries an article praising clothes retailer Peacocks this week, featuring in its highly informative "Case Study" series.

Concentrating on Peacocks' enviable position as a leader in on-trenmd fashion retailing, Drapers looks at the company’s strength in reacting quickly to all the latest trend developments and how they can have a lot (up to fifty) new womenswear lines in store each week, such as the Sedgewick boot (pictured).

Using a Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) system means that Peacocks can retain more control over their supply-chain and production management, according to the Drapers article. This means that “a huge amount of duplicated effort has been eliminated”.

Peacocks’ lifecycle management systems ensure that their reaction to the often fast changing plethora of trends is fast. By spotting trends and gearing their product offering to suit what’s on trend, their fast fashion approach is massively successful.

Star Wars Shoes

Just noticed that the mighty German sports clothing company Adidas (who else?) have made a brilliant range of Star wars-themed gear.

Sadly most of these garments and pairs of cosmic footwear will sadly end up in collectors' archive boxes, mint condition and untouched. Boo to that. If you have Jabba The Hut "Attitude" basketball shoes, wear 'em, I say!

Also available - Stormtrooper "Conductor" hi-tops, a Death Star baseball jacket - and loads more. Go take a peek atthe Adidas online store - but make sure you've a) got plenty time to gawp and drool, and b) you've encased your credit card in plutonium at a seabed location on another continent. Because otherwise you may well be in danger of doing yourself an early Xmas. Be warned!

And may the Force be with you ;-)

Winter boots for your feet!

We've been having a look round the blogs and the websites to see what's available in terms of winter boots. We'd heard that another 'white winter' has been predicted for the UK, so this ain't gonna be no year for canvas baseball boots :( It's time to look for what's going to keep the toes warm for this winter...

The Dr. Martens range is looking pretty darn good this year. With some mad colorways and some really cool classic designs (like a classic 60s biker boot - available in women's and men's sizes) - these are good if you want to spend in the mid-to-high bracket.

These ladies boots from Peacocks are low in price but high on style:
