Oh 2013 how fun you have been! It's been a super big year for the Skinnydip team, from launching in the summer into High Street giant Topshop to designing an exclusive range of perspex clutch bags for Selfridges, we have no idea where the time has gone! It's been a brilliant year for us and we hope it has been a good one for you too! Our team has grown from 4 to 9 and the Skinnydip family is stronger than ever. A lot has happened and below are some of the moments that have made 2013 so special:
Skinnydip hits Topshop!
We launched into Topshop Oxford Circus in August 2013 and threw a kick ass launch party to celebrate. We invited a mix of press, bloggers and friends and family to the event to help kick start our journey in Topshop! It was lovely to show off our new blingin' products and really give a taster for what Skinnydip is all about!
All you savvy Topshop shoppers loved our chic techcessories so much that our range went stateside! To all our friends across the pond Skinnydip is now available in Topshop LA, New York and Las Vegas (heres hoping a US road trip is on the cards for next year!)
Skinnydip's first feature in Grazia!
We love having our weekly mag fix in the studio, with the Skinnydip girls dominating the chat in the office it's always expected to have a Grazia at hand! Skinnydip had its first ever coverage in Grazia this year and we were all so excited about it! After head designer Danielle created our first ever clutch bag it was so great to get recognition from the mag. An embellished clutch is always a welcome addition to any outfit and our first design for River Island was defiantly a show stopper!
SS13 Look Book
2013 has been a year of first's for the brand, including producing our first look book! The very talented Lara Angol styled and shot our first range of products for our Spring/Summer 13 look book and we think the images look fantastic! We have since worked with Lara on our AW13 range and know in the future there will be more to come. If you haven't seen our latest look book yet check it out here, Magpies get ready for your bling fix!
Skinnydip styled with Fendi
We dont know about you guys but seeing our Galactic iPhone case teamed with an all Fendi look was defiantly a highlight of 2013! ES magazine featured our signature bling with a multi coloured fur ensemble back in October and the result was simply fabulous! We might not be able to afford a £7,000 jacket but at least we have the phone cover side sorted! Want the look? Our Galactic case is still available for iPhone 4,5/5C here!
We hooked up with iconic department store Selfridges nearer the end of the year and designed an exclusive range of perspex bags. Five embellished designs landed in cities including London, Manchester and Birmingham, not forgetting Selfridges online. These clutch designs are defiantly our best yet and we love the reaction they gained! The perfect party clutch arrived in store just in time for the festive season. If you were quick enough to snap one up don't forget to tag us @skinnydiplondon. Keep an eye out for an exciting collaboration with the store next year, Mr Selfridge would defiantly approve!
Thank you all for being there along our blingin' journey this year, 2013 has been a blast! Here's looking at you 2014, see you on the flip side!
Happy New Year! We hope its the best one yet!
Love The Skinnydip Team
