THE TRUTH ABOUT AMY

Holism, moving poetry, organic and raw; paint, the Velvet Underground, 19-sixties: one word is not exhaustive enough to describe songwriter/painter/artist Amy Odell. From Irish roots to the edgy East London vibe, Seville and film scores to the critical arts and Peter Gabriel, get ready to meet the Pollock-ian, beautiful soul of a modern music mermaid.

How and when did you decide to focus on music?

It all started when I moved to London. I began to naturally meet musicians and I started off by singing on some projects, and just collaborating, hanging out with a lot of interesting people and not worrying about where it was going. I was just in the moment and happy to be creative. I eventually decided to teach myself Read more

NEXT SUMMER: WHITE EVERYTHING

MERCI ME LONDON - ALL WHITE STYLE

THERE IS NO CLEANER CHIC THAN AN ALL WHITE OUTFIT

Minimalist vogue. Next years summer looks bright, it looks mostly white & we are right on trend for the clean chic with our mainly white collection (of course available in other colours). We’ve made white our base colour, our staple, it goes with everything. It’s strong, fresh and creates a crisp, edgy but cool look. See for yourself how Tommy Ton captured white on white at New York Fashion Week – Spring 2015. Why not go deeper and try a beauty look to match for a true all white outfit. Or for understated and effortless style complete with a touch of colour; block it with denim, linen, silk or keep the colour to the shoes and accessories. If you’ve mastered this look then consider the white smokey eye. As pictured below.

Needless to say I LOVE WHAT I DO, lower case would not illustrate the conviction. I am a designer not solely but a lover of it all and a wanderer to possibilities. Of most creativity has been sitting in the large part of my heart since it was something I could understand and identify. I love what I do that I’m mostly in what I do. Especially those things that go on to create on their own, like this dress.

It moves to a life of its own, but in tandem with your walk, mannerism and your subtle signatures of posing and standing and talking. It picks your small movements and ever so gently amplifies them with an easy beauty, it plays with the wind while you walk and the wind without you. It touches you lightly so you feel you may not be wearing anything at all. This isn’t an advert, for me it’s the truth and no manner of picture or even video can represent it, you simply just have to see it and wear it for yourself.
