This friday we went to visit Spitalfields market (the best day for fashion) spotting new designers. It’s a great place to pick up unique pieces and support local artists and designers. Set in Old Spitalfields, under cover making it perfect even went it rains- no weather issues! With loads of stalls from art to clothing to jewellery you can find some great items. It’s a little bit more costly but you expect to pay more as a lot of it’s handmade. I personally don’t mind paying more when you know you’re supporting independent designers.
Here are some of the stalls that really stood out to us!
Working with leather to create beautifully handmade minimalist accessories. We loved her roll top back pack – well designed and super safe with it’s roll top fastening. The perfect accessories to compliment any outfit. From the bright and clashing pattern to one thats head to toe chic black.
The brand sells one pack which includes 70′s inspired bang on trend round frames with 6 different lenses so you can swap and change with your mood or outfit! At a special price of £20 (just at the market £25) online they are are steal! Seen on the catwalk at Rio Fashion Week s/s 2013. A pair of sunglasses you can really rock whatever the weather or mood! they donate 10% of every sale to War child charity.
Amazing African printed garments. Ranging from the must have coat (pictured below) to simple jersey tees with printed panels! All handmade by the designer. Follow her on instagram @chanty74
Think these will be big if we get some sun that stays! Gorgeous leather sandals that come in a array of colours ( on trend matte neon are our favs!) Or if you fancy a bespoke pair pick out your leather for a unique sandal. The soles are make from tyres making them rather ethical! Loads of ways to wear them from evening to day!
If you’re hungry after all that shopping make sure to head to Square Pie for a freshly made hearty pie.

At Pretaportobello we try to pick out pieces that are transeasonal and wearable day and night meaning you get the most out of it! This week we picked this gorgeous bright floral pencil skirt by Louche. It’s high waisted pulling you in in all the right places and it’s bright pattern goes oh so well with a pretty plain peplum or statement tee.
Wear it in the day with a wordy tee like this boys boy boys one from LFF Boutique, add a chunky silver chain, round sunnies and suede sandals. Rock this look to work or out for lunch on a sunny day! Pair with tights and loafers when the sun isn’t shining.
To work this skirt at night all it needs is a white peplum, neon statement earrings, bold TA-DA! clutch and in your face heels. When the wear gets colder swap the top for a blouse and the heels for a shoe boot!
Laser cut bags are everywhere at the moment – a huge trend this Spring Summer 13. From high end to high street you will be sure to find the perfect laser cut bag for all your needs. They add a touch a wow to any outfit. Wear with a simple tee and jeans for the day or wear with a dress and heels for a night out.
Just in at Pretaportobello.com two beautiful laser cut tote bags in green and white. In the style of Ralph Lauren SS13 RTW but with a much smaller price tag and so many more ways to wear it. There are 5 ways to wear the tote and 6 if your friend has the other colour. With a removable soft slouch clutch, adjustable strap and available in two colours it’s a hugely versatile bag.
