Girls we give you MINGA LONDON – your welcome!
Minga London’s motto …. “Life is too short to wear boring clothes“
Where do we sign up?
Well we are pleased to introduce this quirky British label to our store Spoiled Brat – where we totally agree life is WAY too short to wear boring clothes – so much so that NONE of our clothes are BORING!
So who are MINGA Clothing – well they are a London-based fashion brand which creates new wave fashion which is both edgy and weird. We asked the designers of the brand to describe their brand in one word and they have said :
“LOVE, STYLE, INSPIRATION!“
Oh, wait, that’s three words…but who cares?!
One thing the designers are very clear about is that they draw inspiration from absolutely everything! And we mean EVERYTHING – from hipsters to punks, from fashion bloggers to girls next door, from goths to emos, from the secret runways in Soho to the dull businesswoman who turns into a fashion icon during her lunchtime!
We have followed this brand for some time now, immediately drawn to their bright colours and quirky 90s inspired aesthetic. So you can imagine we JUMPED at the chance to be able to stock the brand. We think it fits into our website JUST perfectly – sitting well alongside our brands like skinnydip, tatty devine and wildfox.
So who are they? Well its owned by a boyfriend & girlfriend creative duo – which all started when they decided to move to London without having the faintest idea of what their future would hold. Once they arrived in London, they started looking for any sort of job which would allow them to pay for their shabby little room and ended up working at a vegan restaurant. They were always struggling to pay our bills and that gig was always supposed to be a temporary thing anyway, so they started looking for alternatives.
They have both always been into fashion, running blogs and selling stuff online as well as arts and photography, so they decided to take the best of both worlds by giving the street markets a try! They bought a couple of t-shirts, drew up some cool prints, then dyed the whole thing in their bathtub their home and off they went to Camden Lock Market with our 10-20 items – they didn’t even have a clothes rack or a store banner, but at the end of the day they had sold them all.
Soon enough, they were building up a community of people who followed us to every market they went to, but they didn’t have enough time to go to markets every day, so they took some phone pictures of the products and uploaded them onto eBay. They all sold in a few minutes…… they then left their jobs the next day and started dedicating every single moment to dreaming, creating, planning and producing.
So there you have it! The story of Minga London is one of hard work, passion and dedication. They know they still have a long way to go, but they can tell you this much: it’s going to be a heck of a ride!
We are sharing some MINGA’S new lookbook images – which we know your gonna LOVE & you can shop the new range online here at spoiled brat in our MINGA London online SHOP
Chloe Sims worksout in Wildfox
Towie star Chloe Sims looks casual and cool wearing Wildfox Couture from Spoiled Brat
They TOWIE cast have been busy filming for season 20, which debuts tomorrow night – excited much???
So we really cant blame the ITVBe cast’s Chloe Sims, Dan Edgar and Diags for letting off some steam as they larked around in their local Essex Park today.
The 34-year-old blonde bombshell couldn’t wipe the smile off her face as she enjoyed a playful take on her usual outdoors exercise session with her towie pals.
Chloe was certainly looking stylish and was dressed for comfort for the energetic day out in our Wildfox baggy zip-up hoodie, with the Stay High graphic on the back. The TOWIE star, who joined in season 2 in 2011, teamed the look with a matching pair of Wild Fox skin-tight leggings and trainers.
Despite her low-key ensemble, she opted for maximum glamour when it came to her beauty look in the form of heavily bronzed cheekbones and a layer of false lashes.
The wildfox set worn by Chloe is available at Spoiled Brat – the hoodie and pants come in the deliciously soft wildfox fabric that we LOVE about the brand, and both pieces are from their new season “Sun Kissed” collection. Wildfox has a huge celebrity following and Chloe is the latest to get in on the Wild Fox action 🙂 And Chloe has become quite the “brat” recently – last week she was spotted in our Tallulahs Threads denim jacket and our Happiness Brand cross body bag.
Shop both here in our official WILDFOX STORE
Daydream Nation LA – the new kid on the block
Ladies, please let us introduce Daydream Nation – your new favourite label
This super fun brand from LA LA Land, DayDream Nation has just arrived in the UK at Spoiled Brat.
According to the designers they “dance in our undies and wear their hearts on their sleeve“
So who are they? Well Daydream Nation is a Los Angeles based brand, which is a collective team of dreamers, designers and artists who love to create soft, beautiful and feminine intimates & clothing. Their products are produced from vintage fabrics and are mostly ethically manufactured in Los Angeles, California. They are a small and passionate business, nothing is mass produced and you can be assured that your product is ethically made with love.
The brand launched last year in 2016 with their lingerie, and they pride ourselves themselves in their soft colour palette and extra stretchy, soft, slinky fits. Daydream Nation is a love letter to Los Angeles. Follow along with them for inspiration, poetry, lovely undies!
The new Valentines range has just dropped and its beautiful – the fabrics used are super soft and luxurious, great for lounging and feeling loved. Very wildfox, a fellow LA label, Day Dream Nation is a label to watch. The range is a full collection of intimates – like pyjamas, the short onesie is to die for, oversized sweaters and roll neck tops.
“The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you, don’t go back to sleep.”
Wildfox new SS17 Collection is Spreading Some Sunshine
Wildfox ushers in the warm weather season with the launch of its brand spanking new Sun Kissed spring 2017 collection. The accompanying lookbook, ‘Sun-Kissed’, follows models Robin Marjolein and Victoria Germyn, on an 80’s inspired getaway complete with their Wildfox wardrobe. Featuring all the brand’s signature baggy beach sweaters (including cashmere blends) as well as graphic t-shirts and flowy trousers, these looks are perfect for a sunny holiday.
The good news is, we have just received our 1st delivery of the new range – we cant promise the sunshine, but we can promise the wildfox goodies!
The new range is a retro glam inspired collection, featuring all our fav styles from wildfox and the quirky slogans and graphics that we love so much about them. We have said it before about Wildfox – and we will say it again, its one of those brands which is timeless and seems to get better every season! There seems to be a slogan, or a graphic which everyone can relate to. A fashion brand literally made for us!
Best friends Kimberly Gordon and Emily Faulstich cofounded Wildfox in 2007, as they were inspired by their shared love for vintage tees and whimsical, feminine styles. These two qualities remain a key part of the brand ethos today. And the brand has grown ever since: while it started as small run of cheeky graphic Wildfox tees and loungewear, the label has expanded into equally playful and lighthearted ready – to – wear apparel and accessories as well. The quality of the product is second to none, infact we discussed this in a recent blog post.
We live in wildfox – literally! So very excited with our new delivery.
What are your favourite pieces from the new collection?

Our WILDFOX Love Affair!
Once upon a time in 2007, we fell in love with a WILDFOX
We call it Fate
Way back in 2007, when Spoiled Brat was 2 years old, we were surfing the internet and stumbled across some quirky sweaters by a little known brand called – WHITEHORSE COUTURE. Instantly it was love & so our 9 year love affair consumed.
Since then, Whitehorse, has become the cult worldwide phenomenon brand Wildfox which is lusted after by the a-list of celebrities and bloggers alike.
For those of you who dont know this brand (first of all, where have you been?!) … but really this is a vintage-inspired women’s fashion brand based in LA LA Land. It was co-created by two childhood BFF’s, who were inspired by their mutual love for vintage t-shirts and their friendship.
Today, the brand continues with this ethos, under the Creative Direction of founding partner Kimberley Gordon.
We have yet to meet anyone who doesnt like this quirky brand – to be honest, we really don’t understand how people cannot like Wildfox?! There is really nothing not to like about them – their lookbooks rock, we spend hours lusting over them. They are super inspiring, super fun and girly and literally made for us. They talk to us – they read our dreams!
Our reasons for LOVING Wildfox :
Their t-shirts always relate to our life and are funny with guarantees to make you happy 🙂
Yeah ….. this is awkward
You can wear them to literally ANY event – even a wedding (and we have!)
Wildfox has a t-shirt for that. They have a crazy imagination. Whether you’re getting married, hungover, or love camping etc, they have something that you can instantly relate to. A top that’ll cheer you up every time you wear it! Worth it.
If you’re a sucker for nostalgia (like us!) then Wildfox reads your mind – they are psychic honestly!! The whole line is based off intangible things: friendship, good times, and good memories. We live for so many of their sayings.
Quality – Their fabrics are softer than anything you’ll ever touch.
Have you ever felt their beach jumpers? Just WOW!
Yes, we agree that their product is on the pricey side. But you will have no regrets here for the quality and comfort. Everything is made in the US from the most comfy blends & its all ethical fashion – check out our previous blog.
You pay for a product that will become a staple in your wardrobe faster than you’d ever believe.
Something you’ll want to LIVE in as soon as you put it on.
To sum it all up – Wildfox is more than a brand, it’s a lifestyle.
The slogans, words, and dreams that are us.
That is why we heart Wildfox.
You can wear wildfox clothing and make whatever statement you want!
Do you own any wildfox? if so we want to hear about it below xxxx
The Only Way is Designer.
When you want to treat yourself to some new clothes, the temptation is to go to the likes of Primark and spend £5-10 on a new top!
Well we want to change that by giving you our 5 reasons to buy designer luxury, brands like wildfox, the laundry room and chaser brand – and here’s why……
1 : Designer Tees are Ethically Made!
This is our main reason for investing into a luxury tee.
Jerseys & knits, are very easy to make. The design is simple, the fabric is very easy to manage on a sewing machine and it literally takes seconds to sew. Did you know that tshirts are one of the cheapest items, to buy because they are also the cheapest to produce! Most t-shirts that cost under £20.00 are either made in mass quantities overseas, where there is little or no regulation, big fabric waste and in some cases by labourers, who are not being paid fairly and even children.
Look for American made brands like Wildfox or The Laundry Room. These brands are all made in the USA. Or even smaller brands like The Ragged Priest – all made in house in the UK, by a small team. So you are supporting local businesses, and real people – who believe in their product.
2. Better fabrics change the game:
Better fabrics, like modal, terry or organic cottons take the design and fit to a whole new level. We absolutely love the unique and special prints and fabrics used by the likes of Lauren Moshi and Wildfox.
But if terry t-shirts are not your thing, look out for organic cottons. The industrialized cotton industry has high rates of suicide in India and cancers in farmers inside the US. Shopping for organic cotton not only helps smaller farmers, it’s also better for our body.
This Laundry Room Tee has a speciality knit fabric
3. Better Design:
Fast fashion companies knock off designs within minutes of hitting the shelves sometimes bluntly stealing work from fashion designers. Buying from companies like Primark , has a strong impact in the fashion industry: those companies force the industry to work faster leaving no time for the incubation of ideas.
By shopping for luxury tees you are not only paying for a simple t-shirt, you are breeding creativity from design to photos, lots of people are getting paid by you! You are supporting small brands like Ragged Priest – in house designed and made, something they are very proud of. And the Laundry Room – a family company who do everything in house.
Just look at Wildfox, Laundry Room and The Ragged Priest, you will see that their designs are not only more exclusive, they’re also much more unique. Do you really want to look like everyone else? Or be an individual.
4. T-Shirts are everyday pieces:
We wear a t-shirt pretty much every day! We see them as investment pieces, as they are super versatile you can dress up and dress down. When you invest in a luxury t-shirt, you know you will be wearing it for years.
For example a Lauren Moshi t-shirt costs over £50.00, but since I will be using it many times over a long period, the cost of wearing that t-shirt is about £0.00! While a t-shirt you buy from Primark – which we hold our hands up, we have done, usually can only be worn once or twice, they dont wash well or keep their shape and they bobble real quick.
5. A more fashionable wardrobe!
Anyone who loves their fashion, know where to spend their money and a survey taken shows that most agree basics should be the most expensive pieces in your wardrobe – because these are worn most!
These pieces should be affordable enough for you not to go broke, but expensive enough that they seem like a treat to buy. The great thing also with investing into a luxury tee, is that you can mix them up with other pieces.
Lauren Moshi tees are all hand designed and hand printed in LA, but a family. They make the nicest, unique designs and they tees literally hang off your body like a glove. The fabric lasts forever and its great for mixing up with other garments.
Hopefully this has convinced you to invest your hard earned cash into more luxury garments.

Wildfox Grand Canyon Tee : Hot Blogger Pick
Rainbow haired fashion blogger, Stephi LaReine wears our Wildfox Tee in her latest blog post.
In her own words, Stephi says
“So todays outfit was mainly influenced by a lot of music I’m listening to, Lana Del Rey is back in my playlist and therefore in my wardrobe all over again. So let’s think pink heart shaped sunglasses, urban trainers, and ripped denim. My tasseled t-shirt is Wildfox from Spoiled Brat, they always seem to include all my favourite pieces that personify summer. It’s got me a few clicks away from booking my own road trip to the states, that’s how influenced I feel by their collection. “
