Whistles Muse: Bjork. When she burst onto the UK pop scene with her cover of ‘It’s Oh So Quiet’ in 1995, the Icelandic singer favoured cropped fluffy jumpers, satin mini-dresses and shrunken tee’s, her own sugary take on casual 90s dressing.
As her career progressed, so did her exploration into conceptual dressing and her wardrobe became a mash-up of colour, texture and cultural references. The ‘Swan Dress’, designed by Marjan Pejoski, is perhaps Bjork’s most memorable look to date. In 2001, the singer famously mimicked laying an egg on the red carpet before entering the Academy Awards and performing ‘Ive Seen it All’, a duet she co-produced with Radiohead’s Thom Yorke. For an ultra wearable take on Bjork’s idiosyncratic style, couple dramatic texture with a palette of bright white and powdery pastels.
Our Montaniita Tassel Culottes will work well paired with the Linen Split Hem T-shirt. Don’t miss the newly released Spring and Summer issue of The Gentlewoman, which features Bjork as it’s cover star. Whistles - Whistles Muse: Winona Ryder. Although she has been in the spotlight for almost 3 decades, Winona Ryder retains an air of mystery more in line with old Hollywood stars than current paparazzi baiting celebrities.
From goth heroine and teen prodigy to the ultimate 90s Gen X poster girl, Ryder continues to intrigue audiences with her talent and gamin looks. With her latest movie The Iceman in cinemas nationwide, we take a look at her style. The elfin actress has evolved dramatically since her uber casual looks of the 90s – all mum jeans, band tees and printed bias cut dresses. Whistles launches in US with Bloomingdale's.

Jane Shepherdson, chief executive at women's wear retailer Whistles has revealed plans to open more than 30 stores overseas during the next 5 years.
She hinted that a possible IPO or private stock sale may occur sometime in the near future to fund the brands store expansion during an interview with the Telegraph, in which she backed calls by Business Secretary Vince Cable to demand quotas for women on FTSE 100 company boards and examine all women-shortlists. Since Shepherdson left her former role as Brand Director at Topshop and joined the company back in 2008, she has managed to redirect the brands focus and lifted it into the higher end of the fashion spectrum. Now that the company has a number of UK stand alone stores as well as concessions in department stores such as Harrods, Harvey Nichols and John Lewis, Whistles is examining the possibilities of expanding overseas and opening its first stand alone stores.

How Whistles Reemerged as One of the Most Exciting Contemporary Brands in Fashion. 2008 was not an easy year for many in the fashion industry -- least of all, perhaps, for Jane Shepherdson.

Whistles conquers the 'middle market' of British womenswear.

Whistles, the clothing brand set up by Lucille Lewin in the 1980s, announced this week that it had bought back the majority of its shares from the Icelandic government, a move which has underlined its growing strength. Whistles, which has been independent since parting ways with the retail group Mosaic in 2008, has gone from strength to strength despite a tough economic climate.
Sales were up 13% in 2011 and there was "consistent double digit like for like sales growth," this year, according to a company statement. Whistles x Frame: meet the women behind our campaign.
