Did somebody say 20% off?

 Your eyes don't deceive you. Today and tomorrow (27th and 28th September) we are giving you 20% off selected lines for two days only! This discount runs through all our UK standalone stores and in House of Fraser and Elys concessions. Here's a selection of the styles that could be yours - just in time for the weekend: 
Hide Dress: now £68
The Hide Dress is the perfect transitional number - the shape is suits bare legs but the colour is dark enough that it looks chic with opaque tights and block heels too. Throw on a chunky knit or leather biker jacket to toughen up the look. Also on offer for womenswear is the laddered Foreign Sweat. This is the jumper that just keeps giving - wear with shorts, skinnies, skirts, tights, over shirts, under jackets... it works every which way. The Skin Dress is a twist on the classic LBD and will see you right through to 2013 for parties and nights out. A casual tee is a must have, and we love the The End tee. It's a subtle statement, plus the scoop neck and cap sleeves give it a feminine edge. 
Foreign Sweat: now £40

Skin Dress: now £44

The End Tee: now £24

Wish You Were Here Tee: now £28
  And for the guys - we know how you all feel about our tees. We've got a selection of styles for you to shop from in the 20% off sale in scoop neck, crew neck, v neck, raw cut, polo tops, graphic prints, block colors, with pocket embellishments... the list goes on. All these look spot on with skinny jeans but for a more dressed down look, try with the Smoker Pants, now £60. 
Smoker Pants: now £60

Monk Tee: now £28
Block Print Polo: now £36

This discount runs throughout our standalone stores (Shoreditch, Brick Lane and Portobello Road), House of Fraser concessions (London, Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham, Huddersfield and Glasgow) and Elys (Wimbledon).

Caroline Flack wears Religion

Xtra Factor host, notorious cougar and the girl with a seriously enviable wardrobe: Caroline Flack was spotted wearing our Wallace shirt during an appearance on This Morning... yesterday morning.

Caroline's take on double denim was a girlie twist on the trend, matching our shirt with peach jeans and a khaki trench.

Autumnal Outerwear

The air is getting fresh and this week we're all about transitional outerwear that can be thrown over light layers now, and wrapped up with knitwear for winter. For women; wear with statement trousers, and for men; wear with bold monochrome.

It's time to give up clinging to the last remnants of summer and embrace the falling leaves. Getting wrapped up for winter in the whole hat-gloves-scarf winter kit can be a tricky look to pull off, but the key is head turning outerwear. Or ideally, transitional head turning outerwear that can work through autumn too.

The Protective Jacket in Brindle, featuring deep pockets and a waterfall front is super flattering (check: tailored shoulders and hip-skimming silhouette). Looks best when worn with skinny trousers and chunky heels; try the Glamrock Jeans which are a jean/trouser/legging all in one in a hand illustrated print.

For a darker alternative, our Serpent Jacket has a step hem and high collar which can also be opened out into a dramatic lapel. The tie-it-yourself belt means you can tighten it up and fix with an individual knot, or leave it open and show off your outfit underneath. We recommend: Killing Trousers with foil strokes. Finish with a splash of colour or bright white.

For menswear, autumnal outerwear is all about keeping it casual and mixing relaxed textures with your coat. Denim, knits and jersey layer under these styles, or keep it simple with a classic tee.

The Inferno Parka is simple, casual and has a hint of Mancunian style about it. Looks great with chunky knits and monochrome, or dressed down with a simple tee, like this Grove tee with pointed hem.

The contrasting colours on the Vixen Jacket, elasticated hem and rounded collar make for a tonal piece which is great as-is and done up, or worn open with a denim Blake Shirt underneath. Either way, you're on to a winner with this autumnal piece.

All Religion Autumn Winter 2012 can be found in our stores or a selection of online stockists including Serene Order.

The Model Search Has Begun

Last week, our nationwide Model Search with Premier Model Management and House of Fraser kicked off in London, on Vogue's Fashion's Night Out.

We're scouting around the country to find two models to front our Autumn Winter 2013 campaign. They will also win a year contract with Premier Model Management and an £800 Religion shopping spree.

The gorgeous Fiona Jane DJ'd on the Religion concession and entertained the happy shoppers on the women's floor. She's looking superfly in our Wolf Sweat and Union Jack shorts. Clashing prints? We approve.

Premier scouts were on the hunt for the next face of Religion for the evening, looking for both guys and girls. Here are a few of their finds:

 Striking a pose in the Erotica Dress

Not only is this potential model a beauty, but also a Paralympian! The Premier guys had no idea when they scouted her but then it turned out they had an Icelandic Paralympian in their lense. Take a look at her athlete's profile here.

This potential model wore our Iron Shirt with dungarees and green kicks.

Read more about the Model Search here - the scouts are going to be all over the country but if you can't make it to an event, you can apply online.

Religion in Las Vegas

Here in East London on a cloudy afternoon we love to see reminders that Religion is going strong all over the world. Have a look at the newly merchandised windows of DNA 2050 in Las Vegas showing off the best of Religion AW12.

We know what you're thinking. Not only 'I wish I was in Las Vegas right now!' but also 'That wolf print is INSANE!'. Turns out it looks pretty cool on a jumper too. Buy in store or online at Serene Order.

Religion for Life

We love Religion. But of course we do - we ARE Religion. So what excuse do these fans have? They've gone the extra mile to show their love for us, and it's damn impressive. Religion tattoos: what would you get? 

Our Berlin agent shows off his new addition - our Praying Skeleton.

This American fan dedicated his whole shoulder to Religion.

This fan had one of our tee designs tattooed on his back. That's love with a capital L.
