Happy Mondays

Who said that Monday mornings had to be glum?

... This image just proves that the mundane can always be injected with glamour - give me road signs mixed in with handbags & gladrags any day! x

Attic Relics

... Wondering down Redchurch Street in London's edgy Shoreditch district - I didn't expect to find such a treasure trove of pattern, colour and kooky motifs stashed away in an inconspicuous black building - known only for its random art exhibitions.

Housing the works of Gavin Bennett: a multimedia artist who uses dis-used objects which can only be described as satirical statements based upon society's consumer habits. The collaboration between Eley Kishmoto's AW 11/12 collection and the controversial art works in and around the space only added to the concept of their exciting new collection...

From bats to digital floral prints; stripy knits are combined with more vintage inspired pieces which are updated with loud, unexpected colour combinations. To sum up: 'Attic Fantastic' is simply a playful collection of randomness... just how I like it! x

Bold is beautiful

Ok - Summer (or, come to think of it - Spring) might not be upon us just yet but just as London Fashion Week confirmed - colour is bold & brash for SS11 & if this beautiful floral design has anything to go by; vivid hues are set to make a statement in every area of design...

From colour blocking to texture stacking - this unconventional marriage of multi-seasonal flowers sums up the word 'eclectic' just wonderfully.x
