It's been raining

It was raining all day yesterday even though it's summer where I live ... so this got me thinking about the need for a pretty umbrella. I discovered this great range of boutique umbrella's from Australian brand Gina & May featuring vibrant colours and patterns. Why not add a burst of pretty pattern to a rainy can view the entire range here.

Fashion Friday - Louise Gray Fall 2011 Collection

Fun Fun Fun! That’s what came to mind when I saw images of Louise Gray’s Fall 2011 Collection at London Fashion Week. This collection entitled “Up Your Look” is an explosion of colour, prints and patterns – all my favourite things in one! I also loved the accessories (particularly the patterned boots). Gray layered pixelated and enlarged plaid patterns on mohair and overprinted bright checkered patterns onto classic wool tartans. Enjoy this fab collection and enjoy a fab weekend – see you next week!

Jonathon Saunders - Fall Collection 2011

As London Fashion Week continues on I thought today we would take a look at the Fall 2011 collection from Jonathon Saunders. This was another of the collections that had a strong emphasis on colour and also on prints patterns! The label drew inspiration from photographer Paul Outerbridge and his graphic juxtapositions. This collection was heavy on the geometric patterns and also on the flora and fauna inspired patterns. While mainly a womenswear show, Jonathon also showed a few pieces from his menswear collection. View the entire collection on the website.
