Peter Pan

I am so pleased that the influential and oh so chic 60's Peter Pan collar has made a comeback this season and without question Topshop has translated this trend brilliantly....

More Missoni

For a current illustration project, I am to produce an illustrated look book based on a designers S/S011 collection. The fashion house I will be using is Missoni as I am drawn to the flamboyant patterns and vibrant colour pallette, which is consistant throughout the collection. Here are a few photographs which I may take inspiration from for my final outcome.

New things

I fell in love with this vintage style floral vanity case and at a reasonable price of £30, I had to invest! 
Please excuse the poor quality phone snaps.....
Isn't it pretty....

This shabby chic, heart-shaped, keep safe box is a present i was recently  given... 

                       And finally, my most recent fashion investment.. A sheer cream military style blouse bought from Topshop at £32. 

Again, sorry about the poor quality!


A Fashion house which prides itself on combining heritage with true unique style, Missoni's take on spring/summer 011 is loud, vibrant, psychedelic and original. Heavily inspired by folk art and pattern, the collection is a fusion of acidic colours and tribal shapes. An array of fabrics and textures, the catwalk was overflowing with Smocks, tunics, Kaftans and Kimonos, which gave the collection a firm Mexican flamboyance and a two-dimensional flatness. The accessories were a credit to the collection, in particular the low-heeled sandals with bright neon block heels and ribbon straps.

I have to admit, after months of eager anticipation over the relaunch of the iconic 60's fashion brand 'Biba', I cant help but feel a little let down by the averageness of the collection. Fronted by model-of-the-moment Daisy Lowe, i expected the range to capture the essence and ethos of the original Biba but in a fresh and fashion foward way, however i feel the collection definitely lacks the 'wow' factor i was hoping for. On the plus side, the relaunch was marketed well and i do think the brand has huge potential.
