CK Spot Leather Bag from their beautiful new leather range
Prints, prints and more prints!
The weather man has just informed me that ‘Winter is Back’. This is not cool. Working in fashion makes the proceeding season even more tantalising as the promise of new clothes and styling ideas tug your tired, boring old sleeve. Someone, therefore, telling me I must regress into my faux fur and layers really gets my goat. (My spoilt, fashion goat.) So, to cheer myself up, I’m going to dream of festivals and picnics with the photos I took at the Cath Kidston press day back when it was even more goddamn cold and the idea of spring seemed equally preposterous. Take a look at the Cath Kidston Lookbook for some real summer fete day dreaming. Maybe, if you treat yourself to something spotty, then spring might just hurry the hell up as a result..?!
Whilst I don’t normally post about new season collections, this presentation really blew me away with the excellent visual merchandising (which I later found out was concieved by my VM colleagues at Liberty, now that makes sense!) I just adored the whitewashed objects collected into stories using frames either huge on the floor or suspended from the ceiling to form a little mise-en-scene. It looked as if the person in the kitchen or playroom had just been photoshopped out mid action shot!
The display was themed around Cath Kidstons archive and print processes. Giant silk screens ready to have paint and squeegie action applied to them and fabric swatches on the walls, it was all wonderfully creative and fresh. Genius! For more summery inspo, a look at Kristabels post when she was lucky enough to go to a festival last summer with CK!
