This Summer is all about colour; from 70s inspired tees, to swimsuits, bags, jumpers, dresses, even technicolour hair, fashion is unashamedly going over the rainbow. I mean why wear one colour when you can wear all the colours of the rainbow?
We teamed up with Swarovski and some of the hottest bloggers on the scene to show you how to wear 10 of autumns biggest trends. Tamara Kalinic, Maja Malnar and Diipa Khosla joined us in our Notting Hill store and helped us choose the perfect Swaorvski crystal jewellery to pair with the looks.
‘Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.’ William Morris
I grew up surrounded by William Morris prints, my childhood house had William Morris curtains, cushion covers, chairs and just lengths of fabric waiting to be sewn up.
A great admirer of his prints I made a trek some years back to North East London’s Walthamstow, the most unlikely of locations it seemed to me at the time, to house such a gallery. As it transpires, this used to be William Morris’s family home from 1848-1856.
An invitation to eat at Raymond Blanc’s ‘Le Manoir aux Quat’Saison’ is not one to be taken lightly, and most definitely not one for refusing. So when my mother told me that on her list of ‘things to do’ she still had to eat at Le Manoir, I obliged and very quickly. I made the booking some 3 months ahead and was mentally counting down the days.
