Bailey’s Got Soul

We fell even deeper in love with Burberry Prorsum’s “Bloomsbury Girls” Autumn/Winter 2014 collection at a Sotheby’s private exhibition recently, where Christopher Bailey’s dreamy creations were shown among Brian Ferry’s personal collection of Bloomsbury art. The hand-painted brushstroke shapes and patterns on the bags, shoes and ethereal dresses were all inspired by Charleston, the country home of artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, where they painted enchanting murals and shapes across the walls, mantles, doors and their canvases. Bailey’s vision for this collection was to be “Soulful” – by far this is one of the most moving fashion collections we’ve seen lately…already set a date to visit Charleston and the Burberry store. Feeling truly inspired!

Swan Somethings

After a recent weekend away in the English countryside where our house looked out onto a lake full of black and white swans, the fascination with these beautiful creatures lead to the discovery that they symbolise an abundance of positivity: Love, Balance, Beauty, Grace, Peace, Tranquility, Longevity and are even thought to be a good omen – bringing wealth and prestige when you stumble upon them.  It’s not a surprise considering no matter how often you catch a glimpse of one, they still manage to strike you with their elegance and beauty.  In honour of the majestic bird, this post is dedicated to all things swan inspired…
