This includes a gold mini skirt (pictured above), as well as a tailored dress with cap sleeves and a hem that hits just below the knee in the same fabric. If you remember last season’s popular tweed dress, it is similar to that in cut. Lastly is a beautiful sleeveless black cotton pique dress.
We are truly delighted to be introducing Klaus Haapaniemi’s fine textile designs here at the shop. Artist Klaus Haapaniemi and designer Mia Wallenius founded their design studio together in 2010, in London.
Klaus is a talented illustrator who has designed everything from prints for Clements Ribeiro, Cacharel, and Marimekko, to ceramics for Iittala, to book covers for Penguin. His partner Mia is a creative designer and has worked as Senior Art Director for Gucci Group. Together, their studio produces the most beautiful scarves, throws, and pillows. Their approach is self-described as “influenced by nature, Finnish folklore, fantasy and traditional decorative arts with a modern twist.”
We hope you are as taken with their work as we are!
We are excited to announce the Spring Summer collection called “Zou Zou”, from Wouters and Hendrix. As always, the selection includes beautiful tiny drop and stud earrings (which are known to sell quickly!) New themes and materials are explored this season, including black and white checkerboard cubes.
They are so so beautiful!
In between posts about our new spring arrivals, I just had to mention a classic piece by our favourite goldsmith, Jane Hollinger. Years ago she designed the mini heart shaped necklace as a gift for her sister, and it has gone on to be a classic in her collection. The heart is moveable (rotates freely from upright – see above, to sideways – my fave! As seen below on the bracelet). Even self-proclaimed non-necklace person, Grace of Design Sponge, is a fan!
A great gift for yourself, your daughter, sister, or anyone else you heart.
Our first Spring delivery from Alexandra Verschueren has arrived! Beautiful cotton shirts, a cotton/silk blend shirt dress (above), denim trousers and dress, make up her Spring Summer 2014 collection entitled “Pulse”. All made in Japan, her pieces are understated, beautifully made, and great for everyday.
When Alexandra won the L’Oréal Professional Grand Prize at the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography in 2010, the jury included Maria Cornejo and Dries Van Noten. In this short video, see what Dries Van Noten has to say about Alexandra’s work: http://vimeo.com/11473784
Pictured here are selected images from the collection. See in-store for more styles.
