“Blink” Colour Palettes: Spring Sorbets from Prada

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

We spotted these looks from Prada‘s pre-Spring collection in their Bond Street windows just the other day. How gorgeous that colour palette? Well, its so gorgeous we had to have a go at pantone matching it for you. Our first colour palette post for some time, but worth the wait, wouldn’t you agree?

We then spotted the same gorgeous cardigan on the amazing Lana del Rey in the forth issue of Wonderland magazine. Looking good, Lana.

We’re at the next stage of the inaugural H&M Design Award. Here’s our first post on this, so you catch up if you missed out!

“Blink” retail: Fabergé

Friday, January 27th, 2012

The Fabergé store opened on Grafton Street in November last year, and we have wondered past on many occasions, heading to Dover Street Market and Acne for a fashion fix. Last week, we stopped to have a closer look in the tiny windows of this very purple shop, and we were amazed by the gorgeous displays. Not only were all of the diamonds completely dazzling, it was also the way that the jewellery had been displayed that caught our eye. Don’t you just love all of the stunning, vintage looking dolls house furniture and props that they have used? Oh, and that bracelet in the middle shot. Those are the kind of mini eggs we’d like to get this Easter…
