Your Coffee Break

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to catch up with the lovely Rosa and Charlotte from Your Coffee Break a very cool lifestyle site that includes fashion, beauty, dining, celebrities, career advice and travel. It's the perfect online magazine to immerse yourself in, over a cup of tea on a cosy evening.   

Although my visit to the girls was very fleeting as we were getting ready to exhibit our SS14 collection in NY, it was nice to put lovely faces to names. While I was away the girls were regulars on the FROW at LFW and wore pieces from our AW13 collection and looked gorgeous! 

Charlotte wears Faded Nostalgia Dress in teal velvet and Wistful Thoughts Dress in printed silk.

NY, NY I couldn't love you more.....

Out of all the cities we will visit in a lifetime, some stain the memory indelibly. New York is one of these cities. There is no other place that makes one feel as inspired or alive as the city that never sleeps. For this reason, NY seems like the fitting place to show the new collection - SS14 The Effect of Butterflies.  
We arrived in Williamsburg, Brooklyn late Saturday night and set off to explore our neighbourhood! We didn't have too walk far to find "Station" a cool yet elegant outdoor restaurant which is famous for its delightful array of ingredients on sourdough toast like Ricotta, Blood Orange,‎‎ Basil & Apricot Marmalade. Washed down with a few glasses of thick, rich Malbec, we had an early night ready to show at Capsule over the next few days.
Showing at Capsule was a first for us and something we hope to continue to get our brand into the US market It was amazing to hear first hand feedback from buyers and to meet retailers from the Middle East, Asia and the US that we would have never normally had the opportunity to connect with.  

But a work trip to NY wouldn't be complete without giving ourselves a few days after Capsule to further explore a city that we both love so much. The restaurant scene is second to none and every place we visited we loved - for a hearty lunch of meatballs in sweet brioche and refreshing peach sangria, Shelter for delicious pizza and beer and for cocktails and fancy dishes for our final night were our favourites.  

I also got to visit the most beautiful boutique that we stock our AW13 collection in, Gabriela De La Vega & spent some time with Gabriela herself who is an amazing jewellery designer as well as the ower of the store.   

Catching up with long lost friends, shopping in the vintage stores in Brooklyn, visiting Catbird for gorgeous jewels, picnicking in Central Park and riding our bikes into the centre of Manhattan + over the Brooklyn Bridge were other highlights of a lovely holiday (with a little work thrown in!)  

See you again soon NYC!!!  

Introducing SS14 The Effect of Butterflies

He was a collector. Not necessarily of all things beautiful, just objects of interest that came his way. Things that made an impression on him and made him think of days gone by.

He was good with his hands. He would collect these pieces and recreate something magical – sometimes for others, mostly for her. Whittling away the hours, he would think of nothing but their past together.
It started so long ago when he would gather little trinkets on their travels to remind himself that he was so full of life.....
His house was full of these collectables now. Delicate butterfly’s pinned to boards in vibrant blues and pinks, vivid red silks and Italian laces from trips to exotic lands, yellow wild flowers looped together in bunches and tribal jewellery she’d once worn with pride.  
The butterflies were what he treasured most though. He had found the carcass of a butterfly once that had wings so dry, it turned to dust upon his touch. Right there in his hands until the smudge of colour was just that and nothing more.

That single moment defined his love for her. She was a butterfly; a free spirit, beautiful, full of life. And he knew from then on, the effect she had on him would define his very being......
