AW12 has landed... and its going to be a hoot!

Received my People Tree AW12 lookbook today and i'm very excited to see they've done another fantastic collaboration with the surface pattern design legend that is Orla Kiely!
I've already succumbed to the 50s style Squirel print frock...

...but the Owl print by Orla Kiely is just too  awesome to pass up!

Flicking through some of my fav retailers, I'm definitly feeling a British animal trend emerging... check out the Joules new homewears section for some grown up Pony love.

Marimekko seem to be leading this theme with their 'Off to the woods' AW12 range, check out their AW12 lookbook here:

Thinking all things woodland animal inspired, last winter I found the fab knitwear designer Kate Davies! She is the creator of the beautiful knitwear pattern "O w l s" 

 ......Kate if your reading,  I dig your work, but still haven't finished knitting my sweater... help!!!

Have an awesome day y'all,



Sneaky peek - Fishy Dishy

Hello :-)

Here's a little sneaky peek at Love This Show's new 'Fishy Dishy' design range, part of a larger set of homewear, including glasses and cups (and MUGS too enabling a good brew)

 Keep your peepers peeled for more news.

Have a great weekend :-)

Around the Corner - Blaqua

Good day fellow Pattern Lovers :-)

Some amazing shirts and patterns in Blaqua on Newburgh Street, London. 

I've been searching for information on the designers with no luck but that doesn't stop us loving these masterpieces. Once you visit the website you will see that we're not alone. Aparently the modfather himself has graced the wooden floorboards of Blaqua! Yes! Have a look yourself  at some of the wonderful patterns and clothing that adorn the rails.

This, of course, inspired a listening to Paul Weller and also the discovery that you can embed Spotify on your blog/website..... :-)

Have a great elevenses.
