Two extremes: Winter Destinations

Two extremes: Winter Destinations

Winter has now arrived in the UK, with Christmas markets taking centre stage, shops busy with present buying and festive lights all around the city. It’s the most wonderful time of the year … when eyebrow raising festive jumpers become acceptable and mulled wine is flowing freely. It is that one time of year when you can take a long vacation and really relax. But as wonderful as home is right now, sometimes there is something exciting and fulfilling about being abroad for Christmas and discovering a new place and traditions and people. It can be just what is needed to breathe new life and energy to start a new year.  What if New Year wasn’t so much about a ‘new you’, as a new more travelled and experienced you? Does skipping the cold winter blues and heading to one of the warmest destinations in the world sound appealing? Or are you more of a winter bunny? To help you plan your winter holidays, here are some suggestions for the hottest and coldest places on Earth to spend Christmas!

Behind the seams | Autumn Winter ’17

Behind the seams | Autumn Winter ’17

Our autumn collection is inspired by the Japanese view of life, in particular the art of Wabi Sabi. Through embracing a simple, uncluttered aesthetic, we’ve concentrated on paring back inessentials and finding beauty in imperfections. We are abandoning the perfect and celebrating authentic craftsmanship whilst appreciating the beauty of natural objects. The Wabi Sabi way of life favours authenticity over perfection and the natural and organic over clinical and symmetrical. This appreciation of fragile and incomplete things that do not adhere to our preconceived idea of beauty is something that is at the forefront of  our designs in this collection.   In the first part of the season  we have created pieces with raw edged seams, asymmetric and unfinished hems. Layered textures and unique silhouettes are supported by a palette of blush and natural tones of dusty pink and stone.   Towards the end of the season, there is a harmony between nature and design with a palette of rich tones of forest green and deep charcoal. Intarsia prints in scattered designs inspired by Raku ceramics give character, touch and feel. Keep tuned for our new season styles, coming soon! Shop our summer collection here.
