Finally, we got around to putting up the pictures from our SUMMER SAMPLE SALE on 22nd July, with fellow designers –

BLAKE LDN (knitwear)
YOLKE (womenswear)
LEIVANKASH (jewellery)
POPS (champagne popsicles)

It was a beautiful summer’s day & along with the sun, we had a brilliant turnout of customers that came all the way down to Kings Road, to shop &  have some delicious Champagne popsicles.

To everyone that came – thank you! It was such a wonderful day & because of the positive response, we are already planning another in the same location for you in November.
In the meantime here are a few photos from the day – oh wouldn’t it be nice if the sun was still shining like that!?

Come on English summer – don’t do this to us!

• How to wear – the RUMI dress •

One sunny day last week I asked my mother to style the RUMI dress in two different ways and for me to shoot her. She took up the challenge and then some. The RUMI dress is named after her, so this was a way for me to dedicate a post to her. Here we walked to the beautiful flower stand on Fulham Road (arguably the best flower stand in London), where she bought flowers and wore the dress elegantly cinched at the waist. A man walked past, stared and said “WOW” twice  – this was a good sign.

For the second look she wanted to go for a more casual feel with the dress loose,  a pair of slip-on kicks & our silk TRUCKER CAP. This second look looks cool and super effortless. Which do you prefer?
