We have been totally inspired for Spring Summer 2018, by all the fresh, bright feminine colours that have recently appeared at the fashion catwalk shows & the home interior trend sites.  That’s not so say there isn’t something for the boys.. quite the opposite! SS18 will see key menswear brands taking on light pinks, pale turquoise & florals in a big way .. introducing much awaited colour & pattern to an otherwise beige & blue check wardrobe – that most men inhabit!

 

Pink Pink.. to make the girls & boys wink!  Named in the 17th Century after a flower called Pink, this rosey colour is both graceful & elegant. Until the 1940’s pink was considered a colour for boys, as being part of the red family, it was considered a more masculine & decisive colour! Oh how times have come full circle again!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our SS18 Pinks combine soft shades of Blush, Coral & Rose Pink, with a generous splash of gold for that all important decadent finish! Matching pink foils & glitters  create excitement & sparkle.  Pink Marble, Blush Flamingoes, delicate Rose Floral Hearts, look out for our new foiled ‘Messages of Love‘ for Mothers Day.. perfect for popping onto a gift bag or a much deserved bouquet of flowers.. and then hanging somewhere special to be admired!  Lets hope 2018 will be a very pink year for us all … a year full of love!

Aqua Splash !!   Fresh & Feminine, this wonderful combo of Pistachio, Mint & Aqua has an elegant & optimistic feel. Look out for our new ‘Mermaids’ & wide stripe ‘Little Treat’ design. Our new folding Handbag Gift Boxes  are perfect for small gifts & new heart shaped Thank You Notes.. a lovely way to  show your love & appreciation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Coastal Blues ..? not here we’re buoyant!   All aboard with our Coastal Blues, as waves & fishes are a huge influence to homewares & gifting this season.  Soft Chambray, rich Navy and a small dash of Olive, makes for a wonderful Summer cocktail of colours.. very chic!  From ‘Hip Hip Hooray’ ships bunting, to ‘Surf Boards’ &  shiny little ‘Gold Fish’, there is definitely a glamorous water theme on the horizon this Summer.. Not to mention a little something for Father’s Day too! Check out our matching Luggage Tags & Jute twines.. for added texture & colour pop.

Did you know that in Roman times, if a women wore blue  it was said to be a sign of easy virtue & on men an effeminate trait… Don’t you just love those Romans!!
