Hold it, have we seen this before? The designer is Danish. And there are stars. No, it's not a deja vu, it's Maria Black. And there the parallels with our other starry, Scandi jewellery ends. Because where Pernille Corydon is delicate and pretty in a really straightforward way, Maria Black is your slightly cooler, less conventional sister. The stars are a bit chunkier and the shapes a bit sharper. And to seal our approval, pieces are known to have been worn by some super cool sisters including Coco Sumner, Zoe Kravitz and Scarlett Johansson.
Here we are surrounded by all that is light and bright, starting to contemplate sun drenched summer days, and along comes MIH Pre AW13 with a subtle yet well versed reminder of what the months ahead have in store. Our oversized cotton shirts are billowing in a stiff onshore breeze, so we're pulling on a star covered Breton top for some effortless extra cover, and chugging out to sea in a chunky yet elegant fisherman's knit. All the time co-ordinating with the flat grey skies, sweeping white sands and moody blue seas. Not so bad after all, with these pieces coming to our resuce.
Menswear is in full favour of neckwear for summer. Not the compulsory sort but the everyday, laidback and stylish sort. Japanese utility fabrics from The Hill-Side go head to head with rare vintage textiles crafted by General Knot & Co. Chambray, florals, stripes and some school teacher plaid, modelled to perfection here by our very own Richard Humby, who spent a good hour working on his bow tie technique.
Rolling out a series of swanky numbers pulled from the archives, Moscot has us all sun worshipping with their latest collection. These are the sunglasses we imagine wearing back in Hollywood's most glamour filled days. Bigger and bolder than ever. Perfect for the camera-shy starlet to hide behind. Duchess is well worthy of a curtsy with her elegant proportions. Victoria opts for a full on butterfly-shaped glamour offensive, inspired by Sophia Loren. While Carrington has us all in a spin over her perfect circles.
The sun might not shine, but what do we care. This summer is going to be so much fun. Fun like the summers of your childhood. Water pistols, sheriff badges, sparking spinners, gumball machines, polce whistles, sherbet bottles, chattering teeth and paper lazers; our project corner is dedicated to all things sweet and silly. Time to raid the piggy bank...
You wouldn't expect anything less from party planning dream team Lucy and Lindsey. Posies of pink carnations and sprigs of rosemary. Rickety garden chairs and vintage votives. Potted prawns and rhubarb meringue. Even a mighty fine Victoria sponge baked by Rob. Yes, womenswear's grand marble table played host to a surprise dinner party fit for a very special person indeed. Our gorgeous Olivia, off to study law no less, to whom we wish only the very very best.
Sarah Moore tagged her flag to a vintage pole many moons ago. Here amid the gorgeous pages of her new book Vintage Home we find words of wisdom, practical project ideas and plenty of inspiration. From tips on rummaging at markets and painting floorboards to lampshades four ways and make your own linen water, this is the book you need to achieve all vintage things - from cunning and thrify finishing touches to complete room by room overhauls.
