Grab your bustles, because we're headed back to 18th Century! Throughout the 18th Century, prints were not just inspired by the French culture but began to expand to include more Asiatic regions, such as India. This week, we're getting inspired by an evolutionary time in history where classic, opulent style moved from focusing just on what they knew to exploring the world in order to broaden cultural influence in print design. Through the decadence and the opulence, this collection is all about a modern twist on old world prints and regality!

Some say that pink and green should never be seen, but we think the opposite! Very popular with tropical imagery, pink and green are a combination that we are loving at the moment. Creating an imbalance between each amount of colour, is a great way to pair them without becoming overwhelming. When using a strong green ground, make sure to compliment with a soft, subtle pink feature and so on.

Sometimes, less is more - that has certainly been our mantra for this week's collection. We're obsessing with all things faint and dardly noticeable in the studio. Having anything 'barely there', doesn't have to mean that it can't still be a statement! It's all about creating a motif that is a similar colour to it's ground or printing the design onto a soft and semi-transparent fabric, such as an organza, that way the print is more discrete. Our break from bold prints has taught us how stunning and exciting, more subtle prints can be!

Pack away your colourful gouaches, watercolour and inks because this week is focusing on all things black and white! We're keeping it old school and working only with shades of black and white to create illustrative work that purely focuses on raw technique and fine tunes our love of silhouette, details and intricacy. When working only with a monochrome palette, it allows the work to take on a life of it's own without the leverage that colour brings. Don't get us wrong, we LOVE colour but our latest collection will be focusing on bringing attention to the classic, good-old way of illustration. 'Hue' knew it could be so much fun?!
