We're going full vintage! For our week of Toile De Jouy, we are looking at the counterbalance of hyper-fashion prints and vintage toile designs with a modern twist. There is a play of subtle oppositions made even more evident by the use of black and white. Let's have some fun with collaged prints from the seventeenth-century botanical etchings, jungle scenes and seascapes!

We're channelling our inner Martha Stewart and bringing a fresh take on traditional patchwork! Patched Perfection is a new look at print mixing and patchworking to create new borders and framed layouts. The trick is being clever with splicing modern layouts; as they are just as important as the prints themselves.

Someone take us away, we're spending the week inspired by the crushing Caribbean sun! Imagine aimlessy roaming the beaches, dressed in creole and historic blouses, bleached by the sun, worn by the ocean spray, mixed with patched up workwear. Assembled shells and exotic flowers create a new romantic story that this week is all about!

We're packing our bags and getting ready for a vacation with this exotic island theme! Oversized is our focus with scale and formation being the key for this new and improved palm theme. We play with greens and a mixture of tones to give a more modern and adventurous vibe for summer. Someone fan us with some palm leaves pronto - we're ready to relax!

We're delving into the bizarre and mystic world of Beautiful Bizarre with strange yet beautiful prints. This week, we're focusing on everything from earthy tones to eye motifs, in order to give a sense of obscurity to the collection. We're looking towards myths and legends in a very engineered constructed layout with textures and lines giving it a modern graphic feeling.
