KIDS DESIGN - new season M&S

I was really pleased to see these fab new arrivals in Marks & Spencer this week. They had taken delivery of some really colourful, punchy new prints for children. I loved the painterly graphics of this bold design (above & below) which featured on a dress, leggings and coat. Another stand out print was a bright yellow cloud and rain design. Here are some snaps from my local store mixed with new spring season designs found online.

CARDS/STATIONERY - marks & spencer

Staying with Marks and Spencer I also spotted two interesting diary designs and a few greetings cards that I hadn't seen before.

PAPERCHASE SS17 - ecojot

We have been looking at new arrivals at Paperchase this week so I was really pleased to find out that top designer Carolyn Gavin has new designs going into Paperchase from her Ecojot company. There are seven new styles arriving this week that are all proudly made in Canada and of course 100% post consumer recycled. Here are some snaps of the notebooks that will be available...

STORE SNAPS - morley's

For the first Friday eye candy post of 2016 I have some store snaps. Last weekend I went to Brixton and popped into their local department store Morley's. The store opened in 1927, although the business actually began in 1880. I had a quick browse around homewares, cards, and fashion to see what prints and patterns were on offer. I found bedding from Scion, Lotta Jansdotter and Clarissa Hulse, and some interesting new cards from Woodmansterne.
