Sessun

On Saturday I visited Supra boutique on London's Portobello road. They are currently stocking the French lable, Sessun. This label has been around for at least ten years, but has reinvented itself in the last two to be a little sister to Isabel Marant loving types. The prices are a bit smaller, but the style is still big, with garments to wear from the city to the countryside and back again. Pretty florals, chambray blues, greens and creams

Tatooed Lady 1961

For months now me and my boyfriend have been trying to find out which artist it was that painted the below picture, 'Tatooed Lady 1961'. I saw the artwork in Elle magazine based on Jade Jagger's home and we both really liked it. It was only reading up on Peter Blakes, Cloud print for Stella McCartneys exclusive collection for Net-a-porter that I found out that it was him who created this very cool piece of work!

Anges Barley

I really like Art which combines shapes with colour, this comes from my obession with collages first formed whilst on my BA Printed Textiles course. Artist Anges Barley creates paintings of watercolour cut outs which are fun pieces which give the feeling origami, folding and unfolding paper.

Influence

I recently purchased Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's 'Influence' book. It comprises conversations the sister's have had with artists, designers, photographers and writers from all over the world. I really like the layout and style of the book so already I have been influenced!
