I loved the bright colours used within the collections and the range of different designs available. I purchased a selection of items from the website which came very quickly and were packaged well and they go perfectly with my summer outfits! These items (shown below) came from the Eclectic Collection which is part of the SS15 collections.

Coco & Sebastian create absolutely stunning printed scarves which are inspired by the travels of Princess Coco and Sebastian. (Read their full story on their website by clicking here.)

I will be focusing on the Spring/Summer 2015 collection in this post but please go and check out all their ranges. Each collection is so unique and their lookbook images are some of the best I have seen! I felt so inspired by them!coco-and-sebastian-london-ss-15-product-info-_Page_2-860x607

The Spring/Summer 2015 collection is full of gorgeous prints including a beautiful frog scarf, an image of a bear and of other insect and beetle inspired prints. The collection was inspired by the Garden of Eden. The colours are beautifully intertwined with the intricate detail of each individual pattern which is what assists in making these scarves so unique. I will definitely be taking one on my holiday to wear on the beach and in the evening. To demonstrate the detail of one of these scarves I have included the frog print below and a couple of additional favourites!

Whilst browsing the website I also came across the new Autumn/Winter 2015 collection. It’s always good to keep a season ahead and I absolutely love what Coco & Sebastian have planned! Their collection is inspired by folklore and I love how they have combined so many different patterns, colours and lines into the print. They look even more fantastic when you hold the scarf up to a window or light as that is when the true intricate detail comes through.

11. Ismad London

Our featured business is… Ismad London!

Ismad London, set up by founder Isabelle in 2003 is eco-friendly leather accessories business with beautiful bags inspired by handcrafted African crafts. What I loved most about these bags is how beautifully handcrafted they look, as though a lot of care has gone into the manufacture of them. I’m not usually a fan of leather accessories, but after looking through the pieces on this website there are a few that I have absolutely fallen in love with including the Alice Bag, Camera Small and the Sac A Dos collection.

The Alice Bag is one of my absolute favourite pieces on the website. A sweet, compact girly bag which is practical and has the ability to match with any outfit. It comes in a range of colours including Tan, Black and Chocolate with a number of pockets and an adjustable shoulder strap. I love the chocolate colour, shown below, which I would probably wear with a pretty floral dress in the spring. It is currently £89 with free shipping.

For bloggers like myself, having a camera is a necessity. The Camera Small bag provides the perfect solution for carrying not only the camera but any additional batteries and components you may need! It has two pockets at the front with individual buckles and a main compartment also with a buckle offering a secure fastening. I’m usually a bit funny when it comes to buckle fastenings as those bags don’t usually have much security for valuables however this bag is fantastic as it offers a zip compartment too! It is also available in a range of colours and is produced using eco-friendly leather. It is currently £89 with free shipping.

Sac A Dos is great for those who enjoy travelling. It’s great for a day trip that I would take out sightseeing or on trips over the summer. It has a great main pocket and a smaller pocket located on the front with a buckle fastening. It also has a fab secret pocket at the back which is perfect for storing any valuables! It is currently priced at £75 with free delivery.

10. Mojiana

Our featured business is… Mojiana!

I first discovered Mojiana at Pure London when I visited a few weeks ago (Click here to read my post on the event!) Their pieces were featured on the catwalk in several collections and definitely stood out as something a bit more unique and unusual.

logo-1

I want to share a collection that I absolutely adore – the Galaxy collection. A collection made up of bold, statement pieces which incorporate a range of materials. I have only recently really got into statement jewellery but once I started purchasing statement necklaces I can’t seem to stop! I wear them on all my nights out now and they definitely add that little bit extra to any outfit. i have included a couple of my favourite pieces below from the Galaxy collection below but make sure you take a look through the whole collection though as I would love to hear what your faves are! One thing I noticed about this collection is the range of patterns and shapes – every piece is different with its own different style which is what I particularly love about the collection. There are some fantastic pieces to choose from.

After looking through the other collections on the website I also came across two other collections I fell in love with. Project Britain – a range of retro pieces inspired by all things British and Project Eternity which included some beautiful bracelets I had to share with you all! Do you have any favourite pieces? Let me know in the comments below!

Pretty & Petit at Pure London – Feb 2015!

On Sunday 8th February 2015 I travelled the (short!) distance down to Kensington Olympia in West London to visit one of the most renowned trade shows on the fashion calendar. Pure London, made up of just over 800 exhibitors – 300 of which are new to the event this February, is a 3 day event which invites buyers and other fashion professionals to see next A/W 2015 trends from brands based all over the world.

I started off the afternoon watching the womenswear catwalk show which had six different scenes. Encrypted, My Street My Way, New Heritage, Streamline, Curated Eccentric and Folk Tales. Each of these demonstrated key trends for Autumn/Winter 2015.

My absolute favourite collection was the My Street My Way collection which incorporated brights and bold accessories into street style. Here are some clips!

Next, I moved on to listen to the presentation “Utilising the power of the blog” hosted by Steve Spear, Pure Talk Editor joined by Jo Stefanicki from The Fashion Parade and Francis Bacon from School Run Style who were both discussing their blogs. Some interesting questions were asked and their stories were truly inspiring!

I then continued the afternoon by heading upstairs to the Accessories and Shoes. I found lots of fabulous brands including some of my all time favourites including Vendula London, Estella Bartlett and Tatty Devine, and some new favourites Little Moose, Talented and My Flash Trash.

Next it was back to the Spirit catwalk show which included brands such as Goddiva and Neon Rose plus my one of my personal favourites Glamorous. I thoroughly enjoyed The Pretty Dress collection too!

I finished off my day by strolling through the Spirit zone. Originally, the priority of my visit had been the accessories and footwear collections but I had felt so inspired by the catwalk show that I wanted to spend some time looking through the Spirit collections. I did not feel let down and found lots of fabulous brands which I cannot wait to share with you all!
