New Arrivals : Maison Boinet

We’ve just received our Spring Summer 2013 collection of belts from Maison Boinet. This season we are introducing new styles, as well as replenishing some of the classics. The perfect way to add definition to your waist, or simply polish off an outfit, these belts are as functional as they are flattering.

See below for a closer look at selected styles.

Short Stories : BLESS

BLESS T-shirt dress

BLESS began in 1996 as a collaboration between Ines Kaag in Berlin and Desiree Heiss in Paris. Straight out of fashion school, in a creative attempt to find jobs, the pair took out an ad in i-D magazine for a Rod-Stewart -like fur wig (seriously!). When a new Parisian shop called Colette was looking for an opening lineup and asked to see their collection, rather than be hired to work for someone else, their business was born.

To find out more about BLESS, read this excellent interview in Icon Magazine – thanks for the link Trish!

Pictured in this post are many of the designs by BLESS we have in store – and the pieces below are for both women and men.

April Arrivals : Mercy SS 2013

Swiss cotton blocked shirt dress

We just received three very cool new dresses from the Mercy Spring Summer collection. The Swiss cotton blocked shirt dress (above) is inspired by the idea of a woman wearing an oversized men’s shirt. This dress can either be belted, or worn loose, and instantly makes you feel put together because it’s like a crisp white shirt, but better. For the transitional weather we’ve been experiencing of late, I’ve been wearing my white cotton shirt dress like a tunic over skinny jeans. This piece has quickly become a Spring favourite.
