Found: Rowen and Wren

I’m still looking for the perfect finishing touches for my lounge and dining room and the search led me to Rowen and Wren. A treasure trove of incredibly understated style, the collection is beautifully presented and just the image sets alone are inspiring, so I thought I would share some of them here.

There are three collections with distinct styling, the most classic of which is the Timeless Living collection.

Discretely elegant but with a modern contemporary edge, everything in it has touch appeal.

Refined rural is different all together with a rustic country vibe, yet kept up to date again with salvaged touches and industrial metal hints.

Full of natural materials, it’s reminiscent of the perfect weekend bolt-hole.

Distant home has a global feel, full of treasures you could have picked up on your travels around the world. If you like an eclectic look there’s plenty here to blend in with your taste.

Have you heard of Rowen and Wren and are you joining me in the Rowen and Wren fan club? I’d love to hear which of their looks here is your favourite?

Love,

Spotted: French Connection Home

This morning I have something new to share with you, hot off the press, the new French Connection Home range, launched yesterday.


With a distinctly global yet rustic feel, fans of the all-white look will be in seventh heaven perusing the whitewashed backdrops with carefully selected neutral textiles in shades of grey with blue highlights and creams mixed with hessian tones and textured linens or rugs.


Florence’s favourites? The safari chair, drift wood stool and tripod side table. All different, but all extremely covetable. Price points are at the upper end of high street and I fear this may be French Connection’s downfall after the initial hype subsides leading to heavily discounted sales akin to the clothing line. On the flip side, the majority of the larger pieces, lighting, the chairs, side tables etc are investment pieces with statement potential that you will have for years. The collection doesn’t give the impression of being disposable home ware. In the mean time, there are certainly pieces that I’ll be adding to my list of ‘wants’.

Do you like?

Spotted: Whistles SS12

It’s not a secret that I am a big fan of Whistles, and this season, I am loving the early press releases of their collections. Full of pieces that are easy to wear (read: loose shapes and chiffon pleats) there’s also a healthy dose of colour interspersed among the navy that I love.

First up, my key seasonal piece – the laser cut out leather top. You’ll be seeing a lot of this in the ad campaigns I suspect (ditto leather on the whole this season) and I think it’s one of those pieces that will go a long way in your wardrobe, seasonless and a style staple for years to come. Expect long waiting lists and sell out success.

Next, my favourite, the floral prints. I was a little underwhelmed by Whistles last season, mainly due to the lack of colour and as a big fan of brights my prayers have been answered. Although I’m not sure I’m brave enough to rock the tailoring in fuschia, the yellow print dress virtually has my name on it. Check out the sample of print here that translates into this fabulous jumpsuit too.

Your sartorial fashion crises solved for any summer formal events? The dresses. There’s not a season goes by without me buying a Whistles dress, although I have also been known where possible (and Whistles often do it) to buy the top and skirt in one print then wear together or separately, particularly when it comes to a more casual look. The jumpsuit featured here has been tipped for the top of the style charts but I am head over heels about the scallop edged cream dress. Come to Mama.

Lastly, global prints. Although I’ll admit when I first clocked these I wasn’t that keen, I’ve now scoured the collection images 3 or 4 times and each time I get more and more enamoured with the look. There is something very nonchalant about the shapes. Did I mention those sunglasses – chic.

I’m also loving the styling in these images. Often absorbed by the clothes themselves, I am actually kind of wishing I was the model in these shots with her grown-up look and simple style. All in all, Whistles SS12 is a winner for me..

What do you think readers? Are you a fan of Whistles or could this collection convert you?

Love,
