I have briefly fallen off the bloggosphere due to work and pure fatigue. But whilst flicking through a horrible girl mag at work today my eyes popped when I saw the work of Mary Katrantzou. I love the silhouettes, the patterns, colours, combinations… everything is so explosive and yet confined due to the shapes and tailoring. Fashion can be great craic. AND she’s designed a 2012 Spring Collection for TopShop. Nice.

We have a new secondhand desk in our abode and I am starting the process of a gentle sanding down and a patient waxing to restore it to it’s former glory. I think it is a fancy kind of patterned plywood nicely curved into a distinctive modernist style. I love it and can’t wait to see what it looks like when I’m done. In the meantime I spotted these pieces on The Finders Keepers that reminded me of said desk. Wouldn’t mind owning one of these My Mother Mabel big bangles please. Although they look like they should be worn in a sunny clime so I would require a holiday in the sun to do them justice…

I find the Lotocoho site a bit perplexing but the featured pieces are just so fantastic that I had to post them.
