Black & Gold

Black and Gold is one of those classic combinations that is very hard to get wrong. It seems to be everywhere right now and I'm especially loving black & gold jewelry. Zelia Horsley's AW11 collection utilizes the combination brilliantly. Her work has an ever so slight toughness, that completely appeals to my anti-glamor self.

I'm also intrigued by the draped vs. structured concept of these neck pieces from her SS12 collection.

If you are interested in buying her work, she has a number of stockists both online and brick and mortar.

Rabbit Heart

I can't tell you how much I am enamored by Felicity Brown's SS12 collection. Love the inclusion of jewel tones with nude shades, love the ombre effect-which the strategically placed hand dyed fabric strips create, love the soft neo-raphaelite styling. I can totally see Florence Welch in some of these pieces!

A graduate of the revered Royal College of Art, Felicity Brown is a fairly recent addition to the LFW schedule. She has stuck to her signature of working with hand-dyed pieces of fabric, but in contrast to her AW11 collection her SS12 one has a more refined commercial direction.

A look from her AW11 collection

I really wonder how she will use this technique going forward. Absolutely beautiful, I say!
