The promise of warmer weather goes hand in hand with dressing in lighter layers.
Our collection this season, as always, embraces the natural and tactile fabrics of cotton and silk, in neutral shades of stone, white, cream, pale grey and black. Our latest drop includes these sweet blouses in textured cotton. The fit is loose and laid back, one size fits all. Pair with a cashmere scarf or linen jacket to take you through Spring, then layer over one of our sheer camisoles as the weather warms up for an easy outfit.
Our favourite trainers are by Veja. Based in France, they manufacture their shoes in Brazil and each and every part of the production from beginning to end, is socially and ethically conscious. Veja are an ecological and fairtrade company who work with cooperatives of small producers and social associations of France and Brazil. They also happen to make the coolest trainers in the world.. Flint are proud to be one of the only UK stockists and we've just received a new delivery so call in and try a pair..
This much-loved label from Spain, Masscob has just delivered its stunning new collection. Stand out pieces this season include the longline black cover up - a simple, elegant piece to throw over jeans. There are also some great tie-waisted pants in a fine check - perfect paired with a simple white shirt and a linen jumpsuit that'll be perfect for summer. Texture is key, linen, cheesecloth and fine cotton are all present here.
The collection seems to take its inspiration from the dusty sun baked palette of a beautiful Spanish landscape. Shades of sienna, burnt umber and black, balanced with neutral cream and white all evoke that scorched Spanish terrain in the early evening light, making us yearn for those sun drenched lands.
Our Spring 2017 collections are arriving thick and fast.. The latest to land is the most beautiful collection from Paris based, Mes Demoiselles. Light as air silk and cotton, in trademark prints, these are the perfect pieces to take you through the summer. In a soft palette of blue, sage and coral, the collection this season sings for summer days.. A few pieces are available via our website but call in to the store to see the full collection..
As much as we love the winter season for its sense of hunkering down, gathering family and friends, the festivities of Christmas, not to mention the textures of cashmere and wool, and the warm coats and heavy boots of the winter collections, the promise of spring brings a sense of renewal and hope and lighter clothes that we love in equal measure.
The new season is a chance to edit your wardrobe, to refresh the rails and perhaps re-think a look. We're currently a little bit in love with culottes which are big news at the moment. Denham, Sideline and Barena are all embracing this style with aplomb for SS'16 and we've been pairing them with a shorter top or a tucked in shirt, for a fresh silhoutte that works really well. Whether you choose to wear them with a heeled boot or a pair of white sneakers - our choice would be either Apisi or Raquet from Hudson - this look can go from work to play, day or night. Barena continues to deliver beautifully crafted clothes and the palette this spring has been our inspiration across all our collections. Navy, cream, white, black and teal features in our clothes edit as well as our homeware collections this spring...
Swildens is back for us this season and is looking better than ever. This quintessentially Parisian label bears all the hallmarks we've come to love - think perfectly cut shirts, jackets and jeans - clothes that fit seamlessly into your wardrobe, but this spring sees the return of the dress. Albeit a longer line, the Swildens dress is worn in a nonchalant way, a low drawstring waist and paired with a tailored jacket. Our spring/summer collections for 2016 are generally more transeasonal than in the past although high summer pieces will arrive as we get nearer to July and August, but rest assured that what you will find are pieces you wondered how you managed without and as the winter gives way to spring and the nights get lighter, and with deliveries starting to arrive at the end of this month, that's something I can't wait to share with you!
