P.S it’s Tea Time

Whilst looking at these bright and playful tea-towels by Mr.PS, I got to thinking why they are in fact called ‘Tea Towels’…an obvious answer perhaps?

I have never been a fan of traditional Indian clothing, always thinking it either too frumpy or too garish. That is until I discovered Sabyasachi Mukherjee…now there is no going back!

Mociun

I am obsessed with prints right now – graphic mid century modern prints on everything. NY based label Mociun’s Spring 2008 collection is dreamy. Read more…
