Yesterday I spent a blissful afternoon having a lazy lunch at a London lido. It was a delight to feel the warm sun against my bare arms, to hear excited children bounce in and out of the glistening blue water, to see smiling sun-worshippers relax by the pool.
Yes, I did say yesterday. And yes, I did say London. It's the end of September - early Autumn -which usually signifies packing away our summer clothes for the next six months. Feeling a tinge of sadness as we say good-bye to light-weight dresses and summer sandals. No Way! Bikinis, sarongs and sunglasses were de rigeur yesterday. The sun continues to shine so we will continue to embrace it with sun-kissed legs and arms.
The intoxication of a late summer seems perfect timing (apologies to those who are sitting under grey skies) to rejoice some of the SS10 collections shown at the Estethica exhibition during London Fashion Week.
"timeless pieces; offering a true meaning, direction and soul"
The collection is created using recycled materials including vintage kimonos and sustainable bamboo fabrics. Garments are produced by a registered women's project in London.
Designed, printed and produced in Australia.
The Bird collection is made from organic fabrics, hand-printed using water based dyes.
The collection is produced using 100% renewable solar power.
"effortlessly sensual garments"
The collection is created using only organic and sustainable fabrics to create a modern sculptural silhouette.
This outfit is one of my favourites!
