For as long as I can remember I have loved childrens books, yes, I love the modern ones, but my particular favourites are the classics. My children are all now at an age where they too appreciate these stories and the magic within the pages, and it has been really special to re read some of the best over the summer. Therefore my inspiration this season comes from my love of classics, the sense of nostalgia and memories that they conjure and the magic that they bring.
Some of my favourites (and now my children's) are The Railway Children, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Secret Garden, Swallows and Amazons and of course my all time favourite, Anne of Green Gables. I often feel that I was born in the wrong generation, for I love the simple and classic fashion described within the pages of these books. I have added some new designs to the website this season inspired by these books. The traditional beret has been given a modern twist, bonnets continue to be featured in various different styles, and the neck scarf added makes the perfect accessory for the colder months. My colour palette continues to reflect my love of nature, and in particular the jewel like colours of the changing leaves during these Autumn months. I hope you like what you discover, and I would really love to know what your favourite childrens books are?
