>> Dreaming is key on Friday.  If I don't dream a little from 3pm onwards on a Friday, I know that there is no Friday feeling and that the weekend will be a hollow waste of two days.  Today, there was dreaming involved.  It ensued after I unzipped these images sent to by Swash of their S/S 10 collection where beautifully illustrated model air balloons, wallpaper drops and of course, beautiful BEAUTFIUL clothes all mingle together and where Toshio Yamanaka's watercolour illustrations play around on Sarah Swash's shapes.   Argue against the clothes and in this half-dreaming, half-dazed state, I may have to set the Swash dog on you…

    I love Swash ever since you mentioned them for the first time. I can’t even find where to purchase their clothes. Do you have any resources? I would save an arm and leg to get my hand on a piece.

    The prints are amazing, but they wouldn’t look the same without those amazing illustrations behind them- that was a truly inspired choice on the part of the art director, whoever he/she is..

  31. Dru says:

    Ok, I overused the word ‘amazing’- but it does seem apt..

  32. Hello Girlie,
    I am loving this lookbook collection. OMG, I can’t get enough of those illustrations and props, I’d love to fill my home with lots of made up balloons and such.
    Thank you for the inspiration! Have a fab weekend xoxo
