>> I'm keeping things short and clippy for the time being as I'm whipping up a batch of emails which begin with "Dear xxx, I was burgled on Friday therefore I can't xxx…").  The situation is much aided by SD cards which I thankfully off-loaded and have thus found a few bits and bobs for me to go "YAY!" about on here.

I'm not a huge fan of talking up collections excitedly that won't drop into stores until months and months later.  S/S 11 is just about done and dusted and for me, A/W 11-12 posting will be intensely underway over the next month before S/S 12 shows kick off.  Except I made the mistake of going over to Paris last week and popping into the bStore and Six London showrooms where they had a good selection of their S/S 12 stock to do sales.  S/S 12 – that's stuff that won't physically be in-store until around Feb time.  That's err…Febraury 2012.  For a person that doesn't even know what's happening at the end of this week, this is a new level of advanced planning.

Nevertheless, I'm supremely excited that bStore have taken their collaboration with Liberty Fabrics to a womenswear level and have gone one step further to add shoes and bags that perfectly balance out bStore's aesthetic with the combination of four Liberty prints.  A detailed loafer, a slingback shoe with a perspex heel and a boxy satchel brings previous bStore collections to mind but the addition of the Liberty print augments them beyond belief.  I clamoured over the rail exclaming "This is SO good!" over and over again, so much so that the showroom people had to get me a Coke to calm me down.  I'll be following up on this with the actual clothes in the collection but like I said S/S 12 seems to far, far away… for now, just remember this is all yet to come and perhaps saving a fiver a week might help you along your way when these actually drop in February.

    So glad you offloaded your SD cards and that you’re still blogging! I love the perspex heels, Liberty prints plus little splashes of colour and I love the stitch detailing of the last handbag. All 3 colours of it!

  15. Duck says:

    I too am now totally confused about what season I’m dressing for… I want to wear all the amazing SS2012 stuff I saw in Paris but the current summer things are in the sales right now and I haven’t even got to try on AW2011. A mess.
    The shoes with acetate heels are perfection! Perfect for a wannabe Chloe Sevigny – or the girl herself!

    I really love the bags in this collection; the boot-type wedges are also a favorite of mine! – Hm, they should really begin creating some garish floral shirts for guys; I know I would certainly be first in cue! – Daniel Dunt

  17. Yum. I really want the bag.

  18. The floral prints on those shoes are just simply chic (both pairs). They look like they would be the perfect addition to a summery outfit!
