If you fancy a trek to the south coast this autumn, be sure to stop in at Brighton & Hove Museum to see the new Biba & Beyond: Barbara Hulanicki exhibition.
As you would expect from the Biba founder, the Barbara Hulanicki Matt Emulsion colours tend towards the bold and dramatic with several shades of purple amongst the 24 options. Obviously once it is on your walls, the designer won’t be apparent, but the paint does come in a pot with Hulanicki’s signature design on the front.
It costs £23 per 2.5 litre pot from Graham and Brown.
The initial collection of Biba for the House of Fraser didn't exactly set the world alight, bit the forthcoming Biba Bridal collection might find the company a significant niche market.
It's a limited edition collection of seven designs, sold in runs of 100 for each, along with a range of accessories, all with a vintage influence that's said to reflect the brand's heritage. One of the designs is pictured above to give you an idea of what's coming.
Look out for the range in February, sold in sizes 6 – 18 at the Bluewater, Dundrum, Glasgow, London Oxford Street, London Westfield and Manchester stores, as well as online. Prices are said to range from £575 through to £725, which isn't bad for a limited edition. The initial Biba range is now in the sale at House of Fraser too.
