Love the fab midcentury-style illustrations on these Colourful Creatures cushions, new in at Dotcomgiftshop.
We've been looking at the Orla Kiely spring range of mugs, which are typically desirable. One set particularly stood out, however: her charming animal mug designs.
This brand new Forest Friends collection from Magpie brings an autumnal aesthetic to their charmingly retro, wildlife inspired homewares.
Dolce & Gabbana are a design house well known for their decadent style, creating fashion that is often over the top in its luxurious fabric and cut choices. This Ocelot Buster Dress is an ideal representation of that long standing reputation, with elements of classic designs from the brand itself.
The dress has a wiggle style cut and structure, creating a daringly sexy silhouette with its figure hugging fit and skinny straps. The ocelot print provides a chic twist to the sometimes tacky all-over leopard print, but treads that line between trashy and vampish in an ideal fifties-look style.
It's available from My Wardrobe in the UK now for £395.
Leopard print has by now reached near saturation as a retro print choice, but thanks to its lasting appeal across many decades it's going nowhere. While some leopard print items may end up looking more Bet Lynch than Bettie Page (no bad thing, in our opinion), there are plenty which retain that higher end classic look.
This Leopard version of the Bayswater Bag by Mulberry has an undeniable air of luxury about it, with use of a calf hair fabric and sparing gold-look hardware. Making it easier to wear leopard print with everything, the bag is oversized enough to make a big impression, without looking overworn like many dresses and coats can.
It's available in the UK from My Wardrobe, at Mulberry's usual high cost – this time £1650.
