The ever so lovely Lee and Yan of Bespoke PR invited me today to attend the previews of the Spring/Summer 2012 collections from Miijo.com, Carment Steffens, Venice jewellery, Mister Zimi, Paper Skye and Martha Rey swimwear. This season’s fashion goodies come in new rings from Erin Wasson’s Low Luv jewellery line to Mister Zimi’s handcratfed leather pieces. And talk about on trend. Colour blocking, animal print and textures were all present in the Spring/Summer collections available for press.
However what won me over today’s media previews were the lime green macaroons. I was decadent enough to help myself to three. As always I was greeted by the lovely atmosphere that is the Bespoke PR showroom. After previewing the collections and chowing down on the macaroons I spent at least another forty minutes just hanging out and talking to the girls. It’s nice when you feel that comfortable with fashion industry people – the industry is notorious for it’s snobbish over Gucci (well in this zeigeist’s case Celine)-ed elitists. Yan and Lee are far from those types. So far that another blogger Margaret Zhang of Shine by Three sought it fit to sit a while and just chill there! Isn’t that cute? Here are some of the images from today, shot on my lovely Samsung Galaxy S.
Guess what? I even managed to source while I was there. Sourced a few pairs of Antoine + Stanley shoes for Friday’s shoot.
