hope you're having an amazing weekend, the weather's been beautiful and yesterday and today i went for lovely bike rides down by a river (there's a hanky panky...two fat frogs sitting down beside me...ooh aahh ooh ahh down by the river there's an odd one out!) which was beautiful and as i love a bit of photography, i took some photos to show you :)
but before that i've newly discovered a really cool and colourful designer which i know you'll all love. but of course like with any designer there are good things and bad things.
the designer i'm talking about is a trio of designers who go by the name of horace (http://horace.tv/) which are: adam entwisle, emma hales and philip grisewood. they founded the brand in 2002 with design studios in bali and london. although clothing isn't available for purchase on the website, collections are available at asos.com, goodad.com, beyond the valley, shop 172, bitching& junkfood and village bicycle.
so with no further ado, here are horace:
1. spring/summer 2011
as you can see, the collection is a mixture of greys and brights. i really love the bright colours combined with the greys and bland colours. also the bold patterns and styles. i love the baseball jacket on the 1st model, leather jacket on the 2nd, 3rd shirt, 4th waistcoat, 5th jacket, 6th jumpsuit, and i'm no entirely sure what the 7th thing is haha. is it a dress or an elongated vest? whatever it is the pattern is quite cool :P i love that horace is completely unlike i've ever seen before and i could actually imagine real people wearing these items in everyday life :)
here are some things from the autumn/winter 2011 collection:
for some reason, i prefer the summer stuff but there are a few things that i really love in this section. i love the oversized jumper, and you see bananas again in the second and third outfits! but i love the blue banana trousers, if you wore them with a simple tee or something they have potential. one thing though, i absolutely hate the boots that the girl is wearing, i think they look like a cat squashed into a black bin bag who's fur is squashed through.
anyway, i love the pattern of the 4th dress but i'm not sure about the style. i also love the jacket the 5th guy is wearing, i'm not sure why but i like the different sleeves and think that the spikes would look really good over a bodycon dress or something. i like the baby blue leotard too but it looks like a swimming costume and i'm really not sure about the male dress... but there you go, a designer's whole collection can't be amazing!
but i think that horace is definitely one to watch so check it out at http://horace.tv/!
now here are those pictures from my lovely bike ride with my brother and daddy:)
