Happy Birthday Cherchbi! We went along last night to the beautiful brand's 5th birthday party and received this gorgeous keyring to mark the occasion. This is a brand that deserves a shop. The designer (Adam) pays such close attention to detail and the quality of the leather and make of the product is just impeccable. Marwood and Cherchbi share similar sensibilities which could just lead to something interesting in the future. More to report another time...
Having watched 'Downton Abbey' the other night there was a classic Maggie Smith line...
"Oh I'm so sorry I thought you were a waiter"
She was referring to the Lord's attire of black bow tie instead of white. Apparently a big faux-pas for dress etiquette rules of those times. Having done some research there are rules about white and black tie outfitting and whilst rules can be good for these occasions it would be more interesting to see the fabrications played with. Keep it white or black but switch up the textures and fabrics involved. Exchange the satin black bow for a black mesh lace bow tie and the white for the the ecru mesh lace by Marwood. Small elements to change but why not?
Thanks to Wallpaper* magazine for listing and shooting Marwood AW12 lace bow tie in their "Retail: Best of UK" feature. It is exciting for us to be listed amongst such great designers and product. Click here to see the online article - or you can just buy the magazine.
