The Swedish Collection from Vanessa Arbuthnott

New for 2012, the Swedish Collection from Vanessa Arbuthnott.

Taking inspiration from some of the iconic British designers of the 1950’s but with a subtle Scandinavian twist.

Simple images of birds and stylised foliage in soft Gustavian colours but paired with surprisingly bright contemporary colours too.  Like this soft blue and zingy orange.

I wanted to capture the nostalgia of a very English style, but reinterpret it in a way that wasn’t too quaint or fussy: in essence to bridge the gap between town and country, classic and contemporary, without ever seeming as though it’s trying too hard or looking out-of-place.”

 Lovely for summer!
