Remember this behind the scenes Instagram snap? It was taken back in November last year when I headed to Laura Ashley’s press show in London to film a video tour of their Spring/Summer 2013 collection, and here it is! I was really impressed by how much colour I saw across the the three collections: Coastal, Palace Gardens and Bloomsbury, but it was the latter that really captured my imagination. The Bloomsbury collection is a reinvention of their original Bloomsbury collection from the 1980’s and is part of the company’s 60th anniversary celebrations. The brand might be 60 years old but this collection shows that there’s a still plenty of youth at their heart! I love the core colour palette of grape, amethyst and yellow that stretches across the range. In fact, I recently started redecorating my home office in similar tones so the collection couldn’t be better timed. You can take a look at all three themes from Laura Ashley’s new collection in the video above – what’s catching you eye, friends?
