My Life in Print

7 June 2015

Have you ever had a piece of clothing that is just so pretty and perfect that you want to wear it every single day as well as have it hanging up just so you can stare at it BUT at the same time you're a little scared of damaging it because it is just too perfect? (Nobody else, no?!) Anyway that's exactly how I feel about these culottes, from Oasis' collection in collaboration with the V&A - could there be anything more perfect?!

The collection focuses on some truly beautiful prints that are all inspired by eleven botanical 18th and 19th century designs, which gives each garment an exciting historical twist! As you know, I love everything botanical so I can't resist the collection. I especially love how Oasis have managed to take traditional prints and make them contemporary and work on trendy shapes, like the culottes. I knew I needed the culottes in my life straight away, with their feminine high-waist yet on-trend below-the-knee fitting. Plus, they seem to go with everything, from jumpers and denim jackets for cooler days to simple crop tops for the summer.

I headed to my local (and personal favourite) National Trust property, Ightham Mote, as I thought the rose gardens, beautiful old walls and hidden details would be the perfect setting to show them off! What piece from the collection have you made a beeline for?
