YES. The campaign is finally out, as well as the new collection being online - (knitwear and coats to follow next week). I am so excited, every season I am more and more happy with the brand and the exciting direction it’s taking. I loved the opportunity to work with two models for the first time; it creates a really great dynamic within the images I think. Gotta go as super busy with the new collection on the run up to fashion month just around the corner!

The insanely beautiful Vanessa of The Haute Pursuit wearing my new season mohair knit. So happy that this small styling piece has turned into a major collection must have – from the front page of the Telegraph magazine to my first piece shot by Tommy Ton on Style.com streetstyle. The delicate fabric is composed by tiny strands of intertwined cotton, looping together with mohair trapped in between, very beautiful, I think you’ll agree.
As the last of my spring/summer collection is disappearing into sale, I’m happy as the weather is finally good enough to permit me to wear it all here in London. A few pieces Ive been wearing to death is the cami dress (perfectly breezy), the raw v dress (raw silk always gets me) and the croc embossed raffia bomber (need I say more?). This feature comes from a meet up with Coldlilies to shoot my favourites from their site. You can find the online curation here. So many perfectly delicate pieces, when it’s too hot to wear anything else.

So insanely excited to have my AW14 mohair top featured on the cover of the Telegraph magazine a couple of weeks back. My first ever cover and hopefully not the last. Super happy as usually these covers are graced by celebrities and not chic minimal fashion stories, wahoo!
So it happened on instagram and I thought it was time to reward my lovely readers on here too! So I’m giving away a pair of my Hudson collaboration shoes to one lucky reader. Please leave your email address with the comment, the winner will be contacted on the 1st July.
It’s always a great honour to see your work translated exactly how you imagined it; in the form of street style/personal style, editorial or photography. The work of photographer Yuvali Theis is something I admire greatly, she has the most amazing eye for detail and there’s a soft femininity that comes through in her work, as well as just being too damn cool for her own good. Same goes for stylist Lucia Silva; I’m in love with the editorial they’ve worked on together for Ones2Watch, it’s kind of amazing to see all your collections styled together in one body of work. It feels like the perfect ed for the start of summer!

Absolutely love this image from the new Alvar magazine, featuring the raw silk dress from my SS14 collection, available to buy now. This is exactly how I picture it being worn / exactly how I would wear it if I could get over wearing a denim jacket.
Already planning my next visit down to the Devon seaside for my birthday at the end of the month, so perhaps this will need to be recreated. Thank you Alvar!
If you guys are already subscribed to my newsletter you’ll already know this, but the Hudson Brogues are back in stock! Back by popular demand after selling out in just a week. The limited edition shoes are available to buy now, I won’t be putting in another order so this is your last chance! :) Perfect for summer and even more perfect to do some shopping this bank holiday from the comfort of your sofa. Have a great weekend!
Finally I get to show you these beautiful backstage pictures from my AW14 show! It’s always over so quickly, and such a whirlwind I can hardly remember, so looking back over these it the perfect little memory jog. I’m so happy with how the collection looks this season, I think it’s finally at where I really want it to be; the styling and model casting by the incredibly talented Nobuko Tannawa, the space inside the OXO tower on Southbank with so much natural light, and finally the collaborations with Gigi Burris millenary and Eleven Everything knitwear. So happy to have met you both you insane talents! To see the full runway looks go to Vogue.co.uk.
