The French Invasion - Part 1

As always I was inspired by the South of France when planning my buying trip for SS19 last year. Inspiration came from The French Riviera (during the late 1950`s and early 1960`s,) the photography of Slim Aarons and a brilliant article in Conde Nast traveller highlighting the French Riviera in its heyday. Not surprisingly we added to the existing French brands currently in store -  Armor Lux, Maison Labiche and Denim Studio with Tinsels, Sacrecoeur ,Le Petit Baigneur and Diega. See below for a mish mash of inspiration.

and of course the style icons Brigitte Bardot and Jackie O  -Always a source of inspiration

New Label Love Part Two - Fabienne Chapot



Bold new brand Fabienne Chapot dropped into Starburst last month so if you are  a fan of bonkers prints and mad splashes of colour then you are in luck.  Cute peach prints, delicate sea shells, pastel pink palm trees adorn 50`s style shorts, simple tea dresses, crossover blouses and floor sweeping maxi dresses. The catwalk show was divine with models emerging from giant shells adorned in fish scale sequins and the signature prints for SS19. The sultry campaign all shot in the med makes you want every single piece. Prices from £45.00 for a T-shirt.  A selection is available on-line at Starburst Boutique.

Primrose Park - New Label Love




As a massive fan of print and colour I feel deeply in love with a Primrose Park dress last summer. In a beautiful washed leopard the Tiffany drew me in with its flattering v neck, cinched in waist and long sleeves. It was only a matter of time before the brand ended up in Starburst. Fast forward to this spring and its has made its amazing debut with some of the strongest most desirable prints I have seen in years.  Primrose Parks perfect dresses would suit a wedding  / event just as much as they would a night out or slouch to the shops on a Sunday Morning ( dressed down with Veja trainers and cashmere of course). Prices from £105.00 for the Sandy shirt
