LCM : Berthold AW16

Leave a Comment

Berthold introduced his new collection as a presentation show. Raimund Berthold's collection was inspired by the uniform worn by British soldiers in the Second World War. 

The garments had a variety of structures and interesting cuts, especially on the lapels of the jackets. 

I thought the positioning of the models was great and gave a clear view of the individual pieces as much as the collection as a whole. 

The sweep of black across the models and injection of yellow, ombré hughes created a strong posture and delivery of the collection. One I quite enjoyed.


Happy New Years - Dining Table

Happy Happy New Years 

When I thought of designing my New Years Day table, bright whites and glistening silvers came to my mind. Something about this combination gave it a fresh look, which is perfect for starting a new year. 

I didn't have silver place mats, but I wanted my theme to carry across the table well. I used silver paper plates under the white plates and bowls from IKEA. To have a fancy table isn't all about spending, it's about utilising and getting creative with what's hiding around your house. 

The place cards were another sale find from Selfridges in 2014. Coming in under 50p at further reductions, great as always!

The disposable table cloth is from Asda for £2. It's so easy to wipe clean, especially if you ever host for children. 
The napkin holders are from Next, coming in a set of 4, with detail of hammered metal. 

Some of the ornaments seen in the images above I used in previous posts, have a look back if you haven't seen it already

My colour schemes are usually inspired by something that catches my eye and from that I refine it by adding complimenting details that relate to that holiday or special occasion. 

The standout pots of popcorn came from Tiger in a set of 10 or 12, with a selection of polka dot and striped packets. They inject a little fun into the table and a celebratory touch, after all it is a happy holiday!

Thanks once again and for joining me with more festive tips, sale picks and creative ways to host your meals throughout the holidays.
