Bowled Over

The head toppers were replicated on fabric where they mixed with heart and star emblems that sported legs and walked against a backdrop of pretty peach, and French navy.

The silhouette was crisp as well as light. The fun and feminine prints sheathed the body in light layers of fine cotton, while a more grown up custom-made navy jacquard of tiny golden hearts is sure to be a must-have.

Twenty-Seven Names designers Rachel Easting and Anjali Stewart took their inspiration from Belgian surrealist artist Rene Magritte for their winter 2014 collection titled “I’m Lost”. A few years ago the pair visited the Magritte Museum in Brussels and the idea of producing a collection around Magritte stuck.

Magritte’s famed symbols include the bowler hat and beating heat.

“We have a Magritte print in our workroom and Anjali has one on her wall at home,” said Easting.

Karen Walker’s new eyewear range for kids

Eighty was the average age of the models who posed for Karen Walker’s summer 2013 eyewear collection. Now the designer has gone to the other end of the age spectrum for her Karen Walker Forever second summer release for 2013 using models aged between three and five.


Walker says it represents the second chapter of the collection, originally shot by New York blogger Ari Seth Cohen. Who better to continue that sense of unbridled optimism and excitement for the future than a bunch of kids? “Kids and mature women are worlds apart in age but this group share a thread of optimism and happiness that excites us,” says Walker.


The eight-piece capsule features graphic white and gold metal frames with metallic blue reflective lenses that draws inspiration from cartoons, and includes four new styles – Siouxsie, Underground, Rowdy and Peek-A-Boo.

The range will be in store from September 5.
