It's now officially the festive season and we've got a watery Christmas flash trend for you to dive into this week.
It's a trend we've seem coming for while but with the Tokyo 2020 olympics looming Japanese inspired prints and graphics are popping up everywhere. From packaging and food, to cherry blossoms and fans, this trend looks great for boys, girls and baby.
We really enjoyed the Frida Kahlo exhibition currently on at the Victoria & Albert Museum showcasing a collection of her belongings and clothing.
It was amazing to see her iconic dresses and jewellery so close up, we predict lots of embroidery and Mexican inspired florals in the coming seasons!
The exhibition is on until 4th November, so plenty of time to go and see it!
We're over the rainbow for this new trend.
Rainbow stripes are back with a retro feel making them perfect for the 90's trend.
Check out the feed of Hugo Loves Tiki (one of our total faves) - showing off the best of their clothing range of fun bold prints. A trendy mashup of unisex style is sure to give you an eye for inspiration.

It is the first ever solo show of Picasso at the gallery and it does not disappoint!
With over 100 artworks the exhibition takes you through Picasso's life in the year 1932. It was incredible to see the amount of work he produced in just one year.
The exhibition is on till the 9th September, so plenty of time to get down there!

If you didn't get a chance to see any of the London Design Festival, then you need to get it in your diary for next year!
With events all over London there was so much to see. We headed down to the V&A, Villa Walala and Joy and Peace by Morag Myerscough and Luke Morgan.
Villa Walala was great fun. As you may be able to tell on this blog we are big fans of Camille Walala and always love seeing her designs.
Joy and Peace is a bright and playful installation in 2 parts, it brings a splash of colour to the city.

Hands up if you've spotted this trend! With the growing love and use of emojis, hand icons are everywhere. As positive icons on tees or fun all over prints, we can only see this trend getting bigger. Thumbs up to that!
Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! Last week we headed down to the lovely Fashion and Textiles Museum to check out 'The World of Anna Sui'.
A great exhibition with so much to see, you really feel as if you're in New York.
The show is on until 1st October, so make sure you get down there!
We also went to a talk 'Fashion Trend Forecasting' from Gwyneth Holland and Rae Jones, which was great, really interesting and informative. The Fashion and Textile Museum has a fantastic programme of talks and events, see their website for what's on.
P.s A date for your diary, from 25th May 2018 there will be 'Orla Kiely: A Life in Pattern' on at the Fashion and Textile Museum. We can't wait!
It's as easy as A, B, C! We are digging these fun uses of typography. Either spelling out words, being turned into characters or just creating fresh new patterns; letters and numbers are the way forward!
