A little piece of print history…

What happens when one of the UK’s biggest high-street sweethearts pairs up with one of the UK’s most treasured galleries? Well, something pretty special…

If I had to narrow it down, I’d have to say the Victoria and Albert Museum is one of my favourite places in the city. It’s the kind of place so many Londoners have an affinity with (I remember re-falling in love with it after discovering Jazmine’s blog way back when)- and after studying Art and Photography at A Level, often found myself paying inspiration visits frequently, each time discovering something new and completely beautiful- and that’s without whiling away hours in their beautiful cafe! So, as you can imagine, this particular fashion pairing- between Oasis and the museum felt pretty special indeed…

I’ll be honest- there’s not many collaborations that’ll have me scouring the ‘net on launch day, coveting key pieces and lusting after the lookbook (of course it helps when someone as gorgeous as Laura Jackson is modelling too)- but when I heard about the Oasis x Victoria and Albert #MyLifeInPrint collection- it was hard to not get excited. With delicate pastel-hued botanical floral prints, including hand painted designs by 18th century illustrator William Kilburn and textile designer Anna Maria Garthwaite (all from archives over 300 years old)- you’re quite literally picking up a piece of history (with no visits to the gift shop necessary)- it’s safe to say the design team at Oasis did a pretty spectacular job, am I right? Now to decide if I can justify curating my own mini exhibit of the whole collection…
