Palette #2

Posted

Another quick snapshot of Milly's evolving colour palette... New pieces have continued to arrive in small but steady drops and the resulting range is very enticing, to say the least. Garments above are by Millicent select secondhand, Birgitta Helmersson, Elizabeth + Birgitta, Penny Sage, Chorus, Limb, Romance Was Born and *three* labels new to the store - Anya TamOvna Ovich and Pulka; the large lively scarves are by Monster Alphabets and the beanie/glove combinations are by Penelope Durston, of course (not all colours now available are pictured here).

It ended with a quiet gawp at some of the most wonderful new garments in the country (I reckon) - iridescent pleating, loopy lace, sequinned wisteria and brilliant graphic [...]
