A few weeks ago, I attended the Laura Ashley Autumn/Winter press preview. And despite the fact that I am having difficulties wrapping my mind around even thinking of winter yet, I loved the preview. To me, Laura Ashley represents some of the cosiest home-goods around.
(As a side note: I’ve just been reading up on Laura Ashley, the woman who founded the company years ago and she lived an extremely inspirational life.)
They’ve really outdone themselves in the bedding area this year, with several duvets and quilts that I wanted to wrap up in at the event and run away with. Laura Ashley always tends to focus on floral patterns, but one of the things they do so successfully is show that florals needn’t be relegated only to spring and summer.
Based on what I’ve seen from a few collections now, burgundy is in again this winter and the burgundy leather jacket pictured here last was my favourite piece of the day.
