Tutti Fruity What A Cutie

It’s no secret that people love a bold print. In the spring, we were all about actual animal prints, and for summer, things are getting deliciously bold in fruit prints that have been spotted on everything from blouses to jeans. This trend has been circuiting for a while all summer and last year spring designers such as Moschino and Stella McCartney featured fruit prominently on their runways, and we spotted hoards of celebrities at Coachella this year like Solange Knowles and Katy Perry rocking pieces covered in lemons, cherries and other edible goods.

This fruit fashion tends to work best in small dose if you’re just trying out the look. Opt for pieces like little fruit inspired jewellery pieces are very wearable and add just the right amount of zest to any look. If you’re really feeling bold go for a fruit printed skirt or a pair of watermelon shorts with cute crop top. It's a really fun and flirty trend that is very reminiscent of the '90s and we're happy that its back.

London Barbie At Selfridges

If the past few years are any indication, Barbie has a thing for young London designers, that is. Louise Gray, Roksanda Ilincic, and Gareth Pugh have all made a special little something for the blonde and her boyfriend, whether it be Dalston-appropriate duds or, in Ilincic’s case, a London dream house. Now, in celebration of Selfridges’ new fourth floor toy shop, emerging Brit-based brands Sister by Sibling, Fred Butler, and Nasir Mazhar have each dressed five one-off dolls. Sibling’s Cozette McCreery, Sid Bryan, and Joe Bates designed a gaggle of knit looks, while Butler turned out a series of quirky, sculptural ensembles. Mazhar created some hard-edged street wear styles. All fifteen dolls are displayed and for sale in the toy shop’s Barbie department.
