eternal child


i'm aware that my posts of late may have read like an extended weather whinge, so although i'm british and really that's what we do (!) i decided to channel this disappointment into considering a summer/winter hybrid dressing strategy. amidst all of this sighing and huffing at the rain, there has been much wardrobe confusion, with my heart darting between lovely summer appropriate denim cut offs (wink, wink kirsty lee) and chunky knitwear ala topshop AW08.
for the moment i'm veering towards the later; which may explain my ears pricking up when I came across Eternal Child's Fall collection. Clearly it was going to be a winner with a name like Tea Party, appealing to the current (and long time) romantic tea and cake fantasy that fills not just our heads, but our ditzy print floral dresses too.

For me, the greatest pieces in the collection are the jumpers. Paired with bare legs or sheer camisoles and undergarment dresses, they seem ideal for the summer-autumn crossover; cool sunny evenings in september. Nineteen-forties with a twist, there are casual skirt suit combos, two tone cable knit cardigans as well as the oversize variety, synoymous with stella mccartney.
Turkish designer Gül Gürdamar graduated from St Martins in 2003, and refreshingly is back in Istanbul, where the brainwork goes into each Eternal Child collection. The brand is stocked internationally, and Tea Party will be available from september.

channelling your inner child, sans pigtail? perfecte!

I'm really liking this collection! The forest green t-shirt dress is beautiful! I like the rose pattern that looks like a faux belt. =) And the purple top looks interesting.

This is a beautiful collection. Love the whole vibe of it. I especially like the cardigans, which are great with the weather we're getting at the moment.

that's so funny...i posted about eternal child on my blog about a week ago, and i felt strange talking about knitwear in july but i think it particularly caught my attention because of the awful london weather at the mo'...i just love the long cardigans and I am especially inspired by the colour palette. it's just so pretty!
