For most people the signs of Spring are all around – rain of course making it really cold, but also flowers starting to appear, the sun is rising a little earlier and that feeling of promise is in the air.
For me it is all about Winter, and no not this Winter, but next! I have just started my collection for next Winter and I am on the hunt for inspiration. I thought you might like to see this picture of a very Spencer & Rutherford Apartment – fabulous!
I am also being inspired by loads of glamour – rhinestones and sparkly thread are making a comeback, plus fabulous brightly coloured appliqué. All good for my designs! Check out this latest bag from Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton for Winter 0910.
It reminds me of my Tinkerbell for this season – lots of bright appliqué and rhinestones.
I must say names these days are getting a little scant on the ground. I was explaining just recently, at a gathering of glamour devotees, that finding a name for a new style bag is just as difficult as naming a new baby girl – some names just don’t work, even though you love them. With our english-y sounding name, I always try to find names that seem appropriate to the genre, but really there are never enough!… I am always open to suggestions…
Introducing Sher (and the very adorable Chanel), our Retail Manager, whom many of you will already know if you shop at our online store or at Armadale. She is also my gorgeous step-daughter! Sher has worked for Spencer and Rutherford for about 8 years and will probably be here for the rest of her natural life. She runs our retail stores and will be even more busy soon with 2 more stores opening before the end of the year including one at Chadstone. Sher loves all things cute, cuddly, fluffy, silky, sparkly and her fiancée Chris, who is cuddly but probably none of the other things. She hates when our website goes down and eating fish!
