Can you believe this stunning weather?
I have no idea how long its gonna hang around for – but I have absolutely loved the last few days! Its been making me think about how excited I get when its time to shop for the SPRING TIME – and if my last visit is anything to go by, Trilby Pheasant in Hawarden have definitely got us covered for the sunny days ahead.
When I popped in last week, my head was turned by two new designers, each one as delicious as the other and perfect for those of us who are needing an injection of quirky and kitsch this season.
Firstly, I’d like to introduce Sofie Schnoor. The family-owned, independent label SOFIE SCHNOOR was established by the designer SOFIE SCHNOOR in 2001. Sofie is driven by her creativity, designing only what she would wear herself or dress her own kids in. That honest, real-life basis gives the two brands a personal touch and an authentic feel that permeates all collections.
Sofie grew up with creative parents who were working in the fashion business with several retail shops. As a child she used to accompany her parents to factories, fashion fairs and all the way through the design process, and therefore knows a good, sellable design when she creates one.
It began with a shoe collection in 2001, followed by a children’s collection named PETIT BY SOFIE SCHNOOR in 2007, before a clothing collection joined the range. SOFIE SCHNOOR is currently represented in department stores, online, shop-in-shops, large and small retailers, concessions, and high-end design shops across all continents. SOFIE SCHNOOR is represented in 600 retail stores around the world, in addition to the brands three self-owned shops in Denmark.
True to the brand’s beginnings, its style is still edgy cool, sporty chic with a playful twist across both collections. The SOFIE SCHNOOR collections reflect the demand from women and children for fashionable, cool clothes that feel comfortable.
Personally – I absolutely LOVE this brand and I am not in the least bit surprised that Claire and her team do too – it is so kitsch and cool, I know that I’ll be making quite a few trips to TP over the next few weeks to pick up as many new season pieces as I can.
Next, is POUR MOI. This label is too gorgeous for words, here’s a bit more about them;
POUR MOI is a contemporary Italian brand specialized in women’s knitwear, collections feature both traditional and innovative fits as well as luxury fabrics. Designed and manufactured in Italy every collection follows the evolution of fashion and offers a unique look and feel, fitting seamlessly into every wardrobe. The brand go beyond simply offering trendy ready-to-wear products and it is present in the fast fashion retail market.
Naturally, Claire and her team have curated the best suited items from both ranges, and I urge you to pop in for a look – you won’t find these labels on the high street – you’ll find them in Trilby Pheasant – along with a whole load of gorgeous stuff that you won’t find anywhere else.
