Marwood installs a bstore window display...

bStore kindly invited Marwood to do a window installation to coincide with a small capsule collection of Spring/Summer 2011 ties that we made exclusively for bstore. The are 4 spring shades of wool and silk patterns that are in store now and the rest of the display features some of the lace collection that will be available from June. Here are some snaps of us building the window yesterday on a sunny Sunday...

McCall's Vintage Tie Patterns

No functions of a well-made tie but they look impressively garish.

Peter Doig

The Marwood studio is ready for summer now.

These paintings by Scottish born artist, Peter Doig say British summertime to us... although we have realised it is a typically British image... being that it's abroad. The paintings are of the Lapeyrouse Wall in Trinidad where the artist found a home away from home. All the same, the colours and ambiance just sum it all up... easy, long, hazy summer strolls under cloud patched skies. Lovely. Maybe we should forget the idea of the still life shoot and capture the SS12 lookbook here with easy tailoring, open collars and silk ties that look like cotton, feel like jersey and don't feel too precious for such occasions? Not a likely trip but the ties can happen all the same.
