Last November, I attended the Laura Ashley Spring/Summer 2013 Press Show in London.
And for me, one new collection really stood out…it’s called Bloomsbury. You can see it pictured above and directly below.
I’m a big fan of purples and lilacs, which may be one of the reasons I was so drawn to it. But I also love its fresh ‘spring’ colour palette with bright primrose yellow and vivid jade.
You may recognise one of the prints from the Bloomsbury collection…the one used to upholster the armchair on the right above.
It’s called Queen Mary and it’s from their archive. The print has been revived especially to mark Laura Ashley’s 60th Anniversary this year.
Here are some more images below…
And here are some of their other new collections…
If you’d like to see some more images from the Press Show, there’s a great post on the Laura Ashley blog.
All the items from the new collections will start to filter into the shops and on-line over the coming months.
