The sun’s shining, there’s an ice cream van around every corner and the sound of children playing outside fills the air – it must be summer! But while you’re all making the most of the beautiful weather (finally, eh?!) we’re already starting to think about what’s next, attending the A/W previews for some our favourite brands. Christmas in July? Well yes, welcome to our crazy world!

A couple of weeks ago we were invited along to preview Oliver Bonas Christmas and A/W16 Collection at their showroom above their colourful store on Eastcastle Street in London’s West End.  With their signature style of pretty pastels mixed with more edgy, industrial design this brand is possibly our all-time favourite – and the new collection certainly doesn’t disappoint! Anneli Marinvoch was on hand to capture the pretty

The design team have kept things fresh with a cool palette of serenity blue and rose quartz (urm, hello pink glassware!) and perenially popular geometrics mixed with metallics for a contemporary winter vibe.  They haven’t completely lost the summer vibe either; there’s still a pop of neon here and there, and our favourite tropical motifs – flamingos, cacti and pinapples have all had a festive makeover ready to decorate your alternative Christmas tree this year!

The collection will be landing in store from September, but you’ll have to beat me there to get your hands on our favourite pieces! Visit to shop online

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
